The kitchen, usually combined with the living room, is completely set up (fridge, freezer, induction cooktop, oven and microwave, dishwasher) and equipped (plates, pots, pans, glasses, crockery, coffee maker, kettle, etc.). Other devices are available on request (such as a blender, a juicer, etc.).

The stylishly decorated bathroom with bath/shower (in some cases only shower) offers towels, hairdryer, scales, toothbrush, bathrobe, etc.

The bedroom

The bedroom consists of a double bed with quality mattress, new pillows, two sets of bed linen per bed, a duvet, and large wardrobes with plenty of clothes hangers. Additional beds for visitors are available upon request.

General

Some apartments have a washing machine and dryer in the apartment itself, but there is always a communal area on the ground floor of each house with washing machines for you to use.

For security reasons, there is also a videophone in each apartment (some apartments still have an intercom). In addition, the access door closes automatically in double lock.

The Ali Babashop

As far as decoration is concerned, we will decorate your apartment and add all useful items.  If something is missing or if it does not match your taste, then you are welcome in the Ali Babashop, open every Thursday from 2pm to 8pm. You can personalize your apartment with a wide choice of paintings, cushions, linen, glasses, blenders, candles, etc.  Adding items and colors according to your preference is completely free of charge!

Electricity and gas (where not included in the charges)

When you check in, we will check the gas and electricity meters and confirm them by taking a picture, showing the number of the meter (= apartment) and the consumption data.

Engie, our administration partner, is necessary to open and close the meters at check-out. All this is done to keep energy costs to a minimum.

Insurance, TV, internet WIFI, free use of washing machine and dryer, maintenance of the boiler and the apartment itself, starter pack with linen and kitchen products, 24/7 assistance and the Ali Baba shop.

Handling charges

Together with the payment of the first month’s rent, a handling fee will have to be paid for the preparation of the inventory of the property at check in and check out, for checking the meters and the necessary administration at the energy company as well as the “final cleaning fee”. This amount varies according to the size of the property.
