It is the responsibility of all guests and members of their party to be familiar with all policies pertaining to rental.
The following terms and conditions are incorporated in and form part of any agreement you may make for the rental of a property (“the villa”) managed or listed with the Company.  No amendments to or deletions from these terms shall be valid unless expressly accepted and confirmed in writing.

2. THE AGENT

Agreements for the use of the villa are made between the Client and the Owner. The Company acts as an Agent for the Owner in making arrangements for the rental of the villa and all and any services that might, from time to time, be agreed to be provided by the Owner. With regard to ancillary services, agreements shall be made between the Client and the provider of the said services upon such terms as shall be agreed between them.

The terms and conditions for the use of the villa shall be as contained in:

  1. The Confirmation from the company accepting the booking;

  3. These Booking Terms & Conditions

together called ‘The Agreement”.  The Agreement shall become binding when the booking form is executed by the Client or when the Company and/or the Owner receives the rental deposit, hereinafter mentioned, whichever occurs first.


4. RENTER REQUIREMENTS

For legal and accounting purposes, the person placing the reservation must be the same as the credit/debit card holder. This person is considered to be the Client. All other persons involved with the rental are considered to be the Guest’s invitees, and all discussion regarding reservation, cancellation, and damage policies will be discussed with the Client and not the Client’s invitees.


5. DEPOSITS AND PAYMENTS
 

5.1 For Stays up to 90 days: Payment by the Client to the Company of a deposit equal to 50% of the total rental fee is required to confirm a booking and payment of the remaining 50% is required 30 days prior to the Client’s arrival except in the case of Christmas where the balance is due 60 days prior to arrival. For bookings in excess of 28 days special terms may apply. 

5.2 For Stays over 90 days: 
Payment by the Client to the Company of a deposit equal to the first month (prorated on calendar month), last month (one full month's rent) and security deposit is required to confirm a booking. Each subsequent month will be payable monthly in advance.

 

Payment may be made by Wire transfer, International money order or Credit Card.

6. CANCELLATION & REFUND POLICY

We reserve the right to cancel the booking and the deposit is forfeited if the balance of rental is not paid in accordance with Clause 5 above.

For cancellation unrelated to COVID-19:

    1. If the Client cancels any booking for accommodation made outside of the Christmas- New Year Period at least thirty (30) days prior to arrival, the Company will refund the deposits less 10% of the total rental fee or the Client may opt for a full credit towards a future stay in the same villa within 12 months of the original stay date without any penalty.
    2. In the case of bookings for accommodation within the Christmas-New Year Period (together, “the Non-Refundable Period”), all payments are non-refundable except in cases that qualify for flexible cancellation as outlined in part d below.
    3. If the Client cancels any booking within thirty (30) days of arrival, all payments are forfeited, except in cases that qualify for flexible cancellation as outlined in part d below.
For cancellation related to COVID-19 that prevents the Client from legally traveling to Barbados due to no fault of their own:
    1. The client will be granted a credit for a stay in the same property to be used within 12 months provided one of the below conditions apply. Flexibility will not be granted more than 30 days prior to arrival as circumstances are changing rapidly:
      1. Where Barbados imposes mandatory quarantine on persons arriving from the Client's country of origin that was not in place at the time of booking.
      2. Where Barbados refuses entry of the Client due to country of origin, residence or recent travel to a particular destination for reasons related to COVID-19 that were not in place at time of booking or with adequate notice for preventing restricted travel history.
      3. Where the appropriate Foreign Office issues a specific travel ban to or from Barbados that was not in place at time of booking that prevents the Client from legally traveling to Barbados (whether due to restrictions on incoming or outgoing flights, or other such reasons related to COVID-19). For the avoidance of doubt, this does not include travel advisories which against travel but do not restrict travel to Barbados.
    2. In the case where the Client contracts COVID-19 thereby preventing them from traveling, BSL will extend 50% of the total paid as credit for a future stay for up to 12 months of the original stay in the same property subject to prevailing rates for the rescheduled dates on presentation of a Medical Certificate confirming diagnosis, and confirmation that the Guest had travel insurance and that such travel insurance has explicitly declined to cover costs associated with the accommodation. Any portion of the Booking Fee attributable to any unused portion of the Services, including unused accommodation at the relevant property shall not be refunded by BSL. Rebooking will be subject to prevailing rates for rescheduled dates.
    3. In all cases, the Company retains the right to give the Client fourteen (14) days (the “Notification Period”) notice in writing of any change to cancellation and refund terms at which time the Client may exercise their right to cancel under the original booking terms. Failure to notify the Company in writing of a decision to cancel within the Notification Period, shall be deemed acceptance of the new terms. Such changes will only be made if the situation with regard to the worldwide pandemic improves, Foreign Commonwealth Office and Centers for Disease Control worldwide travel advisories are removed and other pandemic related restrictions on travel are substantially changed.

Special conditions may apply as discussed with your rental agent for bookings in excess of 28-days.  

 

There shall be no compensation or refund of the deposits and/or Booking Fees paid for any action taken by the Company and/or the Owner or their delegate under clauses 13 to 14 hereof.
 

7. SECURITY DEPOSITS

The Client is required to pay a Security Deposit 7 days prior to arrival at the villa. The precise amount of the security deposit shall be stipulated in the Confirmation from the Company accepting the booking. Any security deposit shall be held by the Company, as security for any loss or damage occasioned by the Client or its guests, and for miscellaneous charges that remain outstanding after departure. Any damages caused by the Guest or any additional charges such as concierge, incurred by the Guest will be charged to the Credit Card presented or against the funds held as security and an invoice will be sent to the Guest. Subject to it being established that there are no damages or outstanding charges the balance shall be refunded to the Client no later than 30 days after departure. The Company accepts no responsibility for any bank charges or currency exchange fluctuations incurred on refund of the Security Deposit.

 

8. EXCEPTIONS

8.1 If for any reason other than acts of neglect or default on the part of the Owner, the Client refuses, or is unable to use the villa in accordance with the terms of the Arrangement, the full rental fee shall be retained by the Owner.

 

8.2 In the unlikely event that accommodation contracted for is not available, the Company will use their best endeavours to relocate the Client to similar or better accommodation (“the alternative accommodation”).

 

Where the Client accepts the alternative accommodation and the Booking Fee for the alternative accommodation is less than the original Booking Fee, the Client will receive a refund of the difference from the Company and/or the Owner. Where the Booking Fee is more than the original Booking Fee the difference will be due within thirty days of the offer of the alternative accommodation or the day preceding the Non-Refundable Period (as defined by clause 8 hereof), whichever is later.

 

Where the Client declines to accept the alternative accommodation, the rental deposit and Booking Fees, if any, will be refunded but the Company and/or the Owner will not meet any costs or expenses the Client and/or Guest(s) may have incurred as a result of the cancellation or pay any compensation.

 

8.3 Where the Company and/or the Owner must wholly or partially cancel a Client’s rental reservation as a result of “force majeure”, that is any occurrence outside its control and which could not have been avoided with all due care, including but not limited to war or threat or war, riots, civil strife, terrorist activity, natural or nuclear disaster, government action, adverse weather conditions, fire, earthquake, flood and other similar events out of the Company’s control, the Company and/or the Owner will make no refund, nor meet any costs or expenses the Client and/or the Guest(s) may incur as a result or pay any compensation.

 

8.4 The Company reserves the right, in its sole opinion and without reason to terminate any booking. In such a circumstance the Company will refund the rental deposit and any Booking Fees so paid but will not be liable to make alternative arrangements for other accommodation nor will it cover any costs, which the Client and/or the Guest(s) may incur or pay any compensation.

 

 

9. GUEST INFORMATION

Provision of the following information on all persons who will occupy the accommodation is critical to allow us to prepare the home accordingly and to ensure we are in compliance with local regulations.

8.4 The Company reserves the right, in its sole opinion and without reason to terminate any booking. In such a circumstance the Company will refund the rental deposit and any Booking Fees so paid but will not be liable to make alternative arrangements for other accommodation nor will it cover any costs, which the Client and/or the Guest(s) may incur or pay any compensation.

 

 

9. GUEST INFORMATION

Provision of the following information on all persons who will occupy the accommodation is critical to allow us to prepare the home accordingly and to ensure we are in compliance with local regulations. Most importantly, however, knowing who will be arriving and when will help us ensure we are prepared for your arrival and you start your holiday right and advise you appropriately on the protocols related to your arrival where applicable. The following information must be forwarded to the Company no later than at the time of payment of the balance of the reservation for each person:

  1. First and Last Names

  5. Any information that would possibly indicate that the Guests, any one of them, would be unfit to occupy the villa or would be likely to cause a disturbance to other guests or damage to the villa
  6. Allergies of the Guests, if any.

Failure to provide such information 30 days prior to arrival (or at time of booking where the booking is made less than 30 days in advance) may result in the cancellation of the booking without refund.

 

All special requests, including food requirements and preferences, if any, must be provided by the Client no later than 14 days prior to arrival. The Company will not be obliged to accommodate special requests not made by the stated deadline although will make its best efforts to accommodate where possible.
