Terms and Conditions

These General Terms and Conditions apply to reservations and agreements with regard to the holiday home Villa Meddo, Hilgeloweg 2 14, 7041BG Winterswijk Meddo

In these General Terms and Conditions, the term 'tenant' is understood to mean: the person who enters into an agreement with us regarding the rental of the holiday home.

These General Terms and Conditions apply regardless of your (prior) reference to any own terms and conditions or to other general terms and conditions. We disclaim any Terms and Conditions to which you refer or which are used by you.

Agreements deviating from these General Terms and Conditions are only valid if agreed in writing.


We only accept reservations from persons who are 22 years or older. Reservations by persons younger than that age are therefore not valid.

After you have made a reservation, you will receive an invoice from us within 5 days. We ask you to check these documents for accuracy and to notify us immediately of any inaccuracies. If you have not received a confirmation of receipt from us within 10 days after making the reservation, please contact us.

Down payment and payment

After receipt of the deposit, your reservation is final. We request that you transfer 40% of the rent to us within 14 days after the invoice date. The other 60% must be paid to us no later than 1 month before the arrival date. If your reservation is within 1 month before the arrival date, you must transfer 100% of the invoice amount to us at once upon receipt of the invoice.

You transfer the deposit and/or payment to IBAN: NL86 INGB 000 6180 864 in the name of MGDoedens, stating the invoice number.

By paying an installment of or the entire rental amount, you confirm that you have read and agree to the general terms and conditions. The rental ends automatically after the agreed period has expired.

In the event of late payment of the amounts invoiced to you, you will be in default immediately after the payment term has expired. In that case we reserve the right to cancel your reservation and dissolve the agreement.


The deposit is € 150.00. The deposit serves to guarantee damage and/or costs - in the broadest sense of the word - that we may suffer in the event of non-compliance with the obligations of the tenant as a good tenant and those who accompany the tenant.

The deposit must be paid together with the payment of the rent. In the event that the deposit is not paid, we are entitled to deny the tenant access to the holiday home. If you fail to pay the deposit, we are also entitled to dissolve the agreement with immediate effect.

The deposit or any remainder thereof will be refunded from us to the tenant after settlement of claims (damage to inventory/holiday home and/or other costs) within 14 days after departure. Any (further) claims for compensation will not be nullified by this refund.

Reception key and supervision

The tenant will receive the code of a key safe in which the house key is stored on the day of arrival by e-mail or text message and after payment of the full invoice amount. This code may not be transferred. The renter is never entitled to keep or duplicate the key for any reason whatsoever. Should the tenant do so anyway, the tenant will owe a fine of € 500, without prejudice to the actual costs. The key of the holiday home is made available to the tenant by us on loan. The key remains our property. In case of loss, theft or any other way of losing the key, the renter owes an amount of € 100.

There is a 'ring bell' at the front door of the house. This ring bell detects movement and makes an image and sound recording of the view from the front door. This recording will be kept and can be used as evidence in the event of a dispute.

All costs that arise because you do not deliver the house on time will be recovered from you. Goods found after your departure will be kept for you for a reasonable period of time, but we will not take any responsibility for this. Sending can be done at your expense.

If the tenant and/or other users have locked themselves out of the holiday home , € 25.00 will be charged. This is deducted from the refund of the deposit. As a check, we ask the tenant to identify himself before handing over the copy key.


Cancellation by the tenant must always be made in writing (by post or by e-mail). The following conditions apply to this:

  • Partial payments will not be returned in case of cancellation.
  • If canceled up to 42 days before the day of arrival, 25% of the rent is due.
  • If canceled up to 28 days before the day of arrival, 50% of the rent is due.
  • In case of cancellation from seven days up to the day of arrival, 100% of the rent is due.
  • If you have not arrived within 24 hours after the agreed date without further notice, this will be considered a cancellation and 100% of the rent will be due.
  • In case of cancellation on our part, any monies already paid will be refunded.
