I'm surprised about the complains posted by Fionnuala about her stay.
We did not know about the works in the stairs of our building. As soon as she told me I apologized, and got informations with my sister, who lives opposite door, if the noise and discomfort were unacceptable ... She told me that, apart from two days of work on our floor with disturbing noise only during the day - which had already passed when Fionnuala warned me - the situation was quite "normal" as the workers had moved to other floors. I'm sorry that her stay coincided with the works, but unfortunately these things can happen .
The other "problems" encountered by Fionnuala, that she never mentioned to me during her long stay, do not actually exist. A little more of communication would have surely solved any of them.
- I warned Fionnuala before she entered the house that there was a problem with the internet and that there would be a few days of discomfort, and she told me there won't be a problem. I told her in any case, that ,if she needed it , she would have been able to connect to the wireless network of my sister asking her the password.
- There is no leaking pipe in the bathroom: it may happen sometimes that the flush remains blocked after use, so a bit of water may drip .. it's a problem that can happen with the Geberit wall system. Probably our guest is not familiar with this: you have simply to press again and the noise disappears.
- The air conditioning is working perfectly in the rooms and there are instructions on how to turn it on in the apartment. Fionnuala never informed me about that
- From the first moment I informed that the house has several personal items , because is a home that we love and which, albeit living abroad , we continue to occupy as soon as we can.
