I'm happy that Vickie's overall experience was good. If minor dust in the corner of a room is all the criticism there is, I'm happy to take care of it with a quick wipe. As far as the plumbing in the front bedroom goes, a simple tap on the toilet handle will stop the water filling the toilet. That happens sometimes, but considering the drought, I thought that would be something I would be notified of sooner. I'm very aware of the seriousness of the drought, which is why I've also had to stop watering the front lawn. Most of my guests understand that. That is also why it is only possible to shower in the large claw-foot tub. All the issues have been addressed.
About the Airbnb reviews system: The star ratings are an average of the time I've listed with Airbnb, so I have no idea if the star rating is from a stay four years ago, or from yesterday. Airbnb has a policy to not divulge individual star-rating feedback to the owner, which makes responding to any issues virtually impossible and anything but transparent.
