Question for retirees living in popular vacation spots

|My husband and I live in FL about 5 miles from the Gulf of Mexico. We have been married for less than 2 yrs after reuniting after more than 40 yrs. So I have remet his family members who were children and teenagers the last time I saw them. They have been very nice in welcoming me as "family" after so many years, but we have actually spent very limited time with them because of the 1200 miles separation. My problem is that we are planning a visit to my family this fall conciding with a family wedding. We were recently contacted by my husband's sister asking to visit us during the time when we will be out of state. When he told her we wouldn't be home, she asked to use our home anyway, along with her husband, 2 adult sons, one with a wife and yr old baby. I told my husband I wasn't comfortable with them using our home while we were not home. He was fine with my decision, but now I'm wondering if I'm being unreasonable. What would you do?|
