Thank you for your feedback and review. I found some of the elements you mentioned a complete surprise considering all the reverential bowing to me during your sojourn in my home. I realize we all are doing the best we can, however, perhaps, in the future, you can be more upfront and honest to your host, instead of feigning satisfaction, and by the way, this is far more respectful and compassionate way of being than bowing to someone. I think that you have to become more realistic about what you are getting into before you commit or book a reservation. I think some of your above complaints were a bit unreasonable and high maintenance ( as you said it yoursel considering the price you were paying. I am very clear in what I offer: this place as it advertised is Bohemian Chic Retreat with warm bed in a shared space, a charming home filled with paintings and culture, as well as Full Complimentary English Breakfast, ALL for just $39.00 a night, that’s great value! And rightly so, because of the nature of my home and the fact that it is a shared space it is ideal for who is very busy out and about, site seeing and or getting things done. It is ideal for the business person relocating to Los Angeles or global traveler on a budget that doesn’t demand perfection or has such exacting standards and also understands how to give people their space and privacy. In addition I also enjoy guests who not only follow house rules like you yourself did, but in addition are mature, self-aware and has excellent communication skills and makes an effort look to work for the mutual harmony and happiness of all parties. Also, because this is a shared space, guests should understand the importance of giving their hosts their space and privacy, but most importantly, communicating in a productive, compassionate way about any of their expectations which can only contribute to the overall happiness of everyone. With regards to any bugs, it has nothing to with cleanliness. It is a given that most apartments in California, especially Los Angeles, upon occasion certain little animals like spiders come up from the drain pipes and an occasional fruit fly. I know that people from more cold climates like yourself are not used to bugs, but it is a common problem and most Californians just learn to live with it.
Honestly, you weren't receptive and positive about receiving my services and what I have to offer. You didn’t take me up on my Complimentary breakfast because of your dietary preference of eating 8 eggs for breakfast, perhaps, in the future, let people shine, and also you can be more open to the positive things in a situation and be a bit more flexible and this way you’ll enjoy life to the fullest and have no regrets! I wish you all the best in your future endeavors teaching English in Japan and your journey in life!
