Seems you completely disagree with every other guest that we have had. Our reviews on Airbnb and (Hidden by Airbnb) are exceptional. Most poeple enjoy sleeping on a 2k dollar mattress with $150 dollar pillows. The wardrobe that has space to hang clothes, and put items in drawers also holds a portable ironing board and iron which was plenty of space for our family of 3 from the Ukraine who stayed for a full month. Had you of read the guest book you would find that the coffee table raises up so that you can eat while watching the waves roll in, but if sitting on the couch is not suitable there is the card table that is cleverly disguised as art work...again, had you of read our guest book you would find that out. The platform bed stores our beach chairs, umbrellas, beach bag, wave boards, and beach toys for our guest who enjoy the beach. I am sorry you found it to elevated. It is surprising that you only found the plastic ware which is actually meant for picnics on the beach since there is a full set of glass plates, bowls, and coffee mugs in the same cabinet. Yes, the kitchen is small but it is still a full kitchen with fridge, stove, oven, microwave, coffee pot and toaster plus fully stocked for cooking. We only keep silicone sponges in our kitchen as this type does not transmit germs...those went missing after your stay, along with 2 gold turtles for the tic tac toe board and a decorative throw pillow that matched the bedding which was the reason for the additional payment request. It 2 years of renting we have never had anything go missing. We hope you at least enjoyed the weather.
