I was disappointed to see that we had upset the hosts here. As our previous review from NY shows we are tidy people who leave property in good cleanliness. On this occasion there perhaps was a misunderstanding about the level of tidiness expected. However, no expectations were ever shared by the hosts. That said, I fail to see how the state we left it in was as messy as they describe.
Anyway, future hosts can be rest assured I'll make a point of clarifying expectations when it comes to cleaning, and ensuring they are fulfilled.
