House rules manual

This is the Villa Tzabcan house rules manual. Failure to respect the following points may result in penalties such as the loss of the deposit and/or cancellation of the reservation without the right to a refund. 

SAFE BOX AND ACCESS POINTS
Safety boxes are available on the property, and we strongly advise guests to store all valuable items, including but not limited to documents, passports, cash, and jewelry, in the safety boxes. Please ensure that all access points are locked when exiting the villa, during check-in you will be able to set up your own pin number for the safe boxes, meaning, no one else will have access to them.
Neither the company, the property, nor the staff will be responsible for the loss of any valuables. If lost items are found, shipping costs will be covered by the guest.

CHECK-IN AND CHECK-OUT TIME
Check-out time is at 11:00 a.m. The day before your check-out, our team will inquire about your departure time to ensure a seamless and hassle-free check-out process. If you require a late check-out, we kindly request that you request it in advance and that it be approved by our concierge team. Late check-out is subject to availability and may incur an additional fee. Check-in time is at 4:00 pm. Before your check-in, our team will inquire about your arrival time to ensure that we are ready to welcome you to the property. If you require an early check-in, we kindly request that you request it in advance and that it be approved by our concierge team. Early check-in is subject to availability and may incur an additional fee. If the early check-in is not available there is always the chance to leave your luggage at the villa with the help of our concierge team, we do not hold responsibility for any items left at the villa before 4 pm.

VISITORS AND DISTURBING NOISES
Parties are strictly prohibited on the premises. Small gatherings are allowed with prior approval from the concierge team. All guests will receive the code to access the villa. This code is for their personal use only, and no one beyond the guests staying at the villa will be permitted to use it. Guests and their visitors must behave respectfully towards our neighbors, vendor team, and concierge staff. Guests are permitted to host a maximum of four visitors during their stay. Only guests registered on the reservation will be allowed to stay overnight at the property. To add a new guest who can stay overnight on the property and does not exceed the maximum capacity of the property, you may request it for an additional fee. The villa is situated in a residential area, and therefore excessive noise is not welcome at any time. We strictly prohibit excessive noise after 10:00 p.m., and violators may receive a warning, a visit from the local police, and eventually be evicted from the property should the noise persist.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            The guest should allow our maintenance and cleaning staff access when it’s scheduled. All staff members will wear the company uniform, and guests should not grant access to anyone who does not have a uniform. In case of receiving courtesy cleanings, the host will provide general cleaning of the kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, and common areas. Bed linens and towels are changed every third day.

BED LINENS AND TOWELS                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Bed linens and towels are changed every third day. The towels are for exclusive use inside the villa and cannot be carried elsewhere. If there is a lack of towels at the end of the stay, they will be charged. Any towels or linens stained with dye, bronzer, or any other product that cannot be removed by cleaning will result in additional charges. It is forbidden to go to bed or sit on interior furniture with suntan lotions, oils, bronzer, or makeup on your body. Additionally, please avoid using bath towels to remove these products from your body, as this can permanently stain fabrics and sheets. Any damage resulting from these actions may result in additional charges for replacement

BATHROOMS
Septic tanks cannot handle constant paper build up. Please assist us by not putting any toilet paper directly into the toilet, instead place it in the trash can available next to it. Failure to comply may result in an additional fee of USD $50 if plumbing services are needed. Please note, should this matter occur outside of normal working hours, it will only be addressed the following day.

APPLIANCES AND FURNITURE DAMAGE
Guests must report any damage discovered or caused during their stay at the villa. Any damage, whether caused, discovered or newly occurring, that is not reported to the owner may result in a fee being charged to the guest as compensation for repair or replacement of the damage. Personal governance and an expectation of safe, respectful behavior are the sole responsibility of each guest staying in the villa.

Failure to comply with the law is grounds for immediate eviction from the property without a refund of unused nights. CHANCE EVENTS Please note that Tulum is a developing town, and there may occasionally be electricity blackouts. We will always do our best to resolve any issues promptly, but some situations may be beyond our control. In the event of severe weather or a catastrophic occurrence, the company reserves the right to access the property without notice to prepare the villa or mitigate any damages that have already occurred or may occur. The company also reserves the right to request that guests vacate the property to ensure their safety, mitigate damages or potential damages, and/or protect the house with barriers or other safety measures deemed necessary. If guests are required to vacate the property at the company’s request, they will be compensated for any unused days resulting directly from the occurrence. The company is not responsible for the loss of power, water, or Wi-Fi signal due to issues with service providers, severe weather, catastrophic events, or maintenance/repairs in the area that are beyond our control.
