Thanks Phil for the compliments, and glad you enjoyed your stay.
Re the extra cleaning fee: As mentioned in the details of my listing it does state that long term rentals may have additional cleaning needed due to the extended time guests are in there and there not being a professional cleaner in there during that long stay. You did receive the 1 year lease long-term discount $55/CN night and at this yearly rate, the condo is not normally fully kited out, and does not come with food supplies cleaned linens etc. It is a basic rental, but you did receive all of these perks anyhow. However, I do know there was indeed coffee, tea, sugar, oil, S&P, a full spice rack, flour, other condiments etc as my cleaner takes photos of each cabinet before/after each check/in/out and even though this is not a requirement, I do like to provide these things for my guests even the long term ones, as I want them to feel at home :)
I only charged $25 for the additional hour my cleaner needed to clean: the stove top tins & oven had splattered/hardened food, she also had to make sure all the linens were re-washed, bleached and laundered to return them to white, and obviously for health & safety purposes, that was a the extra charge for what I thought was a very good offer for the condo that normally rents for $99/night. There was also a sofa pillow sham that the zipper was broken, and did not charge for.
Sorry you felt that way, you were the first long-term guests to receive such a large discount and there was not much profit in it and my cleaner did indeed need that extra time to bring the condo back to the high level of cleanliness that it was when you checked in, guests/tenants do not clean to the level of a professional cleaner. It will always will be spotless for my guests, this is paramount for me and I stand by that, and as you can read the reviews that it is always gleaming and guests have always enjoyed their stay, and yes the condo faces north but you were there during short winter days, summer comes and its much brighter, not to mention it's cozy inside, and it faces the green park & fabulous city skyline. Wishing you all the best.
