Otherwise, you will have full access to the living room/dining room, kitchen and terrace. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in the rental agreement, in the event our apartment is not available for use during the period of your booking due to reasons, events, or circumstances beyond our control, we will apply due diligence and good faith efforts to locate a replacement property that equals or exceeds our apartment solely with respect to occupancy capacity (i.e., one bedroom for every two persons detailed in your booking), location and value. If such replacement property cannot be found and made available to you, we will immediately return (on a pro rata basis) all payments made by you, whereupon any agreement we have with you will be terminated and you and we will have no further obligations or liabilities in any manner pertaining such agreement.
