(hereinafter: "the provider"):


§ 1 validity of the conditions

(2) The subletting or re-letting of the rented holiday home as well as its use for purposes other than accommodation require the prior consent of the provider in writing, whereby § 540 (1) sentence 2 BGB is waived unless the guest is a consumer.

§ 2 Contractual partner, booking / booking confirmation, statute of limitations

(1) Contractual partners are the provider and the guest.

The guest is bound to a booking declaration made by him either via the website of the provider (, by email or by telephone, which the provider has not yet accepted, 14 calendar days after the declaration has been made. The provider is entitled to accept the booking within this period by sending a booking confirmation in writing. The time at which the guest receives the provider's declaration of acceptance is decisive for compliance with the deadline. Any statutory right of withdrawal in accordance with the provisions on distance selling remains unaffected.

(3) All claims against the provider generally become statute-barred one year from the start of the statutory limitation period. This does not apply to claims for damages and other claims, provided that the latter are based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by the provider.


§ 3 Services, prices and terms of payment

(1) The provider is obliged to provide the apartments booked by the guest and to provide the other agreed services. The contractual scope of services results from the booking of the guest and the booking confirmation of the provider, whereby the holiday apartment is only used by the persons listed in the booking. If the guest wishes further services after conclusion of the contract, these must be agreed and paid for separately. The same applies to the use of the holiday home by more people than agreed. If the guest wants to reduce the number of booked apartments, the service of the provider and / or the length of stay after the conclusion of the contract, the provider can make his consent dependent on an increase in the price for the apartment and / or our other services.

(2) The guest has to pay the accommodation fee and the prices agreed or applicable for the other services used. This also applies to services and expenses that the provider has provided for third parties, but which the guest has caused.

(3) The total amount is to be transferred to the account of the provider immediately after the booking confirmation. The guest bears all costs of the payment, especially in the case of bank transfers from abroad. The provider accepts payments via Paypal, credit cards (VISA, Mastercard, American Express), SEPA direct debit, Giropay and Alipay. The guest consents to the storage of the credit card data and a cover request. Cash payments must be agreed separately.

(4) If the payment according to §3 is not received by the provider within five working days of the booking confirmation, the guest is in default. The provider is then entitled to demand the applicable statutory default interest, whereby he is free to provide evidence of higher damage.

(4) On the agreed departure date, the apartment must be vacated and made available to the provider no later than 11:00 a.m. Dishes, cutlery, glasses, etc. must be cleaned and given away beforehand. Thereafter, due to the delay in vacating the apartment, the provider can charge 50% of the full accommodation price (list price) for use beyond the contract until 6:00 p.m., and 90% from 6:00 p.m. This does not justify contractual claims by the guest. He is free to prove that the provider has no or a significantly lower claim to usage fee.


§ 5 Resignation of the guest (cancellation, cancellation) / failure to use the services of the provider (no show)

(1) Withdrawal by the guest from the contract concluded with the provider is only possible, irrespective of any right of withdrawal under the provisions on distance selling, if a right of withdrawal has been expressly agreed in the contract, another statutory right of withdrawal exists or if the provider has canceled the contract expressly agrees. The agreement of a right of withdrawal as well as any consent to a contract cancellation should be made in writing.

(2) The guest can withdraw from the contract up to 14 days before the agreed arrival date without triggering payment or compensation claims by the provider. The guest's right of withdrawal expires if he does not exercise his right to withdraw from the provider by this date.

(3) If a contractual right of withdrawal has already expired, there is also no statutory right of withdrawal, withdrawal or termination, or if such a right has already expired by the expiry of the deadline and the provider does not agree to a termination of the contract, the provider retains the right to the agreed remuneration despite not making use of the Services. The provider has to credit the income from renting the holiday home to other parties as well as the saved expenses. If the holiday home is not rented to someone else, the provider can apply a flat rate deduction for saved expenses. In this case, the guest is obliged to pay 90% of the contractually agreed price for an overnight stay with or without breakfast as well as for all-inclusive arrangements with external services. The guest is free to prove that the aforementioned claim did not arise or did not arise in the required amount.


§ 6 Resignation of the provider

(1) If it has been agreed that the guest can withdraw from the contract free of charge within a certain period of time, the provider is entitled to withdraw from the contract during this period if there are inquiries from other guests about the contractually booked apartment and the guest on request of the provider waived his right to withdraw with a reasonable deadline.

(2) If an agreed or requested advance payment or security deposit is not made even after a reasonable grace period set by the provider has expired, the provider is also entitled to withdraw from the contract.

(3) Furthermore, the provider is entitled to extraordinarily withdraw from the contract for an objectively justified reason, in particular if

  • Force majeure or other circumstances for which the provider is not responsible make it impossible to fulfill the contract;
  • Apartments are culpably booked with misleading or false information or with concealment of essential facts; The identity of the guest, solvency or the purpose of the stay can be essential;

  • the purpose or the cause of the stay is illegal;

  • there is unauthorized subletting or re-letting or use contrary to the contract (cf. § 1 para. 2) or use by persons not listed in the booking (cf. § 3 para. 1 sentence 2);
  • there is a disturbance of domestic peace by the guest.

(4) The justified resignation of the provider does not justify a claim of the guest for damages.
