Such written and signed agreement will then supersede our hereunder stated general terms and conditions:

SECTION A: General Terms and Conditions for Vacation Rental Accommodations.

1. AGREEMENT: Prestige Realty, Inc. (“PRESTIGE”, “we”, “us”), an agent for the Owner of the Accommodation, and Guest (“you”) agree as follows: Guest is an adult who is not less than 23 years of age and who will be an occupant of the chosen Accommodation (“Unit”) during the entire reserved period as indicated in the Reservation Confirmation. Other occupants will be family members, friends, responsible adults or children under direct adult supervision. Use of the premises will be denied to persons not falling within the foregoing categories or if the party count surpasses the stipulated maximum occupancy, and as a result they would have to vacate the Accommodation without any refund. Any complaints from neighbors regarding excessive noise or other nuisances may be cause for immediate termination of the rental agreement and forfeiture of the guest’s security deposit and rents.

2. PAYMENT & SECURITY DEPOSIT: Payment is preferred through secure online credit card payment (either via our Online Booking feature or via a Payment Link emailed to Guest), bank wire transfer or any other form of payment method offered by Guest’s chosen Third Party online booking engine, and is due upon reservation and/or as per our standard Payment Schedule, if any. If any other than the aforementioned form of payment methods or payment schedule is agreed with Guest, such must be separately agreed and accepted in writing by both parties. If secure online credit card payment  via Online Booking is preferred by Guest, Guest must follow the instructions of the Instant Booking Payment page on our website to fulfill such payment online. If secure online credit card payment via Payment Link is preferred by Guest, Guest must follow the instructions of the online Payment Link provided by us via email to fulfill such payment online. If bank wire transfer is preferred by Guest, Guest will receive an email with our bank’s wire instructions to fulfill such payment through your bank. Your full payment or Reservation Deposit payment secures your reservation. Please read the cancellation policy in section 3 below. Upon his/her arrival at the Accommodation’s location, the Guest and cardholder will also be required to sign a credit card voucher, as a ‘Security Deposit’. For the Security Deposit only, PRESTIGE will take and hold Guest’s credit card information on file. Provided that real and personal property are in the same condition as when occupancy commenced and all terms of this agreement are met, Guest’s credit card on file will not be additionally charged. Guest is liable for all replacements and repairs that are outside what is considered normal wear and tear and Guest hereby authorizes PRESTIGE to charge the Guest’s credit card on file to cover said costs. If cost of replacement, repairs and/or other Guest’s charges in accordance with this agreement exceeds the Guest’s credit card limit, Guest agrees to pay the difference to PRESTIGE. In the event of a dispute concerning a charge, arguments are to be heard in the jurisdiction where the Accommodation exists.

3. CANCELLATION: RESERVATIONS ARE CONSIDERED BOOKED WHEN THE GUEST’S PAYMENT VIA CREDIT CARD, THROUGH BANK WIRE TRANSFER OR VIA ANY OTHER FORM OF PAYMENT METHOD, IS RECEIVED. A reservation may be cancelled by PRESTIGE or Guest as follows:

(a) PRESTIGE may cancel a reservation ONLY in the event that Guest has chosen to pay according to a Payment Schedule and despite a previous reminder email Guest thereby fails to comply with a payment within 48 hours after its due date. Guest will then be emailed by PRESTIGE a 24-hour notice of cancellation, but nonetheless be given the opportunity to reverse the cancellation by still complying with the due payment within such 24 hours.

(b) Guest may cancel a reservation at any moment in time. To cancel this reservation, Guest must send us a written notice of cancellation which should be RECEIVED BY PRESTIGE PREFERABLY MORE THAN 45 RESPECTIVELY 15 DAYS PRIOR TO YOUR CHECK-IN (=ARRIVAL) DATE.

REFUNDS: The Reservation Confirmation email from PRESTIGE indicates the final Total Amount payable for the reservation. In case of a cancellation as per above, PRESTIGE will refund the sums you have paid, less a cancellation fee equal to: (a) 20% of the Total Amount for cancellations received more than 45 days prior to check-in date or (b) 50% of the Total Amount for cancellations received between 45 and 15 days prior to check-in date. If your notice of cancellation is RECEIVED LESS THAN 15 DAYS PRIOR TO YOUR CHECK-IN DATE, Guest will forfeit all sums paid unless PRESTIGE is able to re-rent the Accommodation to someone else, at the same rate for the same period. In the event the Accommodation is re-rented for same or less than the Total Amount, PRESTIGE will refund the sums you have paid less an amount equal to 50% of the Total Amount and less any amount necessary to make full payment to the Owner of the Accommodation.  Considering the above cancellation and refund policy, Prestige highly recommends Guest to seek and acquire trip or travel insurance that covers the respective cancellation fee for an eventual cancellation of a booked reservation.

4. PETS: Pets are not allowed in, at, or around our rental properties. Absolutely no cats, birds, dogs or exotic animals are allowed in any areas of the premises.

5. SMOKING: Smoking is not allowed inside any of our rental properties. Smoking is however allowed on the balcony/terraces of our rental properties, or on the exterior areas of the complex.

6. CHECK-IN: Check in time is 4:00 p.m. on your day of arrival. Keys will not be handed over with a balance owing or without a signed rental agreement. We request you to always call-in your expected arrival time, especially if you are going to be arriving late, in order for us to make appropriate check-in arrangements.

7. CHECK-OUT: Check out time is 11:00 a.m. on your day of departure. A $50.00 fee will be charged for each 1/2 hour past the required checkout time, as we often have guests leaving and arriving the same day leaving the cleaning services a small amount of time to clean. $25.00 per item fee will be charged for each lost key. Each rental unit has a check-out procedure posted inside of the unit. Please read, and follow the check out directions prior to departure

8. CLEANING: The Accommodation will be inspected, sanitized and cleaned before your arrival, during the complementary weekly cleaning and after your departure. The weekly cleaning is included in your rental fee for all stays over 7 nights. YOU ARE REQUIRED to leave the Accommodation in the same general condition that you received it by making sure dishes are washed and put away, bed linens are stripped, used towels are put near washer/dryer and the unit is generally picked up and ready to be swept, mopped, dusted and sanitized. Guest has the option to request additional (more frequent) cleaning services at own cost, via the offices of Prestige. If additional cleaning is required upon departure, appropriate expenses may be charged at the highest rate of $50.00 per hour, which includes professional freshening from undesired cigar/cigarette smoke or smell. REMEMBER: NO SMOKING inside the Accommodation!

9. TELEPHONES & INTERNET SERVICE: Your Accommodation may or may not be equipped with a telephone to be used free of charge for local calls only. YOU MUST USE A CALLING CARD OR CALL COLLECT WHEN MAKING LONG DISTANCE TELEPHONE CALLS; alternatively, a rental mobile phone with much lower long-distance call rates can be arranged for the Guest. Should long-distance calls inadvertently be charged to the Owner of the Accommodation, Guest agrees to pay for calls plus a $25.00 processing fee, and hereby authorizes PRESTIGE to charge such amount to Guest’s credit card on file pursuant to article 2 here above. Your unit is provided with a free unlimited usage of broadband wireless internet service. PRESTIGE is not responsible for the operation or maintenance of DSL or other high speed internet services, but shall assist the Guest in the event of any malfunction.

10. WHAT WE SUPPLY: The Accommodation is, unless otherwise noted on our website, equipped and set up as a fully furnished property that will include bedspreads, linens, blankets, pillows, towels, beach towels, a fully equipped kitchen, TV, furnishings, portable beach chairs. A complementary standard stock of paper products and certain guest supplies (toilet paper rolls, paper towel roll, foils, wraps, garbage bags, etc) are supplied by the Owner of the Accommodation, based on an average week’s use, which stock is not replenished if consumed. Guest is responsible for replacing stocked items for own use as they are consumed; the standard stock of guest supplies will be replenished by PRESTIGE only (a) in the event of a long stay (=longer than a week), during the weekly cleaning service, and (b) in the event the Guest requests and pays for additional or more frequent cleaning services, during such extra cleaning service. We may not have all the items you may be accustomed to having in your home. If there is a special type of item you are accustomed to using, please provide for those items by bringing them with you. Occupancy is based on sleeping capacity; each unit may not have ample dining/living room seating to match bed capacity. You should bring personal items such as bath soap, shampoo and toiletries. Extra towels are always recommended for units with hot tubs or private pools.

11. LIABILITY: A code-lock safety box may be located inside the unit and may be used by the Guest free of charge.

NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN FOR TOO MUCH RAIN, OR LACK OF SUN.

12.

Guests should observe and adhere to all rules and policies as posted at the Accommodation. With full knowledge of the above facts and warnings, Guest accepts and assumes all risks involved in or related to the use of the hot tub or swimming pool and surrounding floor areas. Use of the private hot tub or swimming pool is for the exclusive use by the occupants of the thereto associated Accommodation, and may thus not be used without Owner’s permission by other persons.

13. MAINTENANCE: PRESTIGE will diligently address maintenance issues as they occur. There is an associated risk of renting a single family residence or condo, as each such Accommodation is unique in various ways (location, view, size, bedding, etc.) and cannot be easily replaced for another same Accommodation. If a maintenance issue occurs and is reported by Guest, that cannot be fixed in a reasonable amount of time, and significantly affects the Guest’s stay, PRESTIGE reserves the right to at its discretion either refund the Guest for the proportional value of the remaining nights of the booked stay, or relocate Guest to another comparable Accommodation if available and accepted by Guest.

14. OWNER ASSOCIATIONS: The Accommodation may be located within a resort or complex with common areas and facilities that are managed and controlled by a (Home) Owner Association. PRESTIGE therefore cannot warranty usage and availability of amenities provided through Owner Associations, including, but not limited to common pools, common outdoor hot tubs, club houses, tennis courts & equipment, sauna equipment, business center equipment, play center equipment, gym equipment, elevators, common BBQ facilities, common pool deck & beach facilities, etc. if any. For the upkeep of the integrity and harmony of the resort or complex, the Owner Association stipulates rules and regulations with regard the use of common areas and facilities (through its Bylaws and its Articles of Association), which may be amended from time to time and which may include sanctions. Guest will receive a summary of these rules and regulations upon arrival, and shall at all times adhere to the stipulations included therein, or otherwise remain solely responsible and liable for the applicable sanctions.

15. EXPRESS INDEMNITY: The undersigned, for himself/herself, his/her heirs, assignors, executors and administrators, fully releases and discharges PRESTIGE and the Owner of the property from any and all claims, demands and causes of action by reason of any injury or whatever nature which has or have occurred, or may occur to the undersigned, or any of his/her guests as a result of, or in connection with the occupancy of the Accommodation and agrees to hold PRESTIGE and Owner free and harmless of any claim or suit arising there from. In any action concerning the rights, duties or liabilities of the parties to this agreement, their principals, agents, successors or assignees, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover reasonable attorney fees and costs.

16. ENTIRE CONTRACT: Time is of the essence. All prior agreements between PRESTIGE and Guest are incorporated in this Agreement, which constitutes the entire contract. It is intended as a final expression of the parties’ agreement, and may not be contradicted by evidence of any prior agreement or contemporaneous oral agreement. The parties further intend that this Agreement constitutes the complete and exclusive statement of its terms, and that no extrinsic evidence whatsoever may be introduced in any judicial or other proceeding, if any, involving this Agreement. Any provision of this Agreement that is held to be invalid shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision in this Agreement. The waiver of any breach shall not be construed as a continuing waiver of the same or any subsequent breach. This Agreement shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of Aruba. The Courts of First Instance in Aruba shall have sole jurisdiction over the parties and the place in which the Premises are located shall be the forum for any legal action brought in relation to this Agreement.

INHERENT ACCEPTANCE BY GUEST: By using this website to make a booking of an Accommodation with (and/or payment to) us, Guest confirms to have accepted our general terms and conditions above.

All Accommodations provided by PRESTIGE must meet our standards of quality and cleanliness. However, there is an associated risk of renting a single family residence or condo, as each such Accommodation is unique in various ways (location, view, size, bedding, etc.) and cannot be easily replaced for another same Accommodation. As unexpected maintenance issues may occur with any Accommodation anywhere in the world, PRESTIGE warrants to diligently address all maintenance issues reported by Guest as they may occur. If a maintenance issue occurs and is reported by Guest, that cannot be fixed in a reasonable amount of time, and significantly affects the Guest’s stay, PRESTIGE reserves the right to at its discretion either refund the Guest for the proportional value of the remaining nights of the booked stay, or relocate Guest to another comparable Accommodation if available and accepted by Guest.

2. PRESTIGE SERVICE WARRANTY: PRESTIGE warrants that any service requested by Guest/Customer, if such service is within the portfolio of PRESTIGE, will be delivered with our high standards as agreed with Guest/Customer. All services provided by PRESTIGE must meet our standards of quality and efficiency. If a Service provided by PRESTIGE does not meet the expectations of the Guest/Customer, PRESTIGE reserves the right to at its discretion either refund the Guest/Customer for the proportional value of (the unsatisfactory part of) the Service, or redo the Service to the full satisfaction of the Guest/Customer.

Some Services are only arranged on behalf of Guest/Customer by PRESTIGE, but delivered by a Third Party service provider. PRESTIGE in such case warrants to have diligently selected Third Party service providers with good performance and business practice. However, PRESTIGE cannot assume any liability for Services provided by Third Parties. If a Third Party service provider does not (fully) perform or execute the Service to the Guest/Customer and such is reported to us by Guest/Customer, PRESTIGE will fully assist Guest/Customer in his/her attempt to obtain full or partial refund of paid sums from such Third Party service provider.
