Nicely written, if a bit wordy. Your description of the bathroom is pretty well buried in the text. It may or may not be why you aren’t getting booked. It’s not about “all Airbnb folks require bathrooms” – that’s just plain silly!. The wording does bother me a bit:
“A short walk (of less than one minute) across the lawn brings you to the brand-new bathroom in the house, which is yours to use 24/7. (we might use it from time to time as well, but we also have a second bathroom). The bathroom is in the walkout basement of the house, and has a large tiled shower with sliding glass door, toilet, and large sink. Access to the bathroom in the house is 24/7 using a keycode on the walk-out basement door.”
First, understand that when I’m not at my partner’s house with the listing, I live aboard a sailboat at a marina, where bathroom/shower access is 150 yards from my boat, by keycode. So I am fully aware of the issue of separated bathrooms. But most folks aren’t accustomed to this…
“A short walk…” Why even describe this, except to brag on “your brand-new bathroom”?
“yours to use 24/7” And you mention 24/7 twice in the description.
Dang I hope the bathroom is 24/7 – especially when I’ve got Montezuma’s Revenge at 3 AM!!!
“(we might use it…)” Then it’s not mine 24/7 like you said twice? I have to wait until you’re done? Is this a shared bath or not? Make up your mind!
“Access… is 24/7 using a keycode…” Dang this Montezuma’s Revenge! What the heck is that keycode!!!" Code locking access to the bathroom!? As an Airbnb guest I’m not happy with that. Put the lock INSIDE the house so guests can’t access the rest of your home. But I sure don’t want to have to try and remember some bloody keycode at 3 AM when I gotta go!!
I don’t understand why you need all this verbiage about the bathroom, in the first place…
The inside doesn’t look “cold” to me, but it does look “sterile”. I stayed in yurts in Mongolia a few years back, and the interior walls are covered with colorful rugs, hangings, etc. Yours is only set up for summer – there’s no interior wall. I also agree with the others about your photos not being all they could be. It looks a bit too much like “camping” an not enough like “glamping”.
