Security Deposits


We understand that accidents do happen, but we do ask that you inform our Management Company of any defects, or breakages as soon as possible and pay for the repair or replacement so that neither you nor the following guests are inconvenienced.

A returnable security deposit of 300(US$400) in the form of a credit card/cash or cheque is required when you make your final payment. This charge will be held to cover or part cover any breakages, excess cleaning costs or damage to the property. The Owners, less any deductions to cover the cost of replacement or repair, will refund this deposit within 35 days of the end of the rental period subject to inspection.

Our local Management Company checks the home before your arrival, and again after your departure. The Owners are advised of any damage, breakages or faults, this may include additional cleaning costs for removal of stains due to spillage.

In the event of any excess damage of any kind to the property, or excess cleaning costs or excessive use of electricity (e.g. leaving external doors open with the Air Conditioning on) which exceed the security deposit, the signatory will be held responsible for the additional costs, this amount will be invoiced and payable in full immediately.

We reserve the right to retain the security deposit (either in part or full) to cover damage or non return of keys. Receipts for repairs/replacement will be provided in the unlikely event that such retention is necessary.
