When booking with Kulak, please bare in mind that our properties are rented out on behalf of the owners.

This means that most properties will show available on their calendars- but they need approval from the owners first. Generally you have to enquire to book- even if the calendar says its available.

Properties that show they are unavailable are either booked for those dates, or the owners have restricted the rental during that time frame- for numerous reasons. These dates can sometimes open up at a later point.

We run Kulak on a very simple basis, with the owners coming first, as its their property that they wish to share with you.
