  • Your villa rental includes accommodation as booked, including GAT tax and services, (ie) villa, staff, water, electricity and Internet.

  • Studio Apartment is self-sufficient with housekeeping and caretaker only (no cook)—full staff services if rented with villa.
  • To place a booking with us, the lead guest must be at least 21 years of age.
  • A 50% deposit is required at booking.   Once received and processed, you will receive notification that your booking is confirmed for the dates requested.  The balance of your rental is due 60 days prior to arrival (90 days prior for holidays such as Christmas/New Year’s).  If your booking is within 60 days of arrival full payment is required at time of booking.
  • If the guest needs to cancel the booking please advise the owner immediately via email at booking@butterflyhillvilla.com

CANCELLATION DUE TO COVID: 

Reservations made after March 14, 2020 are no longer covered under our extenuating circumstances policy, except where the guest or host is currently sick with COVID-19.  COVID-19 related circumstances not covered include: transportation disruptions and cancellations; travel advisories and restrictions; health advisories and quarantines; changes to applicable law; and other government mandates—like evacuation orders, border closures, prohibitions on short-term rentals, and shelter-in-place requirements. Our regular cancellation policy will apply as usual.

After the declaration of COVID-19 as a global pandemic by the World Health Organization, the extenuating circumstances policy no longer applies because COVID-19 and its consequences are no longer unforeseen or unexpected.

It is recommended guests purchase travel and/or cancellation insurance to cover any fees or loses.

  • In the unlikely event that circumstances beyond the owners control necessitate the cancellation of the booking, the owner reserves the right to cancel any bookings at that time and will only be liable to refund monies already paid by the guest.
