As evidenced by my other reviews, I certainly do not strive to be a mediocre host. Yes, I’ll admit that the dogs needed a bath. This is rare that they don’t get to the groomer but it happened. I leave the daytime temperature at 77 when no one is home and 73 degrees at night but DID grant your requested 68 degrees after you arrived which took about an hour to reach. (Is 68 degrees even a respectful request considering an entire house has to be cooled just to accommodate one guest?) And yes, I gave you an additional fan in the mean time. The bed IS NOT an air mattress although there is a comfort feature on both sides that allows guests to control the firmness if they choose. Regarding the laundry, yes, I definitely suggested you wash your “swimsuit” out in the sink or shower. Your reservation was made at the last minute with a late arrival, I do not run my washer and dryer for one swimsuit, I did offer you detergent and a hanger which is appropriate for swimwear. As mentioned before, you “must love dogs,.” If you go in and out of the house, they will definitely welcome you and bark. This barking doesn’t last and they are put to bed in the kennels at 10:30. I find it disappointing that you were over the top friendly, conversational, inquisitive, and complimentary (most specifically about my attention to detail and kindness) but choose to write a completely different view of your stay. Lastly, I offer all of my “summer time price” return bookings the option of messaging me to receive the same price if they book again as seasonal prices change. This doesn’t undercut Airbnb. It’s a courtesy.
Just an FYI- your suggestion to other guests to find and book a 2.5 Star hotel is mid-leading. This is Naples, Florida. You can’t book a tent in 100 degree weather rented out by a homeless person for $47 a night with no added cleaning fees/additional person fees which also includes unlimited bottled water, 68 degree air conditioning, and a beautiful space, let alone a hotel which is why you’re on Air Bnb.
