Neil, am really sorry about how you feel about our stay. We certainly did not mean to create that impression. On the communication part about being with the baby it was certainly an oversight. I am sending you the transcripts of the communication I had with other Airbnb hosts for our stay on the same trip (London, Lake District and even in EDI for other properties I looked at before booking yours) and you can see that I was clear that I was traveling with my 20 month old son. It was an oversight with you, definitely not anything to misinform you.
As for the thing that is on the carpet, if you can send me pictures of that, I can take a look at because we dont have anything that we carried that was a glue. So dont know what exactly it is. I do admit that we did not clear out the trash before we left but that was because we couldnt find the location of the trash disposal.
Sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. Let me know how I can help.
Thanks Liz...the memory of your garden and the wild strawberries still is vivid in our mind. We will cherish the time we spent, the restaurant you recommended and the activities you suggested. Wish we had more time in Lake District; well there is the reason for us to come back ;-)
