Good communication from owner, however property and furnishing were basic and in need of some TLC. More importantly, a private bath was NOT available.

Response from Michael:
Looks like our guest Holly had a different expectation for her stay. 1. Guest claimed that there is a "Private Bathroom" included when It's clearly stated in our listing that the bathroom(s) are "Shared". 2. Guest claimed of "considerable traffic noice with windows open". Uh... You can close the windows. Duh. 3. Guest claimed that the Living Room furniture has "considerable wear and uncomfortable". ... First complaint on this out of more than 100 reviews. Thanks for validating the rest of our Positive ratings. 4. Guest complained that the TV didn't work. Well now... if you READ the description, you'd have known that we don't offer TV and that we encourage our guests to relax and enjoy each others company instead. Duh #2. 5. Guest complained of dirty cabinets and fridge. Once again, thanks for further validating the more than 100 stellar reviews. In short, ya just can't please everyone and that's that. There's always going to be people who are extremely uptight, walk around with a negative outlook on life and consistently look for things to complain about. Those are not the kind of guests we hope to have stay with us and would quickly like to direct them on over to the Ritz. :-)

We love entertaining guests from all over the world. I have a hospitality and culinary background from coastal South Carolina and enjoy playing music and coaching sports. It's always great to meet new couples and hear about their travel experiences.
