We are so pleased that you and your family enjoyed your week with us. Can’t find the words to thank you for the wonderful description of our residence for future potential guests. As far as the ease of booking goes, we are sorry that it was a lengthy and frustrating process but this is required by our booking partner and of course we have no control over it, but it serves to reassure both host and guest. Regarding the directions to property, we do appreciate your suggestion to add GPS coordinates to guest direction information, which we have updated. And we will find a solution to the doorbell issue. As far as WIFI on the north side of the home, we recently pulled out a second WIFI line which didn’t function very well and we are now looking at using our existing Apple network or adding Satellite internet. Thanks also for pointing out the height of your particular unit, which is noted on the websites but may not always be seen by potential guests. We’ve had some guests find this particularly humorous, especially in the shower! (to which we’ll add additional large towels as you suggested). If this is really a problem, we do offer a second residence with higher ceilings which can be found as well in Fossemanant. Thanks again for helping us improve our guest experience!

We’re looking forward to you visiting again to take wonderful photos for our website!
