Response from Ava & Brett:

Aloha Hillary and Saul,

Let us first say this: Airbnb in general, and shared space in particular works because both hosts and guests are considerate, respectful, friendly, and polite. We did notice that you and Saul had a hard time with some of these on your first day here. Even so, it was surprising to us to get such a poor review from you since you thanked us profusely and even hugged us before you left.

We do have rules, these are clearly posted on our airbnb page under ‘house rules’. We wish you would have reviewed them before requesting to stay with us. One of our ‘rules’, which is really just courtesy, is to have quiet time between 10p-8a. We often have guests up really late, or getting up really early, but they are considerate and quiet, so there is never any problem. Please see the review from Greg below as an example of how this works.

Your first morning here you got up at 4:45 am, which is when you started SLAMMING doors. You did this SEVEN times between 4:45 and 5:45. At this point, we should tell our readers that our doors are not normal doors. Most doors inside houses are hollow on the inside to make them lighter, our doors are solid wood which is quite heavy and EXTREMELY loud if slammed. We were startled wide awake with the first slam. After about the 3rd we started wondering if you were having a fight. After 6 slams Brett decided to get up and get dressed to see what was going on. We have NEVER had anyone repeatedly slam doors here in over 2 years of hosting guests, so we were quite confused. So, Brett says: ”Good morning, Saul, could I ask you a favor, could you please try to close the doors gently?" This is the courteous, respectful way a host asks a guest to do something that will promote the peace and harmony of the house. Strangely and confusingly, Saul's reply was odd even defensive, no apologies like are normal and expected in such a situation...I quote: "Oh, we are just getting used to them.” Then he turned, and walked into the bathroom and slammed the door AGAIN. Very strange.

I, Ava, spent a very tired day wondering what all the door slamming was about, and worried that the next morning you might still be “getting used to the doors”, so that evening I politely asked you that if you are up before 8 am to please close the doors softly. My request was met by blank stares from both of you and awkward silence. So, I changed the subject and asked about your day. It was very strange that you never did apologize, but everyone has their idiosyncrasies, so we just let it go. We thought the rest of your stay was quite pleasant and there was no more door slamming.

We have no idea why you were offended that Brett showed you the hose to wash the sand off your feet, we have shown this to all our guests during orientation for over 2 years. Washing sand off before you come in the house is also listed very clearly under ‘house rules’. He may have told you that sometimes the sand sticks in the hollows above your heels, which again, was us just trying to be courteous.

We hope that future potential guests will read the ‘house rules’ so that if they feel there are too many rules they can stay elsewhere where they might be more comfortable. We love to host kind, considerate people from around the world and will continue to do so with *ALOHA* :)
