I am so pleased that you and the wedding party enjoyed themselves at Shorewood House. It really is a beautiful property. I am sorry that you found the check-out check-list to be onerous, especially after attending a wedding the night before.

"Be wary--take pictures"

The good: I have to say that the house was great. Exactly what we wanted and needed. It was as listed and very far away from other vacationers. All of this was great. The wildlife was amazing. The bat… More

I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed yourself at the house and that it was as advertised. You are correct the bathroom is superb as is the view and the rest of the amenities. Your other comments concern me. I am sorry that you are still feeling upset – so much so that almost a year later, you feel the need to post this review. Memories fade over time, so perhaps these events are less clear for me than they are for you. I do remember that you requested to stay 4 hours beyond the normal check out time. I was able to accommodate this by asking the housekeeper to rearrange her schedule for the day. What happened after that is beyond me. As you know, I was away on vacation during your stay and because of this I was not able to check the house out for myself. I most certainly would have done had I been able. I am sorry that you felt that I did not follow up with you properly. My recollection is that I phoned and spoke to you about the comments of the cleaning staff. Your interpretation that someone is trying to “make an extra buck” is unfortunate. You were not charged any money and the company that you won the trip through insisted on paying the extra fee. I did not ask them. I agree about taking pictures. I wish my cleaners had taken pictures when they arrived as this would have allowed me to make an informed decision about what to do about extra cleaning charges. I have enacted this policy as a direct result of your feedback. Sincerely, Helen
