Belvilla can arrange everything for you. From advertising to the cleaning of your home and from receiving guests to the complete rental administration. You can access everything via your personal online account 'My Belvilla'.

Do take away too personal items, such as photos and clothing. A good first impression is very important. Also make sure there is enough coffee and tea in the kitchen and that there are enough toiletries available. You can also welcome your guests with a bottle of wine or a box of chocolates to give them a warm welcome.
Are you unable to welcome your guests or clean the house after each stay? Then you can choose to have a caretaker take care of all this. You can search for them yourself or ask Belvilla to take over. We offer professional management services called Property Management Services.
Make it clear to your guests where and how they can check-in, especially when you’re not able to welcome them in person. When this is the case, send them a message or call them after their arrival to welcome them to see if there are any questions.
Checking out is usually easier and more straightforward than checking in. If you’re not able to see your guests off personally, be clear on the time they’re supposed to check out and where they should leave the key.
