Hi! Yes, we are back.
Sorry about the cleaning. We thought that we did a good job cleaning. We did not use the coffee machine at all, and so we're not sure how that got dirty (past guests maybe?). Also, we read the instructions to mean that we should place all the linens in one place - we did that with the sheets, and did not think that we needed to do that with the duvet cover. Perhaps you can clarify for future (American) guests. Were we supposed to do anything else with the linens?
We should have vacuumed the place.
In any event, we're happy to spend through either gmail or paypal the cleaning fee if you want. Please let us know.
