Please leave the apartment close to how you found it. Remove all uneaten food from fridge, wash your dishes and please throw away your garbage. Keep the hallway noise to a minimum out of respect for your neighbor.
After living in 14 cities throughout the US and 5 in Europe, I decided to move back home to VA. I bought an old run down historic property and renovated it for two years turning into my dream space. It has two furnished corporate rentals on the 2nd floor. I work and live on the 1st floor, which doubles as a photography studio and on occasion gets rented out for upscale private events. I am a professional photographer and web designer, but usually I'm fixing, cleaning or tiling something... Yes, I am the property janitorial goddess.
Hopefully you will love it as much as I do.
