VILLA 4 MYKONOS acts as an agent for Property owners (“Owner”) and their representatives (“Owner Representative”) in promoting Properties for rent and arranging bookings. Each time a Guest confirms a booking of a Property through VILLA 4 MYKONOS, a Rental Contract is entered into between the Owner or the Owner’s Representative for the agreed period (“Rental Period”), and the guest in whose name the booking is made (the “Guest”). Each time a Guest books a Property through VILLA 4 MYKONOS, the Guest is deemed to have agreed to these terms and conditions. The Rental Contract is not effective until VILLA 4 MYKONOS has confirmed the Guest’s bookin.
When the Guest makes a booking request, the Guest must make the appropriate deposit payment to VILLA 4 MYKONOS within 5 working days of availability confirmation. The following deposit payment must be received by VILLA 4 MYKONOS:
- For rentals beginning more than 60 days after the date of the booking request – a deposit of 30% of the total rental amount is payable
If the required deposit payment is not received within the 5 working day period, VILLA 4 MYKONOS reserves the right to void the Guest’s booking request.
Where a 30% deposit applies to the booking, the Guest must pay the remaining 70% balance not less than 3 days before the scheduled arrival date.
All payments must be made in EURO, unless otherwise agreed with VILLA 4 MYKONOS, and must be made in accordance with VILLA 4 MYKONOS’s payment instructions as set out in the Guest’s booking confirmation.
If payments are not made on or before the due dates as required herein, the Owner or the Owner’s Representative may cancel the booking, in which case this Rental Contract will be thereby terminated without any further notice required. Cancellation charges may apply as detailed below.
Arrival / Departure times
Typical check-out and check-in times are 12:00 noon and 3:00pm respectively unless stated otherwise. VILLA 4 MYKONOS will work with the Owner or Owner’s Representative to try to accommodate the Guest’s actual arrival and departure times, subject to availability. Please do advise VILLA 4 MYKONOS of any changes to the Guest’s schedule so every effort can be made to accommodate them.
