Dean - as I stated in my Review of you as a Guest, you did not take the time to carefully read my Listing for the property. If you had, it would be clear that all of the things that you are complaining about (i.e. lack of bedding, lack of running water inside the Airstream, etc.) are clearly addressed in the Listing. I want my Guests to know exactly what they are getting when they book my property and to this point the vast majority have understood and have thoroughly enjoyed their stay.
The thing that is so frustrating about this experience is that I was on the phone with your wife for a considerable amount of time the day before your stay and I was very clear about what I provide at the property. You wife remarked that "we camp all the time" and that you were looking for a place to read and relax. Based on our conversation I assumed that she/you were clear as to what my property has to offer. Obviously, your expectations as to what you thought you were booking and what my property has to offer somehow became skewed between the time of that conversation and the time you arrived at the property.
I am very clear in my listing that you are renting your own private campground with 23 acres for $40 per night. It is emphasized in the listing that you must enjoy camping, which is what you are doing when you stay at the property. The Airstream is provided as shelter from the elements. Some Guests have chosen to tent camp, others have used the Airstream. The vast majority have been very happy when staying in the Airstream since it provides a comfortable place to sleep out of the elements along with air conditioning, a fridge, fans, lights, lavatory, etc. Prior Guests have also been very appreciative of the fact that I provide a Webber grill, Coleman cookstove & workstation, solar shower + privacy tepee, table, chairs, pots, pans, utensils.
I am also very clear in the Listing that the 12v in the trailer needs repair and that the water pump and 12v interior lights in the trailer did not work. This is why I have priced staying at the property so reasonably.
In terms of making hot water for washing, coffee, etc. that is what the pots and the Coleman camp stove are for and no one else has had difficulty with this. There was plenty of fuel for the stove. The Webber grill is for grilling and not intended for boiling water.
You stay concluded with you calling me at 11:30am the second day of your stay asking me where an additional propane canister was stored. You then informed me that you would be vacating the property early (after preparing lunch on the grill). You and your wife proceeded to leave the Airstream a shambles with the camping equipment scattered throughout the trailer. You also left all 3 of the roof vents open to the elements and did not lock the front door of the trailer.
Sorry that the property/Airstream did not work out for you and that you cut your booking short from 4 nights to 1 night.
I have tried very hard to make certain that all of my Guests are aware of what the property/trailer has to offer and does not offer prior to booking in both my Listing and also in the additional materials that I provide once you have booked ("Tips & Tricks) and up until this point in time each Guest understood this.
I never indicated in either the listing or the additional materials that there was running water in the trailer and in fact I am clear that there is not running water inside the trailer. This was on of the reasons you stated for departing the booking/property early. A closer reading of the materials provided would have cleared up any confusion on this issue.
Your comments about providing storage for Guests to store food, etc. are constructive and this is something that I will look into for next season. Again, you are the first Guest to request storage for food, clothing, etc. so this has not been an issue prior to this point but is something to certainly consider.
The trailer is thoroughly cleaned before each Guest arrives including a wipe down of the sinks, tables, etc. and was done prior to your stay. The only thing that I can think of is that there was a longer period of time between your visit and the prior Guest than is the norm and that the winds kicked up some dust. As I stated to you, the Airstream is nearly 40 years old and is not air tight and given the proximity to the mountain face the winds can be very strong.
I hope that in the future you will carefully read both the Listing for a given property and additional materials that are provided by Hosts so as to avoid any confusion/misunderstanding as to what a property does/does not offer for the price. I want all of my Guests to enjoy their stay at my property in the mountains and to know exactly what they can expect.
So sorry for the delay in thanking you for the positive review - didn't see this was available until I was responding to another review. It was a pleasure to have hosted you at the property Chloe and thanks for your patience working out the kinks prior to your arrival. Glad that you found the surroundings private yet comfortable for a solo traveler. You left the Airstream and the property immaculate. Look forward to to hosting you again soon. Cheers! Andy
