Hi Debb- I so enjoyed you as a guest- your communications were terrific and you are a very caring guest. Come back and see us soon. I am here now and thought the same thing about how quiet it is as I sleep with both doors open. The birds actually chirped me awake this morning :). Aloha nui loa, Neva

Response from Neva:

Aloha David! Thank you again for your stay, we always appreciate a lively guest! I am sorry the bed was not to your comfort level. We have hosted 300+ guests and never quite heard a comment like yours, but everybody is allowed their opinion and a mattress if a very personal opinion. Indeed it is a mattress and it is a firm mattress with a $200+ topper that is specifically designed NOT to be a "HOT" memory foam topper (yes, I splurged for a good one) on it to help accommodate everybody. We had a mattress that was "too soft" and had lots of negative comments, so we got a firm mattress and certain folks found it fabulous and others too hard- so we added the topper. We also had guests ask for a place to store their unused suitcases, so we changed out the basic box spring for a "smart base bed frame" that gave more room under the bed. I sleep on this bed and foundation 4 months out of the year and I am perfect but I understand what works for me did not for you. Here is the write up on the foundation: "The Spa Sensations Steel Smart Base Bed Frame is a steel bed foundation that eliminates the need for a box spring". Again, I am so sorry you did not find the comfort to your liking. We do have the two twin mattresses on the sofa that are "plush" I guess that could have been used as an alternative.
Finally, of course we know a great AirBnB user reads the instructions and house rules, thank you! That includes contacting me directly if I can help you with something vs writing a review and telling me on a public forum for the first time :). Not all my guests are AirBnB users and I do not get to meet or "vet" all guests and they do not get a house rules and we were having trouble so opted for a subtle way of asking for consideration of my slice of aloha with 3 small picture frames. I appreciate your comments and next time feel free to call or email me and share them with me or your host in person. And yes, I do keep my unit maintained and up to date with any profits from my rentals and also keep my rates $25-$100 a night less than other comparable units as I feel it allows my guests to have a nice place to stay in downtown where they may feel welcome and comfortable. I wish you many safe travels and plusher mattresses. Warmest aloha, Neva

Response from Neva:

Aloha Phillip- Thank you for your stay and last minute booking. I am always weary of accepting last minute guests as there is no time to get to know each other. The unit is my home 4 months out of the year but I am off island the majority of the time as my listing explains. A management company books my unit out beyond AirBnB and we found it important after several incidents to let these guests understand they are renting my home not a hotel room that they could be careless with and pillage. These subtle notes stopped the bad behavior and are not directed at fabulous AirBnB guests. Safe travels and next time book in advance so we can get to know each other! Mahalo, Neva
