Hi Phyllis. Being sad (and a bit irritated ) you left marked down stars that I don't see as fair, at all. You see, everything you mentioned...accuracy, location, value are SPECIFICALLY ADDRESSED in the listing. Did you bother to read it?
~ACCURACY: Why weren't you aware of "renting a bedroom" is startling. It is CLEARLY stated, "offered is our Hummingbird Room..." As w/ALL our "Peeps," there is free reign of common areas and property. Why you marked us down for this is remarkably unfair given you should have understood this before booking with us.
~LOCATION: Marked us down on this while it is CLEARLY stated our property is 19 miles from the South Rim entrance gates. We ARE the CLOSEST B&B to the Grand Canyon! If you wanted to be closer you should have booked a room in Tusayan or The Park. Again, not fair.
~VALUE: We are in~line, if not less than, the vast majority of lodging in or near GCNP. We offer quiet surroundings, open space to nature and sky and make shared space comfortable enough where all can feel at~home (put your fee~up and not worry about breaking anything, for starts). In addition, we are GC locals. Steve, a former helicopter tour pilot at The Canyon and I'm an Arizona native w/extensive background of this part of northern AZ. Together, we know the in $ outs of all things South Rim and share our knowledge freely so you can make the most of your stay. Our inside knowledge of the area is BETTER than any Concierge can give you at any of the lodging up there! (Besides, we're not trying to sell you something.)
All in all, people who choose to stay w/us are looking for more than your standard double~double. We are delighted to be able to provide such a space.
It would be lovely if, in further stars/reviews, to weigh alternative options and read each Airbnb Host's offering BEFORE booking so you will be more aware of what you'll receive.
I will say it was our PLEASURE to host your Grand Canyon adventure. We enjoyed having you stay w/us! And I'm heartened you appreciated our Picnics. I only wish you would've mentioned the situation was not what was expected (would like to know exactly what you were expecting). Who knows, perhaps we could have ducked~out a day or two and leave you two on your own? (We oft wonder if that would be appropriate.) We're flexible this way. : )
You Two Take Care with Yourselves!
