Thanks Allie for your comments & remarks! I am glad you & your party had a good time at my home. That is why it is crucial to be out at 10:00 am so that it gives me a chance to get the cleaning done in time.
I really didn’t think check-in was an issue since most of you were arriving after 6:00 pm.
Paperwork is always before Keys. Not sure why you would have thought you were getting more than a large open apartment suite with Deck, Pool, Hot Tub, for that low of a price? I had a discussion with another guest regarding paper work, and they said of all the Airbnb's they stayed at, all the really nice accommodations had a lease and condition report which by the way protects both sides and Airbnb also promotes having them. I do consider my places to be very nice so definitely paper before keys.
If my being there was a concern you should have asked who else lived in the house and I would have told you. Most people are happy I am there in case they need anything I am there to assist them immediately and if that is a concern it makes me wonder why.
Yes, I must definitely be sensitive to the above normal outside noise levels for the respect of my neighbours. I have in my house rules on the site no parties and or events but I let you have your get together on the condition that my neighbours would not be disturbed. If the laughing and talking woke me up out of a sound sleep, I am sure that it also woke my neighbours up as well.
I have hosted many people with children and it is easier to remove the breakables rather than to have to replace them. This has worked out fine in the past with everyone happy. Kids are always welcome & well behaved is always the best for all. You are always welcome back, the Pool & Hot Tub are waiting!
