RENTAL AGREEMENT / TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Please ensure you read and understand the following terms and conditions pertinent to your accommodation rental. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
While we reserve the right to increase or decrease accommodation prices at any time, we will confirm to you the current price at the time of booking. As soon as you have confirmed your booking and paid your deposit or full payment, the cost of the rental is guaranteed against any increase, (unless these increases are brought about by Government action or there was a clear clerical/system error). This guarantee is offered subject to our conditions of payment being adhered to and providing you do not make any further amendments to your travel arrangements.
There are no additional fees in addition to the rental amount, taxes, and cleaning fee outlined on the booking screen. For instance, use of the pools & gym, pool bands, parking, etc are all included. Beach Service is included with a few select condos and that is clearly displayed in the property description if it is included.
ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE:
Check-in time is any time after 4:00 p.m. We reserve the right to extend check in time to 6:00 p.m. due to cleaning or required maintenance although this is extremely rare.

Upon Arrival, you may head straight up to the condo and use the code provided for the KABA Keyless Door Lock. The code activates at the Check-in Time and will work for the duration of your stay. To be clear, there is no need to check-in at an office or drive across town to pickup keys. We have tried to our best to make the beginning of your vacation as stress-free as possible. =)
Check-out time is any time before 10:00 a.m. Simply follow our basic checkout procedures and have a SAFE trip home. Failure to comply may result in an additional charge for late departure. If another guest is not checking in on the same day, a Late Checkout request can be made 24-48 hours before the scheduled checkout. Please understand that these requests are difficult to accommodate and a late checkout fee will likely apply.
