How does the reservation process work?
You can make the reservation through our website. Select your destination, your arrival and departure dates, and the amount of accommodated people. You will be offered all the apartments that we have available for your dates.
Once you have chosen your apartment, fill in all the fields with your details and proceed a payment of 30% of the total price over our secure payment platform, to confirm the booking. You will immediately receive the confirmation through email.
How do I pay for my reservation? Is it safe to pay by card?
You can pay for your reservation with credit / debit card through our secure payment platform, that is 100% reliable and protected against fraud. You can also choose to pay by PayPal.
We understand credit cards are an integral part of the payment process to book our apartments; therefore, we take our job to protect your data very seriously.
That is the reason why our bank's system uses credit card encryption as a security method to reduce the likelihood of a credit or debit card information to be stolen.
The credit card encryption involves both the security of the card, the security of the terminal where a card is scanned, and the security of the transmission of the card’s information between the terminal and a back-end computer system. So, when you give any information to our website, we make sure it is secure.
It's possible that your card doesn't meet the security requirements and gets denied. In this case, please contact us.
Are the prices charged per person or per apartment?
In some of our apartments, prices may vary depending on the number of guests. Others rentals may have a fixed price regardless of the number of people. Check our prices with the search engine.
You should never do a reservation for less people than you will stay at the apartment. If this happens, you will have to pay the difference for the maximum capacity of the apartment.
What is the minimum number of nights I can stay?
The minimum stay for the touristic apartments is 2 nights, but depending on the season and events in the city, we can give you special conditions.
The minimum stay for long-term rentals is 31 nights.
Will you clean the apartment during my stay? Is it included in the price?
The apartment will be delivered clean to you, during your stay we won't clean it.
We can offer you an extra celaning, but it has an extra cost, that depends on at which apartment you are staying, the season, and how many of you there are.
To request this extra service, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Can I pay by credit card upon arrival at the apartment?
We accept payment by cash and by credit card. It is required to have the phisical card with you and insert it into our TPV. We can not charge cards by photo or numbers. The tourist tax must be paid in CASH.
- Please prepare your journey and organise your payments before arrival -
You can also make a bank transfer before your arrival, but make sure to do it in advance; the payment must arrive to our bank account before your check-in day. Only providing the receipt of the transaction will not be accepted.
How do I get from the airport to my apartment?
There are many transport options available from the airport to the city center: by metro, bus, train, taxi, or car rental.

Do I have to bring my own towels and bed sheets?
Your apartment will be delivered totally ready for your stay, with the beds done, including pillows, duvets (depeding on the season), blankets and linen. We also provide 2 towels per person.
There is washing machine in all of our apartments, this way you will be able to wash the towels during your stay, if you want to. It's important to remember, that you are renting an apartment, not a hotel room. We do not provide hotel service like daily cleaning or change of towels/bed linen. If you want, you can order this service for an extra fee.
I'm traveling with a baby, can I request a baby crib?
If you need a baby crib, you can add it to your reservation during the booking process. This has a 25€/reservation cost.
If you need more than one baby crib, or didn't add it to the reservation during the booking process, contact us directly at email@example.com.

How can I cancel my reservation? Will I receive a refund?
If you chose a non-refundable rate, you will not be able to alter or cancel the reservation for free, and in case of cancellation you will lose the total amount of the reservation.
If you chose a refundable rate, you will be able to cancel your reservation and receive a refund according to the cancellation policy of the rate.
What is a tourist tax and how can I pay it?
The tourist tax is requested by the government of each community of Spain. There are cities that do not obligates tourists to pay a tourist tax (such as Madrid) and others that do (such as Catalonia).
Each zone requests different amounts.
It's important to know that tourist tax must be paid only for the first 7 nights of the stay and for people over the age of 16. The tourist tax must be paid in CASH ONLY upon arrival at the apartment.
Do I need to pay a security deposit?
Yes! We always demand a security deposit for our apartments that has to be paid upon arrival.
The amount of the security deposit depends on the chosen apartment and the length of the stay.
The security deposit will be refunded once the cleaning staff has verified that there is no damage to the apartment.
In case there is damage to the apartment, it will be discounted from the security deposit.
In case of causing inconvenience or noise to the neighbours' community, you lose the deposit as compensation.
The security deposit can be paid by credit/debit card (the amount will be blocked until your departure) or by bank transfer. In case of leaving a deposit in cash, it will be refunded via bank transfer (transaction fees will be charged to you).
For reservations made for more than one month you must pay a security deposit that equals to two months of rent (the Spanish law demands to pay two months rent in advance as a security deposit for temporary leases).
The security deposit will be refunded once the cleaning staff has verified that there is no damage to the apartment, and all utility bills are paid. In case there is damage to the apartment or unpaid bill, it will be discounted from the security deposit.
What happens if my money is not unblocked after my departure?
Normally, the amount of the security deposit will be deblocked on your credit/debit card once we have verified the condition of the apartment after your departure. The responsible for checking the apartment is the cleaning and the maintenance staff.
Each banks procedure for releasing the money is different, if you have any problem, first contact your bank, and if you still need help, contact us.
When will be my security deposit refunded?
We will return the deposit after verifying that you leave the apartment in the same conditions in which it was delivered.
In case we find damage and have to charge you for it, it can take up to 5 days depending on the repairs we have to make. We can not refund you until we know exactly how much we have to charge for the damage.
Remember that although we deblocked your security deposit (or a part of it), each bank works according to its own normative and possibly needs several days to process the transaction.
If you have a reservation for more than one month, your security deposit will be refunded via bank transfer.
First we will have to verify the apartment and if there are pending / unpaid utility bills. It's important to keep in mind that we will receive some of the utility bills after your departure.
Is the inventory done at the beginning and at the end of my stay?
We always prepare and double-check the apartment before you arrive, so we know it very well what's inside. We will give you the inventory upon arrival.
You will need to double-check the apartment before your departure. Our cleaning and maintenance staff will do a revision and the inventory after you left.
In case you notice damage to the apartment during your stay or something doesn't work well, the best you can do is to let us know about it. We will take care of the repairs, you will have the perfect apartment again for the rest of your stay and we will be able to speed up the process of refunding your deposit.
Are utilities included in the final price?
All costs of the utilities are included in the final price of the touristic apartments and reservations shorter than one month. Of course this doesn't mean that you can waste them, since if we notice it, it will be charged to you.
