Firstly, thank you for taking the time to review the property and your stay. Naturally I am disappointed whenever I hear feedback that is less than positive. Wherever there are valid issues, I will of course address them.
I will address some of the points that you made directly as I think its important that future reviewers have accurate information on which to base their decisions.
The house is located in The Liberties, which is one of the oldest and closest neighbourhoods in Dublin to the city center. For the previous 82 guests who rated the location at 4.5 stars, many indicated that they found the area interesting and vibrant and a real indication of a community at the heart of Dublin.
According to (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps, the house is actual 0.75 miles from Temple Bar, not the one and half miles that you have indicated. The house has a 4.5 star location.
With regards to the cleaning fee and the cleanliness, naturally, I am disappointed and will of course mention this to the housekeeper. I know she will be disappointed with your feedback as she has had 4.5 stars out of five on average for all of her previous cleans which means she has a high number of 5 stars. We will check this out.
Specifically with regards to the cost of the cleaning the fee includes, the cleaning of the actual house, the removal and cleaning of four sets of bed linen (two double duvets, two single duvets, four flat sheets, 16 pillow cases, six sets of towels (12), bath mats, kitchen towels and the removal and payment for the disposal of all your rubbish (Dublin council charge for each bag). So its easy to see where the cost of 70 euros per clean actually goes.
I think its fair to say that you made some assumptions with regards to parking. Nowhere in my listing do I indicate that there is parking nor that there is free on street parking. In the event that parking was important to you then I would have been happy to address this with you and to provide all relevant information on the meter charges, locations of covered parking before you made the booking. Instead, this subject was only raised by yourself two days before arrival.
I trust that I have covered the points that you have raised.
