We've been to Gallows a number of times and like it very much. We've always booked an upper unit, both for the better view and for the extra space. With the economy being what it is, we're thinking to book next time in a lower unit since there are just two of us. Don't mind giving up the extra room, do slightly mind not having the higher outlook, but would be fine. Only thing I'm concerned about (in fact the main reason we book upper, even more impt than those other details) is the noise factor. We're noise sensitive, are used to great silence at home, and know we'd be bothered if we could hear neighbors. In upper unit, we've never been aware of folks below or to the side of us (now and then on lanai).
Here's the question for those of you who've stayed in a Gallows lower unit. Is there any awareness at all of people above? Can you hear footsteps and the like? Thanks very much!
