Villa rental terms and conditions

These terms and conditions are binding to both parties when the customer has made a reservation. The person reserving a villa must be in full power.

Reservations and terms of payment

When the customer has made a reservation, she/he will receive an invoice consisting of driving instructions to the accommodation site, information on the location of the key and an account transfer form for paying the rent. All notification regarding the invoice shall be submitted within seven days of the date of the invoice. When paying the rent, the reference number included in the bank transfer must be used. Failing to pay does not constitute a cancellation!

Lehmonkärki has the right to cancel the reservation if the payment has not been made by the due date. If the reservation starts less than 21 days after the reservation date, the payment must be made in full right after having made the reservation to the bank account specified. The customer must show a payment receipt or a voucher when the key is handed over. A reservation starting less than 24 hours from the reservation time can only be made onsite at Lehmonkärki by cash or with a Finnish cash card.


A cancellation must ALWAYS be sent in writing to Lehmonkärki (e-mail or a letter). If the customer cancels the reservation:
• 28 days or more before starting of the rental period, the villa rent minus a cancellation fee (20% of the price of the villa rent) will be returned to the customer.
• 28 days or less before the start of the rental period no payments made by the client
will be refunded.

A cancellation is considered valid as of the moment the cancellation has arrived at Lehmonkärki. If the customer can prove that a cancellation has been made and sent to the correct address at the correct time, the cancellation will be approved even if it were late or did not arrive at all. If a cancellation is made because the customer or their next of kin falling acutely ill, having an accident or dying, the customer is entitled to receive the money back, except for the cancellation costs 20% of the price of the villa rent. The cancellation must be done immediately after having been notified of the illness, accident or death. A medical certificate or another reliable proof regarding the cancellation must be delivered to Lehmonkärki at the latest 14 days after the cancellation is made. The cancellation must be done before the start of the rental period. If the customer decides to change their holiday site or the time of their holiday, it will be considered as a cancellation of the previous reservation and a new reservation. If a cancellation is done later than 48 hours before the start of the rental period or during the rental period, the payment already made by the customer will not be refunded.

Cancellations due to travel restrictions caused by the global or local COVID-19 (coronavirus) epidemic or pandemic

If a booking is cancelled less than 28 days before the start of, or during the stay on the grounds that the client is unable to arrive at the destination at the time of the booking owing to travel restrictions imposed by the Government of the client’s country of departure, or by Finland as the destination’s country of location, due to an epidemic or pandemic, no payments made by the client will be refunded. Travel restrictions are not classified as a force majeure event because any international/national travel restrictions imposed due to
an epidemic/pandemic are not unforeseen.

When booking a cottage, the client understands and agrees to the standard terms and conditions of booking and cancellation of Lehmonkärki being applicable to cancellations and no-show situations. The aforementioned shall apply also in case the client is unable to reach Finland due to cancelled or rescheduled flights. When booking a cottage, the client is aware of the fact that airlines may cancel or reschedule flights due to an epidemic or pandemic and that this does not constitute a force majeure event because the situation in question is not unforeseen.

The customer must clean the villa during their holiday and when leaving, unless agreed to the contrary (by e-mail). By cleaning we mean bringing the garbage away into garbage containers outside the villa, washing the dishes with dishwasher (except villas 10-12) and removing the visible stains (coffee, juice etc) from the floors and other surfaces.

The temperature of the outdoor pool may be cool (32-37 ° C) on the day of arrival due to the water change. We do not recommend using the whirlpool function if the pool water feels cool as it will further cool the water temperature. The use of the whirlpool function should be limited in cold weather. Customers should read the instructions for use of the pools carefully before using the pools.

In the wintertime barbeque grills on the terrace are not in use.
