Bookings and cancellation policy. 
By booking, you agree to the terms and conditions. The full amount is due when booking. The guest can cancel free of charge until 14 days before arrival. The guest will be charged the total price of the reservation if they cancel in the 14 days before arrival, there may be a possibility of postponement within the same calendar year.
