It is true that the loft which is normally a silent retreat, was full of people, I was really sick but had organized and had to organzie the open studios which takes place once a year. That said, I have reflected on various things, which I shall make clear. The space is not a space for 'lovers'. Apart from one bedroom no.3 which is private, and was offered as described and paid for, has a platform bed and no en-suite bathroom, so when I can , I offer a 'free' upgrade to an ensuite. I'm not a hotel and at 75 dollars a night for two, the local hotel Apogia being over 250 US, you can't expect the same. My living room and kitchen is available to use, and you can be sociable with other guests. Again it's air bnb, you are in someone's home and not in a hotel. If you want a lovey time, best to not be in a shared space! You were at any time able to go use the private and silent room but you chose not too. You chose not to use the kitchen and not to be social. It is your prerogative, but it was a bit strange. I had home made soup I offered you , and you preferred ready made instant soup, I can't help that, but again, if you want to keep yourselves to yourselves, really, you should not be renting a shared space. That said, all would have been fine probably under any other week of the year, although of course I reserve the right to have other guests, air bnb or otherwise. It's my home. It is peaceful here, normally it is only me working and painting. At the moment I have two air bnb guests and we take it in turn to cook, it's really very nice. So I think as in many times when there is disappointment, there were different expectations. and If I caused that I'm sorry, but I return to the premise of shared space vs your own apartment, which I feel you should have rented. I'm sorry you had a bad experience. I am now going to pay attention before and if I accept couples and have already suggest to one they don't come, and I shall make it clear, that it's not a hotel! As for saftety, you should never leave anything anywhere in a car. My daughter left something in a car in an underground car park in Bordeaux, in the 'best' part of Bordeaux, with security cameras etc. for two hours and the car was broken into. It does not matter where you are, that is a good policy, and rather than being grateful for having free parking, which is not normally included, you complain, which I find rather astonishing. In life, we can chose to be grateful or to be unhappy. As I said, I'm sorry you were unhappy, and I'm sorry you did not choose the more private room, you used the other shower room anyway, and not the ensuite one, so I think you would have felt better, but I hope we all learn from this experience.
