Thanks for the feedback regarding the pictures vs. reality. You're absolutely right. While we consider the changes to be largely improvements, it can be disorienting for it not to match. We'll amend that!
A couple things that I would like to make clear for future guests though: the fact that the cats are indoor/outdoor but *mostly* indoor was fully discussed long before your stay. It's not reasonable to think that an animal that lives in the house will not be in the house. There isn't anything we could have done as hosts about this. It's the nature of the place that we rent. You shared that your friend had allergy so I was explicit that the cats have full run of the house and that we could keep them out of all the bedrooms which we did for a week prior to your stay.
Second: The sheets and blankets were, of course, clean. They just came out of the wash that same day. We would NEVER rent out rooms with unclean sheets. I'm not sure what led to that assumption, but we were 100% available for communication if you had any questions at all about the space.
I have rented out many houses and rooms both domestically and abroad and I understand it was your first time renting through Airbnb. It's a great resource and I hope you give it another chance, but I also hope you remember that you are sharing someones home, not a hotel, and the details of daily life are a part of the package.
