Apartment Keys and Arrival
In most cases, the apartment keys are sent directly to the guest
prior to their leaving home. There are a few apartments in which the
property meets guests at the apartment and the key is handed over
then (in such cases, the keys are to be left in the apartment on the
departure day). For all reservations where the keys are received prior
to arrival, it is the responsibility of the guest to send the keys back
to our US office within 5 days of departure from the property - a self address mailer is included with
the keys for this purpose, insure the package for the equivalent
of 120 € (or $150 US). If you fail to ship the keys within 5 days and
this delay causes another guest to pay an arrival fee, you will be
charged the cost of that arrival fee.
For security reasons, DO NOT carry the keys and
the address of the property together. In such cases where the keys are
lost with the apartment information, the guest will bear the cost of
changing door lock and having new keys made, a cost that may exceed

cancelled dates and the client has made only the confirmation payment,
then there is no refund.

for stays of less than five nights; the cost is shown in the rate box

towels will be provided at no additional cost. The client may also
request the apartment cleaned and serviced at an additional cost (fees

Accidental Damage Waiver
In order to help make your stay as worry free as possible and also to
protect the apartment owner's property, all guests are required to
purchase a damage waiver. The cost is $29 for apartments that have a
non-discounted nightly rate of less than $250 per night and $49 for all
others. This is a single charge for any length of stay and covers all
accidental damage up to a maximum of $1450.00 per reservation for all
guests staying in the apartment. There is a $100 deductible that can be deducted from
the $150 key security deposit. The damage waiver is
a purchase and the cost is non-refundable.

Damage due to intentional acts, gross negligence, or willful misconduct.
Lost apartment door keys- the guest is
responsible for the keys

unless specifically stated).

our guests. However, on days in which there is a same day change over,
guest must adhere to following rules: Departing guests

will be no other guest arriving you may usually leave later than 9:30 AM

actual check out time.
When you arrive at the apartment with the keys, you may let yourself in anytime after 9:30
by using the
key and the directions given in pre-arrival file for the apartment. If
you find the apartment clean, then you may occupy it right away. But if
it needs to be cleaned, you may leave your luggage but you cannot
occupy the apartment until the cleaners have completed their work
(usually no later than 2:00 PM -14:00).
Any reservation obtained under false pretenses will be subject to
forfeiture of advance payment, deposit, and/or rental money and the
party will not be permitted to check in or will be required to leave if
already occupying the property. Such falsification may include but are
not limited to the number of persons booked into the property and the
ages of the guests.
Persons less than 21 years of age may only
occupy an apartment when accompanied by an adult having a minimum age of
25 years old. The minimum rental age is 21.
of Technical Services
It is possible that the Internet service, telephone service, or cable TV
service in your apartment is unavailable during your stay due to
problems that are out of the control of the property owner. It is also possible
that the Internet service provided is not compatible with the your

property owner nor VIP will be responsible any loses or
expenditures due to the outage.
In properties that have Wi-Fi
connectivity to the Internet, it is possible that the system may not be
compatible with your computer or working properly. It is always a good
idea to carry with your computer a standard Ethernet cable to be used if
your laptop is unable to connect with the wireless signal.

reason including but not limited to fire, water outage, water damage,
electrical failure, legal restrictions, change in ownership of the

an equivalent rental property for guests that have reserved the
property. If an alternate property is not possible, VIP reserves the right to cancel the
reservation and return all monies to the guest. In no event shall VIP be
liable for any special, indirect, punitive, incidental, exemplary or
consequential damages, or any damages whatsoever resulting from the
cancellation of a reservation or due to the property not being available.

liability for any nights that the guest was unable to occupy the
property is equal to but not more than the reservation costs for those
