All clients will be asked to sign a Waiver of Liability and a credit card authorization form, which will allow the Agency to charge the card any charges that clients incur while at the villa In the case of last minute bookings, where is it impractical or very difficult for the hirer to make a deposit by TT, we will accept cash (2003 or newer, unmarked USD banknotes – F series or newer only) on arrival. However, a credit card authorization form will need to be used to ensure deposit requirements are met. This form will need to be accompanied by photocopies of both sides of the credit card, a photocopy of holder’s passport, and written authorization.

CHANGES TO BOOKINGS

PROVISIONS AND STAFF
All villas we represent have a minimum of two domestic household staff. All our properties are fully equipped with bed linens, towels, cooking utensils etc.
Our policy for bookings in which the value of the villa rental is over US$1,000 is to provide complimentary airport pickups / drop offs for our guests. Under that value we unfortunately have to charge for this service.
We strongly recommend the use of a car and driver during your stay (please see reasons outlined in transportation guidelines). If you don’t rent a car and driver for the duration of your booking, you will be charged US$20 to US$25 (depending on area) for each airport transfer (pickups / drop offs, maximum 4 PAX each).
EVENTS AND PARTIES
Normal bookings are for vacation purposes and special permissions must be obtained for functions where the number of people in attendance exceeds 150% of the capacity of the villa. Also clients should be aware that these are private villas located in residential neighbourhoods and, as such, not all functions or events can necessarily be accommodated. Much depends on the vagaries of the neighbourhood’s residents.
If you are planning to hold an event such as a wedding or any large congregation of people at your villa it would be best to bring this to the villa manager attention as soon as possible.
Please be aware that normally the villa manager will not accept a booking involving a function without prior confirmation that a function coordinator has been employed..
The villa manager have rules governing villa usage for events and parties and a surcharge of up to the equivalent of a night’s rental price is applicable, in addition to a local community (‘Banjar’) fee.
DAMAGE OR LOSSES
The hirer is responsible for leaving the property in good order and in a clean condition. The hirer further undertakes to pay for any damages or losses incurred during occupation. The villa manager reserves the right to repossess the property if the hirer or a member of the party has caused excessive damage.
NUMBERS IN PARTY / SUITABILITY
The numbers of persons occupying a property must not exceed the maximum number stated in the booking confirmation. The villa manager reserves the right to refuse any booking, which, in its opinion, is unsuitable for the property concerned.
The villa manager will not accept responsibility for any injury, sickness, loss, damage, additional expense or inconvenience, directly or indirectly caused by or arising out of the use of the property, plumbing, gas, electrical or otherwise, and exceptional weather conditions. Further, no responsibility is accepted for the personal belongings, car, and its contents of the hirer or any member of the party during the holiday.
If the hirer considers that he/she has cause for complaint concerning a property, the matter should be taken up with the Villa Manager In such cases, if The villa manager considers the complaint valid, a partial refund may be offered. This will have to be discussed and approved by the relevant villa owner and may take several weeks to finalize. No liability shall arise beyond the refund of the monies paid. The owner will not entertain claims lodged by the hirer upon departure or after return home when it is no longer possible to investigate the complaint effectively.
