The vast majority of apartments and villas on Sweet Home Abroad can be booked online. All that is required is a valid credit card and a few minutes of your time. However, some apartments and villas do not have occupancy calendars, and their availability needs to be confirmed with the owner or the local management company.
Of course, the former category of "online apartments" is much more convenient: you can select a property that suits your needs in terms of location, price, number of beds, and reserve the dates you require immediately. You can rest assured that your chosen apartment or villa will not be booked by somebody else, which is especially important in high season, during festivals, holidays, congresses.
If the apartment you have chosen belongs to the latter category of "offline apartments", you will find out about it while trying to book it: instead of a check-out page you will be shown a simple booking request form, which will be manually processed by our consultants.
Properties that cannot be booked online do not have dynamic availability calendars that their owners update regularly enough, and therefore their availability needs to be confirmed manually. We contact the owner or the manager of the apartment or villa on your behalf to verify the availability of your dates and confirm the quoted rates.
If the property is available, we will send you a link to a secure booking page created specifically for your request, where you will be able to pay the booking deposit and secure the apartment for your exciting trip.
In rare cases, the booking request may be denied by the owner/manager. Often owners who do not keep a real-time availability calendar rent their properties only during high season or at certain times of year. We make every effort to minimize the presence of such properties on our website, but sometimes offline apartments and villas can be more affordable and therefore more in demand among our clients.
If the apartment you have chosen for your trip is unavailable, we will be happy to offer you other attractive options.
