Changes to a reservation that result in a shortened stay are subject to the same cancellation terms as provided above.
Booking Confirmation
Because the property is not owned by Rental Advisor and as Rental Advisor works as an intermediary between the owner of the property and the guests, all reservations are subject to owner approval. Guest should not make non-refundable purchases based on the reservation until they have received written confirmation that the owner has signed an official acceptance of the reservation. Please contact us if you have any questions about this. Even when a reservation has been “processed” this does not mean that it has been confirmed by the owner. Because this is a private residence the owner has the final say on all guests. Lavish getaways does everything possible to ensure your reservation is not cancelled by an owner but in rare cases an owner may not be able to accommodate our client due to an owner's mistake and the owner has final authority over their property. Until owners approve of your reservation, your reservation is not confirmed. Reservations that have been processed are not confirmed as they are still awaiting final owner approval. Confirmation from the owner is normally given within 48 hours but may take a week or longer if an owner is unavailable.  After owner has received funds from Rental Advisor, if for some reason the owner were not to be able to honor your booking due to the home being unfit for use, sold or due to owner's inability to accommodate, the owner will be responsible for finding you comparable alternative accommodations. Rental Advisor will assist in this effort to the best of their ability. Rental Advisor is not a real estate brokerage but acts a a marketing agency for the owner that brings all potential bookings to the owner for final approval. By making a reservation with us you fully recognize the risks associated with working through a middleman intermediary and release Rental Advisor from any liability if an owner is unable to accommodate you.
Additional charges.

These charges may include but are not limited to extra cleaning charges if units are left in an excessively disorderly state, damages to the property, fines for violation of the house rules or other behavior that disturbs neighbors or excessively inconveniences ground staff. We do everything possible to avoid additional charges but by paying for this reservation you fully authorize Getaway Ventures to make such charges if violations of the general terms or damages to the property does occur.

If a guest is concerned or wishes to have verification of legal compliance of the property owner they must request this verification information prior to booking. Due to updates in local laws or changes made by owners prior to arrival, additional contract terms may be given by Rental Advisor or the property owner upon check in or at a time after the initial booking is processed by Rental Advisor. If you have any questions or concerns about these possible additional contract terms or any of the terms in this agreement please notify us prior to making payment and we will provide you with all the information we can.
