I live in such a place, and we have people who want to visit.

There are, in my case, several categories of visitors

  • the ones I really want to see, they also want to see me and we both know that. It is a pleasure to host them and we have a great time. For some reason they are also the ones who understand that they are on vacation and I am not. Anyway, I love to have them at my place.

  • the ones i do not want to see too much but for various reasons (family, mostly) they expect me to host them (or the ones who had the brilliant idea of inviting them on my behalf think so). I try to discourage them, using more or less moral tricks.

  • then there are the ones I do not want to see, full stop (not because I do not like them but because I am not a hotel or couchsurfer host). I just tell them that it is not possible. Either they understand or they do not, in the latter case I am relieved that they did not come because they probbaly would behave probably been complicated guests.

Sorry if this sound impolite - everyone is different and some people love to have an open house. I do not and want to choose the ones I host (and then, when I host them, this is a fantastic stay for everyone).

There is also the possibility to have someone coming when you are on vacation, to "keep the house safe". I tend to use this for the second category of guests.
