Two zloty of the climate fee – this is beyond our control. You will only have to pay the amount specified during the booking (reduced by the advance payment).

The amount of the deposit depends on the apartment and it usually falls between PLN 300,00 and PLN 500,00 – you will find the specific amount on the selected apartment’s website. The deposit may be paid either in cash or by card – we secure an appropriate amount on your bank account.

The key issue is to become a part of Rent like home. Once you make a couple of decisions and put necessary signatures, we will deal with the rest.
- Our employee will see and evaluate the apartment – within 24 hours we will draw up a list of lacking equipment.
- We will ask you to select the scope of the services you would like us to provide for you (upon request we can make your life easier in many ways – see questions 4, 5, 6, 8, 10)
- Within 24 hours we will prepare an agreement adjusted to your choices
- We will meet in Zakopane, sign the agreement and you will hand over the apartment to us. Alternatively, we may send a courier to you with the agreement and the handover protocol – you sign the agreement and the courier delivers a set of documents to us.
The remaining activities do not require your engagement unless you have enough time and you want to deal with the preparation of the real estate for rent by yourself.
You will receive the first profit after the first month of the rent of your apartment. Rent like home can prepare your apartment for rent in one week provided that it does not require changes within the scope of interior design. It all depends on the effective signing of the agreement between us.
Appropriate preparation of an apartment for rent is an important element of the satisfaction of your guests. Therfore we will help you do it and where possible we will do it for you. If you wish, our Home Stager may advise you on how to increase the attractiveness of your apartment by taking small necessary steps. The appropriate equipment in the apartment is also crucial. We have prepared its standard and in case something is missing we will deal with it on your behalf.
As you probably know we also deal with our guests in a comprehensive way at every stage of the stay – from cleaning and booking management to the collection of the keys during check-out.
However, for your convenience and upon request we can also:
a. prepare an apartment for rental, including purchase of all products from the list of required standard equipment on your behalf, as well as provide the service of interior design in order to increase its attractiveness in the eyes of the guests;
b. make all payments connected with a given real estate i.e., rent, utilities (electricity, TV), as well as the annual property tax,
c. insure an apartment ensuring the payment of compensation even in the event of damage caused by tourists,
d. take care of apartments’ technical condition and in case of any defects, we will deal with necessary repairs
To sum up – all you have to do is hand over the apartment and from that moment on we will take care of everything for you.
No. We will take care of it upon your request.
Absolutely not. Rent like home earns its pay in the form of a specified profit margin from payments made by guests renting your apartment. In the event of a period when there are no payments (e.g., during your stay in the apartment), you will not be charged with any payments.
First of all, destructions happen very rarely, but in case of any damage, we will take care of it. We charge a deposit fee from every guest in order to cover potential damage. In case the damage is higher than the amount of the deposit, we will execute the remaining amount due. The risk is minimum and in case the damage is not redressed, we will be responsible for it. This is guaranteed in our agreement.
We highly value honesty and transparency in mutual relations with guests and owners. Therefore upon special request, we will install motion detectors in your apartment. Thanks to them, with the use of online owner panel, you will easily find out whether anybody was in your apartment. In the same place – all the time – you have access to the booking calendar, thanks to which you will easily compare the conformity of this data.
