Response from Jeff:

Hello Carney Family
Thank you for the kind words and review. A highlight of all our personal trips is the plenty of front porch time where we all have cocktails and relax playing board games, sometimes until the wee hours of the morning.
So glad you had a good trip, hopefully we will see you again in the future.

Response from Jeff:

Thank you for the thorough comment, I'm sure it will be helpful for others in the future.

Just to add a few responses for future guests:
Previous and subsequent guests have not mentioned any issues with the queen bedroom AC, and it worked fine just prior.
The hot water heater is on demand, so it heats water as needed. The temp does vary some and it may take a little adjusting.
The washer and dryer are used every single week during house turnover for multiple loads in a short time frame. The Caribbean has very high humidity so it does take longer to dry clothing if you're used to dry climates.
Our care takers gauge how much attention guests need, some you never hear from and they go with the flow. Others need lots of attention, perhaps they misjudged.
All properties on Vieques use propane for hot water and cooking, there are no natural gas lines. We have multiple tanks, when one goes out it's a relatively easy process to switch the tanks over as you just flip a switch. Our care takers explained the process over the phone and it was resolved.
Right before you arrived the AC in our SUV was not working correctly. We again apologize for that and we offered a full refund of the SUV to rent a vehicle at a rental agency or a discount if they decided to keep it. The AC in the car is scheduled to be repaired.

We do feel we offer a great value for our accommodations. No matter where one stays one can always find something to be improved. We always take guest feedback and fix issues or improve on them. Without comments and feedback how would we know what to improve on, so we do appreciate the review.

As far as our home being 'Comfort Second' I hope you would reconsider that statement. Our care takers and I really strive to make every guest's vacation enjoyable and comfortable. We average over 265 rented days each year and have multiple repeat guests every season. As far as being no frills, we have 100% Air Conditioning in the home which few houses offer, many games, books, movies, beach gear, stocked kitchen and most importantly a safe environment.

We do hope you enjoyed your stay, hope all is well.
