1. Scope

1.1 These General Terms and Conditions apply to contracts for the temporary rental of holiday apartments for accommodation as well as all other services and deliveries provided by the Landlord to the tenant.

1.2 The subletting or further leasing of the rented holiday apartment as well as its use for purposes other than accommodation require the prior written consent of the Landlord.

2. Booking/Booking Confirmation

Bookings for the holiday apartments are made via the booking system on the website. The reservation for the holiday apartment is legally binding upon completion of the booking process and receipt of the booking confirmation or after payment. The tenant agrees to the General Terms and Conditions and the house rules of the Landlord by making a booking.

3. Payment Terms

A deposit of 20% of the total amount is to be transferred to the Landlord’s account within 10 days of receiving the invoice. The remaining balance must be paid before arrival or in cash upon arrival. For short-term bookings, the total price is due immediately upon receipt of the invoice/booking confirmation. In case of payment default, the guest will first receive a payment reminder. For each subsequent reminder after default, a fee of 15.00 EUR will be charged. Transaction fees (e.g., for international transfers) are to be borne by the tenant. Only payments via bank transfer are accepted. Cash payments on-site are possible by prior arrangement. Payments by EC or credit cards, or checks, are not accepted.

4. Arrival/Departure

The holiday apartment is available from 3:00 PM on the day of arrival or by arrangement. The keys will be handed over on-site. On the day of departure, the holiday apartment must be vacated by 10:00 AM or as agreed. The Landlord reserves the right to charge for departures delayed by more than 60 minutes.

5. Stay

5.1 The use of the holiday apartment is reserved for the guests indicated to the Landlord at the time of booking. If the property is used by more persons than agreed, a separate fee according to the price list is payable for them. Subletting and transfer of the apartment to third parties are not permitted. The rental contract must not be passed on to third parties.

5.2 In case of violations of the General Terms and Conditions or the house rules, the Landlord is entitled to terminate the rental agreement immediately and without notice. There is no legal claim to a refund of the rental price or compensation.

6. Condition of the Property

The holiday apartment is handed over by the Landlord in a cleaned condition. Should there be any defects or occur during the rental period, the Landlord must be informed immediately. The tenant is liable for any damage caused to the rental property and inventory. If the property key is lost, the Landlord reserves the right to replace the locking system and charge the tenant for the costs incurred. The inventory must be treated appropriately and is intended only for use in the holiday apartments. Moving furniture, especially beds, is prohibited. In case of non-contractual use of the holiday apartment, such as subletting, over-occupancy, disturbance of the peace, or non-payment of the full rental price, the Landlord may terminate the contract without notice. Any payments already made by the tenant will remain with the Landlord in this case. If the tenant wishes to use their liability insurance for potential damage, the Landlord must be informed with the name and address, as well as the insurance number of the insurance company.

7. Pets

Bringing pets of any kind is only allowed by arrangement. In case of non-compliance, the Landlord reserves the right to terminate the rental agreement without notice and to have a professional cleaning carried out at the tenant’s expense.

8. Cancellation by the Tenant

In case of cancellation of the rental contract, the tenant is obliged to pay a part of the agreed price as compensation. Cancellation must be made in writing. The amount of compensation depends on the time until the arrival day and is as follows:

  • 7–28 days before the arrival day: 50% of the agreed rental price
  • 0–6 days before the arrival day or in case of no-show: 90% of the agreed rental price

9. Cancellation by the Landlord

The Landlord reserves the right to withdraw from the rental contract in cases of force majeure or other unforeseeable circumstances that make the fulfillment of the contract impossible. In this case, the liability is limited to the refund of the rental price. In the event of justified withdrawal, the tenant has no claim for damages. Liability for travel and hotel costs is excluded.

10. Liability of the Landlord

The Landlord is liable within the scope of the duty of care of a prudent businessman for the proper provision of the rental property. Liability for possible failures or disruptions in the water or electricity supply as well as events and consequences due to force majeure is excluded. The Landlord is only liable for items brought in by the guest within the framework of the statutory provisions.

11. Wi-Fi Usage

11.1 The Landlord maintains an internet connection via Wi-Fi in the holiday property. The tenant receives the access information from the Landlord upon arrival. The Landlord allows the tenant to use the Wi-Fi connection for the duration of their stay in the rental property.

11.2 If the Landlord becomes aware of illegal use of the Wi-Fi connection (file sharing, pornography, etc.) by the tenant, the tenant’s access will be immediately revoked, and the authorities will be informed of the misuse.

11.3 The Landlord is not liable to the tenant for any disruptions to the Wi-Fi connection. The Landlord reserves the right to restrict the tenant’s usage of the Wi-Fi connection at any time.

11.4 The Landlord assumes no liability for any damage (malware, etc.) resulting from the use of the Wi-Fi connection. The tenant is responsible for the security of their data.

11.5 If the tenant incurs any costs through the use of the Wi-Fi (e.g., paid services), the tenant is fully responsible for these costs.

12. Written Form

Any agreements deviating from these General Terms and Conditions must be in writing. No oral agreements have been made.

13. Severability Clause

Should one or more provisions of these General Terms and Conditions become invalid, the validity of the remaining provisions shall not be affected. The invalid provision is to be replaced by a valid one that comes closest to the economic purpose of the invalid provision.
