Feel free to munch and snack on what is in the house. Just please clean up after yourself. There is only departure cleaning services. Bathroom cleaned up after use. Take dirty sheets and blankets off and put in designated area when they need cleaning and upon departure. If you are running the air conditioners do not leave the windows open.
