Thank you for all the suggestions that you provided. We take them all to heart and work hard to improve our guests experience.
1) We can appreciate the need for shade so we have now provided an additional umbrella on the rear deck. It is regrettable that you did not notify us of the concern during your stay. We would have suggested taking the front deck umbrella to the back deck as other guests have done. We already provide a table and chairs so we are unclear as to why these were not satisfactory.
2) & 3) We can understand the need for more seating at the beach so along with the patio set provided we will leave two additional beach chairs. Your review highlights the importance of checking on amenities prior to booking a property. We do not have dressers, but we provide 2 night stands in each room which offer 4 drawers, closets with hangers & top shelf, and luggage racks.
4) As you have stated we have notified guests as required by AirBnB in our listing of these security features in advance of booking. By booking you have acknowledged these security features are present. We value our guests privacy and safety. Cameras are only used if security issues arise.
5) We will review our thermostat settings to help ensure guest comfort in the evenings. Communicating any problems that may arise during your stay gives us an opportunity to help make your stay more enjoyable. We have provided guests with a clear set of rules, which you have acknowledged upon booking. We provide clear instructions for thermostat use in multiple locations: on the thermostat, in the manual, and in the booking rules. Deliberately manipulating WiFi settings without notifying the Owners undermines the trust we have in you as a guest. I encourage you to discuss any rules/ instructions you do not agree with in advance to avoid frustration. We would have explained the preset program and how to adjust it.
We strongly encourage you to read Host Rules before booking and communicate any concerns with the Owner in advance. We hope that this helps with your next cottage stay.
