Thanks for the great review! Really glad you guys had a good time.
As to the hot tub, it's in the early planning stages and not too far off!
Oh, as to the neighborhood, everyone has their unique impressions but I've been strolling around this neighborhood regularly by myself at all hours of the day over the last year, and I haven't had a single issue, nor have my guests. It all depends on what your point of reference is, but I just wanted to share my experience.
My brother and I made a huge error in staying at this house. Host Mary has sadly constructed an elaborate series of fabrications here that reflect someone who was clearly offended by our requests of her to meet minimal cleanliness standards. The place was exceptionally dirty. We were the second guests she had hosted at her home and there weren't any reviews left for her. Meanwhile, as you will notice here, all my reviews as host and guest have been stellar.
The specific things she cites here regarding damage have never conveyed to us. She barely communicated with us at all, certainly nothing regarding placement of sheets. Nothing was broken save the numerous things already broken when we got there. She has quite honestly made them up to deflect the justifiable criticism we had of her. Sadly, we made every effort to settle the issues we had with the house, but she had no interest in empathy or rational discourse.
I have been in touch with airbnb and I imagine she will not be a part of the airbnb community for long.
