Response from the owner To provide “the rest of the story”,immediately after we read about this problem with the a/c, the on-site manager inspected the premises and found the a/c to be impaired but functioning. We scheduled an urgent repair which has since been performed (fine grains of sand were partially plugging the a/c inlet) and the problem was corrected. We deeply regret that this occurred and also that it was not immediately reported so that urgent corrective action on the a/c could have been taken. (The desired toiletries could also have been delivered from the office right away.) Unfortunately, we cannot anticipate every problem but are committed to correcting any issue of which we are aware as expeditiously as possible, including compensation to our guests for inconvenience when appropriate. (A substantial discount and gift were offered to our guests for any subsequent visit.) In a follow-up email, our guests explained in part that they had a lovely time, and that “we will also let everyone know that if they visit Yosemite they must book your place!”
