Booking process, payment terms, prices and currency
We grant Guests the possibility to submit booking requests through our website by filling and submitting an online form. Available dates for the properties offered by us are available on the page of each respective property we offer on our Website.
Although the availability calendar on our website is synchronised with the Airbnb, Vrbo and Booking.com systems via Lodgify, we must confirm availability before confirming any reservations in order to minimize any risks of double-booking. The confirmation and any subsequent communication regarding the booking request shall be carried out through the means of communication provided to us by the Guest during the booking request submission, unless differently agreed upon by the Parties.
The prices stated on our website are inclusive of V.A.T and shall be charged to the Guest upon final confirmation of a booking request. Prices may vary according to seasonality and when special offers are on. A breakdown of the price will be shown when dates for a specific apartment are entered when confirming a booking request. All invoices shall be calculated and issued in Euros. Prices stated in other currencies are a guide only and the Guest should in the event of having the opportunity using an accepted payment method for paying the invoice(s) in currencies other than in EUR shall take any and all risks of any currency fluctuations.
We accept secure online payments with Stripe integration via Lodgify. Credit card details are requested at booking request stage or when a quote payment link is sent by us further to a Guest having contacted us by email. Guests are not charged until we confirm the booking. In the event the Guest fails to pay in accordance with the agreed terms and conditions, this may result in retracting the reservation made on the accommodation.
Upon confirming a reservation, we require full payment of the reservation unless stated otherwise upon confirmation.
Your booking request shall not be deemed confirmed until full payment for the reservation has been received by the Host. In the event the parties have agreed differently, the booking request shall be deemed confirmed upon the explicit confirmation of the Host.
The Guest shall then be issued with a booking confirmation and/or a receipt of full payment (as the case may be). The Host will then provide the Guest with location details, the property terms and conditions and access instructions/check in process. Any person booking on behalf of a third party shall be termed the Guest and shall be bound by these Terms and Conditions.
Modification of confirmed bookings
The Guests shall be responsible in the event they make any modifications to a confirmed booking request including but not limited to the following: changing the number of guests staying at the Host’s accommodation, changing the dates of the booking as well as changing the property of the Host.
The Guest acknowledges that by making modifications to a booking request or a confirmed booking the Host shall be entitled to request additional payments.
Cancellations and refunds
It is strongly recommended that the Guest takes out an insurance policy with an insurance company of their choice to cover any cancellation which becomes necessary, including, but not solely, illness (COVID & other), flight/ferry cancellation, compulsory quarantine and self-isolation. We are not selling, promoting, endorsing or recommending any particular product, and do not benefit financially from, nor have any formal relationship with any insurance provider.
Upon cancellation by the Guest:
1. For bookings made through Airbnb, Booking.com or VRBO the cancellation policy of the respective OTAs will be followed.
2. For bookings made directly with the Host via the website and/or social media pages the following policies will be followed:

The Host provides a payment receipt voucher for this purpose. The Guest is to provide proof of the valid reason. A valid reason is considered to be sudden illness or impossibility to travel due to previously unknown medical conditions; family mourning up to 2nd degree relation; being called in for Jury service.
iv.No refund is given for cancellation not listed in these terms unless agreed to in writing with the Host on booking.
In case of force majeure, due to an event which occurs after booking, including –
i.Government restrictions which prohibit travelling to, staying at or returning from the accommodation location. This does not include non-binding travel advisories and similar government guidance.
ii.Natural disasters, acts of God, large-scale outages of essential utilities, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, and other severe and abnormal weather events. This does not include weather or natural conditions that are common enough to be foreseeable in that location – for example, hurricanes occurring during hurricane season in Florida.
iii.Government-declared local or national emergencies, epidemics, pandemics, and public health emergencies. This does not include diseases that are endemic or commonly associated with an area – for example, malaria in Thailand or dengue fever in Hawaii.
A full refund, less a service fee of EUR100, or the possibility to postpone the reservation to a future available date of the same duration, with the newly booked dates falling within a 48-month period calculated from the original booking check-in date shall be given by the Host in any of the cases above further to proof having been forwarded together with a request for cancellation or postponement of the reservation by the Guest up to 48hrs before check-in date.
Other events, such as unexpected disease, illness (including COVID-19) or injury; flight and/or ferry cancellations; travel advisories and/or government guidance which do not prohibit or ban travel; loss of or expired travel documents; self-isolation and quarantine, are excluded from cancellations that fall under force majeure.
In the event the Host cancels an already confirmed booking at any point in time before the check-in date, the Guest shall receive a full refund. The Host cannot be held liable in case of cancellation. The Host will always do its utmost to fulfill its promise of service.
Guest(s) shall have the opportunity to post reviews on the website as well as rate their experience in the property the Guest booked and stayed in.
