Terms & Conditions

Please read through our terms and conditions

BOOKINGS

The signing of the booking form by the party leader confirms acceptance of the terms and conditions set out and shall be binding on the persons listed on the booking form intending to occupy the premises (or any subsequent amendments to this list)

Only the persons named on the booking form may occupy the property. Failure to comply may result in all occupants being asked to vacate the property immediately. If at any time prior to arrival at the home you wish to change any of the members of your party, details of the proposed new party member(s) must be advised in writing.

No all male parties or parties of guests who are under the age of 21 will be accepted. No pets allowed. For the comfort of guests this is a no smoking villa.

To ensure comfort, security and peace of mind our home is registered with the state authorities and is in full compliance with all relevant legislation.

The owners reserve the right to decline to accept or retain any person as a Client whose conduct is deemed to be disruptive and effects the enjoyment of other residents on the estate. We shall be under no liability to accept any costs incurred or responsibility for any such person.

RENTAL PERIOD

The rental period generally consists of a Saturday to Saturday booking, however other periods are occasionally available (please ask for details). Midweek bookings may incur a 10% surcharge. Stays of 6 nights or less will incur a cleaning fee of £50 / $85. The villa is available for occupation from 4.00pm local time on the day of arrival and is to be vacated by 10.00am on the morning of departure. Vacating after 10.00am may incur a charge equivalent to one days accommodation cost unless previously agreed with the owner. Guests can arrange to arrive earlier or depart later if the villa is empty.

PAYMENT

Together with your completed booking form, a non- refundable deposit of £100 / $170 per week is due within 7 days of your provisional booking. Upon receipt of your deposit we will send you confirmation of your booking. Payment of the balance, including security deposit, is due 8 weeks prior to your arrival date. Upon receipt we will send out directions and lock box number to your villa.

SECURITY DEPOSIT

The client is solely responsible for any loss, damage or breakages that may be caused to the property or its contents during your stay. We require a refundable security deposit to be paid 8 weeks prior to your arrival. This deposit will be repaid to your party by cheque as soon as the management company has reported no loss or damage and that you have returned the keys. Our local management company checks the home before your arrival and after your departure and will advise us of any faults. This may include additional cleaning costs for removal of stains due to spillages. We retain the right to retain the security deposit (either in part or full) to cover loss, damage or non- return of keys. Receipts for repairs / replacements will be provided in the unlikely event that such retention of the security deposit is required. We reserve the right to pursue a guest for recompense for any and all damages caused which may exceed the value of the security deposit and will require payment within 14 days of being served notice of this. Florida has a sub tropical climate and care must be taken with food that is left uncovered. Uncovered food can attract insects very quickly. Any added cost for pest control services incurred for lack of care may be passed to you.

CANCELLATION BY GUESTS

All cancellations must be notified in writing. In the event of your party needing to cancel, the following conditions will apply.

  • 5-8 weeks prior to departure 50% of the total charge to offset the discount that we will need to re-book the property at short notice.
  • Any cancellation within the final 5 weeks will regrettably result in loss of the whole booking fee (not including the security deposit)
  • Failure to pay the final balance by the due date (8 weeks prior to arrival) may result in loss of the booking and deposit. If we do not receive the payment we will endeavour to contact the guest but if we receive no payment or communication, then unfortunately we reserve the right to cancel the booking and retain the deposit.

If you do have a problem, PLEASE contact us as soon as possible to discuss the matter. We recommend that all guests take out holiday, injury, medical and cancellation insurance cover at the time of booking.

CANCELLATION BY THE OWNERS

In the unlikely event that personal circumstances necessitate cancellation of the booking we will refund any monies paid by the party (without interest, compensation or consequential loss of any kind). However the management company will always seek to relocate your booking to a villa of a similar or superior standard.

Force Majeure : The owners and their agents accept no responsibility or liability for any loss or damage or alterations to the terms of this booking caused by events beyond the owners control including, but not restricted to, war, civil commotion, flight delays or cancellations, technical difficulties with transportation, alteration or cancellation or schedules by carriers, adverse weather conditions, fire, flood, industrial dispute or any other event beyond our control.

SAFETY & SECURITY

To comply with state fire regulations under no circumstances may more than the maximum number of persons identified on the booking form occupy the property. The swimming pool is used entirely at the guests own risk as the owners do not accept liability for any injury however caused as a result of the use of the pool. No diving is allowed and children must be supervised at all times whilst in the pool area. Glass is not permitted in the pool area at any time. Please use the plastic items provided.

Your satisfaction with our villa is paramount to us and should you consider that the matter is of a serious nature, we ask you to contact us direct within 14 days of your departure from our villa. However, if the problem has not been reported to the management company then we cannot accept any responsibility.
