We were sorry about your bad experience, which was beyond our control as the cleaner had been booked. I wish to clarify that the windows are aluminium, not to everyone's taste but not at all drafty. The house, though last renovated in the 1980s was repainted throughout and decorated with modern furnishings. It is standard not to set a fire in the spring and summer months, although plenty of wood and kindling was provided outside the back door. The trash had not been taken out when we arrived, so we are concerned that you may have gone to the wrong house.
