Lemon Grove Villa Booking Terms & Conditions
1.1 These terms and conditions relate to a contract between Lemon Grove Villa owner ( hereafter referred to as We) and the Villa guest ( hereafter referred to as the Client/ You).
1.2 All bookings accepted by Lemon Grove Villa are subject to these terms and conditions.
1.3 All prices stated are in UK Pounds Sterling.
2 Booking procedure and payment terms
2.1 A deposit of 25% will be required to secure your dates. As soon as your deposit is received your booking will be confirmed in writing.
2.2 The rental balance (to include the security deposit) will be due 8 weeks before your departure date. If your departure date is less than 8 weeks away at the time of booking, then the full rental balance in cleared funds by bank transfer will be due as soon as your booking has been confirmed.
2.3 Your payment includes a security deposit of £250.
This sum will be included in the final balance invoice and is fully refundable should the owners not incur any costs arising from breakage loss or damage. The party leader agrees to accept full and personal liability for all loss or damage caused by any member of their party during the occupation of the property and confirms that the full cost of repair or replacement will be covered. Minor breakages such as crockery or glassware will inevitably occur at times, and will only be chargeable at the discretion of the property owner.
The property manager will point out any known damage to the property on arrival. If there are any other additional items, they must be brought to the attention of the manager immediately. If there is any damage to the villa discovered after your departure, then unfortunately you will be liable for the cost of replacement/repair.

3.6 If we cancel or amend your Booking with the exception of 3.3, 3.4, 3.5
We would not expect to have to make any changes to your booking once it is agreed between you and us, but sometimes problems occur and we do have to make alterations or, very occasionally cancel bookings. If this does happen, we will contact you as soon as is reasonably practical and inform you of the cancellation or the change to your booking. If we cancel your booking, we will refund you any fees you have already paid to us. However, we will not be liable to refund you for any fees you may have paid to any third party in connection with your holiday (including, without limitation, fees for travel, entertainment, activities, or insurance).
3.7 Cancellation due to government restrictions.
If, 72 hours prior to departure, you are unable to travel because the Government (either from your home country or Cyprus) rules say you should not travel*, then we will cancel the booking and offer alternative dates from the booked date to 18 months in the future from the booked date. This is subject to a £50 administration fee. Any monies paid to date will be carried forward in full. If the new booking is more expensive than the original then the difference will be payable by you. If the new booking is cheaper than the original then the difference will be payable by us. Should no available dates be suitable for you then the booking will be cancelled and the charges in 3.6 will apply based on the original booked dates.
*Government guidelines can sometimes be difficult to interpret. If you wish to cancel your booking due to government guidelines, please contact us as soon as possible to discuss the options.
4.1 The accommodation provided is only for the use of persons named by the client on the booking form, subletting, sharing or assigning is prohibited.

5 Neighbourly conduct
5.1 Whilst on holiday, you will be staying in a privately owned villa on a private residential estate. Please ensure that you act in a neighbourly and courteous manner towards your neighbours, who may not be on holiday. We do not wish to curtail your enjoyment in any way; we do request that noise be kept to a minimum during the early mornings and late evenings, particularly around the patio and pool. It is courteous to restrict pool usage to between the hours of 8.00am and 10pm.
- Every effort has been made to ensure that you have an enjoyable and memorable holiday. If, however, you have any cause for complaint or dissatisfaction, it is important that you contact the villa manager immediately, so that remedial action is taken as soon as possible. It is often extremely difficult (and sometimes impossible) to resolve problems properly unless we are promptly notified. Discussion of any criticisms with us whilst you are in residence at the Property will usually enable any shortcomings to be rectified straightaway. In particular, complaints of a transient nature (for example, regarding preparation of the Property) cannot be investigated unless registered whilst you are in residence at the Property. If any complaint cannot be resolved during your holiday, you must write to us or email us with full details within 28 days of the end of your booking. Details of how to contact the management company will be found in the villa and in communication with the owner.
