As everything in life involves some sort of risk, you'd have a very limited life indeed if you always feared the worst!  For example - would anyone ever get married, drive a car, have a baby???

Rather than argue over the length of the odds of a home rental going badly wrong one should consider the far reaching financial & social consequences should one's home end up, for example as a cannabis factory & decide on that basis if it is worth the risk.

 Worst one i had was cement down the toilets,plug holes etc after we had to evict them.

 I repeat ive had many tennents in many houses/flats with no probs.

In the examples you give one remains in a certain amount of control, rent out your home & go on holiday & you have no control over what happens to your home while you are away. A relative can keep an eye on the place but the law does not allow random access to inspect a rented property.

A short term rental with an absent landlord has far more potential to go wrong. As well as being absent, the landlord is not experienced, the house is a home, not a rental property & the type of tenant renting short term is far more likely to cause problems than, say a working local family needing long term accommodation...imho....

All the above is of course arguable because the argument centres around the length of the odds of something actually going amiss & those odds would vary according to location & type/size of property etc, anyway.

What is certain that returning from an extended holiday to find one's home unlivable in would be disastrous & the decision to rent or not should be taken on how the individual would feel about the possibility of that scenario & how the thought of it might impinge on their holiday enjoyment rather than trying to convince themselves that the odds of it actually happening may or may not be slight.

If they paid the leccy and gave you a share in the profits its a win win situation. Oh and they must tidy up after themselves.
