I apologise that you felt unwelcome in our home. That was not our intention.
I will agree that Pete and myself are not the chattiest of people, and we tend to keep to ourselves. Most reviews left about me do state that I am a quiet person.
I do think from this experience i have mis-represented the space on offer; as while they are not depicted or mentioned in the advertisement, the common areas (living room, kitchen, backyard area) are most definitely available for use by all people living within the space. Based on your review, I will be amending the advertisement to state that all common areas are included.
I wish you had given use more of a chance than one night; but due to a multitude of factors I believe you felt you could not do so.
When airbnb contacted me for mediation, they stated that the reason for changing the booking from 5 weeks to one night was because the room was too small. I felt at that time; that the room was accurately represented in the photos presented, and as it would be unlikely that I could find someone to fill that space within the first week, this was a fair penalty.
