I live in the Skycomish District of Washington state and am having an increasing problem with vacation rentals. I have lived in this home for over 40 years and recently one of these businesses moved into the cabin next door. It is now a constant party house. The average vacation renter respects no rules or residents. I have called the police more times that I can count and they say there is nothing they can do. The county council refuses to address the issue and I am now ready to sell my land. What people don't understand is that if you let the rental companies do what they like then the next house they buy might be next door to you! Vacation rentals are a large business industry and and if it is to exist in residential in neighborhoods it needs regulation. It's plain too see that and the only peoples rights that are being violated are the neighboring home owners who are forced to put up with this.

Shut down all the illegal vacation rentals, throughout the State. Only the rich get richer. Real estate agents are the major cause of this problem.

I think it should be left to the property owner to say how long (or short) someone can stay with them. It should not be left to the government to say "Hey you, you better not be letting anyone from elsewhwere stay at your house!!"
I do see the point about people being noisy, and maybe not having enough parking in some cases, but that can be regulated pretty easily.
But the complaint of "they're bad because they exist" is not acceptable to me. Tolerance should be practiced on both sides of this debate, no matter how passionate it becomes. In short;
I'm not for killing all the fish in the ocean just because a few don't taste good for eating! And that's all I have to say on that.
