    1. Contracting Parties
      The rental agreement (consisting of agreement and confirmation showing the rental period) is concluded between the guest/renter who is min. 25 years of age and the owners of the abovementioned houses Heidi Strohschein and Juergen Kroeger. The agreement is valid with one signature of the owners on the agreement. The contract is about the vacation house as shown and described on the websites. Any exemptions to the terms and conditions must be approved in writing in advance. Should the owner privately use closets or garages and it is not mentioned on the website the renter is not entitled to claim a refund of rent. Boats or other vehicles shown on pictures do never automatically belong to the house rental contract. Boats may be rented individually through the intermediaries Heidi Strohschein and Juergen Kroeger, house and boat rental contracts are not connected to each other. It might be the case the owner uses a part of the garage for a car or storage. There is no guarantee that the renter’s car fits into the garage. Most houses have a privately used and locked closet and garage. This is known and accepted by the renter.


    1. Rental Agreement / Rental Rates
      The rental agreement may be sent by e-mail or fax. Confirmed and signed rental agreements are required for any rental agreement and reservation to be valid. Any rental agreement is independent and not connected with any other contracts like flight tickets or travel insurances. The address of the vacation house is mentioned on the top of the contract. The renter is obliged to double check the rental address which is also clearly stated on the website and the rental rates before signing the contract which shows the address on top of the rental contract to make sure he rents the house he wants to rent. The renter has to avoid any misunderstandings possible due to the similar names and addresses of the houses. Rental rates shown on a rental agreement are binding. Changes have to be made if a pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognized as a mispricing or calculation error. Further reasons for changing the contracts are adding additional guests or if new taxes, government or cleaning fees etc. are valid for the time booked. Prices are liable to change at any time, but rental rates changes will not affect agreements in respect of which we have already signed as a confirmation. The boat dock on the premises may be used if the owner will be informed upfront about the boat rental company whose boat will be moored or if you bring your own boat. The boat lift does not belong to the rental contract and may be used if you rent a boat over the owner with Cape Escape Boat Rental, L.L.C.. A writing confirmation of the owner has to be made in such cases before the arrival date.


    1. Security Deposit
      The security deposit is a refundable amount established as a safeguard against property damage. The security deposit funds may be applied for supplemental cleaning if the property manager determines that you did not leave the property neat and tidy, and in broom clean condition for the housekeeping staff. Security deposit is not meant to be to deduct any electric fees. Security deposit will be refunded within approximately 1-6 weeks of the departure date by check to guests from the US and Canada and by transfer to European guests. The renter makes sure the correct full address including zip code is supplied for the rental contract to avoid any problems sending the deposit back by mail. European guests please provide the IBAN number and the exact name of the owner of the account. Should a security deposit have been reimbursed unconditionally it does not rule out the option of asserting damage.


    1. Payments
      In order to reserve this rental property for the renter the owner must receive the signed agreement. The renter arranges the down payment mentioned in the contract within 1 week of initial reservation. Both the deposit and the payment of the balance including security deposit due will be paid 6 weeks ahead of arrival. Late reservations (confirmed within 6 weeks of the planned arrival date) will require payment in full. Payments are not accepted on arrival. The owners have the right to cancel the contract if payments are late. Failure to pay balance when due will result in cancelation of reservation and loss of deposit. You will still be liable for the balance due. The renter will accordingly be responsible for any consequences. The owners are entitled to cancel the contract if the renter does not make the payments according to the contract.


    1. Extra Charges
      Extra charges not included in the contract are as follows:

Renters staying more than 3 weeks agree to make an interims payment every 2 weeks. Deposit is not meant to be to deduct any electric fees. Please note that it is recommended to close doors and windows to avoid extensive costs. High usage of the whirlpool will also cause additional electric power consumption.
