Holly Liter spends many weekends cleaning up vomit, picking up trash and explaining to her 11-year-old daughter what marijuana smells like.
"It can be a nightmare," she said.
Liter said she expected noise when she moved into a three-story Victorian home in Old Louisville, but a vacation spot next door was not part of the historic neighborhood's appeal.
One weekend, a married couple with three children in town for a family reunion might be staying next door. The next, she said, there might be a dozen college-aged frat members bragging about their sexual exploits just before a bachelor party. After that, she might see a handful of 20-somethings throwing up in her front yard after boozing it up on the city's Urban Bourbon Trail.
"They're up late, they drink a lot, there's been drug activity, lots of trash throwing," Liter said. "They're here for a good time, and that happens over the weekend, every weekend."
But Richard Wagner, 65, an Airbnb host who has been Liter's next-door neighbor for more than a decade, said he thinks she's overreacting.
"She likes to go to bed at 8 o'clock at night," he said. "And most people don’t go to bed at 8 o’clock at night."
