Thanks for your thoughts here and love your perspective on being a positive advocate for the industry. I understand your concern on the perception (and more accurately misconception) that STRs in neighborhoods can lead to disruptions such as your example of "party houses".
The article you referenced was created with a few factors in mind:
1. A large portion of the listings on our marketplace are larger capacity homes which means that there are quite a few owners who are handling large groups on a regular basis and sometimes, exclusively.
2. While we are not promoting exceeding max capacity in your space, there are tips in the video that could be used for anyone looking to make their current space more efficient to accommodate more travelers at the owner's discretion.
Additionally, we understand the need for creating more resources for owners to get more involved in breaking down stigmas and myths associated with vacation rentals, so we are preparing to roll out Vrbo Advocates in the coming months. As this is a new program still being built out, the site itself may seem a bit limited at this point, so consider this a preview.
Again, thanks for your feedback and (as always) keep it comin'!
