Staff Profile: Lisa, Our Newest Cleaning Professional at Bowen Island Accommodations

We love the work our cleaners do for Bowen Island Accommodations. They are the backbone of our business, making sure our properties are in the best shape possible for our guests to enjoy while on vacation. We've had guests refer specifically to the cleanliness of our properties as the reason why they booked with Bowen Island Accommodations.

So at a recent staff dinner chez Jan Stevens, we discussed a blog entry idea: we thought it might interest guests to put faces and names to the hard-working cleaners, whose work we enjoy.
