Thank you for the overall positive comments. This is Jamie, and Julian hosts on my behalf.
As the "owner" of this Listing, I did not know that there was a 3 lb chihuahua (the only dog) upstairs until this review. I am sorry it disturbed you. We have spoken to its owner and asked her to be more considerate.
I have also asked Julian to confirm with his guests that the TV is at a comfortable volume.
You have written since your review, that you would stay with us again. This is good news!
I could not be more pleased with Julian as a host! Julian just loves hosting you all! Because it is an apartment, some noise or other issues might be reasonable to expect. We hope the nightly rate offsets any small issues. If not, you can stay in my home in the Vallejo hills which is not an apartment. But it is priced to reflect that as well.
Thank you Julie. We try very hard to make every aspect of our guest's stay as pleasant as possible. We focus on that over which we have control, and offer high comfort at a low price point compared to all other venues in Vallejo. We can't control the owner's timing for updating. We can control cleanliness, decor, and other aspects of coziness and comfort. And we are always open to suggestions!
Thank you for the overall positive review, Jeannie. I must say that this is the first time anyone has ever mentioned a problem with noise from my neighbors in the building, and I make a point of asking guests about such things; on the other hand, they usually work graveyard & are not normally at home nights, which has mostly lent itself to a quiet environment. My apologies.
There really is little that I can say under the circumstances; I have never felt "unsafe" in this neighborhood - I would hardly live here if that were true, and certainly wouldn't be offering accommodations to strangers to subject them to an unsafe environment. I would obviously like to hope that this was an unfortunate and isolated incident. And I certainly enjoyed Michael's visit otherwise, and would be more than happy to host him again in the unlikely situation that he would want to return.
