We appreciate you staying with us & your feedback. I'm sure when you are juggling all the kids, their car seats & traveling w/a larger group, a shared driveway--with the larger vehicles people often have today--might make the driveway feel tighter than what you are used to at home. Nonetheless, we feel fortunate that we can provide free, off-street parking for each of our units, that is also well lit. We are happy everyone was able to enjoy hot showers w/great water pressure daily and that the kitchen had what you needed for creating simple meals. We are glad as well that the kids found the games fun. We always sleep like babies when we have room darkening curtains too....sure that probably helped out at naptime for the little ones.
We apologize if you felt a cleaning fee or that a checkout list was unnecessary and/or unreasonable. Certainly you must realize that we are only able to keep our standards high & expenses down (if guests also agree in advance when initially booking, as you did) to complete certain checkout procedures when they are leaving. In a nutshell, 8 people stayed with us (for what we usually charge for 4) with no extra taxes or additional person fees like hotels charge. We overlooked the 2 extra people, despite our maximum capacity of 6. That is the beauty of AirBnB! Simple check out routines expedite the cleaner process for each and every stay. We'd rather our cleaners focus their time & energy on thoroughly cleaning each unit. We make these procedures known before booking & before (Website hidden by Airbnb) expectations are clear in advance. We have found that most guests prefer this. Thanks again for all the feedback and for staying with us.
