A bond of one night's rent is required for each booking. Bond payment may be required either in advance or on arrival depending on the particular accommodation.

The owner shall not be liable for the breakage of the elevator or for any other inconveniences which are beyond his control.

Should the client have any query or complaint during the stay, this must be communicated to the owner prior to leaving the apartment. Queries/complaints made at the end of the stay will not be taken into consideration. In the event the client leaves the apartment without the owner being informed of such complaints, he/she shall loose all rights to claim a compensation.
