TERMS AND CONDITIONS:
1. Our Mission: Here at the Boutique Beach Retreat, it is our mission to provide travelers an amazing place to relax and enjoy their time just steps from the beach in beautiful Treasure Island, Florida.
Our team always strives to be 5 star hosts! So, pack your beach gear and sunscreen. Sunny Florida awaits!
2. Booking. When you book a Listing, you are agreeing to pay all charges for your booking including the Listing price, applicable fees, taxes, and any other items identified during checkout (collectively, “Total Price”). You are also agreeing that Boutique Beach INC Payments may charge and collect any security deposit identified during checkout. When you receive the booking confirmation, a contract for Host Services (sometimes called a reservation in these Terms) is formed directly between you and Boutique Beach INC. The cancellation policy (see below) and any other rules, standards, policies, or requirements identified in the Listing or during checkout form part of your contract with the Host.
3. Accommodation Reservations. An Accommodation reservation is a limited license to enter, occupy, and use the Accommodation. The Host retains the right to re-enter the Accommodation during your stay, to the extent it is reasonably necessary, permitted and consistent with applicable law. If you stay past checkout, the Host has the right to make you leave in a manner consistent with applicable law, including by imposing reasonable overstay penalties. You may not exceed the maximum number of allowed Guests.
4. Cancellations, Travel Issues, and Refunds. In general, if as a Guest you cancel a reservation, the amount refunded to you is determined by the cancellation policy that applies to that reservation.
- Free cancellation within 48 hours of reservation if reservation made more than 7 days prior to check-in.
- Reservations made within 7 days prior to check in are non-refundable.
- Free cancellation if cancelled 30 days prior to arrival date.
- 50% refundable if cancelled 15 – 29 days prior to arrival.
- Non-refundable if cancelled less than 14 days prior to arrival.
5. Your Responsibilities. You are responsible and liable for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of anyone you invite to join or provide access to any Accommodation, or other Host Service. For example, this means: (i) you are responsible for leaving an Accommodation (and related personal property) in the condition it was in when you arrived, and (ii) you must act with integrity, treat others with respect, and comply with applicable laws at all times. If you are booking for an additional guest who is a minor or if you bring a minor to a Host Service, you must be legally authorized to act on behalf of the minor and you are solely responsible for the supervision of that minor.
YOUR ASSUMPTION OF RISK. You acknowledge that many activities carry inherent risks and agree that, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you assume the entire risk arising out of your access to and use of the Boutique Beach Retreat Platform and any Content, including your stay at any Accommodation, participation in any Experience, use of any other Host Service, or any other interaction you have with other Members whether in person or online. This means it is your responsibility to investigate to determine whether the accommodations and/or services are suitable for you. For example, Host Services may carry risk of illness, bodily injury, disability, or death, and you freely and willfully assume those risks by choosing to participate in those Host Services.
