Terms and Conditions

Booking a Villa is completely different from booking a hotel room. The duration of the booking, payments and cancellations, security etc. are all different, so please do not just tick the box to accept these terms and conditions without reading the following conditions carefully.

Whenever you, “the Guest” make a reservation and book a Mykonos Art Villa “MAV”, a) A rental contract is created between “the Guest” in whose name the booking is made and of course on behalf of all members of his party, and Mykonos Art Villas, “the owner” for the agreed period named “Rental Period” b. You accept the detailed terms & conditions that follow:

 

Payment

When the Guest makes a booking request, the Guest must make the appropriate deposit payment to Mykonos Art Villas within 5 working days of availability confirmation. The following deposit payment must be received by Mykonos Art Villas.

-For rentals beginning more than 60 days after the date of the booking request – a deposit of 50% of the total rental amount is payable

-For rentals beginning 60 days or less after the date of the booking request – the total rental amount is payable as a deposit

-If the required deposit payment is not received within the 2 working day period, Mykonos Art Villas reserves the right to void the Guest’s booking request.

-Where a 50% deposit applies to the booking, the Guest must pay the remaining 50% balance not less than 60 days before the scheduled arrival date.

All payments must be made in Euros and must be made in accordance with Mykonos Art Villas’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, Mykonos Art Villas 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.

It also has to be made clear that Mykonos Art Villas can be booked directly thru various on line booking sites, so we do not accept any responsibility or liability for possible online bookings of the property during the above mentioned period of the 2 working days.

 

Additional costs

The cost of the Wi-Fi internet, satellite TV, electricity, water, draining, cleaning, pool and garden maintenance 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 except for those described in the relevant chapter “Extra services upon request (extra costs apply)” of the property description, or unless otherwise stated the Guest booking confirmation voucher. Gratuities for household staff are not necessary.

 

Booking confirmation Voucher

Confirmation details, the Property location (map, address, etc.), contact details of the “Owner” or Owner’s Representative, possible transfer arrangements and directions to the Property will be sent to the Guest in a booking confirmation voucher when full payment is received. This voucher, along with the Guest’s ID card, need to be presented upon arrival.

 

Arrival & Departure times

Security Deposit

Mykonos Art Villas will require a security deposit of 10% of the total cost of the stay, with a minimum of one thousand (1,000) Euros. This amount may be payable directly to Mykonos Art Villas or to our Representative, immediately upon arrival at the Villa. Access to the Villa may be refused if security deposit is not paid in full.

The security deposit will be refunded at the end of the rental period, after deducting the cost of replacement or repair for any loss or damage to the Villa or its surrounds or contents caused during the Rental Period. If this cost cannot be reasonably determined prior to the Guest’s departure, Mykonos Art Villas or our Representative is entitled to withhold a reasonable estimate from the Guest’s security deposit, and will return any balance to the Guest as soon as possible after the actual cost has been determined.
