On the day of departure, the appartment must be vacated by 11.00 am. The appartment must be left swept clean on the day of departure. The dishes, glasses, etc. must be cleaned and put away, the rubbish bins emptied and the refrigerator cleared out.

There are 2 key-free access systems available:

By magnetic cards (2 pieces), which you will receive on the day of arrival. By APP for the smartphone, which you need to download. The landlord then provides the access codes. The magnetic cards must be left in the appartment on the day of departure. In case of loss, the guest will incur additional costs.

§ 6 Holiday apartments

The holiday appartment is handed over by the landlord in a tidy and clean condition with complete inventory. The landlord must be informed immediately of any defects or deficiencies that occur during the rental period. The tenant is liable for any damage caused by him to the rented property, the inventory, e.g. broken tableware, damage to the floor or to the furniture. The inventory is to be treated with care and is only intended to remain in the holiday apartments. The moving of furnishings, especially beds, is prohibited. The tenant is also liable for the fault of his fellow travellers. Damage caused by force majeure is excluded from this. In the event of use of the holiday appartment contrary to the terms of the contract, such as subletting, overcrowding, disturbance of domestic peace, etc., as well as non-payment of the full rent, the contract may be terminated without notice. The rent already paid remains with the landlord. If liability insurance exists, the damage must be reported to the insurance company. The landlord must be informed of the name and address as well as the insurance number of the insurance company.

§ 7 Pets

The accommodation of pets in the holiday appartment is generally permitted at additional cost. Prerequisite is the prior written consent (e.g. by email) of the provider. In the case of an unusual number, exotic or large animals, an additional charge may be made. If animals are accommodated without the prior consent of the provider, the latter may charge a flat rate of 100.00 euros (net).

§ 8 Stay

The holiday appartment may only be used by the persons listed in the booking. Should the appartment be used by more persons than agreed, a separate fee is to be paid for these, which is determined in the rental price.

The tenancy agreement may not be passed on to third parties.

§ 9 Hygiene guidelines

The current statutory hygiene and pandemic guidelines (e.g. covid-19) must be observed. The guest is obliged to inform himself/herself independently about the guidelines applicable at the location.

§ 10 Cancellation of travel

In the event of cancellation of the rental contract, the hirer may be obliged to pay part of the agreed price as compensation. Cancellation must be made in writing. The amount of compensation depends on the time until the day of arrival and may vary depending on the booking portal.

For direct bookings the following applies:

up to 14 days before the day of arrival - free cancellation

up to 7 days before the day of arrival - 50% of the total price (incl. additional services)

We recommend that you take out travel cancellation insurance.

§ 11 Cancellation by the landlord or replacement holiday home

In the event of cancellation on our part, as a result of force majeure or other unforeseeable circumstances (such as in the event of accident or illness on the part of the hosts) as well as other circumstances for which we are not responsible making fulfilment impossible; liability is limited to reimbursement of costs. In the event of justified withdrawal, the customer shall have no claim to compensation - no liability shall be assumed for travel and hotel costs. The landlord may withdraw from the contract after the start of the rental period without notice if the tenant causes lasting disturbance to other tenants despite a warning or behaves in a manner contrary to the contract to such an extent that the immediate cancellation of the rental contract is justified. The landlord is entitled to provide a replacement holiday appartment in the same building of the same size or larger.

§ 12 Liability of the Lessor
