We understand about the hand rail, it is something that we already have on our list of changes. This will be done as soon as there is a time when we have no guests.
With regard to using the shower, in the eight years that we have been running Sorgente, we have never had this issue, water splashing has never been so bad that it forms puddles or, as it seems in this case, flows out of the bathroom door and into the hallway. Any guests comments about the bathroom have been complimemtary and in fact they like the open stylish design. The floor gets wet yes, under normal use even with very enthusiastic kids the amount it has always stayed inside the bathroom, and dries quickly. The bathroom floor is sealed.
On our description page, second paragraph:
"Note - the bath is high-sided and we do not have a walk-in shower, this should be considered by those who are elderly and/or physically infirm."
The whole house and garden can be seen on Trip Advisor, therefore the suitability of the garden should have been apparent to you. We are limited to the amount of text we can place in our descriptions, therefore we cannot add every detail and every issue that a guest may encounter.
However I shall revisit the text and clarify where I can.
As I said, we have nothing but glowing reviews and comments, only our location is sometimes marked down because we are not on a beach or have spectacular views.
We are honest and do not wish to mislead people. We do our upmost to help guests. Stated in the cottage welcome information:
"contact us or the property manager immediately if anything is not to your liking, missing, not working correctly or for anything else you are not sure of. Please do not wait until the end of your holiday to tell us."
This is because we genuinely want to solve anything AS and WHEN it arises and not have guests put up with something that may not like during their holiday. Telling us after the holiday does not help them.
It is unfortunate that you did not inform us of this issue before or during your stay, we would have been able to help and have prevented all this happening. Drying a wet carpet with a hair drier is not approiate and in fact dangerous. I am truly sorry that lost your deposit but for our future guests we had to replace the burny carpet.
It is unlikely that in the future we shall install a shower curtain or screen, however should you choose to stay again, we would endeavour to provide a solution to cope with the access water on the floor.
As you are now familiar with the property, you know what to expect, although judging from your recent comments you may well have changed your mind about staying in the future. This would be unfortunate, as originally you did say that it was perfect and you all enjoyed it so much and wanted to return.
You are welcome anytime!
