Margaret,, You are so right on all points! We have indeed rented our home "as advertised at a lesser price other than FlipKey" through other avenues. Your other points are also conceded! Since your stay, my wife and I now personally inspect each week to assure the cleaning of the house exceeds expectations. Yes, I hope you will return after...
