PAYMENT

  • Together with your completed booking form, a non- refundable deposit of $200 per week is due within 7 days of your provisional booking. 

  • Upon receipt of your deposit we will send you confirmation. 

  • Payment of the balance is due 8 weeks prior to your arrival date. Assuming receipt of the same, we will send out directions and lock box number to your villa a week prior to your arrival. 

  • Failure to pay final balance within 8 weeks prior to your arrival may lead to cancellation of your reserved property and loss of deposit. 

PAYMENT BY CREDIT CARD

  • All payments made by credit card (excludes AMEX - see below) will incur an additional 4% charge. This is to cover the fees imposed on Homes of America by the credit card companies.

  • All payments made by American Express will incur an additional 5% charge.

  • This additional charge can be avoided by making the payment of your balance by cheque.

SECURITY DEPOSIT

  • The client is solely responsible for any damage or breakages that may be caused to the property or its contents during your stay.

  • This deposit will be repaid to your party by check as soon as the management company has reported no damage and that you have returned the keys. 

  • The Security deposits will be returned within 30 days of your return departure date once the management company has reported no damage and that you have returned the keys. Security deposits can be mailed back in the form of a US dollar check, alternatively we can credit back to your card at a 4% bank processing charge. This can be arranged via our office.

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 / replacements will be provided in the unlikely event that such retention of the security deposit is necessary, plus further documentation or photographs will be provided if requested. 

  • We reserve the right to pursue a guest for recompense for any and all damages caused which may exceed the value of the security deposit and will require payment within 14 days of being served notice of this.

  • If we do not receive the payment we will endeavor to contact the guest but if we receive no payment or communication, then unfortunately we reserve the right to cancel the booking and retain the deposit. 

  • If you do have a problem, PLEASE contact us as soon as possible to discuss the matter.

In the event of this happening the management company will always seek to relocate your booking to a villa of a similar or superior standard.
