Thanks for your feedback. It was disappointing to learn our home didn't meet your expectations.
I'm more than happy to revisit our description - over the past three years of making the suite available, we have never had such feedback.
To clarify - The home is described as a home with a shared space where we live; the front balcony is exclusively used by guests and our adjoining balcony space, as per our photo, is never shared by us while guests are present, ( and wasn't during your stay).
You are correct in stating the toilet is seperate from the bedroom suite, a design most people advise they really value. The hallway has a light switch, which is available for all guests to use at any time, and has previously been used by guests without any issues. I believe you were advised of the location of the switch; in a usual position next to a door.
There is an internal fire as well as an external fire pit which we prepared for you- you were welcome to use both as previous guests have done. Communicating this with us enables this to occur, a practice of other guests.
A lock on the door has never been previously requested or deemed necessary - however, thanks for sharing this concern with us. We will consider the best way to address this without concerning parents of their children accidentally locking themselves in. ( a consideration of ours)
