Rental Agreement

The rental agreement is a contract between the owners and landlords of the house (hereinafter’landlords’), and  a client (hereinafter “tenants”).
The rent is paid directly to the landlords.
They are also the first point of contact for any questions or problems, and are therefore accessible via email address or telephone number.

1. Rental

1.1 The rental agreement is concluded after written confirmation of the landlord and a payment of 25% of the rent is made by the tenant, within seven days after this confirmation. Paying the rent means that you have taken knowledge and agree with the general conditions set out below. If the deposit is not paid on time the reservation will be nullified.

1.2 Within five (5) weeks before the start of the stay, the remaining amount must be in possession of the owner. If not paid on time, the rental agreement can be canceled by the landlord and the deposit may not be refunded, please see also our cancellation policy.

1.3 For bookings within five (5) weeks before the start of the rental period, the entire rental fee must be paid at once.
