The Advertiser lets the following property (rental object) to the Tenant:

Villa Laura Marie is an independent and fenced house facing the sea with a large garden, parking for two cars inside the gate, 3 bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen and a bathroom. The house is completely available during the booked weeks. The house can host a maximum of 5 people, including children. Animals are not allowed.

The address of the house is: via Francesco Paolo Perez # ——  – 90011 Bagheria ( PA )

 The rental house is a non-smoking area. However you may smoke outdoors.

During any time of the rental parties or events are not allowed.

Charging of electric cars must be agreed on in advance with the owner

The house is equipped with a free wired and wireless internet connection and a telephone enabled only for local calls and 800 numbers. You can freely use the telephone to place calls in Italy only and receive calls from Italy and all other countries. Consider that the reception of cell phones is very weak on the property; to be reached during your stay you can use Whatsapp or our wired phone.


2          Rental period, arrival and departure

The rental property is let to the Tenant from _________________ (arrival date)  until _______________

(departure date).

The check-in is after 3.00 p.m. – we encourage doing the check-in between 3.00 and 4.00 p.m.

The check-out is at 10.00 a.m.

The villa is usually rented from Saturday to Saturday; if it necessary it is possible to arrange with the owner a postponed  check-in day (for example doing it on Sunday) or to move up the check-out day (for example doing it on Friday).

At the end of the rental period the Tenant is to vacate the property and return the keys to the Advertiser or the  Advertiser’s agent.

At the end of the rental period the Tenant should leave the property in similar conditions to that in which it was found. The house must be left in an orderly fashion, the dishes must be cleaned and the trash thrown out. Any additional cleaning costs incurred by the Advertiser may be passed on to the Tenant at their sole discretion.


3          Rental price

The rental price is  €   ________________     per week  for the duration of the rental period

The final cleaning has a cost of €65 for a group of 2-3 people and of €85 for a group of 4-5 people, and should be paid cash at the arrival. Bed linen and towels (a set of three towels for each guest) will be provided.

Guests that rent the house for 2 or more weeks will have a complete cleaning for a cost of €30 (done usually on Saturdays in three hours) with a change of bed linen and towels.

The final cost of the rental will be €  ___________________________________________________

Striving to be more environmentally aware is one of the owner’s goals. The cost of electricity is included, however, to avoid excessive use of energy a 120 Kw per week is allowed (this amount was carefully calculated and is usually more than the average quantity necessary). When the electric meter will detect a consumption surplus the Tenant will pay the extra at the cost price of  €0,40 per kilowatt.


4          Payments

The Tenant will pay 40% of the rent when first booking the house and the remaining 60% two weeks before the arrival.

Both payments could be paid through a wire transfer to the owner’s account at “Banca  Intesa – San Paolo” or with Pay-Pal.

Cleaning expenses will be paid in cash on arrival as well as a deposit of  200 which will be refunded in cash at check-out if no damages occurred.


5          Cancellation and early termination

If the Tenant cancels the rental before the arrival date and doesn’t  name a replacement that accepts the same terms, they are responsible for paying the following penalty fees to cover costs (excluding cleaning), as long as a further rental is not possible:

From the moment of the deposit to 60 days

before the rental period

40%  of the rental price
From 59 up to 30 days before the rental period 50 % of the rental price
up to 21 days before the rental period 70 % of the rental price
up to 14 days before the rental period 90 % of the rental price
Less than 14 days before the rental period 100 % of the rental price

In the event that the Advertiser manages to get a last-minute rental on the week that the Tenant canceled, the Advertiser will keep only 30% of the rental amount and reimburse the rest to the Tenant.

If the Tenant terminates their stay before the end of the rental period, they are obliged to pay the full rental price.


Cancellations due to COVID-19:

If COVID-19 restrictions enable the Tenant to travel during the period before the rental it is possible to repurpose the already paid amount into a voucher for the same or the following year. The Tenant has to communicate the cancellation any time from 59 to 14 days before the rental period.


6          Liability and responsibilities of the Tenant

The rental property including the furniture and the other contents is to be treated with care. The Tenant is held responsible for the actions of other people, including any guests or visitors they might have, within the house. The Tenant is liable for any damaged goods, damage to the property, or damage to anything else related to the property whether caused by themselves or their accompanying guests or visitors.
