All I can say is: "WOW!"
"Immaculate" does not even begin to cover it. Every time that I rent out my apartment, there is of course the hope that guests will be respectful enough to leave it in as clean a condition as when they arrived. However, it is almost unthinkable that a guest would leave the apartment (which means so much to me) in even BETTER condition than before, leaving their positive mark.
Stephanie and her mother are the exceptions. I arrived back at my apartment early to "turn over" before the next guest arrived. I did not even need to. The towels and sheets were not only replaced, but the used ones washed and those also replaced. Extra paper towels and laundry detergent awaited me and the next guests who arrive, along with a truly heartfelt note and some Rodan + Fields samples. Not to mention, every surface was as clean as it was when I left.
I love and appreciate everyone whom I host, but even though I did not meet Stephanie and her mother, I feel a connection. If you get the chance to host them, DO IT. You will not regret it.
Stephanie, you and your mother are welcome here anytime. Please let me know if you would ever like to return to Charleston. In the meantime, good luck with Rodan + Fields. I know from experience that they are an amazing company.
