Generally, because we occasionally can’t get you in by 4pm due to unforeseen circumstances related to guests departing and maintaining the houses properly. Also we call you on your cell phone when the house is ready after cleaning, and many times if you are in the area, you may check-in early! We also attempt to call you the day before your departure and confirm check-out times. Depending on the cleaning schedule we may allow you some additional time to depart. Generally2 because there are fewer back-to-back rentals (different parties coming and going on the same day). When that does happen we have to modify the check-in and out times to allow for cleaning. Generally3 in the off-season. During the summer on a back to back reservations we leave the key after the housekeepers are finished cleaning.
