Our trusted cleaning lady of 10 years comes once per week on Fridays. We prefer to keep her engaged even during our multi-week exchanges, out of respect for her livelihood. If you have a cleaning lady too, we will gladly swap services. Our philosophy is that we do not expect our guests to do extensive cleaning when leaving our home, and we would prefer the same. It should be vacation after all!
