Terms And Conditions


1. Price Promise
Once booking confirmation has been made and deposit (or full payment) paid, the cost of rental is guaranteed against any further increases. This guarantee is offered subject to our conditions of payment being met and on the understanding no further amendments are made to your booking.

2. Booking and Payment
a) Deposit
To confirm your reservation, a holding deposit of £200/$300 per week (or part week) for the rental period and a fully completed booking form (which will be emailed upon request) are required.

b) Payment of the Balance
The balance of the rental fee is due 8 weeks prior to the commencement of the rental period. We reserve the right to treat the booking as cancelled if we do not receive the balance by the due date. In the event of any cheque not being honoured by the bank on which it is drawn we will make a charge of £25/$40 to cover any bank charges and our administration costs.

3. Cancellation

The following charges will apply from the date of notification:
         Up to 56 days prior to departure: Deposit only (7 weeks).
         28- 55 days prior to departure: 50% of full rental cost (4 - 6 weeks).
         Within 28 days of departure: 100% of full rental cost.

4. Confirmed Bookings - Alterations
We will endeavour to accommodate alterations to confirmed bookings, but cannot guarantee to meet all such requests.

5. Rental Period
This begins at 4pm on the day of arrival and ends at 10am on the day of departure.  

6. Free Extended Check-out
Guests may stay until 3.30pm on the day of departure, however this is only available on bookings where no guests are due to arrive on the same day. In addition, this free extended check-out must be confirmed in writing by us before check-in.

7. Security Deposit
You will be required to provide a security deposit of £250/$450 with your full payment.  This is to be held as surety against loss or damage caused by any member(s) of your party. The security deposit is fully refundable and usually returned within 14 days of departure date

8. Sub-Letting
The accommodation is reserved exclusively for the people named on the booking form, and no other person is permitted to stay there.

9. Safety
It is a legal requirement to have the pool safety net erected around the pool when guests arrive, however it is the choice of the rentor as to whether this is taken down and stored safely for the duration of your holiday.  We cannot accept any responsibility whatsoever and howsoever caused for injury or damage as a result of the use of the pool and surrounding area. Guests are specifically requested not to allow unsupervised children to use the pool at any time.
Please also note that glass is not allowed in or around the pool area (plastic glasses are provided for use in the pool area). Should broken glass ever fall into the pool, it would be very difficult to see and could cause serious harm. Any breakages should be reported to the management company immediately.
Florida state law prohibits the use of charcoal or gas grills within the lanai (pool area) or for home owners to store gas bottles in their vacation villas.

10. Force Majeure
As the owners of the property, we will not be liable for loss or delay caused by any of the following: strikes, industrial dispute, riots, political unrest, hostilities, war or threat of war, terrorist activity, fire, flood, technical/weather problems with transport, aircraft grounding, closure of airports or ports, weather conditions or any other event beyond the owners' or their agents control.

11. Miscellaneous
This is our second home, and for the comfort of our guests, we do not permit smoking, pets, or barbeques in our villa or outside on the deck area.
Pool Heat is usually recommended between the months of October through to April, although guests can arrange for it to be on at any time of the year. The heater keeps the pool at a constant 82 degrees, but when the pump is off at night, or for periods during the day when not in use we would strongly recommend that guests use the pool cover as it facilitates the water reaching the required temperature when next in use. If guests require any adjustments to the temperature then please contact our management company for advice as this service will incur additional charges.
Feedback received from guests concerning their stay at our villa may be used in our promotional materials to help future guests make informed decisions regarding bookings. If you would prefer that your feedback was not used in this way, you should inform us in writing.
