What is it?

In two words, the key box is the safe for your keys. 😎
It’s where you can be sure that the keys to your accommodation will be kept in a safe place.
Yes, you know exactly what we’re talking about, that safe well hidden in your room when you were a kid, where you put all your little secrets, your little coins and big bills, that no one but you could access… Well, there it is the same! 😁

Thanks to a code-protected lock, you can stop hiding your keys in the flower pot or under the doormat and put them safely without worries! 😉
