Booking a Villa

Not so Small Print...

Having seen the pictures and read all about the fantastic villas, you should be ready for a great vacation in the Orlando area.  However, you need to understand the terms and conditions associated with booking our villas.  This is to ensure that you get the maximum from your stay, come to no harm around the villas and are fully aware of what we expect from you.  

Please take time to read and understand all sections associated with the Terms & Conditions in booking a villa.

Booking & Occupancy

  • The 'Primary Renter' must be at least 21 years of age and is responsible for compliance with the booking terms and conditions, as well as the conduct of the booking party during the rental period.  The 'Villa' is the designated rental villa and the 'Arrival Date' is the date of arrival at the the Villa for the specified rental period.  The 'Owners' are the current owners of the villas or representatives of the owners and the 'Management Company' are responsible for the day-to-day running of the villas.

  • A booking is only confirmed when a completed Booking Reservation form and the required payment are received and accepted by the Owners or Management Company.  

  • The maximum licensed occupancy of each villa is 8 persons and only persons listed on the Booking Reservation form are eligible to reside during the rental period.  The Management Company reserves the right to refuse admission or expel any persons not so listed.  The Owners must be informed of any amendments to the list of persons on the Booking Reservation form prior to the Arrival Date.  Where the maximum occupancy is exceeded or the conduct of the party is deemed unacceptable, the Management Company and/or Owners have the right to terminate the booking agreement and expel all persons from the Villa.

  • Unless otherwise indicated, check-in is 4pm on the Arrival Date and check-out is 10am on the day of departure.

  • Unless otherwise indicated, pool heating is not included during the rental period and may be subject to a separate charge.

  • The Owners reserve the right to change these terms and conditions at any time, and the Primary Renter agrees to abide by the most recent version of these.

Payments

  • Where the Arrival Date is in excess of 56 days from the current date, then a non-refundable deposit must be paid to confirm the booking.  Where the Arrival Date is within 56 days of the current date, then full payment is required to confirm the booking .

  • Once the booking is confirmed, the rental price is guaranteed against increase, subject to changes and the conditions of payment being met.  Requested changes to the Arrival Date, duration of stay or additional cost items may alter the rental price and are excluded from this guarantee.  In the event of any cheque not being honoured by the bank (on which it is drawn) or other charges incurred through payment to confirm the booking, these charges will be added to the rental price.

  • The outstanding balance of the rental price is payable no later than 56 days prior to the Arrival Date.

  • A security deposit of 150/US$250 for the first 14 nights plus 50/US$75 per additional 7 nights (or part thereof) is payable no later than 56 days prior to the Arrival Date (or as indicated by the Owners).  Subject to a post-stay inspection by the Management Company, the security deposit is fully refundable.  Any damage, breakages, theft of contents, negligence, non-compliance with these terms and conditions or excessive post-stay cleaning may incur a charge against the security deposit.  The Primary Renter is liable for any additional amount whereby the cost of repair, replacement or cleaning exceeds the security deposit.

  • The Owners reserve the right to treat the booking as cancelled where the outstanding balance of the rental price or security deposit is not paid within the stated time period.  Such a cancellation is a full termination of any agreement between the Primary Renter and the Owners.  

Cancellation & Amendments

  • Where the Primary Renter requests an amendment or cancellation to the booking, any such change must be made in writing to the Owners.  Any change will not become effective until agreed and confirmed in writing by the Owners.
