The Terms of Service and Rental have been translated from German to English to the best of our knowledge. If there are any uncertainties, please do not hesitate to contact us. Please note that only the German version is legally valid.

Each customer or tenant already accepts the following conditions with the reservation request for him/herself, as well as also for the persons and guests who are registered and accompanying him / her. The tenant is also liable for his / her fellow travellers. By referring to tenant hereafter, we speak about the tenant, his/her fellow travellers and/or other guests.
For bookings that were not made through our websites but through other portals (e.g. AirBnB, …) our terms and conditions apply additionally. For individual overlapping points / paragraphs, those of the utilized booking portal applies.
2. Booking, contractual relationships, costs and terms of payment
You can make your reservation by phone, in writing or online via one of our homepages (or via various booking portals such as AirBnB, …) for one of our holiday properties. You will receive a written confirmation immediately, if the requested property is free for rental. The tenant confirms the reservation with paying 50% or 100% of the rental amount by bank transfer within 10 days after receiving the reservation confirmation. The eventually remaining balance must be paid 30 days before arrival at the latest. For bookings less than 30 days before the check-in date, the total rental sum must be transferred immediately. Any payments have to be transferred on the lessor’s account in time and free of charge. The contract between tenant and lessor is concluded and legally valid with the transmission of the reservation confirmation. If the content of the submitted reservation confirmation deviates from other sources (such as the description of the accommodation on the homepage, etc.), the tenant concludes the contract with his down payment and accepts the contract on the basis of the reservation confirmation with the varied conditions.If no down payment is made in the specified amount within 10 days, the lessor sees the reservation as obsolete.If the tenant gets in arrears with his payment(s), the lessor is entitled to terminate the contract without further notice, to charge cancellation fees and to rent the property to someone else. The lessor charges for each reservation a non-refundable processing fee of 40.00 Euros.
3. Services and prices
The prices shown are daily prices for the use of the entire holiday property including furniture, the normal energy consumption and all commodities for the specified number of persons booked.
The minimum rental period is normally seven nights, unless otherwise agreed and confirmed in the reservation confirmation.Arrival and departure are usually on Saturday, unless otherwise agreed and confirmed in the reservation confirmation. The price information explicitly states which additional services are included and which are not – such as towels, bed linen, final cleaning, pets, extra beds / cribs and overnight stay (local tax) etc. Extra Services and their costs are stated separately. These amounts will be invoiced together with the rental price. Not included in the rental price and payable in cash on the spot – if available – are additional services requested by the customer such as additional cleaning, extra linen, etc. All prices quoted are gross prices.
4. Type of use or rental purpose
The usage of the apartment by the tenant and his registered guests is limited to private purposes (use of a holiday apartment) only. Sub-letting is not allowed. Any commercial use is prohibited. Any events, parties, celebrations, etc. are prohibited. Furthermore, the house rules must be observed. Any exceptions require the written confirmation of the lessor.
5. Changes in Performance & Price
The description of the objects and the price calculation have been made with great care. It may happen that there are price or performance changes. If this is the case, we will inform you with the booking at the latest. If there are any differences between the homepage, the offer and the reservation confirmation, the agreements on the reservation confirmation apply. The correction of obvious errors, e.g. due to printing and calculation errors, remains reserved. If significant changes in service occur after the conclusion of the contract, you can withdraw from the contract within five days of receiving the notification. Already made payments are refunded. Price changes up to 30 days before arrival are expressly reserved for the following reasons: Increase or introduction of duties and taxes on certain services, change of exchange rates after conclusion of the contract, etc.
6. Arrival and departure, shortening or extension of the stay
The tenant is obliged to communicate his arrival. The check-in period should take place between 4pm (16:00) and at the latest 6pm (18:00), the check-out is at 10am (10:00) at the latest. If the tenant arrives later than 6 pm, the lessor must be informed as soon as possible and check, if a later check in is possible (the addresses and contact numbers can be found in the reservation confirmation). In certain situations, an earlier or later check-in is possible, after written arrangement with the lessor. The lessor hands over the keys on the day of arrival, as agreed on the telephone and/or confirmed in writing.
If the tenant will not be able to meet the check-in deadline (as a result of traffic jam, weather conditions, illness, accident, etc.) and cannot take over the object as planned, the entire rental price will be charged. The same applies if the tenant leaves the property earlier. If the tenant wants to extend the stay, we advise to contact the lessor as soon as possible, if the stay can be extended.
7. Withdrawal from the contract by the tenant
