Our house is the essence of shabby chic, which is esthetically different than modern homes. It is cleaned by a professional company every time guests leave and I fastidiously check over their work. The pool is cleaned weekly and probably had some leaves from the ocean winds. I met Jessica and her friends upon their arrival and they seemed quite amicable. I told her we lived in the pool house and to let me know if they needed anything. I am more than happy to accommodate the needs of my guests.
