Hi Rod thank you for your message and I'm really glad you enjoyed your stay.
With regard to how your stay could have been better, thank you for this feedback too, which is helpful. In response:
Re the wardrobe in the main bedroom, I'm aware that shoes were left in it as they were in a shoe holder, however, I wasn't aware any clothes were? I will in future clear the shoes out too.
Re the back wardrobe, I will in future remove all clothes - it wasn't certain that you had another guest coming to stay, but fair enough.
Re personal bits and bobs, sorry you felt these detracted from your stay. I do make it clear in the ad that it's my home & not a holiday rental, and many like the homely touches.
Re the fridge, I'm sorry, I wasn't aware that any food was out of date. Many people eat out a lot when they're on holiday and find that 3 clear shelves and the veg box are enough. I will again make clear that there will be 3 shelves and the veg box in the fridge in the description to avoid any disappointment.
Re access, I would never normally ask for access, but 5pm is a late check out. In a 'B&B' or a hotel room, normal check out is 2pm. It's unusual, as in this instance, I was in Totnes and usually if I'm not there, people are free to stay as long as they wish on that day. I will add this to the terms though for total transparency.
Thank you again for your feedback, review and stay!
