Response from Rachel:

This home is in the panoramic region of sedona.The positive aspect of the location is outstanding , unobstructed views. The less positive is that are not permitted to park on the roads in this region. The home listing specifies 8 guests and 2 cars for the main house [ 3 bedrooms ] and 10 guests / 3 cars if you rent the guest studio as well. You rented the main house [ 8 guests] and told me just prior to arrival that you had invited a further 7 guests to stay making a total of 15 ...and many more cars.If you had told me wen you made the inquiry i would have suggested you look for a larger home outside of the panoramic region. No one enjoys regulations but they are usually there for a good reason which benefits and considers the whole community as opposed to one group . The roads are narrow in our region and we are surrounded by beautiful tree's and wilderness...
There have been forest fires in the past and its crucial that fire trucks can have total access to the roads. I am very glad that you finally came forward with your intention to host many guests at the property. I feel its very important that you share your plans up front and much sooner rather than hide plans that breech regulations leading to fines and last minute upsets /surprises. So far as the hot tub- you have to turn the switch on that heats the (email hidden)me with freezer, turn the switch to on and no issues.Lastly , a 3 bedroom home for 8 in a residential area should not be assumed is fine to hold an event in without any inquiry. Some homes don't have insurance for large groups and this puts your guests at risk so its not a good idea to conceal plans until the last minute.

Response from Rachel:

I am happy you found the house as described. I am not sure what you are referring to about my unresponsiveness. It's important for guests to send messages on the airbnb message thread and i sent you multiple messages in response to your queries. The hot tub did not work because you broke the panel. It has been 2 weeks and you have not yet paid for the extra accommodation you rented. Your family rented the main house with 3 bedrooms.When you decide to rent the studio as well , it naturally means incurring the cost of that.I hope you will pay soon.
