I am sorry to here you had some mixed impressions of your stay here. As I read your comments, they are very general in nature and this is the first time I've gotten feedback such as yours. To clarify, I cleaned the cabin in the same manor that I always do and when I settled you and your son I did say I would be back in a couple of days to check in on re-cycle and garbage. This is my pattern. In terms of welcoming I can say that I always try to be sensitive to the needs and varying characters of each of my guests. Some enjoy more interaction than others. Often people appreciate their privacy. Perhaps I misjudged you as belonging to the later group. I was mindful of your stated reason for coming to Salt Spring. Which was to support your friend with the recent loss of her husband.
All the best to you on future journeys. Gwenyth
Thanks for taking the time to review your recent stay. Just one comment, there is a large vacant cupboard under the counter which is there for storage of guests items. Perhaps you missed this? Often guests find putting their goods on the top bunk just as convenient. All the best to the both of you!
