Response from Jo Ann:

Hi Maia,
I'm so very sorry you were less than thrilled about your stay.
Sadly it's not possible to please everyone with the feeling of a bed or size of the bed. I,m so sorry you didn't sleep well.
Maia, no where in my listing on Airbnb does it say I provide shampoo.
Yes I do ask for a walk through the suite with every guest prior to their Noon check out time. It's mainly to say good bye, a thank you & to look around to make certain you've not left anything behind. I asked you to provide a convenient time that was anytime prior to Noon which you did ... but convenient for you. In no way was an intention for you alter your check out time.
I do not hear conversations of my guests, I may hear murmuring of voices at best. When a person is living above you yes you will hear the person if they are loud or even walking across the room. I tiptoe in bare feet in order to as quiet as possible and I had no visitors during your stay so was alone.
Because of my physical illness I am unable to do almost everything which means I watch a lot of TV. You heard me getting in & out of my reclining chair & going to the kitchen which is not constantly. I feel more like it's occasionally.
Maia please know I am deeply sorry for your negative experience. I do
take your feedback seriously & appreciate your honesty.
Warmest Regards
