I started renting out a whole house rental this year in rural Somerset, UK.
It is a separate building within my property, and it has it’s own private garden, which is currently occupied by a pair of small statues that face each other across the patio.
I’ve had them for years: 2 mishievous gargoyle-type creatures: mr happy - who just sits there enjoying the garden with an innocently blissful “alls-right-with-the-world” expression
on his face; and mr grumpy - who looks like he’s constantly watching his companion with an “its-alright-for-you-you-got-the-sunniest-corner-i-always-get-a-raw-deal-life-is-so-unfair” expression (lets just say that i acquired them at different times because they reminded me of someone!)
During the summer, i noticed after one booking,that mr grumpy’s face had been turned towards the wall -which made me laugh, but after my latest booking, poor mr happy got turned around this time -so maybe it’s time to find them a new home in my garden, and find something less controversial to replace them.
It reminds me of the first time i booked a holiday cottage for a weekend, many years ago - it was a very nice, but tiny, new house near Dartmoor - except that it was full of an alarming number of plastic flower decorations (of the unpleasant, unconvincing, cheap and dusty sort) - which i had an aversion to - so much that every time i found some, i moved them to the understairs cupboard; but they were everywhere - before leaving we took a photo of the cupboard full of them. I still wonder what that owner thought, and whether they took the hint!
Is there anything in your listing that caused your guests to subtly (or not so subtly!) express their dislike ?
