I am very sorry that you had a different experience than what you expected. The listing description does say that this is the downstairs unit of a single home. To be clear for my future guests, this is a completely separate space from the upstairs. The space--including the downstairs balcony, sauna, hot tub--is used exclusively by the guests. Also the space is completely locked and separated from the upstairs. There is an extra thick sound curtain at the bottom of the stairs to mute the noise but because this is a single home there is some noise transfer. Although guests have their privacy, most guests do enjoy our interactions coming and going.... especially learning about my favorite local hot spots (beaches, restaurants, etc).
