Heather and friends:
First, let me say how shocked and surprised I was to see such a disparaging review! There is no one sorrier than I that you and your group did not find the property to your standards. I certainly apologize for your stay not being all you wanted it to be.
You were very good at communicating before your stay; however, you never communicated anything whatsoever during your stay I would have been more than happy to address every one of your concerned individually in person. I must also report upon close inspection after your visit by a third party - they were unable to verify your claims as to the mold and mildew, insects, and the dishwasher was in perfect working order. I would also add you stand alone in these claims based on all other guests who have stayed – including guest after your stay. As for allergies - We are in the middle of the country at one the highest pollen times of the year which certainly may have had a bearing on allergies that were suffered.
It's most unfortunate that you couldn't mention the special accommodations that were made for your regarding check in date and check out times. It's very discouraging for a host to receive a review such as yours. I take them very seriously and I will address all of your concerns raised on this property, in the meantime, I would hope that in the future when you travel Airbnb you won't discourage and disparage other hosts in the same manner even if you do experience less than perfect conditions.
