1. Making your booking
Bookings can be made by completing the online booking form at Competa Private Rentals website and following the on-screen instructions. Once we have received your booking form and booking deposit, we will confirm your stay by issuing a confirmation invoice by email.
In order to confirm your stay, a deposit of €400 (finca) or €150 (casa)(or full payment if booking within 8 weeks or 56 days of departure) must be paid at the time of booking. This deposit is not refundable in the event of your cancellation or failure to pay on time.
De balance is due and must be received by us not less than 8 weeks prior to departure. If you have not paid in full and on time we reserve the right to treat your booking as cancelled by you.
3. Security Deposit.
Your booking must be accompanied by a returnable security deposit of € 300 (finca) or €150 (casa). The cost of any damage to the property or to any items in and/or at the property will be deducted by us from the security deposit at the end of your stay. If no deductions are required your security deposit will be refunded in full to you 14 days after your departure from the property. If the security deposit is not sufficient to cover any damage caused you will be responsible for paying us any additional money necessary to restore it.

The isolated location of the house requires a little understanding and extra acceptance from the tenant. In the description of the house we took into account its location in mountainous, isolated terrain. In accordance with our possibilities, we try to make sure that the road leading to the house is possible to overcome with the use of a normal car. The nearest Health Centre is in Competa, 15 minutes by car and the hospital in Torre del Mar is 40 minutes away by car.
Disappointment due to the lack of ability to quickly reach the assistance service of/and the quality of the access road will not be taken into account by us.

If you fail to do so, you will be responsible for meeting any legal costs we incur in full in recovering full payment from you. We expect all clients to have consideration for other people.
