Response from Chris:

Aloha Cloudine. Your review is quite unfortunate and very inconsistent with that of every other guest.

We provide all the essentials you need, including towels, hand towels, beach towels, toilet paper (multiple rolls) and we replenish upon request - if you were unable to find it you simply needed to ask. The "plank" you have described is a bamboo privacy screen which has never fallen or been dislodged ever in the three plus years Meru has been on Airbnb.

You contacted me once on the night of your arrival asking about the privacy for the four narrow corner windows the only ones in the Hale that do not have privacy glass AND shades. You never communicated any other concern ( in fact you replied and I quote “cool, thanks” and only informed me via Airbnb direct message after the fact and after posting your review. You gave me no opportunity to address any concern you had what so ever. Nor do you mention my apology for the screen falling or your reply and again I quote “it's ok. we didn't move it until we needed to replace it after it fell. we r fine, I'm sure it was an accident. I would have told you sooner but we had or own stuff going on and it wasn't a top priority. Thanks”

The Hale is fully photographed and is EXACTLY as depicted in the photographs. The only things that are new are the awning windows which have been replaced with privacy glass jalousies. The bed is a spring less, organic, bamboo mattress on a bamboo frame. As you can see from the reviews it is one of the most well reviewed features along with the privacy, quiet, and tree top setting. As to your request to leave your bags I responded directly via Airbnb messaging the NIGHT BEFORE your departure and could not accommodate your request only because we had another guest arriving the same day. Cleary you had many uncommunicated expectations and clearly you chose to not relay any concerns to me directly which is unfortunate as is the review you have left which is inconsistent with your communications to me. Including your comment that what you loved is “The place is gorgeous”

Blessings on your marriage and good luck in all your future endeavors.
