It goes against proper ettiquite to have it at your house because it is looking like you are throwing the party for yourself and asking for presents. However, if they are the hosts and just using your house, it is a lot closer to fine. Just make sure they are collecting the RSVPs and doing all host duties or be prepared to hear from older ettiquite rule masters. 

It is just like we are using my apartment for a bachelorette meet and depart location. Technically it shouldn’t be at my house, but it is far easier to put it near me (parking and close to public transportation and the bars/restaurants we are going to) then to go to a bridesmaid’s house.

The only etiquette faux pas would be if you hosted your own.  If someone else is hosting it, then the location doesn’t really matter.

I think it’s fine as long as they are hosting.
