1. Reservation and booking
The confirmation of a booking depends on availability at the time of booking. Bookings are confirmed once the agreed payments are made. Confirmation is subject to the terms below. No booking is considered confirmed until the required payment is made.
Once a booking is made and the advance payment received, a booking confirmation containing the necessary booking details is sent by e-mail. It is the customer’s responsibility to review these details and inform us immediately of any errors.
The person making the booking must be at least 18 years old. The booking is a legally binding declaration of intent aimed at concluding the rental contract with irrevocable effect.
If a booking is made less than 8 weeks before arrival, the entire amount (the full rent and deposit) must be paid at the time of booking itself. (Payment terms 14 days after receipt of the booking).
If a booking is made more than 8 weeks before arrival, an advance payment of 25% of the total rent is due immediately, to be paid directly to Westbury S.L. The balance amount (75% of the rent plus security deposit (see 2.2) and out cleaning charges (see 6.3)) must be paid at the latest 8 weeks before the commencement of the rental contract.
An invoice for the entire amount will be sent to you by e-mail as soon as the full rent is deposited into our account. The full amount must be received by us at the latest 6 weeks before arrival. Failure to do so will be considered a rescission from the rental contract (by the holiday rental guest). In such case, we reserve the right to cancel bookings and charge fees as specified at item 12 “Cancellation”. The booking dates will then be released within 2 working days.
2.1. Advance Payment
An advance payment of 25% of the total rent must be made upon booking. We will hold the booking for 14 days till the advance payment is received. The reservation will automatically lapse after this period. The advance payment will be applied toward the full rent.
2.2. Security deposit
A security deposit of € 250 (Villa Dunas, Can Finisterre: € 500) is required. It must be paid along with the “balance amount” (at latest 8 weeks before arrival). This security deposit will be returned within 14 days of departure if no damage and/or defect in or to the bungalow is seen upon completion of a final inspection.
Incidental costs (such as water, electricity and gas) are included in the rent.
We reserve the right to change tariffs. Tariffs for existing bookings will not be affected.
The rent includes the corresponding VAT of 10%.
4. Booking period
The minimum booking period will be one week. For organizational reasons, your bungalow will be reserved from 4 PM on the check-in date to 11 PM on the check-out date. Earlier check-in or later check-out times must be arranged in advance.
5. Additional services
We will do our best to accommodate additional requests but cannot guarantee so.
Extra costs associated with a special request shall be borne by the guest either before or upon arrival.
We cannot accept conditional bookings based on the satisfaction of additional requests.
5.1. Extra beds
In addition to the standard configuration, you can book up to two extra beds in some of our bungalows. Your request must be made at the time of booking. We charge a flat amount of € 20 per bed per night.
5.2. Baby set
We offer a baby set for families with small children (0 to 36 months) as an additional service. The baby set includes a travel bed, a child high chair, safety plugs and a baby bathtub. Your request must be made at the time of booking. A fee of € 10 per night will be charged.
In principle, dogs and cats are allowed. However, your request must be noted on the booking form. For other pets, we request you to contact us with brief details.

7. Handover of the bungalow; complaints
The bungalow will be provided to the guest in a well-cleaned condition and as specified in the contract. The bungalow is free from defects. If there are defects at the time of handover or fixtures missing, the guest must inform the property lessor promptly within 24 hours. Otherwise the bungalow will be considered to have been provided in spotless condition.
If the guest delays in checking in or does not check in at all, the full rent will be due. The same shall apply in case of early check-out. The bungalow must be returned on time and in proper condition with all fixtures. The guest is liable to pay compensation for damages and missing fixtures.
8. Hand-over of keys
Keys to the bungalow will be provided on location. The holiday rental guest is not authorized to make more keys, and must not retain any keys when leaving. In case of a lost key, the client has to bear the costs of exchanging the entire lock.
Travel cancellation insurance is not included in the rent. We recommend that the holiday rental guest take out a travel cancellation insurance policy.
10. Booking changes by the holiday rental guest
Only employees of Westbury S.L. can make changes to bookings. Please use the contact form or our service number to contact us. We will do our best to help you. A processing fee will apply, depending on the change. You will be informed of the fee at the time of the change.
If you change a booking less than 6 weeks before arrival, cancellation charges may apply.
11. Booking changes by the property lessor
We always strive to stick to the arrangements made, however amendments may become necessary for reasons beyond our control. In such case, we reserve the right to change bookings to bungalows of the same or higher quality. If only a lower quality alternative is available, you are entitled to the appropriate reimbursement.
You may either accept the change and reimbursement offered or cancel the booking and receive a refund for the entire amount without incurring any cancellation charges. We are not liable for any resulting losses with respect to the trip or other services from other service providers.
11.1. Force majeure
If force majeure (environmental catastrophes, natural forces, official measures etc.) or unforeseeable/unavoidable events frustrate the rental contract or its continuance, the property lessor is entitled (but not obligated) to offer a substitute property of the same quality to the holiday rental guest, to the exclusion of damage claims. If services cannot be rendered or cannot be rendered in full, the amount paid or an appropriate part of it may be refunded, to the exclusion of further claims. In the event of force majeure, the guest cannot claim refund for payments already made.
12. Cancellation/rescission from the agreement
There is a mutual cancellation option up to 8 weeks prior to arrival. Thereafter the guest may rescind from the agreement at any time under the following conditions.
If a booking is canceled in whole or in part, we require notification in writing from the person who made the booking. The following charges will apply. A rescission from the rental contract is valid only through a written declaration of rescission. The receipt of written declaration by the property lessor shall be decisive for the rescission. E-mails are also accepted provided they are sent from the e-mail address specified in the booking.
