We are a small property and so we have no choice but to adhere to our cancellation policy very strictly. While we may empathize with you in cases of unforeseen circumstances, a cancellation is also very costly on our part. As a result of your cancellation we do incur non-refundable charges ourselves, not to mention the lost opportunity to rent the property for that time period. Additionally, large homes such as hours tend to book many months in advance. It is therefore very rare to be able to rebook in under 3-6 months. We find that our cancellation policy discourages people from ‘shopping around’ which may be appropriate for large hotels but unfortunate for villas.
In the spirit of fairness, if you are concerned about the possibility of cancellation or early departure, we strongly suggest that you take responsibility for this risk and obtain trip cancellation/interruption insurance. Also in the spirit of fairness, we ask you to not put us in the awkward position of having to remind you about our cancellation policy should an unforeseen condition arise and you have no cancellation insurance. We thank you in advance for your understanding.
A few companies that offer trip cancellation insurance, which offers travellers full protection from illness, death, or other travel emergencies that can occur, are listed below in no particular order. Their inclusion in this list is for informational purposes only and should not be interpreted as an endorsement. Please research them and see, which company, if any, offers the protection that you need and or desire.
Should you buy travel insurance? We encourage our guests to purchase travel insurance as we adhere to a very strict cancellation policy as described above. Ultimately, the choice is yours.
