Our property managers arrange for a clean before anyone stays there. After that they can arrange for further cleaning if required [at the renters expense], but apart from that you are left alone.

Its quite a few years since I was doing it, but I used to be a rep looking after people staying in villas.
Generally, we would get a full clean done at the end of a stay but interim cleaning was up to the guest at the time. There was always clean bedding in the cupboards so if you wanted to change your linen during your stay you could use the washer and dryer and do this yourself. We did occaisionally go in and do an interim clean for a guest but that would be at extra cost.
I don't know how other villa owners/companies work but this was how we did it.
Hope this helps X

The villa we have booked will have a full clean done before we arrive. We can pay for an interim clean if we want. I figure it's just a case of making beds and slinging stuff in the dishwasher while we're there and on the last day have a run round with the noo-noo and make sure the bathrooms aren't health hazards. :D

The "noo-noo"? :unsure:

Translation, please?

This is one of those times when I'm not sure we're speaking the same language! :lol:

Does everyone strip the beds and put the first lot of laundry on just before they leave the villa on the last day?

We normally suggest that they strip the beds and place the linen and any used towels etc. in the laundry area so that the cleaners can launder the items after our guests have left.

i always put the first load or two on and of course i make sure that the place is quite clean- especially the bathrooms and kitchen, we're not there much anyway so it doesn't get that dirty

Glad to hear that BC.
We`ve been told some real horror stories by our property managers about how some renters trash their villas.
This is one of the reasons why we only allow close friends and family to use ours.
We have spent a lot of cash on the place and it would break my DW`s heart if it was wrecked by any inconsiderate guests.

Hi.. It is asked if guests would consider stripping the beds off and putting a wash on as this can often help the cleaners get the villa ready for next guest that could be due the same day you vacate a bit quicker as i say guests are not obliged to do this.
Our MC will do extra cleans but to be honest this can be a bit costly for guests. We do have all the cleaning stuff in the villa and often if guests use it they will replace what they use for the next guests. It is advised to check the washing powders though in case of sensativity. I think most all guests do run arround and clean up despite the fact the villa will be cleaned when they leave.

That's good then! I wasn't sure if we were supposed to put the machine on but I figured it couldn't hurt to give them a head start. I did the white towels on the morning we left and put all the bedding in laundry baskets next to the machine.
