  11. Valid credit card details will be required on arrival as a security deposit for any apartment damage and/or balances, if deposit has not been taken by an Online Travel Agent.
  12. We understand that accidents can happen. You are liable to pay for the cost of any damages or breakages during your stay.  Please let us know of any breakages, loss of keys or damage as soon as it occurs. You are liable for the cost of any damage and loss of keys (€25 per set). By letting us know of any damage or loss as soon as it occurs, we can try to minimise this cost with you.  
  13. There is an additional tourist tax of €2 per person over 14 per night, to pay in cash on arrival, if you have not paid this before arrival.
  14. You are legally required to complete a registration form by the Austrian government. This document is sent to you as soon as a booking is made, and must be completed within a week of reservation. This must include details of all guests that are planning to stay. Please refer to our privacy policy for how this data will be used.
  15. Total price includes one set of linen and towels per person per stay, and final cleaning charge.  Additional linen and towels are available upon request for an additional charge.
  16. Whilst a final cleaning charge is included in the total cost, this covers cleaning of floors and bathrooms and linen and towels. We expect you to leave the apartment in the same condition as when you arrived. We reserve the right to charge for additional cleaning if necessary.
  17. Our standard minimum stay is 2 nights.  This does change depending on the season.
  18. The house is non smoking throughout. Guests are allowed to smoke on the balcony. If it is believed that guests have smoked in the apartments you will be asked to leave immediately and will be liable to a charge of €200 for deep cleaning.
  19. Dogs over 9 months old may be allowed, upon request, with a maximum of 1 dog per apartment. There is an additional charge of €25 per stay per pet.  Please do not let your dog on the furniture. There will be additional charges levied if pets have been allowed on furniture to cover the cost of the additional cleaning.  Dogs should not be left in the apartment on their own.
  20. We have a travel cot available for use by guests, for your convenience. If you request to use this, it is at your own risk. Please check you are happy that it is safe and has been put up correctly. We are not responsible for any accidents or incidents due to the use of the cot.
  21. We ask you to be respectful of other guests, and our neighbours. Any excessive noise, or disruptive behaviour may result in asking for you to leave, without refund.
  22. Check in is from 3pm – 8pm and check out is by 10am. We do have a room available to leave your luggage and change if you are arriving or leaving outside of these times. Please enquire about this service.  It may be possible to check in and out outside of these times, for an additional cost, and subject to availability.  Please enquire about this.
  23. During your stay we reserve the right to enter the accommodation at any time for reasonable purpose (housekeeping, watering balcony flowers, maintenance or repairs, inspection).
  24. Maximum occupancy limits are strictly enforced. If maximum occupancy is exceeded, you may be required to check out immediately without refund or adjustment.
  25. The pathway in the parking area is uneven and road up to the house and parking area can be icy in winter months, and it is possible that snow may fall from the roofs of properties. Please ensure you take adequate precautions to remain safe and avoid injury. We cannot be held responsible for any injuries incurred as a result.
  26. Families with children are welcomed! No matter how much care is taken, the apartment and the house can never be completely childproof. The owners cannot be held responsible for any accidents occurring within the apartment or the grounds of the house. It is the parent’s responsibility to ensure their children are safe and supervised at all times.
  27. We do everything necessary to keep all equipment in the apartment in good working order. However, it is impossible to guarantee that all appliances, facilities, public utilities, etc. will be in working order at all times. We endeavour to correct reported problems, within the realms of our control, as quickly as possible. No refunds will be granted for maintenance or utility supply problems.
  28. Electric Cars – Unfortunately we do not have a facility to charge electric cars, and for safety and insurance purposes, no charging of electric cars is allowed on the property. The nearest electric car chargers are in Bischofshofen.
  29. We hope you enjoy your stay with us at Haus Schneeberg, and remember we are here to help you enjoy your holiday, and make the most of your stay!
