Use the description section in your favour, highlighting the advantages and benefits of your property. Try to match what you write with quality photos for more clarity. It’s important to be honest and set the right expectations to avoid misunderstandings, disappointments or cancellations.

Entering the house you can find an open kitchen with all appliances you might need: a table, 4 wooden chairs and a PLASMA TV 32”. The living room has a very comfortable double sofa bed and large windows. The bathroom includes a washing machine and a comfortable shower. This apartment is perfect for accommodating up to four people in a modern and functional environment.'
'You'll be living in the trendy neighbourhood Porta Venezia, known for its stunning art-nouveau architecture and a vibrant LGBTQI+ scene. The area is a melting pot for different cultures, with many ethnic restaurants and bars for any taste and wallet. The apartment is located right next to a metro and train station Porta Venezia, so you can get anywhere in Milan with ease. Only a few minutes away is a 1.2 km-long shopping street Corso Buenos Aires and in 15 minutes you can reach the city centre by foot.'
'After your departure, the deposit will be refunded after the inventory inspection (if nothing is missing or broken). We inform you that to prepare your contract, we need the CODICE FISCALE, the enrollment letter of your school or the company you work for, and a valid identity document.'
