Response from the owner Thank you for your valuable feedback. Since your stay we have now upgraded the two Apartments, and you can no longer hear noises from the Kitchen, and the Musseanda Patio is no longer used for staff to pass through as we have now made a new gate in the last section. As you mentioned the dogs disturbing you, we discovered if we put our dogs in our kennel at night, the neighbours dogs keep quite! Easy solution! and as you said for the second night it worked! There are 3 overhead lights and 2 bedside lights in the Musseanda Studio so I am surprised you mention 'low' lighting, if you had told us we could have shown you where the switches are or even given you another lamp, we do do everything in our power to please our Guests, but they do have to tell us!! The same goes for Breakfast, if there is something you do not like, please tell us so we will not give it to you! There are virtually no ornaments in the Musseanda Apartment so your comment surprised me! and there is Air conditioning, but as mentioned in our Blurb, it is at extra cost. Most Guests do not require it as our Apartments are very cool and a stand up or wall fan works very efficiently! But the AC units are there if guests require AC and are prepared to pay the extra cost. The 'maintenance fee' is only $50US and covers cleaning before you arrive, and any repairs or replacement of broken crockery or glasses after you leave, this is instead of charging a damages fee. The choice to tour the garden is yours, most of our Guests love to learn about the tropical Flowers, Herbs and Fruit Trees that we grow organically all year round, but if you are not interested, no problem! We offer it at the beginning of your stay so you can stretch your legs after the long international flights from US, Canada and Europe. As we are a 'Green - ENvironmentally Friendly Destination, most of our Guests love nature and our gardens and delight in learning about the tropical flowers, herbs and fruits, and enjoy watching parrots, hummingbirds, and our wild monkeys run through the gardens, but any Guest can refuse the tour - it is your choice! I'm glad you appreciated our low prices, and good value, compared to Hotels, which we are not! I do believe toilets break down in Hotels as well!! I'm also glad you valued our trusted, reasonable and reliable taxi driver who works with us year round.
