4. Scope and Nature of Our Services
These Terms and Conditions govern contracts for the rental use of apartments for lodging purposes, as well as other goods and services rendered for the customer. The customer’s general Terms and Conditions shall apply only if these are previously expressly agreed to in writing.
5. Conclusion of Contract
You will be deemed to have confirmed your booking, and accepted these terms and conditions, within 24 hours of us sending the Booking Confirmation email or when you send confirmation that you have received the Booking Confirmation email or when you make payment of all or part of the rental charge, whichever is the earliest.
All booking details are confirmed by us via a Booking Confirmation email and are deemed to have been accepted by you unless, within 24 hours of the sending of the Booking Confirmation email, you inform us by email that you wish to modify or cancel the booking arrangements.
The parties to the contract are Grand Harbour View and the customer. If a third party placed the order on behalf of the customer, then that party shall be liable vis-à-vis Grand Harbour View for all obligations arising from the accommodation contract as joint and several debtor together with the customer, insofar as Grand Harbour View has a corresponding statement by the third party.
6. Services, Prices and Payment Terms
Grand Harbour View is obligated to keep the rooms reserved by the customer available and to render the agreed services once booking is confirmed in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
All prices are quoted in EURO and, unless otherwise specified, the prices quoted exclude VAT at the prevailing MT rate. All prices are based on costs prevailing at the time of quotation and may be subject to change.
The customer is obligated to pay the applicable or agreed prices for rooms provided and for other services used. This shall also apply to the apartment’s services and outlays to third parties caused by the customer. Moreover, the apartment may change prices if the customer later wishes to make changes in the number of reserved rooms, the apartment’s services, or the length of guests’ stay, and Grand Harbour View consents to such changes.
Grand Harbour View is entitled to require a reasonable advance payment or security deposit upon conclusion of the contract or thereafter. The amount of the advance payment and payment dates may be agreed in writing in the contract. All the fees payable in accordance with the contract terms shall be settled in full up to forty-two (42) days prior to arrival date. If advance payment or full settlement are not received within the grace period set by Grand Harbour View, then Grand Harbour View is entitled to cancel the contract.
Grand Harbour View is allowed to assign, transfer, and subcontract its rights and/or obligations under these Terms without any notification. However, you are not allowed to assign, transfer, or subcontract any of your rights and/or obligations under these Terms.
Guest agrees to provide Grand Harbour View with a valid credit card for the duration of the reservation up to three business days following departure. Guest is providing the credit card as a guarantee. Guest certifies that he/she has read and agrees to abide by the terms of this agreement, and agrees to pay and authorise Grand Harbour View to charge any rental amounts, taxes, security deposits, extra cleaning, missing property, additional service charges and any damages not covered under the Security Deposit Protection and fines or charges pertaining to violations of the rental agreement. Guest understands that all credit card sales are final. Should manager be unable to recover costs from the credit card on file, Guest is responsible to provide an alternative method of reimbursement within 48 hours of notification.
7. Cancellation/No Show
Cancellation by the guest of the contract concluded with Grand Harbour View requires Grand Harbour View’s written consent. It is the guest’s responsibility to verify receipt and confirmation in writing from Grand Harbour View. If written consent is not given, then the price agreed in the contract must be paid even if the customer does not avail himself of the contractual services.
For notice received more than forty-two (42) days prior to the check-in date, refund 100% of payments received, less 3% of the rental and tax amounts.
For notice received less than forty-two (42) days prior to check- in date, Guest will be liable for 100% of the contracted amount and tax less cleaning fees and Vacation Rental Damage Protection.
All refunds will be processed within 7 business days of written consent.

There are no refunds for early departures, delayed arrivals, construction activity, inclement weather or reduction in the number of nights reserved for any reason.
Moreover, Grand Harbour View is entitled to effect extraordinary cancellation of the contract for a materially justifiable cause, e.g. if
• force majeure or other circumstances for which Grand Harbour View is not responsible make it impossible to fulfil the contract;
• rooms are reserved with misleading or false information regarding material facts, such as the identity of the customer or the purpose;
• Grand Harbour View has justified cause to believe that use of the apartment’s services might jeopardise its security or public reputation, without being attributable to the apartment’s sphere of control or organisation;
The customer can derive no right to compensation from justified cancellation.

Grand Harbour View shall not be liable to Guest for damages, and no refunds will be given for such failures.
