What is a verified property?

Every property on our website has been inspected and photographed by one of our agents. This doesn’t mean that it’s pristine or luxurious; Verified simply means that we did our best to disclose any element of risk that could negatively affect your stay. It means transparency!


During each property inspection, the agent collects and discloses as many details as possible, even the bad ones!


We validate the identity of landlords during the inspection and we contact their previous tenants for references.


Get a good feel for it! Thanks to 360° technology and HD photos allowing you to walk through your new home digitally.


Every booking is assigned to an agent who calls you shortly after you apply to answer any question in one-on-one.


Any doubt or emergency? Don’t wait 2 days before getting a reply. Our agents respond within hours, if not minutes.


Don’t spend hours organizing showings in person. Exploring our entire portfolio digitally will take you just a few minutes.

Pay After

Any payment you pre-authorize won't be processed until the landlord accepts your booking. No confirmation, no charge.

Flexible Cancellation

After booking an option, you may visit it in person before its refund policy expires. Not happy? Get 100% refund of the rent deposit.

Check-in Protection

You have until 48 hours after you move-in to conduct your personal inspection. Only then is your payment released to the landlord.
