Ok, I am going to try not to sound too defensive here. Yes, the cottage is small which you can clearly see from our photos. That is why it is presented as a "cottage" and not a "house". It is a cute, small cottage and "perfect for a family of four" as the renters who came in after you said in their review. Most "cottages" in Wellfleet don't have multiple spaces to congregate...ours has a living area which flows into the kitchen space which makes up the main room. There's a cathedral ceiling which makes it feel open and there are 3 windows and a front and back door to let a lot of natural light in. There is also nice outdoor deck and we have hosted friends and family here comfortably for many fun dinners over the years. If you want more space to be alone and have more privacy, I would recommend looking at a "house" with more rooms, not a cottage.
It is not surrounded by close neighbors, especially compared to most cottages in Wellfleet. It's set back from the road and it's quite private...for example, the view from 2 of the bedrooms and the deck is of a grassy hill and trees. I will be posting some more pictures to show this. In terms of our neighbors, the 2 cottages that are closest to us are not rented out and the people who own them are extremely quiet and nice neighbors. I have never been disturbed by any activity in this neighborhood.
As for being cold (very unusual for July), the cottage is heated and you could have easily turned on the heat. There is baseboard heating in every bedroom and the thermostat is very visible on the wall next to the flat screen TV.
As for the bathroom, I will admit that there appears to be discoloration on parts of the caulk in the indoor shower and we are replacing it this week so it will no longer be an issue. If you felt that the bathroom was filthy, you should have informed me and I would have sent my cleaner in and as for the caulk, I could have sent our caretaker in to replace it right away. The bathroom is not filthy or moldy, I am here now, there is absolutely not "filth and mold everywhere". My cleaning service said that it was filthy when you left...with 4 adults sharing one bathroom, you need to maintain the cleanliness because unlike a hotel, a maid doesn't come in every day to clean it for you. I will be posting pictures of every part of the bathroom to show this. Also, we have a nice outdoor shower for our renters' enjoyment.
I have to end by saying that our cottage is tidy, well maintained, quiet and reasonably priced for all it's amenities. Recently, we have invested in a new granite counter top, washer-dryer, flat-screen TV, cable/wireless, tasteful decor, a privet hedge and new flattop stove/oven unit. We have multiple repeat renters who love staying here with their family to be together and create lasting memories.
