From the beginning of our rental, we have had poor and unprofessional experiences with Cool Villas representatives.

We promptly filed some of the concerns we noticed with the VIlla (malfunctioning Awnings, broken washing machine, stuck front door, broken clips for screen doors, deck retaining water due to poor drainage, etc.) with Cool Villas; especially the washing machine issue. Due to their negative handling of the issue, we contacted Flatio.com to report our findings. We also gave the benefit of the doubt by NOT accepting a credit from Flatio.com since we enjoyed th e location of the Villa. At this point, we are unsatisfied with the whole experience.

They (Cool Villas) have implied that we are responsible for damaging items, such as the extremely outdated and over-used (broken hinge for the door - which we replaced) Washing Machine. Most of the appliances in the unit are very old, perhaps from the time when the unit was built.

When there was a problem in the unit, their response was to blame/question us. This started with the washing machine's broken door and not spinning clothes properly, and the rep accused me of "breaking the washing machine". The washing machine & other appliances are very old, and heavily used. These issues were never resolved satisfactorily. To the last day I would have to wring out clothing manually and hope they would dry in a reasonable time, due to excess water. The washer would take hours to wash.

A number of times I had to do the laundry outside of the unit at Albufeira Marina's public Lavandaria. We even paid another Lavandaria in Gale to wash/dry our clothes on one occasion.

On one occasion, we could not open the oven door. It was jammed, and we had to wait several days, and then several hours for the technician to take apart the entire oven, and rebuild it with new hinges.

Shortly after we entered the unit, the front door would not open. My husband had to climb through the bathroom window to get into the unit, and, still could not open the door from inside. I had to enter the unit from the side gate and screen doors while waiting for the repair person to come and lube and fix the front door. Cool Villas behaved as if the front-door problem was our fault.

Their negative attitude made us feel uncomfortable contacting them for other issues. We have rented with 3 other providers in Portugal, and have never had an experience like this before.

On Sunday evening, our penultimate day, Cool Villas came over to do a final inspection, and after about 30 minutes declared that everything was fine. Last evening, I received a text accusing me of bleaching some of the bathroom towels, and asking me to pay for damage. I did not have bleach, nor currently know how to identify bleach products in Portugal. We had noticed the a couple of the towels had bleach marks from the beginning, but it wasn't a big deal for us. This indicates their inspections are not thorough, as they should have noticed the towel damage before we arrived.

The Cool Villas' reps are liars, whose default is to blame the guest.

We will be sure to use social media to denounce their behavior.

FAQ
What happens after I make a reservation?

Once you send a reservation request, the landlord is notified that you are interested in their offer. From that moment, they have 24 hours to approve or reject your reservation.

Landlords are mainly interested in the profile of their tenant. Do not forget to fill in all necessary information, add your profile picture, or even make a short video about yourself. Doing that will make you more attractive for the owner and your reservation will more likely get approved.

What is the standard furnishing of flats?
All the apartments on offer on Flatio must meet certain standards. We require fully furnished and equipped ones, dishes, cutlery and internet connection included.
What is a medium-term rent?
The duration of a medium-term rent is usually 1 to 12 months. Most of the landlords offer long-term rents or rents for just a few days, therefore getting a medium-term rent without Flatio is not that easy.
Can I go through the contract before I make a reservation of the housing?

You can take a look at the contract in advance and online with every offer. After you sign it, you will find it in the application My Housing.

While arranging a contract on Flatio, you do not have to worry that it could be disadvantageous for you. Our contracts are made so that we avoid all problems! All of them are the same, used by all the landlords on Flatio.

Can I see the flat personally before signing?

Why would you waste time on personal apartment tours? Just use our virtual tour, which allows you to visit several flats in a just a few minutes, and you don't even have to leave your house.

We vouch for all our flat offers! If one does not look like it does on our website, you will get your money back and we will arrange compensatory accommodation for you.

How can I pay?
On Flatio, you have a variety of payment methods to choose from. You can use your card, payment gateway or bank transfer. Just pick the one which suits you the most.
How can I cancel my reservation?

How you can cancel a reservation varies depending on what stage the reservation is in.

Is your reservation request still waiting for landlord approval? Then you can simply cancel it directly from your My Housing web app!

However, suppose the owner has already approved your reservation request, and you are no longer interested in it. In that case, you can still cancel the reservation before you sign the lease agreement. Just consider that you should do this only in essential cases. Because when the landlord accepts your reservation, their property is stopped being advertised, and they can lose the chance to rent their property to someone else.

Do you have an approved reservation and also a valid agreement? In order to cancel your reservation, contact Flatio customer support well in advance of your contract beginning (the specific time and amount of refund depends on the type of cancellation policy).
