That is why we don't take on more than we can handle. A clean rental makes a happy renter. And repeat business is what we are trying to achieve.

We require a deep cleaning once a year. This is important for the health and comfort of your future guests as well as proper maintenance of your condominium. We will evaluate the individual need of every unit. Whenever possible, the deep clean will replace a departure clean.
