I love white interiors. I also love doing a lot of things besides constant cleaning and maintenance. Therefore I am balancing my love for white with my love for practicality.

Sometime, the nightmare becomes the neighbors'. The owner of the house behind our weekend house wasn't able to sell for his wildly optimistic price so he decided to rent it out, including as a wedding venue. Many weekends, there were 150-175 people for whom there wasn't adequate parking plus the septic system wasn't designed with that kind of use in mind and all of us downhill owners were quite nervous about it. The renters wanted absolute peace and quiet for their special day, but we all had yard work to do and lives to live. It was not fun.

Someone complained to the county, and they limited the weddings to two a year. And after we put up a gate and a no trespassing sign, the owner finally stopped telling his guests to trespass across our property to get to the beach. But, we still all hate the turnover and noise every week, and wish it could be banned completely. Be prepared for unhappy neighbors if your place becomes a popular destination.

There's a case of a woman who through airbnb rented her Palm Springs home to a vacationer and now she can't get him out. He's like a squatter and it's going to take from 3 to 6 months to evict him and thousands of dollars in lawyers fees. It's probably a system that works out for most people but do you want to chance that you'll get the nut?
