    Ahem. Boys?

    <-------------- The topic is over there.

    :wink:

    Great question, we've never actually stayed in a villa so it's interesting to hear the responses!

    there is always cleaning fluids left, we always replace what we use if anything runs out.

    one IMPORTANT thing to do upon arrival is have a good look around the villato see if there is any damage. check all crockery/cutlery is there. so you dont get billed for anything that wasnt done by you

    We strip the beds at the end of the stay and put them where the instructions say to leave them. I'll clean up messes I've made but I don't scrub the floors.

    We were asked to strip the beds, gather the towels together and put one load one. We washed up the dishes, wiped around the kitchen and swept the floor in the main living area/kitchen. We didn't do floors or hoovering because 1, we weren't asked to. 2, the villa owners pay a cleaning firm to come in after us and 3, I'm on flipping holiday!!!

    It was obviously all ok because we had our deposit back within the week and the villa owners thanked us for taking good care.

    I think we just mopped the floors and swept up, put the bedding where they asked and left the garbage out on the specific day

    Hi, I have stayed in a villa twice the first one we had maid service the second we didnt bother paying for it, just did it ourselves. As regard the bed linen just put one load in the washer and left the rest for the cleaner. Since you are out most of the time the villa doesnt get that untidy, but it is nice to have your own pool and some quite time .
