Hi Mark, know what you mean about strangers in your home. Our builder actually handles the rentals for another home he built in the same area - and he said there have been no problems as the cost is over $250 per night - so the folks that are renting are not going to wreck it. The college (party) crowd can't afford it. Be wary of family and friends as they are often more likely to take advantage of you than a stranger. We should start a thread on this on the discussion boards.
