The house rules were set up in consideration of other guests who stay in close proximity within the same house. Their purpose is to bring awareness to all guests of the need to respect each other's private space. As hosts, we abide by the rules as well. We are glad they did not hinder your stay in the end and thanks for understanding.
Noted. An additional blanket has been placed in the room. Thank you for the feedback.
To clarify, the last two "hurricanes" ended up not being hurricanes, so utilities were only down for a few hours. In a real hurricane, we would expect to not have utilities for several days at least. The recent windstorm of early January was more severe than the two hurricanes of 2014, causing island wide power/internet outages for one to two days.
