Thank you Sarah for your review and for letting me know about the issues that you had during your stay. I am sorry about some noise from the construction of the house across the water canal but this had totally nothing to do with me as I do not control or know the timing of when somebody in the neighborhood may decide to build. That house is almost finished now. As to the installation of solar panels, I have been waiting for that service for few months and I could not predict that it was going to take place during your two months stay. You were informed about it a day or two in advance, it only took 3 morning hours to accomplish and I presented you with a bottle of wine to say sorry for the disturbance that you forgot to mention. As to the cleaning standards I would imagine it is a common sense to clean dishes and wipe off the kitchen stove after each use. The common areas of the house are shared with occupants of the other room and it was actually him not me who complained about those areas being left dirty for extensive periods of time. I thought that I expressed that to you quite clearly but from your review it looks like it is me coming in all the time and checking on cleanness of the guests. I also offered to supply to you any items that you needed in the house from my own house next door so, if only you mentioned to me oven gloves, baking tray or more towels they could have been rushed to you in an instance rather than you being inconvenienced. I am also unaware of any problems with the internet connection or TV. I do share the same WiFi at my next door house and it works quite well to my understanding. Anyway, thanks again for your stay and comments. Hope the rest of your stay in Australia is a ripper.
