DEPOSIT TERMS

VERY IMPORTANT – MUST READ

Ghyd’s exclusive villas are operated, managed and maintained from us directly. As a result, we do require a security deposit and utilities charge.

The security deposit is required 30 days prior to your vacation in the amount of $150.00 (US dollars) per person. We ONLY accept checks and only deposit them if there is a need to do so.

Ghyd Villas are designed and hand picked with the intention of having a fantastic time! We understand things happen, things break and things get dirty. We’re not worried about the small stuff! We will only use the security deposit if something significant breaks and is in value of $200.00 (US dollars) or more. Don’t worry, it’s just a formality. If you want to hang from the chandelier, just make sure it doesn’t break! If, for any reason, we see the need to use the security deposit for any reason, we will be in contact with you prior to the use of any funds, and will only deduct the agreed upon amount. All checks are shredded and disposed of as soon as you return home and there is no reason for use.

Make all check payable to:
Ghyd, LLC.

UTILITIES USAGE TERMS

Costa Rica and Nicaragua do not have nuclear power plants. They generate most of the countries electricity from its abundant river sources which results in a much higher cost of electricity. This has has forced us to become creative in finding a solution that works for everyone. Since each group is different we have decided to incorporate two options to choose from.

UTILITIY PAYMENT OPTION 1

The first option is to receive a $200.00 (US dollars) credit towards the weekly electric bill and you only pay for the overage amount (i.e. if the weekly cost was $357.43, then you will only pay $157.43.)

Average cost for weekly power usage for less than eight people is $300-$500.

We recommend this option for our guests who don’t plan on spending a lot of  time in the villa.

Who is this option good for:

  • Groups of less than eight people
  • Groups who plans to leave the villa often
  • Aware of power usage

UTILITIY PAYMENT OPTION 2

We highly recommend this option.

The second option is to pay a one time fee of $400.00 (US dollars) for the week. This rate is for the entire group. We highly recommend this option for groups over eight people, with children, or plan on relaxing around the villa during your stay. This option gives you peace of mind to not worry about leaving the lights on.

Who is this option good for:

  • Large families
  • Groups who plan to stay close to the villa
  • Don’t want to worry
  • Stay up late
