Thank you Roman for your review. I wish you had reached out to me during your stay regarding some of these cons, as I could have quickly addressed them. I'd like to discuss a few of the issues you brought up.
1) All of our kitchen accessories and cookware were purchased at Target, not at the dollar store. That being said, you are the first one to question the quality of our kitchen items.
2) We do not advertise a dishwasher in our ad. It is addressed in our ad very clearly, in the amenities section what appliances are offered. I am very upfront about what to expect when staying with me.
3) The washer and dryer came with our house. My family and I use them as well to do our laundry. We are able to provide change if you need. We realize this is a hassle so we provide all the necessities such as detergent, softener, and dryer sheets for your convenience. The ad also clearly states that the machines are coin operated.
4) We wash all the bedding between every stay, so we don't use standard linen sheets. I'm not sure what you mean when we don't have pillow covers-- we use two pillow cases per pillow. If it would have made you more comfortable we could have provided linen sheets and extra pillow cases for you if you had asked.
5) Our space is advertised for 7 not 8 guests, as you stated. This is very clearly stated in our description of the space. To prevent wine glasses from being broken, we only provide them upon request. We have found that leaving them out leads to them being broken more often than not. We provide 7 mugs and 7 glasses, any more and we would not have the cabinet space to store them.
6) We chose not to put a table outside because it would be safety hazard. The walkway does not provide enough space for a large table and chairs enough for 4 people. In case of emergency, they would be an obstruction.
7) It is clearly stated in our ad that we live in a family neighborhood. There are children playing outside and families enjoying their time off work. With all due respect, if our neighbors choose to hang dry their laundry it is not in our power to tell them not to do so. In Hawai'i, hanging laundry out to dry is commonplace. Please do not forget that living on an island ecosystem we make an effort to be as environmentally friendly as possible. As such, hanging laundry out to dry saves energy and our planet. As residents of Hawai'i we adopt an attitude of "Malama 'aina" and try our best to care for the land that we live in.
