In our residential area, some company is buying houses and converting them to airbnb rentals. It often means they add bedrooms and baths, with less common area.
Our friends who live next to them experience a revolving door of renters, some of whom really like to partay. Our friends want to leave the windows of their homes open but the noise and cigarette smoke are bummers.
Last night one of them apparently flicked his cigarette into a trash can, which burned, melted and set the fence on fire. That's one good thing about trying to sleep with the windows open: you can smell the smoke before your house catches fire and burns down.
They called the police, who said nothing they can do, it's a civil matter. So now they're going through the process of figuring out who the anonymous company is who owns the house.
Sometimes at neighborhood parties, the talk breaks out into "I hope an Airbnb rental company doesn't buy the home for sale next to us."
