Thank you very much for your stay and your feedback. I am very sorry that you are not a 100% happy with your stay. As we do not allow any pets on the property and I do not own a dog it was definitely not dog poop but maybe that of wildlife. Before a guest arrives we clean the house and garden thoroughly. However due to the flora and fauna and wildlife in Florida it may happen that due to wind, rain or wildlife, that some leaves are laying in the garden or that like in your case a racoon or squirrel popped during the time after we cleaned and before you checked in. This is just natural and nothing we can control. We are renting a vacation home with a tropical garden and not a closed atrium, this means that as soon as you have checked in, the cleanliness of the house and garden is your responsibility. This is one of the major differences between a hotel with maid and lawn service and a private vacation home.
