Aloha Kana, thank you for your review. We do wake up at 6:30 am on weekdays, to prepare for the school day, this is mentions in the listing info. I sincerely apologize for the noise, I suspect that you heard my husband, Robert's footsteps most of all, he can be somewhat lead footed and I have to remind him from time to time to tread lightly, and I will do so in the future! I wish you would have brought it up to me during your stay and I would have reminded him. The apartment's garden area is also listed as semi-private in the listing, which I think is an accurate description as there is a clear area for guest use, with a semi-private palm tree boundary. Robert did happen to be doing some construction work in the yard during your stay and I apologize if it disturbed you.
