Response from Nancy Rose:

Thanks Ceil for your kind review. It was so nice meeting both you and your mom. I do note that I do not have airconditioning as generally, the Vineyard is a pleasant and cool as it has been this week. I try to be as environmentally careful as possible. I think that often, people do not read or remember all of the information which I provide including the location. As you note, I am outside of Edgartown but if people make use of the public transit right at the end of the street, it is not a problem. I'm sorry that did not work for you. Many older folks do stay but if you are not used to walking, then I agree, people should try for a location more central for their needs. My home is really set up for people who like to bike, kayak and generally move around, whether younger or older given its location to the bike path, the Land Bank Trails and Sengekontacket Pond. At any rate, as I am now severely limiting my hosting after this, my 6th year, I am glad that I met all of you and wish you all the best. Nancy

Thanks so much for your comments! And you are right! I do believe that we should take care of each other and at the least, offer the kinds of services and opportunities that ensure people's dignity. Of course, being liberal, I'm always interested in others' viewpoints -- well, maybe not Trump's! Be well. . .as I wind down have guests in my home -- a fascinating experience -- I certainly will reflect upon the many viewpoints that have voiced around the breakfast table!

Response from Nancy Rose:

Hi Devin. Thanks for your comments. This is a homestay, not a hotel; after having hundreds of guest through and being fully-booked requiring change-overs every couple of days, one learns to ask for simple courtesies, e.g., providing a beach towel and asking if you wouldn't mind putting it on the quilt before putting your bag on the bed. Also, being environmentally aware does require that we are careful, in this fragile environment, about electricity, water and recycling. So, as we realized that the automatic flood light on the walkway, lighted guests' trip into the house and into the bedroom, we felt it unnecessary to keep lights on, making it easier for guests, since they are upstairs and downstairs, to not have to be concerned about who was in or not. This is people's time away, and having to worry about necessary details is something I try to keep to a minimum. It's all a matter of experience over many years of hosting. All best wishes.

YOU are the reason the visit was so easy and fun. After hundreds of people have passed through my home, I have learned, when guests are great, it makes hosting look great! Thanks so much for coming!

Response from Nancy Rose:

Dear Mike! Many thanks for your lovely review and comments regarding the Cottage and what I am able to offer. As I always say to guests, it is absolutely not essential if one is uncomfortable to shower in our spacious outdoor shower. If one is nervous, as Carla apparently was, she would be welcomed to shower indoors. It is a Vineyard tradition, as noted in the description which I hope guests will read prior to booking, as we are aware, living on an island, of how to keep homes as comfortable as possible, particularly when we are not airconditioned. That is why is it build is a roomy, enclosed hot and cold water space, typical of most Vineyard and Cape homes. I'm sorry that Carla was uncomfortable as the majority of guests enjoy the fresh-air, treetops, sun or moon and stars overhead when outside!

It is true that the Cottage is not directly in town (as noted in the description and on the google map) but we have many homes that actually are remote, a mile or more down a dirt-road and so, the Cottage is actually located in a well-serviced neighborhood on a paved road. I just wanted to clarify as access to the bus is a 5 minute walk from my home on a lighted street.

I know that you booked very last minute and so, perhaps, didn't have time to read carefully the amenities, etc. However, it was a pleasure to have met you and wish you and Carla all the best! Nancy
