BOOKING AND PAYMENT POLICY
To guarantee your reservation, a 30% advance of the total rental cost is required within 5 working days of availability confirmation. This prepayment is due at the time of booking by bank transfer only, in order to guarantee the booking. Please note that bookings will not be considered confirmed without the bank payment receipt. As soon as the payment of the advance is duly processed, Villa Eleven will issue a confirmation invoice to the Renter. At this stage the “requested period” can be considered secured. The balance will have to be paid via bank transfer or cash than your departure date.
The number of persons (adults and children) staying at the Property must not exceed the maximum number of sleeping accomodations indicated in the booking confirmation and reservation voucher, unless specifically authorised in writing. Exceeding this number may invalidate any insurance policy on the Property. Entry or access to the Property may be refused or limited whereas the number of guests exceeds the stated requirement.
CHECK IN/CHECK OUT
Clients are expected to arrive at the property between 14:00 pm and 21:00pm on the first day of the rental period. If a different arrival time is anticipated, notification must be received in writing at email@example.com well in advance, or the owner/caretaker may not be available to allow entry. If an unforeseen delay should occur and the arrival would be after 23:00, every effort should be made to contact the owner/caretaker at the telephone number provided in the Accommodation Voucher.
Upon arrival, clients should inspect the property with the owner/caretaker and ensure that they fully understand the use of any appliances, equipment and utilities.
Clients are expected to vacate the property latest at 12:00 noon on the final day of the rental period. The owner/caretaker will arrive at the villa before then for an inspection of the property and presentation of the Final Bill. Should departure be prior to 12:00 noon, clients are requested to notify the owner/caretaker at the beginning of the rental period in order to arrange an alternative time for the property inspection.
The cost of electricity, water, cleaning, garden supplies and local taxes are included in rental rates. There are generally no additional costs, surcharges, taxes, staff salaries, or management fees above the price quoted unless otherwise stated in the property description, the Guest booking confirmation or reservation voucher.
Confirmation details, the Property address, contact details of the Owner or Owner’s Representative, transfer arrangements and directions to the Property will be sent to the Guest in a reservation voucher when 30% down payment is received. This voucher, along with the Guest’s passport, need to be presented upon arrival.
Any cancellation must be made in writing (email to firstname.lastname@example.org). The effective date of cancellation is when the written notification is received by Villa Eleven.
It is strongly recommended that the Guest and all members of the Guest’s party purchase trip cancellation insurance.
DAMAGE OR LOSSES
Any damage or losses caused during the Rental Period, as well as any special cleaning requirements will be the Guest’s responsibility and may be charged to the Guest’s account and deducted from the Guest’s security deposit. In cases of excessive or unacceptable loss or damage at any time during the Rental Period, the Owner or Owner’s Representative may require the Guest and their party, including visitors to vacate the Property immediately, without compensation or refund.
The Property and its facilities are available for the Guest’s full enjoyment during the Rental Period. However the Owner, Owner’s Representative, or other staff and contractors may need to access to the Property from time to time (e.g. for maintenance purposes to the house, garden, utilities and services, or for the purposes of providing additional services requested by the Guest, etc.). The Guest is required to give them reasonable access to the Property for these purposes.
No refunds will be given for cancellations or interruption due to inclement weather or illness. We strongly advise all tenants to consider insurance needs in relation to travel, accident, medical and personal coverage. Villa Eleven cannot accept liability for any accident, injury, loss or damage sustained by tenants. Once you have checked into the property, no refund will be made for early checkouts. If you do not cancel the reservation and do not arrive for your rental period, all monies paid will be forfeited.
The Renter is obliged to advise Villa Eleven at the time of booking if he/she is bringing any pets, and must communicate number and size(s). Pets are admitted only upon approval on booking, and only at certain places. Please let us know that you are looking for a “Pet Friendly” villa when making your reservation. It is compulsory for the Renter to supervise pet(s) within the communal areas of the accommodation. “un-authorized” pets give Villa Eleven the right to terminate guest’s occupancy of the dwelling and reservation. The guests will also forfeit all rent and may be charged a cleaning fee.
Clients are responsible for ensuring that they hold all the proper documentation for their visit to Greece including visas (where applicable) passports, driving licenses, EU health cards, etc.
Villa Eleven recommends that you subscribe an adequate travel insurance, including cover for medical treatment, accidents and repatriation, and holiday cancellation and curtailment. It is your responsibility to arrange, or ensure your party has an appropriate and comprehensive travel insurance, including cover for illness, personal injury and travel delay/cancellation. We assume that such a policy is in force before your arrival to Villa Eleven.

UTILITY USAGE AND ENVIRONMENT
Villa Eleven takes special care to minimise the impact we place onto the environment. We feel it is both ours, and our guests’ responsibility to care for the environment. We therefore ask you to think carefully and be thoughtful about the usage of both water and electricity. The electricity consumption is included in the cost of your holiday rental. Some clients unfortunately leave all lights, fans and the air conditioning running 24 hours per day. If you do this then the cost of a week’s electricity is likely to be 3 to 4 times the level of normal household usage. Air conditioning should never be switched on in rooms with either doors or windows open, (which does not serve the purpose of putting on the air conditioning, and can also lead to breakage of the air conditioning system as it will be over-working trying to cool a room to a desired temperature that it will never be able to reach). Fans should also be switched off when the room is not being used, as should lights and other electrical items.
We thank you in advance for your consideration. It not only helps us to keep our rentals prices as low as possible, it also helps protecting our environment.
Weather conditions can be unpredictable, and can change quickly and significantly. Villa Eleven cannot be made liable for unpleasant or unsuitable weather conditions and no refunds are made for such conditions.
