Cleaning:  If you desire additional cleaning during your stay, or have questions regarding cleaning, contact your agent. Your rental includes a normal cleaning upon departure.  If extra cleaning is required, the cost will be deducted from your security deposit. To ensure that the cleaning costs do not exceed the normal included amount, we ask that you do the following minimal tasks before you depart the property:

  • Tidy up the rooms before you leave.
  • Please strip the beds that you have used.
  • Please do as much laundry as you can before your departure. This will considerably cut down cleaning time.  DO NOT make up the beds; put clean, folded linens on the foot of the bed.
