- The villa is checked prior to your arrival and after your departure and any faults are reported to the management.
- We reserve the right to retain the security deposit either in part or in full to cover damage, theft or breakages. This may also include additional cleaning costs for spills, stains, etc. Receipts for repairs/replacements will be provided in the unlikely event that such retention of the security deposit is required.
