The tenant agrees to all measures which are considered necessary to avoid fraudulent or illegal use of the internet during his stay. The tenant acknowledges his responsibility in this matter and accepts all claims to compensate damage arising for the owner caused by fraudulent or illegal use of the internet during the rental period.
9 A non-smoking policy applies in all holiday houses. Outside the house smoking is allowed, but at all times tenants should remove cigarette waste/butts properly. In forested areas, smoking is strongly discouraged due to drought and therefore high risk of fires.
ARTICLE 7 Cancellation by the tenant
Every cancellation of a booking needs to be communicated with us via email. In case of a "no show" the costs will be 100% of the renting costs and there will be no refunds. The costs for cancellation will be calculated as follows:
• More than 42 days (6 weeks) prior to arrival: The amount of the down payment. Depending on the house is this 30% or 50% of the total rental amount. You can find this percentage on the webpage of the house and on your invoice.
• Between 42 and 28 days prior to arrival: 60% of the renting cost.
• Less than 28 days prior to arrival: 100% of the renting cost.
ARTICLE 8 Deposit
1 The deposit will be paid in Euros by bank transfer to Craft Ibiza. The exact amount and the way of payment can be found on your payment order. Craft Ibiza shall ensure that this amount is deposited on a separate third-party account of Craft Ibiza. When the tenant pays the deposit through PayPal an extra charge of 2,8% will either be added to the deposit or deducted from the deposit to cover the transfer costs.
The deposit will be refunded to the tenant after departure, after approval by Craft Ibiza or the owner of the adequate delivery of the rented object. This approval will be given by the owner within a period of 3 days after departure. If the owner does not communicate his approval within this period and nothing else is agreed with the tenant, Craft Ibiza presumes that the owner agrees with the refund of the deposit. We will return the deposit (minus possible damage costs) per bank transfer within 2 weeks of departure. We can’t be held liable for any exchange rate losses.
1 In the event of damage which is estimated to be higher than the deposit, found at or after departure of the tenant, a report will be made by the owner or by an expert. After Craft Ibiza receives this report with photos and description, Craft Ibiza will inform the tenant about the amount necessary to repair or replace the damages. The tenant will receive a copy of the mentioned damage report. The tenant is obliged to compensate for this damage. In case of damage found at or after departure of tenant, estimated less than or equal to the amount of the deposit, the repair or replacement of the goods is, after consultation of the owner, charged directly from the deposit.
2 The tenant agrees that, in case of damage to the rented object or accessory, inflicted by acts of the tenant during his stay in the rented object, the entire deposit can be retained. In case this amount is not sufficient for compensation for the total loss or damage as stated in the report, the tenant will pay the remaining amount necessary for repair and/or replacement to the owner (on the indicated account number) upon written notice by Craft Ibiza and/or owner within a period of ten days after the date of this notice.
3 A deduction from the deposit is also permitted if the tenant does not return the rented object empty within the agreed terms or at the failure by tenant of his other responsibilities arising from the contract. Retainment of the deposit does not relieve the tenant of his duty to other compensations that the owner can ask when the rented object is not returned empty within the agreed terms.
4 The tenant agrees that Craft Ibiza cannot be held responsible for deductions on or retainment of the deposit and/or other claims to compensations that the owner can ask in case of damage or when the rented object is not returned empty within the agreed terms. The decision to refund the deposit as well as the decision about any other compensation lies with the owner, the settlement of these decisions with the tenant may be delegated by the owner to Craft Ibiza.
ARTICLE 9 Conformity, changes to the rented object, technical malfunctions, accidents and use of the swimming pool.
1 The description of the rental object, in documents or on the internet site of Craft Ibiza, must be in accordance with the reality and approved by the owner. Craft Ibiza and the owner will do their utmost to ensure that information regarding the rental object with accessories, the location of the rental object, as well as the description of the existing furniture, is as complete as possible.
2 If in the hypothetical case, despite all precautions, changes occur to the rental object before the rental period of a tenant starts, Craft Ibiza will notify the tenant without delay (?) as soon as possible.
3 The owner however cannot be held responsible by the tenant for a possible reduction of rental pleasure by modifications to the rental object, occurring after publication of the information of this rental object, which are not due to his (better: the owner’s) acts or to his inactivity.
4 Technical malfunctions: The owner cannot be held responsible for electricity failures, defects to supply of gas or water or disturbances to electrical equipment that are not directly due to his actions or his negligence.
5 Accidents and use of the swimming pool: The owner does not accept liability for any accidents in or around the rental object unless injuries to persons or the death of persons are directly due to his negligence. The owner rejects every liability regarding accidents related to the use of or access to the pool, except if an accident is due to the owners’ failure to comply to the applicable requirements for security and access to swimming pools.
ARTICLE 10 Final provisions
1 The contract and the terms and conditions related to the contract, have been drawn up and will be interpreted to the rules of private international law.
2 Any provision in the contract that is considered not applicable, will be considered as not written. Parties agree that, in case of cancellation of any provision of the contract, the other provisions of the contract remain in force.

4 The tenant declares whilst signing the rental contract to have read and to accept the contract and the general terms and conditions for rental that are linked to the contract. Agreement with the contract and the general terms and conditions by e-mail is deemed to be authentic.
ARTICLE 11 Liability
1 When Craft Ibiza is forced to cancel a reservation due to unforeseeable circumstances, Craft Ibiza will try to find a house with similar characteristics. If this is not possible, we will refund your payment without any further compensation.
2 Craft Ibiza does not accept any liability for damages or personal injury that occurred during your stay. Also we accept no liability due to changed conditions in or around the house that we can't be taken responsible for. This includes construction work. All our houses are solely rented out for holiday purposes. Professional photography, parties or weddings in and around the house is only allowed after our (and the owners’) explicit permission.
ARTICLE 12 Additional information
1 On the day of departure, tenants have to check out before 10.00 am. The keys need to be returned to the tenant’s contact person, except if the tenant and the contact person have agreed upon a different time. In case of actions by the tenant against our policies, we will be forced to deduct € 200,- from the tenant’s caution deposit.
2 The Ibiza Actual regulation does not allow the organisation of private parties in houses. If parties are organised without informing us or the owner of the house, all fines and payments shall be paid by you, the tenant. Parties and other such social gatherings organised without our prior consent may result in forfeiture of the entire security deposit.
3 Tenants are highly recommended to remove their garbage every day. Disposal bins can be found on the main roads. It should be taken into account that many houses are situated in the country side, and that if garbage is left around the house, it will attract all kind of wildlife. On the day of departure, the tenant is obliged to remove all garbage, otherwise Craft Ibiza is entitled to a fine of € 70,- per garbage bag and this will be deducted from the tenant’s deposit.
4 Bed linen and towels are included in the rental price of the house. Except for extra towels, which hold an extra charge of € 4,- per towel.
5 On the day of departure, the house must be in the same state as it was found upon arrival. The kitchen, BBQ and all the cutlery that belongs to it, needs to cleaned and put in place. It is not necessary to vacuum, clean or scrub the house, the end cleaning is included in the rent. Nonetheless, everything needs to be put in place. If this is not the case, there is a fine of € 100,- and this will be deducted from the tenant’s deposit.
6 In case the tenant loses the keys, we will charge the costs for replacement. This can be expensive since the owner(s) might need to change the locks, print new keys and/or order new alarm sets.
7 It is forbidden to change the way the furniture is placed. The tenant will accept the house as it is and the way the furniture is placed. Furniture is only allowed to be used for the purpose it was designed for. If furniture is missing or damaged, because of misuse, the repair or newly bought furniture needs to be paid by the tenant.
8 Every house is designed for a maximum number of people. It is not allowed to have more people in the house then agreed upon. The tenant is responsible for the amount of people in the house. In case the tenant fails to do so, we have the right to take appropriate measures: evacuating the house, or an extra charge of € 150 per night per person.
9 Baby cots and baby chairs are available on request and will be provided by the owner or Craft Ibiza. Jurriaan de Reijer
