This availability calendar

your booking confirmation email.
Payment would also be made to the owners in
Pounds Sterling. Other currencies may be accepted but may attract a small
handling charge (owners will advise). Payment can be accepted by:
- direct bank transfer (UK or international)
- PayPal (see below)
- Credit Card/Debit Card via PayPal (see below)
We can invoice via PayPal allowing a hirer to
pay by credit or debit card. However, if a hirer does want to pay by
credit/debit card through our Paypal emailed invoice or through their own
Paypal account, we regret this will incur a 4% surcharge (which is
unfortunately what we will be charged by PayPal). Customers outside the UK
are responsible for all IBAN transfer charges.

The rates shown above are the weekly hiring
rates for the villa. The villa sleeps 8 persons plus 2 babies/toddlers. For
occupants over 5 persons, there is a supplement of £45 per person per
week. For 2 occupants only, there would be a price reduction. Babies/toddlers
under 2 years of age using cots are free.
The rates are inclusive of a generous
amount of free electricity, and free water, gas, bed linen/towels laundry,
internet access, and the services of our local agents, so you would not get any
nasty bills for additional charges at the end of your stay!
There is a one-off supplement of £20 for
hirers arriving/departing on a Sunday.
We can accept bookings from 5 days or more but
the minimum charge period is 1 week at the appropriate rate. We can be flexible
on the number of days hired over 1 week.
Longer term rentals during the Mid and High
Seasons would be considered at reduced rates. Please contact us for a
quotation. Low Season lettings (Nov - Mar) would only be considered for a
minimum of 6 weeks.
ONLINE BOOKINGS - CAUTION!
Many of the large online holiday rental companies try to scare
potential hirers into thinking that they are much safer in booking a property
online and making payments through their websites. While this does have an
element of truth, the financial guarantees they offer are not always what they
seem and have conditions attached. Additionally, some add an additional 10% -
15% booking fee to the advertised hiring charge but keep this largely hidden
until guests have committed themselves to hiring a property. Some sites charge
the owner 15% commission which means the owner has to uplift the hiring charges
accordingly. Further, some owners do not want any direct dealings with their
guests so prefer online booking. We, on the other hand, want to minimise the
cost of booking Jasmine Villa to a minimum and develop a good direct
relationship with guests. With Jasmine Villa, the price you see is the price
you pay (sometimes less!). Do be aware of these factors when booking a
property. Please read our document "Booking Direct Safely".
PRINCIPAL CONDITIONS & INFORMATION
- Hire of the villa commences at 4.00pm on the first day and
terminates at 10.00am on the final day of hire.
- All hand and bath towels and bed linen are supplied.
Additional sets of linen/towels are supplied for hirings between 10 and 16
days. However, if further linen/towels is required, this can be provided for an
extra fee. A washing machine is available if you chose to do your own. The
villa is cleaned between changeovers.
- A basic welcome pack can be made available on your arrival
at a price to be agreed. This would be tailored to your individual requirements
but typically could contain a 5ltr bottle of water, milk, butter, bread,
cereals, cheese, eggs, tea, coffee, sugar, jam.
- No smoking is permitted in the villa itself but smokers may
use the terrace, patio and pool areas provided no cigarette/cigar ends are
left. No pets are allowed.
- Water is heated by solar means and this is backed-up by an
immersion heater (if necessary). The hire charge contains an allowance of 10%
for free electricity usage. For example, if the hire charge totalled
£1150, hirers would be allowed free electricity to the value of
£115 during their stay before they would be liable for paying any excess
amount. Meter readings would be taken at the start and finish of the letting
period and the amount of electricity used calculated at the rate we are charged
(currently £0.20 per kw). Any excess over and above the 10% allowance
would be deducted from the returnable Security Deposit. The allowance, however,
should in most cases be adequate provided air-conditioning and the immersion
heater are not used excessively. This approach is taken as electricity in North
Cyprus is relatively expensive and by controlling electricity usage, we can all
help protect natural resources. As a guide, only five hirers have exceeded
their allowance since 2010.
- IMPORTANT - Pool areas are dangerous and may become
slippery when wet. Neither the owners nor their agents can be held liable for
activities or accidents in and around the pool. It is the total responsibility
of hirers to ensure that children and vulnerable persons are adequately
supervised in the villa, garden, terrace, patio, and pool areas at all times
irrespective of the safety features we have installed. Climbing on or over
walls is strictly forbidden on safety grounds. Hirers should ensure that they
are adequately insured prior to the commencement of their stay at the
- In the case of cancellations, refunds will be made as
follows: 56+ days before stay - 50% of hire charge; 28 - 55 days - 25% of hire
charge; 0-27 days - none of hire charge refundable. The £200 Security
Deposit would be refunded in full. Hirers are strongly recommended to have
holiday insurance in force from the time of their booking to the time of their
arrival home after their stay at the villa.
- A copy of the full terms and conditions (which form part of
the booking contract) (see also link below) will be provided on confirmation of
the booking. Information notes, location maps, key arrangements, etc. will be
posted to the hirer following payment of the final balance - approximately 7
weeks before the commencement of hire. The hirer's full postal address and a
contact phone number is required at the time of booking.
