Hi Marianne- We left the towels in one spot on the bed, put all dishes in the sink, and left the place in the condition we found it. I dropped some allergy medicine on the floor, but I did not feel comfortable crawling around the cave to gather it. In general, I don't think your photos and description were representative of the place, and we were eager to leave quickly- I didn't sleep for two nights we were there. If you had wanted us to do laundry or clean the whole place ourselves (which defeats the purpose of a cleaning fee?) you should have told us when we arrived. We have never been expected to do laundry on towels or wash a few dishes for a 2 day stay.
