Hi Lindsay - we enjoyed staying in the flat too. However, I'm surprised to read that you weren't happy with how we left the apartment. First of all, we paid a cleaning fee as part of our accommodation cost and as such, expected that things such as 'taking out the garbage' were included in that fee.
We did strip all the beds, put the towels into the laundry, left all garbage in the garbage cans, dishwasher was full of clean dishes. I did apologize for leaving a couple of dishes in the sink. I would have hoped you would've been understanding of this, as we left at 5am (1am our time) to catch a flight and just weren't able to get to washing these couple of things.
If you expect more cleaning from guests (versus leaving a place that's been tidied), then I would suggest lowering your cleaning fee.
I'm not pleased to have this inaccurate review on my profile. You'll notice that none of our many other reviews look this way - I do feel that we did tidy up behind ourselves, but again, given the $75 cleaning fee, it wasn't up to us to do a detailed clean.
