TERMS & CONDITIONS

Terms of Use

Please read your Vacation Rental Agreement carefully before you begin your vacation. Any monies received by Kihei Kai Rental Assn. LLC (herein referred to as KKRA) for occupancy of Vacation Property indicated the acceptance of the terms of our Vacation Rental Agreement in full. All policies are strictly enforced. It is the responsibility of all guests and members of their party to be familiar with all policies pertaining to rental.

RENTER REQUIREMENTS: For legal and accounting purposes, the person placing the reservation must be the same as the credit/debit card holder. This person is considered to be the Guest. All other persons involved with the rental are considered to be the Guest's invitees, and all discussion regarding reservation, cancellation, and damage policies will be discussed with the Guest, not the Guest's invitees. The Guest understands that the KKRA rents to responsible adults over the age of 21 ONLY.

DOWN PAYMENT/ PAYMENT: A reservation can be made with a $300 down payment paid by credit card when the reservation is made. Full payment is charged 60 days prior to scheduled arrival date. The credit card must have an expiration date that extends beyond your stay. If a reservation is made less than 60 days prior to arrival, full payment is due when the reservation is made. Your Credit Card will be charged if additional cleaning is needed or damages to the premises and/or contents. A $35.00 service charge will be incurred for any return check. We are a Smoke Free Property. A $225 charge will be applied to your credit card for smoking in your unit to cover a Deep Clean. Smoking is not allowed anywhere on the Kihei Kai Property including the parking lot.

BALANCE PAYMENT: If no other payment is received 60 days prior to arrival, we will automatically run the balance on the credit card on file. Balance is due no later than 60 days prior to your arrival date. We can keep the balance payment on the same credit card used for the initial payment or you can call with a different card. A check or money order must be received at least 60 days prior to your arrival. Please send your check or money order with a signed copy of the rental agreement.

As a condition to the rental of all KKRA Properties, KKRA reserves the right to charge the Guest’s credit card for any and all uncovered Guest/Invitee caused losses and damages sustained to the Vacation Property throughout the duration of their period of occupancy. In the event of any uncovered Guest/Invitee-caused loss or damage to the Vacation Property, including, but not limited to, undue cleaning, eviction, service calls, service charges, fines/assessments, repairs or replacements, plus all applicable taxes, KKRA is hereby granted the right to charge the Guest's credit card. An itemized statement outlining all associated costs will be sent via regular or electronic mail to the address submitted by the Guest at such time as the reservation was booked. By written or electronic endorsement of this Agreement, the Guest hereby agrees to pay for all such charges, as defined above and on the proceeding pages.

ARRIVAL TIME: Check in is at 3 pm.

DEPARTURE TIME: Check out is at 11 am. Your prompt departure is appreciated so we can prepare the condo for any incoming guests. Late departures must be pre-arranged and will be charged an additional nightly rate.

CANCELLATIONS: Cancellations will be charged $200 if made up to 60 days before arrivals. You can reschedule up to 60 days before your arrival at no charge. Cancellations or reschedules made with less than 60 days’ notice will result in 100% loss of all payment. If we can replace your reservation and re book the dates, you can credit your full payment toward a future reservation, or we will refund 90% of the total payment. This loss can be avoided if Travel Protection Insurance was purchased and the reason for cancellation is covered under the travel insurance policy.

POWER/ WEATHER RELATED CANCELLATION: KKRA does NOT issue refunds due to acts of nature such as: weather, road conditions, power outages or forest fires, but Travel Protection Insurance does provide some protection against these instances. If the property is uninhabitable due to such circumstances and you did not purchase insurance, reservations can be rescheduled for future dates within one year of the reservation date.

VACATION RENTAL INSURANCE: KKRA offers Trip Cancellation and Travel Insurance. The plan is optional, but we strongly recommend it. In case of unforeseen events, this insurance helps protect your vacation investment. IF YOU CHOOSE NOT TO PURCHASE THIS COVERAGE, NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN WITHIN THE 60 DAY PERIOD. The insurance premium, 7% of the total, is non-refundable and non-transferable. For more information please visit kiheikai.rentalguardian.com.

Exceptions are made on an individual basis - please contact KKRA for prior approval. If there is excessive noise or music, any illegal activity, or evidence of violation of these policies, you may be asked to vacate the premise without any refund and additional charges may be assessed.
