Cleanliness and safety are now at new levels.

The world has evolved through trying times to expect a new standard of cleanliness and safety. To help meet the needs and expectations of travelers, we’ve embarked on an Enhanced Hygiene Initiative based on the guidelines and recommendations from world-leading health organizations, such as the CDC and WHO.

A change for the better...

Homelike is actively migrating apartment owners to up their game when it comes to hygiene and cleaning practices. The initiative is an extension to Homelike’s Apartment Standards that are already in place. This means when you book with Homelike you can ensure that your health and safety are the highest priority, so you can get on with enjoying your home away from home

What does this mean for you?

Each apartment offering enhanced hygiene practices will now contain a reference in the respective highlight section of the listing.

 

The guidelines will be available to all property suppliers and we encourage them to commit and adopt these enhanced cleaning practices as quickly as possible.

 

The apartments that align with this initiative will take higher priority in how and when they appear in apartment search results, so you can have confidence in what you’re looking for.

 

An example of one of the key initiatives to protect you, property suppliers can commit to keeping their apartment empty for a minimum of 24-hours between bookings with no activity other than cleaning and sanitizing. Bookings will be automatically blocked during that time frame.

 

Hygiene items at your disposal, self-check-in, and options for regular hygienic cleaning during your tenancy are also considered to reassure tenant’s safety and wellbeing.
