We're sorry to see your stay at our house had a bitter-sweet taste Steve. You're right though, looking after the dogs takes some time but, as mentioned in the ad, that's why the full house with yard, pool and gym was for rent at only $60.00 a night! :) I presume you didn't suffer from the heat since the night temperature was around 17 degrees when you were here but yes, summer months in Thailand are hot. Note however that the two rooms we rent don't get direct sun during the day. We never personally slept in those rooms and we were considering installing air conditioning but so far, nobody even complained about the heat so maybe the fan is good enough! Cheers!
