Thank you for your kind words in the beginning of your review. In the description of the house it is written "Penelope's House, is a small independent home, situated in the area of a building apartment, with it's private cute garden!" Indeed it owns the garden and the area in front of the house (60sq.meters). No stranger can pass this area or park his car ensuring your privacy. Outside this area, indeed, there's the private parking area of the building but about the curtains you mentioned, all the ground floor houses can be watched from the outside unless it's some kind of a villa that would cost you much more to stay! Finally ,as you may see from the photos, it's clearly shown there are no tables and furniture in the garden and there is no such thing in the description whatsoever. I want also to mention that you had ask about that before coming and we were quite clear about the usage of the garden. We will make it more clear in the description because our goal is keep getting better and take seriously into consideration our guest's private feedback.
