Thank you for your private and public reviews. We very much appreciate feedback, and are glad to have your comments about extra towels, etc. We tried installing a set of vertical blinds for the slider, but the door frame prevented it working properly, so we abandoned the idea. As for the Landmark restaurant across the street, I think it's only on Friday nights when they have live (loud) music that things get unpleasantly noisy. My apologies for the lack of a mute button ... I am in contact with the man who organizes the music events there, and have asked if the volume couldn't be dialed back for the comfort of restaurant patrons as well as for residents in the general area. My only regret is that I didn't get to meet you while you were here. We hope you're able to come back another time.
