How messy does your house have to be to make people think that someone broke in? Clean up every once in a while OP. YDI in my opinion.
The real question here is why are your neighbors looking through your windows and how often do they do it
Well, #6, if the neighbors peer in often then they would already know how messy OP is. Considering they freaked out and thought it was a burglar says that it's not something they normally do. Perhaps house sitting since OP is on vacation. Although, considering OP didnt even leave yet, it is a rather fast check up imo.
Also, where I live the houses are really close together. Like 2 feet apart. It's possible the neighbour was in their house and saw the mess if there are windows on the same side of the houses. In my house the upstairs bathroom window is directly across from the bathroom window of our neighbours house. Thankfully we both have shades/curtains drawn at all times. Another option is that op could've been walking by the house on the street and could see through the window easily without even stepping foot on their lawn. It all depends how close the houses are. I highly doubt the neighbour likes to look through their window all the time, but also calls the police on behalf of the neighbour.
Why would you leave for vacation with your house a mess? Coming home to a messy house would instantly kill the good vibes from the vacation.
