Should housekeeping find the villa in an unacceptable condition, photos will be taken and we will charge your credit card or bill you for damage repairs, replacement of missing contents, expenses resulting from agreement violations, trash left in unit, dirty dishes left unwashed, furniture moving, or unacceptable condition of villa on departure.
