Vacation / Retreat / Sabbatical Bookings
By completing an on-line reservation/booking and accepting these terms and conditions, or by placing your booking over the telephone, or by email or by signing and posting/faxing a booking form, or by making payment against an invoice from us, you accept these Terms and Conditions as a binding contract between the House Of Blessings Renewal Center on behalf of yourself and any other members of your booking. The House Of Blessings Renewal Center cannot accept your booking without a completed online reservation, or your verbal confirmation or request to proceed given over the telephone or in writing by email or land mail. A written/emailed confirmation sent to you by the House Of Blessings Renewal Center means the House Of Blessings Renewal Center has accepted your booking.
Email Address & Telephone
It is vital that we have a valid email address. If you change this you should inform us immediately. We correspond by email. Once your booking has been made and we have received your full payment, all further correspondence is by email unless otherwise necessary. We will also email you all of the information that you’ll require to get to our location. We also require a mobile phone so we can contact you during your stay.
Payment, Reservation & Deposit
Upon booking and confirmation that your requested dates for your chosen vacation/sabbatical/rest are available we charge 100% of the price. This is taken in good faith. If you have chosen a non-refundable option for a reduced price, please note that your cancellation will be considered a donation to the House of Blessings Renewal Center, which is a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation. Once payment has been paid it secures your dates. We cannot guarantee any reservation until your payment has been received. Payments are made via credit card through our secure site.
Arrival and Departure Times
You are free to arrive at any time on the first day. If your flight is delayed or canceled, you are required to contact the House Of Blessings Renewal Center by email or phone the contact number which will be provided before you travel. On your departure day please be ready to leave the center by 11 am unless otherwise agreed. If necessary we will make accommodations as needed to these times. Please let us know if that would be necessary.
Rights to Changes
The House Of Blessings Renewal Center reserves the right to amend the booking dates. This may be due to several reasons, not limited to but including, war, adverse weather conditions, riots and or matters concerning participants safety, operational circumstances such as damage caused by fire, or the villa/s becoming unusable due to utility company work or lack of services, leaks, repair work or any other such reason. In these circumstances, the booking may need to be adjusted accordingly. The House Of Blessings Renewal Center is not liable for any additional costs or losses that may be incurred by the client due to the change of booking. This includes, but is not limited to, any extra hotel reservations or car rentals, or the cost of non-refundable airline tickets. Situations may arise which, in our opinion, make it necessary for us to alter the normal booking schedule. We advise that your travel insurance covers holiday curtailment.
In the event before your arrival or during your stay your choice of room becomes unavailable or unusable for any reason we reserve the right to offer you an alternative room of the same level of quality or to refund all monies paid to date and cancel the booking. We reserve this right in the case of availability clashes, unexpected, unforeseen, or uncontrollable situations. Should the House Of Blessings Renewal Center successfully be able to you offer a similar room, a pro-rated refund for the difference will be refunded if the room offered is a lower cost for the same period. If the House Of Blessings Renewal Center is not able to offer a similar room then a full refund of monies paid will be returned, or in the case that some time has been used already at the room before it becomes unavailable then a pro-rata refund will be given. This constitutes the maximum liability of the House Of Blessings Renewal Center. The House Of Blessings Renewal Center is not responsible for any other expense or costs incurred including rearranging or canceling flights or car hire. We strongly recommend holiday insurance cover.
