Response from Ja:
Patrick's review is entirely accurate, and appreciated. I do strive to make guests comfortable and provide very clean spaces for their enjoyment. However, to avoid any surprises, I do want people to know that it is a family home and not the kind of vacation rental you might find on (website hidden), or a traditional full service bed and breakfast. With nine guests in Patrick's party, there wasn't a lot of space left in the house to "hide" clutter, so his experience may have been a bit unusual in that regard, but it is true that if someone is looking for empty drawers, closets, and workspaces, a different type of listing might be a better match.
