Haven't read all the replies, but just on OP - no I don't mind at all. We moved a couple of hrs away to the country/coast of Vic. I would much rather have visitors then go to Melbourne to see them - I am happiest at home and dont' mind hosting/cooking/entertaining - I actually find it fun.
We kinda have an open house policy and welcome all our mates - but they have to let us know in advance. I couldn't do it every weekend - maybe every 2nd or something.
My only pet gripe is when guests don't bring a gesture (ie. bottle of wine, packet of chips, some fruit, chocolate or some token item). DH and I are both chefs so happy to cook and don't want ppl to bring any food as such - but an offer is nice.
And I like them to help clean up after we eat and make the bed/strip the bed before they leave.
Aside from that, they are welcome most of the time.
But to each their own.
