Sandy, I appreciate your feedback; however, being this is my second home, It's not clear what kind of a place you thought you were staying. You kind of described what you would expect from a 5-star hotel. This is a single family 2nd home. We do the best we can to keep home in it's normal pristine condition. Your review regarding updating is unclear and perhaps a matter of opinion depending on what you are referring too. As for airing it out, we do when we are able to get down there and the weather is conducive. As for deep cleaning, other than normal dust that accumulates daily or carpet wear and tear, we try to tackle the dirt frequently. This is the main reason why I was slightly hesitant to allow you to bring your pet as I didn't want to have to deal with any potential messes or you to have to pay for professional cleaning. I'm sorry If this seems negative; however, you could be jeopardizing future renters with the way you left your review.
