Antwort von G. Jonathan:
Cat, as mentioned before, I appreciate the feedback regarding the back driveway; however, your group is the only group, since we acquired the property 5 years ago, to have any trouble navigating the driveway – and, we have had catering trucks and 15 passenger vans come into and out of that driveway. Given your group left several empty bottles of alcohol behind, I hope alcohol did not play a part in the reason for the navigation issues.
With regard to the furniture, as mentioned in the listing, my family and I live in the main house, so when the pool house is not rented, we use it AS A POOL HOUSE, which means we use it for lounging, entertaining, and cooking with friends and family while spending time in and around the pool or sauna. Given the environment, situations, and uses, the furniture in the pool house is not new, top-of-the-line, designer furniture; THAT SAID, all of the listing photos are up-to-date and accurate, so you (and any other potential guests) may see the furniture available for your use and enjoyment.
Regarding the linens, I, personally, washed the linens the evening before your arrival and placed them in the pool house hours before your arrival. Again, while we have NEVER received complaints of linens being "stale", if that was the case for your visit, I am extremely sorry. My only criticism is, if you felt the linens were not up to standard, why did you not let me know at the time. Throughout your stay (and after you left), I asked on several occasions if everything was OK, and you said it was. I provided you my cell phone #, for you to contact me if anything was amiss, and I did not hear from you, except when your friend needed help changing her tire, with which I promptly and gladly assisted.
As my other reviews attest, I work very hard to provide all guests a great experience and strive to be attentive to any concerns or constructive feedback. Guests have comfortably stayed in the pool house for several days and weeks without criticism, so it is tough to hear that you did not feel comfortable staying for more than a single evening. Understanding, everyone has different tastes and preferences, it seems while our home is (and has been) a great “fit” for many people, it was not the “right fit” for you and your friends. Hopefully, you find more suitable accommodations for your next gathering; I wish you and your friends the best.
