The tenant must make a reservation from Saturday to Saturday, unless the website at the property explicitly states that flexible arrival days are allowed. Should the tenant prefer to arrive or depart on another day, the tenant must contact CostaBlancaDreams. In the mid and low season, arrivals and departure times may be allowed on other days of the week and shorter stays are also permitted, in consultation with CostaBlancaDreams.
The rented property at the holiday destination will generally be available for occupancy from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. If you arrive later than 22:00 or on Sunday, then CostaBlancaDreams is authorized to charge you for any additional costs of € 50 for handing over the keys.
On the day of departure the tenant must leave the accommodation before 10:00 am, otherwise CostaBlancaDreams is authorized to withhold damages from the deposit.
When booking the accommodation, the tenant must pay a deposit prior to the start of his stay to guarantee use, equipment and conditions of use and departure. This amount can vary per accommodation and will be indicated on the website at the accommodation. The amount will be charged when paying the remaining 70% of the rent. The deposit is refunded within 14 days, unless compensation has been imposed, on the bank or giro account of the tenant. The consumption of gas and electricity is also deducted from the deposit.
During the first 24 hours of the stay in the accommodation, the tenant must send an e-mail to email@example.com if any malfunctions, breakages and / or damage have been found. After 24 hours, CostaBlancaDreams assumes that no malfunctions, breakages and / or damage have been found, and that the accommodation is in good condition. During the stay the tenant must in all cases of breakage, loss and / or damage immediately report this to CostaBlancaDreams, this will be deducted from the deposit. If CostaBlancaDreams finds any breakage, loss and / or damage after the departure of the tenant, CostaBlancaDreams will report this and deduct it from the deposit. With each report, CostaBlancaDreams asks the tenant to provide the following information: name and reservation number, the name of the accommodation and the inconveniences that have been noted. Photos of the problems may always be added for clarification.

In the event of excessive use, the router will no longer function and additional costs may be charged.
11. Satellite TV
Where descriptions refer to satellite TV, this does not automatically mean that the reception includes all stations. The mainly foreign owners have decoders that are not always suitable for receiving desired stations.
12. Water and electricity
Interruptions in water and electricity supply are not uncommon in Spain. For various reasons, municipal and / or regional governments can temporarily break or reduce distribution. CostaBlancaDreams cannot be held liable for any inconveniences and damage caused by such circumstances.
13. Electricity and possible gas costs
The costs of electricity and / or gas are not included in the price. These costs will be settled with the deposit afterwards. On the website at the accommodation it will be stated whether the house also has gas. The electricity meter and any gas meter are included on arrival and departure.

If the pool is dirty or inconvenient, let it know immediately by calling 0034 602610740.
Glasses, cups, plates etc are forbidden around and in the swimming pool. Any type of manipulation by the tenant can lead to sanctions. Pay attention when the tiles are wet, they can be slippery.

It is not allowed to enter the apartment / villa with more people than indicated on the website. The tenants must sleep on the existing beds.

CostaBlancaDreams can issue a fine or oblige tenants to leave the property. The rental price will not be refunded.
16. Construction activities, noise and environmental problems
The accommodation offered generally consists of private properties that belong to different individual owners. The accommodation is not usually located on tourist complexes, so there is an unlikely possibility that unexpected construction work will take place in the area. This work is performed by homeowners or contractors with whom CostaBlancaDreams has no relationship and over whom CostaBlancaDreams cannot exercise control. CostaBlancaDreams cannot be held liable for any inconvenience caused by construction work and that has not been assigned by CostaBlancaDreams.
Noise pollution and environmental problems can occur in the area. Unfortunately, CostaBlancaDreams cannot do anything about this and cannot be held responsible for this.

In the event of force majeure, both of a permanent and temporary nature, CostaBlancaDreams is entitled to terminate the agreement in whole or in part or to suspend it temporarily without the tenant being able to claim fulfillment and / or compensation. Force majeure includes, but is not limited to: death of the owner, divorce of the owner, unannounced sale and / or taking into use of the holiday home by the owner, etc. under which CostaBlancaDreams cannot reasonably or fully fulfill the agreement be required.
If the force majeure occurs while the tenant has only been able to make partial use of the holiday home, the rental agreement must also be considered terminated for the time already used.
In such a case CostaBlancaDreams is only obliged to repay the amounts already paid by the tenant to CostaBlancaDreams. In order to continue to guarantee quality, CostaBlancaDreams reserves the right to replace the rented accommodation with a comparable accommodation.
