I stay at short-term rentals, too, through VRBO. I like them so much that I'll never stay at a noisy, uncomfortable hotel again.

I notice that the paperwork that we sign each time we rent includes a lot of provisions and warnings against partying and noise. Curfew hours are usually listed, as well as limits on how many people can stay. Often, even though it's a stand-alone home with the owner not living on premises, the owner will be there at first to check you out as you arrive and make sure you're not bringing along way more people than you've listed on the paperwork.

Since we're a older couple with no kids/guests/pets, and don't smoke, the owners are usually very happy with us. We try to book the same places over again since we're familiar with the place and the people.
