Aloha Melanie! We are truly sorry that we were unable to do a better job as hosts during your stay, and have taken the unusual step of sending you a full refund for the entire amount. The baby noise in particular was a one-off; we do not usually have young children or babies staying with us. We will also consider how to best explain the "separate entrance" in the description. The idea is that you don't have to go through the rest of the house to get to your room. That said, we do feel as if you were expecting more of a hotel experience, and we would take this opportunity to communicate with potential guests, particularly those whose experience with Airbnb may be limited. While some Airbnb hosts and properties are solely devoted to their guests, many are more casual in the sense that you are staying with a family who are living their day-to-day lives while hosting.

A hotel might be the ticket. We offer superb value for money, but we are definitely not a hotel.
