Marcia é uma excelente host! Muito atenciosa e muito detalhista! A casa estava bem arrumada, com tudo o que precisavamos e mais um pouco. Alem disso, a casa em si é um capitulo a parte! Muito confortavel e com uma vista incrível! A vizinhança é muito bonita! Realmente valeu muito a pena passar em dias na casa da Marcia! Voltaríamos com certeza!!!

Response from Marcia:
This guest did not look at the house rules before arriving. The first day this guest "took over the house" and did not observe the description of the space included in the listing. I greeted him and gave him the password to the space to enter and exit. I printed out the airbnb description the next day and suggested that he read it. The following days he respected my space. The amenities did include a hairdryer but I notice that it was not in the location and missing when these guests left. The housekeepers did not mention that it was missing but I will buy a new one. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. This house is in the forest and located on Forest View Ave in Hillsborough. There are bugs but the quarters are cleaned in-between guest to remove all present prior to a guest arrival. Bugs may enter the space especially if the spacious windows are left open as this guest may have done. The master bedroom has a deck with a bay view that is wonderful when the doors and windows remain open yet that does invite bugs.
