These Booking Conditions set out the terms and conditions upon which Masalini (Proprietary) Limited ("Masalini") make properties available for use by Occupants. All Occupants staying at the properties are respectfully requested to familiarise themselves with these Booking Conditions. One member of your party, the Client, will be required to sign the Booking Form acknowledging and agreeing to these Booking Conditions upon making and confirming the Rental Booking. Some of the properties have their own specific house rules or regulations set by the Property Owner or the “Body Corporate” housing association in which case you will be provided with a copy of these separately. You and the Occupants are requested to comply with any such provisions, which form part of this agreement.
2. Making a booking and paying a deposit
In order to make a Rental Booking, we require your details and a confirmation deposit ("Confirmation Deposit"). No agreement exists between you and Masalini and/or the Property Owner until we have received the Confirmation Deposit (in cleared funds in its bank account) of 50 % and your signed and completed the Booking Form. We will confirm your Rental Booking in writing. Payment can be made by bank transfer to the bank account detailed on the Booking Form (payment confirmation should be emailed or faxed to our office).
3. Payment of balance
The remaining balance ("Balance") of 50 % must be paid by the due date which is usually nine weeks before your arrival, but may be varied as set out on the Booking Form. Payment may be made by bank transfer or by credit card, in which case a surcharge is payable. If the Balance has not been paid by the required date Masalini shall be entitled, but not obliged, to cancel your Rental Booking and retain the full deposit. If your Rental Booking is made within eight weeks of your arrival, you will generally be required to pay the Total Cost at the time of the booking unless otherwise advised. Some Property Owners require full payment of the Total Cost before Confirmation will be made, in which case the Addendum is applicable.
4. Security Deposit
You have been notified of the separate security deposit that will be required in addition to the Total Cost ("Security Deposit"). The standard security deposit is ZAR20 000.00 unless otherwise stated. This is held by the Agent or Masalini. The Security Deposit will be held against the cost of any damage or breakages to the Property or its contents, as well as any telephone charge/lost keys. Any charges to be deducted from the Security Deposit will be notified to you within 14 days of the end of the rental period, after which the remainder of the Security Deposit shall be returned. Please note that we will charge a 5% administration fee on any damages or breakages.
5. Cleaning service
You will be informed of the level of cleaning service included in the Total Cost prior to the confirmation of the Rental Booking. Please indicate on the Booking Form if you require additional cleaning service and we will confirm availability and the cost, as this may not be possible to arrange on short notice during your stay. The Cleaning Service does not extend to personal laundry and cooking for Occupants. Local laundry services are available. We can provide you with the contact details of private caterers on request when you book. If applicable, personal laundry and ironing services shall be charged on a per item basis. Please make enquiries before using personal laundry and ironing services at the Property.
6. Other services included in rental cost
Unless otherwise advised, the Total Cost includes electricity, gas(where relevant), water, municipal rates and levies, telephone and internet line rental charges, satellite TV subscription, pool cleaning and garden services. The value of the electricity included is sometimes capped to a reasonable amount. You will be notified of the cap and you will be charged for any usage in excess thereof. Such arrangements will be brought to you attention in advance.
7. Arrival and Departure times
Check in time is at 2pm on the Arrival Date and check out time is at 10am on the Departure Date ("Rental Booking
Period"). Requests for an early check-in (before 2pm) or later departure (after 10 am) are always subject to the availability and convenience of our staff. In order to guarantee a check-in and/or check-out at times other than those set out above, an additional charge of 50% of one nights rental cost for the Property will be payable in advance. You will be provided with directions and instructions for the check–in and check-out procedure separately. For arrivals after 7pm or before 7am an additional after-hours check-in fee of ZAR300.00 will also be required.
8. Cancellation by you
If you wish to cancel your Rental Booking the person who signed the Booking Form must notify us in writing ("Cancellation
Notice"). Your Cancellation Notice will be effective from the date we receive it. On cancellation nine weeks or more before the Rental Booking we will be entitled to retain the Confirmation Deposit; and nine weeks or less before the Rental Booking 100% of the Total Cost shall be retained. You hereby agree and acknowledge that this is reasonable, in light of the fact that the chances of re-advertising and/or remarketing the Property and finding another rental booking are slight, and that the retention of the Confirmation Deposit or Total Cost is a genuine, reasonable and fair pre-estimate of the loss and/or damages suffered.
9. Alterations and cancellations by us
It is unlikely that we will have to make any changes to the Rental Booking once it has been confirmed. If this does happen we will let you know as soon as possible. If, for any reason beyond our control, we are unable to provide you with the Property you have booked, we reserve the right to transfer you to a similar property. If this is not possible or you do not wish to be transferred, we agree to cancel the Rental Booking and refund you with the amount you have paid to us for the Property. Please note that we will not be liable for any cancellation charges for travel arrangements or any further claims by you or anyone else in your party, other than as set out above, and you indemnify accordingly.
Unfortunately most of the properties we feature are not particularly child friendly and many have architectural and
physical features of concern for Occupants with younger children, such as balconies, split level terraces with steep drops and unfenced pools. Occupants staying with children do so at their own risk and are urged to take all due care and attention during their stay, and in this regard, the Occupants, their invitees and their respective children shall have no claim against Masalini and/or the Property Owner for any personal injury, any loss of any nature, costs, damages, legal fees and the like. If you require further information on the suitability of a particular property for children you are requested to bring this to our attention prior to paying the Confirmation Deposit. In the event that you have asked Masalini to
arrange for the installation of baby gates, baby proofing or any safety devices or equipment for the protection of any children, you should note that Masalini will arrange such installation and or supply of such devices and/or equipment on your behalf. Masalini, its agents, directors and staff take no responsibility, make no representations, give no warranties of any nature whatsoever in relation to any such devices and/or equipment. You undertake to satisfy yourself that any such devices and/or equipment is satisfactory and suitable for the purpose for which they are installed and/or supplied.
11. Swimming pools
Where properties feature a swimming pool, these are to be used entirely at your own risk and unless otherwise advised these are not supervised in any way or equipped with child safety-nets or fences. Pools are also not heated (unless advised) so are only suitable for use in summer. Pools are generally serviced twice weekly and while we will endeavour to arrange additional cleaning services if required during your stay this is not always possible on weekends and holidays and we cannot always guarantee pools remaining completely clean during occasional periods of extreme weather
12. Telephone and Internet service
Most of our properties have both telephone and data access for Occupants’ use, but please ask about this if it is
important to you. These services are less reliable and the data speed is generally slower than in Europe and the US. We will do our best to assist with any technical problems. All phone calls you make will be charged and in most properties can be paid for either at the time of departure or will be notified to you within 14 days. Data usage is generally capped at 1Gig thereafter a charge will be issued for each further gig.
13. Use of Property
Unless otherwise agreed prior to booking, the Property may only be used as private rental holiday accommodation and not for any photographic or film location work or as a venue for any function, wedding, party or event involving anyone other than the Occupants entitled to sleep at the Property as notified to Masalini on Booking Form. Where Masalini becomes aware of any unauthorised use of the Property it shall be entitled to require such usage to cease immediately and/or terminate the Rental Booking and require Occupants to leave. In these circumstances Masalini may also be entitled to charge an additional fee for the unauthorised event, such fee to be calculated reasonably at its discretion depending on the nature of the event and to be recovered if necessary from the Security Deposit.
14. Maximum number of Occupants
The names of all the Occupants are set out in the Booking Form and no other person may occupy or reside at the
properties at any time without Masalini's prior written consent. Only those Occupants may use the Property and under no circumstances may the total number of Occupants sleeping at the Property exceed the maximum number stipulated. Guests should only sleep on the beds provided, though where applicable sofa beds may be used for children under 16 by prior arrangement. We are entitled to require you and the Occupants to vacate the Property if the conditions set out in paragraph 13 and paragraph 14 are breached. In addition to being entitled to require you and the Occupants to vacate the Property, we shall also be entitled to charge a pro-rata rate in the event that persons other than those on the Booking Form occupy, reside at or sleep at the Property. These entitlements shall be exercised and/or enforced at our sole discretion. No pets are permitted on the Property.
The Client is ultimately responsible for the conduct of everyone using the Property during the Rental Booking Period. If Occupant or invitee behaves in an unacceptable manner by civilised standards the entire party may be required by the Property Owner to immediately vacate the Property on notice. It is not considered acceptable behaviour for these
purposes to make excessive noise including playing music loudly especially after 11pm at night and such behaviour will not be tolerated as many of the properties are in quiet residential areas. You are respectfully required to comply with any reasonable requests or instructions that may be provided to you either prior or during your stay in the form of “house rules” prepared by or on behalf of the Property Owner or body corporate.
Unless otherwise advised the interior the Properties is deemed “no smoking” areas and Occupants are kindly requested to refrain from smoking inside the Property.
It is your responsibility, and that of each of the Occupants (a) to pay for any losses or damages to the Property, however caused (reasonable wear and tear excluded) (b) to take good care of the Property and leave it in a clean and tidy
condition at the end of the Rental Booking Period (c) to permit the Property Owner access to the Property on reasonable notice(d) not to part with possession of the Property, or share it, other than with members of the party named on the Booking Form and (e) not to cause an annoyance or become a nuisance to occupants of adjoining properties, and (f) to comply with an reasonable instructions that may be provided to prior to or during your stay in the form of “house rules” prepared by or on behalf of the Property Owner or body corporate.
18. Property Descriptions
The description of the Property used on our web site or otherwise provided to you is made in good faith and is believed to be accurate. We cannot, however, be held responsible for any alterations or modifications made to the Property without our knowledge.
19. Complaints and problems during your stay
If you have any complaints or problems during the Rental Booking Period, please notify us as soon as possible so that the problem can be remedied. We and the Property Owners are not responsible for disturbances, failures or malfunctions out of our respective control, as well as the failure of services supplied by the municipality, services supplied by third party data and telephony suppliers, pool equipment malfunctions, appliance malfunctions and/or neighbour, construction or other nuisances. We will make every effort to assist with the resolution of such problems as soon as we are notified of them. We emphasise the importance of bringing complaints or problems to our immediate attention as we cannot assist with or remedy a complaint after the fact. If you vacate or abandon the Property during the Rental Booking Period
without notice, you forfeit any claim to compensation, assistance and/or reimbursement if applicable.
20. Emergency Call-outs
You will be given an emergency after-hours mobile phone number staffed by a Masalini representative to assist with any urgent maintenance work or other emergency issues while our offices are closed. We will make every effort to assist with resolving issues of an urgent nature but it will not always be possible to resolve issues outside regular working hours, at weekends and/or on public holidays. If you have an emergency of your own doing requiring after hours assistance of Masalini, for example losing the keys or locking yourselves out of the Property, you will be required to pay an emergency call-out charge of ZAR300.00.
21. Breach of contract
If any of these Conditions are breached by you or any of Occupants or any of their guests or invitees, we reserve the rightto re-enter the Property and terminate the Rental Booking without prejudice to the other rights and remedies of the property Owner.
We and our Property Owners will not accept liability for any act, neglect or default for any accident, damage, loss, injury,expense or inconvenience, whether to person or property, which any of the Occupants or any of their guests or inviteesmay suffer or incur arising out of, or in any way connected with, the Rental Booking.
All Occupants are strongly advised to arrange comprehensive insurance cover against travel and other related risks as any loss or damage including theft of personal items cannot be claimed against the Property Owner’s insurance. It is the responsibility of all of the Occupants to fully insure themselves and their personal items and also to keep the properly secured by setting the alarm, securing all doors and windows and taking all prudent measures against harm, when in the property and when going out. (We strongly advised that Occupants' insurance cover is adequate to cover their loss, as Property Owner’s insurance does not extend to the loss of third parties.)
You and the other Occupants hereby undertake to activate the alarm when leaving the premises unattended for any period of time during the Rental Booking Period.
25. Authority to sign
You, being the person who completes and signs the Booking Form, warrant and undertake that you (a) are authorised to agree to and accept these Conditions on behalf of all the Occupants, including those substituted at a later date (b) are over eighteen years of age and an Occupant (c) take responsibility for all persons Occupying or visiting the Property during the Rental Booking Period and (d) will make all Occupants aware of the Booking Conditions and the consequences thereof.
26. Governing law and jurisdiction
The validity, construction and performance of these Booking Conditions shall be governed by South African law. It is agreed between you, the Occupants, and the Property Owner that, in terms of Section 45 of the Magistrate's Court of1944, the Magistrate's Court having jurisdiction in terms of Section 28 of the said Act shall have jurisdiction in respect of any
action to be instituted arising from or in relation to The Rental Booking. It shall nevertheless be entirely within the discretionof the owner of the Property and/or Masalini whether to proceed against you and/or the Occupants in such Magistrate'sCourt or in any other Court having competent jurisdiction.
