We sincerely apologize for not realizing we were supposed to do all that clean up. We did read the whole manual (to my knowledge) and we didn't see anything about doing laundry and dishes. We did actually vacuum the livingroom rug as it was dirty when we got there but we just figured the housekeeper didn't get to it. We thought we were doing more than we were expected to by loading the dishwasher even so I am very sorry to the next guests who arrived to unmade beds and dirty dishes, we had no idea about these requests. The house rules binder was pretty unorganized so yes an email reminder covering these things would have been welcomed. As I mentioned I couldn't even find in the binder where to bring the trash to and we ended up just putting it a trash can on the side of the road that we came upon eventually. These things also would have been nice to know prior to renting so we could have been more prepared and taken them into consideration. We would have never purposely ignored instructions had we known and we apologize to the guest who arrived after us.
