I am sorry you felt I didn't spend enough time talking with you when you came to retrieve your bags but I was expecting you to buzz my buzzer when you returned and I was expecting the next guest almost immediately. I did become very startled because you entered the apartment while I was cleaning and vacuuming and preparing the room for the next guest who was arriving at that same moment. This is what I had asked of you as when a guest checks out but leaves their bags that I still would like them to buzz rather then just walk in to the apartment as the other guest may have already checked in and this would violate their privacy. I was startled, not impolite and I in know way "freaked out" or "screamed" as I would never treat anyone like that, I was though very startled as I had asked you to please buzz the buzzer before coming up. i try to accommodate late check outs as best I can, but it is very startling to have someone just walk in without notice many hours after check out time. People always tell me a time they want to return, but they never stick to that time usually so I never know. I asked you to please buzz the buzzer before coming up, this is why I was startled and I wasn't electing anyone to just walk in, sorry, but this is why I don't allow guests to leave with access to keys usually AFTER check out time as too many things have gone wrong. Like this. It's very difficult for you as a guest to understand how stressful a let check out can be because I am attempting to receive the next guest on top of the old guests checking out very late, sometimes it just doesn't go as smoothly as we all would like. But, all I asked was that you buzz before entering the building to let me or the next guest know you were coming up. It is only polite to do so after check out time.
Thanks for your review, yes it is very well organized and efficient in it's decor, but my cottage is twice the size if not more than a regular hotel room and much better decorated, cleaner and quieter than most local hotel rooms! It has very high ceilings so I'm not sure why you would ever feel claustrophobic? I'm happy you had a nice bike ride!
Sorry for this cancellation, but I will be renting my entire apartment out for July and August, not just the room. So sorry, but I have given you a month and a half time to seek another. Hope you will find one which I am certain you will and apologies.
