There were no misunderstandings. We asked (twice or thrice) if we can stay until 2pm the day of departure and the permission was given. If Michael insisted we needed to checkout at 11am, we would certainly have done so. We even asked him whether to wash linens and covers (and ended up washing only linens b/c Michael had replacement covers) and - of course - we left the place as clean as it was on our arrival. As for free extra night, I already said that Michael was a very accommodating host and it was very nice of him (though we paid for the whole mont, so an extra day for free didn't seem that much of a stretch) to let us stay a day longer and not ask for any money. Our problem was with the apartment not the host not meeting our expectations. So thanks again Michael for having us and I'm sorry for any miscommunications we might been having.
