                          Additional information about rental rates

                          Fees:

                          • Refundable Damage Deposit £300
                          • cleaning+management fee £190
                          • Taxes Not included

                          Notes:

                          You might wonder about the high cleaning + management fee. It actually makes long stay more attractive. Twelve nights should have a lower nightly rate than one, right? That's why a management fee applies and the room charge has been adjusted to a lower level accordingly.

                          "My standard rate" is usually "and up", depending on existing bookings, public holidays, season and many other aspects.


                          Cancellation policy:
