Terms and Conditions

Booking

A booking is valid only after the booking form has been completed in full, showing all details requested of all persons in the party; signed by the clients' Party Leader; the appropriate deposit has been paid to the owners; and the booking has been accepted in writing by the owners.  The booking is reserved exclusively for the party named in the booking form - and no other person is permitted to stay at the villa.

Deposit

A non-refundable booking deposit of £200/$250 per week or part week is required within 7 days of booking.  This will be deducted from the full payment due.

The balance of the rental charge is payable no less than 8 weeks before the commencement of the rental period.  Bookings made within 8 weeks of commencement require full payment with the booking form.  If the clients do not pay the balance due at the prescribed time, the owners reserve the right to cancel the booking.  The deposit is not refundable.

In the event of cancellation by clients, which must be made in writing, the following charges will apply:-

Up to 8 weeks prior to departure deposit only
5 to 8 weeks prior to departure 50% of total cost
0 to 5 weeks prior to departure 100% of total cost

If through circumstances beyond the owner's control, cancellation of bookings by the owner or his agents should occur, the owner will be liable to refund all monies paid by the client only or to make alternative arrangements by agreement with the client.

Security Deposit

A security deposit of £200/$250 ($300 if you have a dog) is required to be held by the owner and is payable with the balance payment.  It will be returned within 10 days of the completion of the rental period, and upon receipt of notification from the owner's agent that the key has been returned, and that no loss or damage has occurred to the property and its contents.

The client is held liable for the cost of making good all damage or loss to the property and contents during the period of rental.

Clients are recommended to fully cover themselves with holiday travel insurance. 

Owners do not accept responsibility or liability for the following:-

  • Loss or damage caused by force majeure, or events beyond their, or their agents, control.
  • Injury however caused as a result of the use of the property and its swimming pool area.  The pool is not designed for diving and parents should not allow unsupervised children to use the pool.  Glassware should never be taken to the pool and its surrounds.
  • Loss or damage to the clients property at any time, howsoever caused.
  • Delay or cancellation of client's travel arrangements.

General Conditions

  • This is a No Smoking villa.
  • Rental commences at 4:00pm on the arrival date, and the premises should be vacated by 10:00am on the day of departure.
  • Air-conditioning and other device controllers are preset for your comfort combined with cost efficiency.  Under no circumstances must any settings be altered - any resultant damage will be deducted from the security deposit.
  • All rentals include linens, towels, electricity and water use, but please try to use these as sensibly as you would at home
  • A telephone is provided.  Local calls are free, but a credit card will be needed to make long distance.
  • The property will be cleaned thoroughly before and after the rental period, and no food or household items will be left on the premises between rentals.
  • In the event of pool heating being requested and paid for, the owner cannot guarantee the pool temperature, as it will be affected by prevailing weather conditions.  If a pool blanket is provided, use of this over-night is recommended to ensure a warm swim in the morning .
  • The owner reserves the right to decline or accept bookings.
  • Minor breakages such as crockery or glassware will inevitably occur and it is much cheaper to replace these items yourself (they must be like for like, please), than for them to be discovered by the housekeeper.
  • The owners reserve the right for them or their agent to enter the property at any time, for whatever reason (client will be telephoned prior to entry unless in an emergency).
  • Use of barbeque must take place outside of the lanai and pool screen.  This is a Florida state fire regulation and must be strictly adhered to.
