Thank you for staying with us, Brittany. We love hosting people and are always happy to accommodate all special requests, like your request to check in 3 hrs earlier or use the pool alone..., no problem. Sorry about the AC issue, we explained that and will do a better job explaining in the property description so others will not be disappointed. Not something we can change easily, that's how we inherited the house. If you told us 75 was too high, we would have adjusted that lower. Previous guests before you asked us to turn it off completely because they were too cold :) Everyone has their own tolerance for heat and we just need to talk. About the cleanliness... we thoroughly clean the place after each guest, all corners, under beds, etc. The house is not new and we live in the woods..., some of the fixtures have a used look and we are working on replacing things one at a time... Spiders make their way in on a daily basis... Our next improvement project is the front access path, so guests don't need to walk in the grass - however, there is a stepping stone path right now, you did not have to walk in muddy grass. All in all, i think this being your first Airbnb experience probably had a lot to do with the level of your expectation about living in someone's home. Yes, you will sometimes hear us next door, we are very respectful of our guests but we will carry on our lives next door.... Wish you used the pool and the yard more, I think your son would have loved that. Good luck on your next travels!
