She asked last summer if she could bring her kids over to swim. I said OK becuase I was put on the spot and couldn't think of a nice way to say no. Last year they only did it a couple of times, but this year it's been more often. Sometimes she calls and if I'm not home they come over. I've also noticed things moved around so I suspect they may come other times without calling.
I've had a friendly relationship with the family, but I don't really want them coming over for liability reasons. Plus, I feel like our privacy is being invaded.
What's a nice way to ask her to stop without pissing her off?

Our neighbors did this. We were honest that we liked our privacy and put the pool in for our family. We told them when they were invited and we had a BBQ it was a blast but we wanted time to enjoy our pool with others and just as a family. They were upset the mom more so than the dad. She liked being able to layout while her kids swam. The kids tried to come over many times we locked the gate and I just told them no. They thought I was mean but my kids really wanted to play other kids too. They finally put their own pool in and the neighbors on the other side of them finally annoyed them and they came and apologized to us. Said they had no realized how annoying it was to have even people you like at your house everyday. We are friends again.
