I personally enjoyed my stay. This is a great place if you are sociable because these are friendly people who enjoy the company of others. In the post they state they have dogs, which they do, and these dogs are very people friendly (ironically like their owners). Not a good place to stay if you do not like dogs. Great place to stay if your new in town and looking for a welcoming environment.
Nice Pool, however the house was always very hot. The dogs were a hassle, the room I stayed in had dog hair everywhere on my bed. Had to open window to get cool breeze but there was no screen so bugs came in. As far as informing the host, it's not my place to tell them how to run a room. Nice people.
