The concerned apartments hereafter mentioned are exclusively used for vacation rental, as a temporary residence and for lessee’s use.

In case of non-payment on the agreed due dates or in case one of the clauses is broken, and 5 working days after a reminder via registered letter with no response, this agreement will be immediately terminated and the lessor is entitled to keep the deposit as first damages, according to Costa Rican law.

All rentals are controlled and checked by Ayana Luxury Homes. The advertising descriptions are true to reality and written in good faith. For any complaint, the lessee commits to inform Ayana Luxury Homes by email within 48hr. The lessee also commits to collaborate with Pearl in the sea to try to solve the issue. Without any written communication and express consent from Ayana Luxury Homes, the lessee leaving the rental before the agreed check-out date will lose the right to get a refund for his full stay. Complaints notified after the check-out date will waive the lessee’s right to get a refund. Ayana Luxury Homes reserves the right to reallocate another rental with similar or higher characteristics. If the lessee refuses the transfer, Ayana Luxury Homes will refund the amounts already paid, but the lessee will not be entitled to any additional compensation.

If during the stay, the lessor needs to have someone operate following the lessee’s request (sent by email), like maintenance companies (blocked drains, broken domestic appliances, broken glass…) and if the lessor’s responsibility is cleared, those operations will be charged.
Key loss: $50 (lock and keys replacement).

The rental is strictly reserved for the lessee and his family.
