I don't know if this is a problem with BV or if it's the result of one of the mods I have on my game but when I call any of my sims on the phone.  I have the option to just talk, or invite as houseguest (3 days).  I know longer have the invite over option.  When I tried doing the invite as houseguest option, a box popped up in the corner say something like, "I do need a vacation, I'll take the first flight there."  At the time my sims weren't on vacation and the person I had invited over never showed up at the house.  Has anyone else had this problem or is it just me?

The houseguest option is for the new vacation locals.  (The new sims that live in the vacation neighborhoods.)  They are the ones who will be going on vacation by visiting your playable sims.  Typically when I invite them over, they come the next day around 10 am, and so you have to keep an eye out for them.  Sometimes they will ring the bell and other times they will just stand by the mailbox, but you will have to greet them before they will stay.

You will have no control over their actions, so you just have to sorta keep an eye on them and monitor their needs that way.  I usually leave something out for them to eat at their leisure.  If their needs get too low and they haven't done anything to fix them, they will not stay the 3 full days, but pack up and leave.  They'll autonomously sleep when they're ready to, or if you are lover's with them they will usually sleep after a good round of woohoo...

You should find that if you call one of the regular townies, that you will still have the regular invite option for them.  

Have fun!

That took me awhile to figure out Auronette. I realize now that 10 am is the start point for anything dealing with vacation locals, or my downtown hotel lots.  So I now make plans to go to the community lots in the mornings or make sure the sim is off the day I want to invite a vacation local over.

You have to have your Sim call a vacation acquaintance. It will be one of the options available by phone.

The guest arrives the following morning around 10 AM.

So you can't just call anyone over to stay for a bit?

The options on the phone should have change to fit the sim you are inviting over, ie: normal, neighborhood and playables, should have the invite over option when you call.  The options change for vacation locals and tourist, ie:Twikkii Island local, the invite over for houseguest (I think) should come up. Since you have to travel to their neighborhoods by airline, then they have to do the same. Then they will arrive the next day.
