Response from Jessica & Doug:

We were very disappointed to read Elmas' review. The great pride we take as hosts is evident in our over 170 5- star reviews.

Upon Elmas' arrival we learned the she and her daughter have a paralyzing fear of dogs. We clearly state in the listing and profile that we have free roaming dogs who are enthusiastic greeters. In response to this fear, Doug was nearly continuously present at the house and went to great effort to ensure their comfort and keep the dogs in a separate room.

Given her surprise at the presence of the dogs, we suspected that Elmas may not have read the listing and profile prior to booking. This was confirmed when we read her review. Elmas mentions that her room was small and that she was unaware of its size or the size of the other rooms in the house. The description section of the listing for the room clearly states that it sleeps 2 and that it is 174 s/f - 16.2 s/m. This description section also includes the dimensions for all of the other rooms in the house. Elmas had asked if her small child could stay in the bed with her and her husband but when she arrived, she requested the addition of a twin bed and, as a result, the room was crowded. When booking, Elmas did not ask if we had larger rooms nor did she ask to be moved to a larger room during her stay, which we would have gladly done.

During Elmas' visit, Jessica had been traveling and was also recovering from bronchitis. On the one day of the visit that she was in town, she had arrived here from Maine on a 5:30am flight and was understandably very tired. Doug, who was serving breakfast on that morning to Elmas and her family, had mentioned to Elmas that Jessica was not feeling well.

The description in Elmas' review of the transportation options is inaccurate. We are just a couple of miles from the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges and a few blocks from the C train which travels directly to Manhattan. There are also several options that do involve transfers but that is the nature of the NYC subway system. Given the close proximity of the bridges, lower Manhattan can be reached by taxi for $16-$25 and take less than half an hour. A $40 fare will take you quite far uptown.

Regarding wifi service, this is the first time we have heard of a problem and will certainly look into it.
