    “We arrived, met by nice owners all looked ok on the surface.”

    We unpacked started to explore, found opened/ used food in cupboards/fridge/freezer, which we did not use, the pans, pots, cutlery stained and needed washing before use. Greasy stains where pans were. Bread bin, microwave, toaster all had to be cleaned before use. Wok really bad did not use. We washed two pans which we only used. Did not use oven as I refused to clean that. Had to sweep, mop kitchen floor before walking barefoot on it. Kitchen, bathrooms need refurb everywhere else was ok.
