I have friends who live on the water in Galveston who have a short term rental next door to them. They have a different group of people next door every single weekend. Sometimes up to 12 people in the house. They complain of the noise into the late night and early mornings, cars parked everywhere and trash littering the area. The police have had to be called several times. Is this what we want?
I'm all for people being able to do what they want with their properties, but there is a trend of people buying up desirable properties solely to be able to do this short term rental thing. We're not talking about weekenders occasionally renting it out here. Even if that is the case, everyone bought property in this neighborhood knowing (or they should have been notified by their realtors) that short term rentals were not allowed.
Again, look forward to a friendly, civil discussion!
Guess I'll see you guys next Monday night as well!
