Response from Fiona:

I enjoyed initial communications with Robert and anticipated their 4-hour late arrival. Via email, Robert said that "the only special request at the moment would be for hypoallergenic bedding," so I assured him that there were no feathers, which pleased him. I had no idea they would be difficult and high-maintenance guests. I need to correct some of their comments. The bnb is advertised as a 'charming heritage suite,' which it is. The original house was built in 1908, classified heritage, yet the inside decor and mechanics are completely new. The main house was fully renovated and restored by a contractor in 2008 and the lower floor bnb suite was built new in 2011. The suite is small and complete, as indicated in the word 'compact.' I designed the queen bed to fit precisely between 3 walls, like a bed nook. I'm sorry the guests found this design feature troublesome and also that the stylish mirror and lamp above the sink did not meet their needs. Interestingly, Marie neglected to tell me, until her arrival at 8:30 that night, that she had a bad back and required a hard mattress. The box spring and mattress are firm and comfortable and everyone, including a 3-week summer guest with back issues, said the bed was great. To accommodate Marie, my husband cut a piece of plywood which we inserted under the mattress while the guests were out for dinner. I left them a note to wish them a good rest. There are no issues with air quality or heating, period. When the guests came over to our house the next day, our two large Rhodesian Ridgebacks (Robert said that Marie loved this breed) had left their habitual daily droppings along the front path. I had asked my husband to clean them up as I went out, but he hadn't done that by the time the guests came by. He did fetch me immediately from the conference 2 blocks away, but the guests had already left so there was no conversation.

Response from Fiona:

The suite is a bright, compact and charming lower floor of a small character house, as indicated in the description and photos. It is beautifully finished, furnished, and situated, with all amenities for a short-term stay. It is reasonably priced for a fully furnished sweet little space located so close to downtown.

There are windows on three sides, except in the bathroom. The suite has in-floor heating, fully opening thermal pane windows for cross-ventilation, and exhaust fans in the kitchen and bathroom. Unfortunately, Paulina and Danielle caused some damage with their bicycles and lack of care.

There is an extra-large claw foot tub with a showerhead, overhead shower rail and 360-degree curtain to prevent water from damaging the walls. During the pre-arranged cleaning in the first week, I found the bathroom floor and walls wet and half the shower curtain removed. I asked Paulina about this in an email but she did not respond. Had she let me know that she felt claustrophobic, I would have purchased and installed a clear shower curtain. I have done that now.

The suite is too small for two single people with loads of sports gear, clothes and luggage, for an extended stay. The second bedroom is more often and better used as an office, though it doubles as a bedroom when requested. We set up the 9-drawer dresser and a captain's bed especially for Paulina and Danielle, as they needed separate sleeping spaces. We have replaced the dresser and bed in favour of a desk and two chairs, until a second bedroom is again required.
