GUEST TERMS & CONDITIONS

Reservations for accommodation by guests (the Guest) are accepted by Parterre Holiday Apartments (the Owner).

CORONAVIRUS NOTICE: For all future bookings we will continue to offer a full refund or postponement if government travel regulations prevent your whole party from travelling to the property or the Owner is prevented from offering their property for rental. This offer, which is outside our normal Terms and Conditions, does not apply to illness or advice to self-isolate.

The Agreement: The rental agreement is between the Guest and the Owner. The contract is deemed to have been made once the Guest has paid a deposit and the Owner has dispatched a confirmation of booking. The Guest must be over 18 years of age at the time of booking.

Booking: The Guest who makes the booking is deemed to have agreed to these Terms and Conditions will be responsible for all persons included in the booking and should ensure that they are all aware of these Terms & Conditions. The Owner reserves the right to decline any booking or refuse to hand over a key to any person who has not complied with these Terms & Conditions.

Payment: For bookings made more than 4 weeks before arrival, a deposit (part payment) of 25% of the total cost of the holiday, is required. The balance is due 4 weeks before the holiday commences. For bookings made less than 4 weeks before arrival, the total amount is payable in full on booking.

The Guest agrees to pay the balance of the payment 4 weeks before the holiday is due to start. Email reminders are sent, but delivery cannot be guaranteed. Where a Guest fails to pay their balance by the due date the booking may be cancelled and the deposit retained.

Cleaning: The Guest is responsible for leaving the accommodation in good order and in a clean condition; otherwise a cleaning charge will be levied. Please note Guests are expected to leave the property in a similar state to which they find it (reasonable cleaning excepted). Please abide by this convention so we can continue to provide good value for Guests.

Number of People using Holiday Accommodation: The Owner permits the Guest and members of the Guest’s party (but no one else) to occupy the property for holiday purposes only. The Guest must declare the correct number of additional Guests during booking and, if this changes, must inform the Agent before the rental commences of any change. No more than the maximum number of persons stated on the website may occupy a property unless by prior written agreement with the Owner. Extra charges may be applicable if the number of Guests differs from the number on the booking.

Arrival/Departure: The properties are available for occupation from 4.00 pm on the first day of the holiday and must be vacated by 10.30 am on the last day.

Cancellation or Changes by the Guest: Once the holiday is booked the Guest has entered into a legally binding contract. If the Guest cancels, for whatever reason (including medical and weather related) then no refund of the deposit will be due, and within 6 weeks of the holiday no refund of the full balance is due. In the event that the property is re-let, for the cancelled period, the Agent may at their discretion refund the amount paid subject to an admin fee and any other costs. In the event the cancelled period is re-let for a lesser amount the lesser amount will be refunded.

It is recommended and expected that the Guest will have or will take out a holiday insurance policy (which includes cancellation insurance covering sickness and unavoidable reasons for cancellation) prior to their stay.

Pets: The Guest may only bring such pets as are booked in by the Owner at the time of booking. A charge will be made per pet.

If damage or extra cleaning is caused by pets the Guest may be billed for that charge.

Guests should not remove any item from the property. The Owner may ask for reasonable replacement costs. In the instance of damage the Owner can automatically monies via the payment method provided at booking.

Nuisance: Guests should not cause nuisance or annoyance to occupants of adjacent  property.

If, in the opinion of the Owner, any person is not suitable to continue their occupation of the property because of unreasonable behaviour, damage or nuisance to other parties, the contract may be treated by the Owner as discharged and the Owner may repossess the property immediately. The Guest will remain liable for the whole cost of rental and no refund shall be due.

Access: Guests must allow reasonable access to the property by the Owner for maintenance given reasonable notice.
