We employ all of our Housekeepers on a year-round, full-time basis.  This has allowed us to build a dedicated, highly skilled team that knows your home as well as you do.

Our Housekeeping team utilizes our smart lock systems to enter a special door code upon completing each property clean, which then informs our Property Inspectors that the home is ready to inspect.  Upon completing the property inspection, the inspector then enters their ‘clean & inspected’ code which alerts the Guest Services department that the home is ready for guest arrival.

This small, tech-savvy step in the cleaning process has allowed us to delight numerous guests with the offer of an early check-in on their arrival day.


Property Inspections

Our dedicated Property Inspections team visit every home after it has been cleaned to ensure we keep the highest of housekeeping standards.

In addition to going through a comprehensive checklist of cleaning checks, they also check all audio/visual/WIFI connectivity, fireplace operation and adjust the property’s heating to ensure that the guest enjoys a warm welcome on all levels.

The Property Inspections team also oversee annual deep cleaning, carpet cleaning and restock of all inventory items in your home.
