Cleaning fees booked directly through Freshwater Vacation Rentals are NOT taxable. (This is a way to save you $$.) b, Even though our room rate is generally less per night during the Spring, Fall and Winter, no one wants the cleaning quality to decrease. c. We expect our cleaners to clean at the same level they would for the Peak Summer season, year-round. d. We pay our cleaners a living wage. They deep clean, wash all the linens and prep each bed, regardless of how many people are on the reservation. Perspective: a. When a couple is staying at a large house, and using only 25% of it, do they really want the home cleaned only 25%? Of course not. b. When considering how many beds will be used, there are many variables-- Who are couples? Just friends? Family? Do all couples sleep in the same bed? Who snores? c. Yes, sometimes the cleaner will make more money on your stay than the property owner or management company. It is essential to keep the space fresh and consistently cleaned throughout the year. Please note: If you are truly just staying in as a couple at the West Hagerman Lake House, and will not need to venture upstairs, we can do so at a reduced cleaning fee upon request.
