Response from Mark:

This review is not completely accurate: we replaced the TV in 36 hours but the tenant was unable to accept delivery of the TV for several days due to her work schedule. True, there is old water damage on the ceiling from before we replaced the roof -- but the roof is now brand new. The entire house is old ... that is the charm of it. And so those expecting ultra-modern construction will be disappointed. But a professional maid service cleans the house after every single tenant. The antique Japanese bath tub certainly shows its age ... but is also certainly perfectly clean and sanitized in between guests. This guest tried to "clean" the signs of an old tub, and of course, even after her repeated 'cleaning' those age signs remained (thus confirming the tub is actually cleaned ... it's just not perfectly shaded and shiny. The range top stove works perfectly fine, as does the toaster oven and microwave ... however we are replacing the insulation on the center part of the oven and so we don't recommend any serious baking projects. The patio furniture is outdoor furniture ... again, showing signs of age, but it is bleach water cleaned every month and absolutely free of mildew. We've had dozens of guests with no complaints -- the place is an old country home, meant for those who enjoy rustic living with all the comforts (while living in the middle of secluded woods). But if you want shiny new modern construction, take a hotel in town! I'm happy to post more photos and send others to illustrate. I have intense allergies and so, with my HEPA filter and constant professional cleaning, there is no musty smell. Happy to answer any questions ... our guests have enjoyed staying and they return often. Thanks!
