Privacy Policy and Guest Agreement

You understand this is not your arrival/departure information but rules and regulations governing your accommodation.

Information for Airbnb guests: In cases where policies or agreements in the Airbnb rental contract conflict with the statements made in the Barsala Rental Agreement, the policies in the Airbnb agreement will supercede the statements made below (ex: clause II). The Guest agrees to settle all disputes and fees for violations to the rental contract promptly through Airbnb.

Please read very carefully as violations will result in additional fees and legal action as outlined in Exhibit A (the “Fees”):

Please respect the people that call this building home. Parties and noise complaints are taken VERY seriously. If a noise complaint occurs, guest will be notified via email or phone. If another noise complaint is received, guest will be immediately removed from the property without refund. If the police are called to a property for any reason relating to any disturbance, occupancy issues, noise, or lewd behavior, the Guest will be charged a fine of $2,000 in addition to the normal costs of rental and any damage to the property.

Except as described below, we do not sell, transfer or otherwise disclose, sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your Personal Information to outside parties. This statement does not include trusted third party service providers who assist us in administering and providing our services.

For each booking, we collect the guest’s government issued identification, facial images, full name, email address, mobile number, payment information, and birthdate. By providing such information to us, you consent and authorize us to obtain and transmit this information to our trusted third party partners for purposes of fraud prevention, conducting a public records search, processing payment transactions, or resolving payment disputes. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our policies, or protect our or others’ rights, property or for safety.

Upon request of the building owner, we will share any information the customer has provided to Barsala as well as the results of the search. No other information will be shared. Based upon the results of the background check, Barsala may solicit additional information from the guest, require a security deposit, cancel the guest’s reservation, or contact law enforcement. Any refusal to submit required information to Barsala will be considered an immediate cancellation of reservation by the Guest.

You authorize us to charge all applicable sums for the reservation and/or other purchases that you make through Barsala on the date that any such sum is due to the payment method specified in your check-in form or that you otherwise indicate when you submit such reservation with us. Additionally, a few days before your check-in Barsala may seek pre-authorization of your credit card account to verify that the credit card is valid and has the necessary funds or credit available to cover your reservation, any security deposit or other purchase, or any potential excessive damages, cleaning, unauthorized removal of housewares or other supplies, or unauthorized late checkouts or early check-ins that may apply. You authorize us to place a hold on such credit card for sums sufficient to cover any applicable fees that you owe us under this agreement and acknowledge that this hold may be held for up to 7 days following your check-out. To the extent that Barsala is charged any service fees in connection with your use of the applicable payment method, you shall be responsible for such fees. Please also note that while Barsala may release the pre-authorization hold on your credit card within 7 days after you check-out, the time it takes for the funds to return to your account may vary depending on your banking institution.

Barsala provides a credit for the full value of the canceled booking towards any future stay. The credit can be used anytime in any of Barsala’s properties within 24 months from the date of the cancelled reservation start date. Cancellations should be processed directly with Barsala through email, text or call. To be eligible for credit, Cancellations should be made prior to the time of arrival.

For longer stays that are paid monthly, the first month falls under Barsala's standard cancellation policy and, if canceled, Barsala will provide credit for the full value of the canceled booking toward a future stay. Subsequent months can be cancelled or modified for a full refund to the original payment method provided Barsala receives at least 30 days notice.

All maintenance issues should be reported immediately to Barsala by emailing [email protected]. If a maintenance issue occurs that cannot be fixed in a reasonable amount of time, and significantly affects the Guests stay, The Company reserves the right to refund at its discretion or relocate Guests to another property. Housekeeping issues are to be addressed immediately upon arrival, but in no way void this contract. Barsala must be contacted immediately and the situation will be assessed at that time.

The property is, unless otherwise noted on our website, equipped and set up as a fully furnished property that will include bedspreads, linens, blankets, pillows, towels, a standard equipped kitchen, TV(s), furnishings. FURNISHINGS AND FLOOR PLANS MAY DIFFER FROM PICTURES ON ADVERTISEMENTS. We may not have all the items you may be accustomed to having in your home. If there is a special type of item you are accustomed to using please provide for those items by bringing them with you. Occupancy is based on sleeping capacity; each property may not have ample dining/living room seating to match bed capacity. You should bring personal items such as bath soap, shampoo, and toiletries. Extra towels are always recommended for properties with hot tubs and/or swimming pools. We are not a hotel, and are unable to supply additional items like a hotel may be able to.

The Company provides complimentary wireless internet with all properties as a convenience for The Guest. If The Guest has any problems accessing the internet, please notify Barsala immediately. Please note that internet connectivity issues are outside of The Company’s control. While we will do our best to work with the Internet Service Providers to resolve connectivity issues as quickly as possible, we are at the mercy of the service providers to resolve issues. As this is a complimentary service, no refunds will be assessed for internet connectivity issues.

The Company does not provide refunds due to issues beyond The Company’s control such as weather. Please note that in some cities, not all properties have air conditioning. Please be sure to inquire whether or not your unit has A/C and the specific configuration (central vs wall) prior to your arrival. We also suggest consulting the local weather authorities prior to arrival.

The Company is not responsible for any personal effects of The Guest that may disappear from the suite. The Company maintains insurance on the structure and those items belonging to The Company. The Guest is responsible for insurance on all of guest’s personal items. The Guest will be fully responsible for all damage to the suite or contents during their stay. In the event that the suite becomes un-rentable through any action of The Guest, then The Guest agrees to pay the nightly rate as specified in the "Rates" section until the suite may be put back into a rentable condition, in addition to being responsible for any damage caused by Guest, their invites, or other persons. The Guest agrees to indemnify The Company and hold it harmless from any injury or damage resulting to The Guest, their invites, or other persons, their personal property, the suite, its contents, or the property, occurring in the suite itself or in any common areas including, but not limited to, stairways, parking lots, recreational areas, and swimming pools that may be used by The Guest, their invites, or other persons. The total liability to The Company from any loss to The Guest due to interruption of essential services, fire, or other occurrences that renders the suite unusable will be only those days of rental that The Guest has prepaid and not used.

The suite and associated common areas shall not be used for ANY unlawful or illegal purpose. The Guest agrees to keep the suite in a neat and orderly condition. No nails, screws, or other items are to be driven into any portion of the suite. Only the number of persons indicated on the front side of the "Check-In Statement" are allowed to occupy the suite. The suite is to be used for residential purposes only. No commercial, industrial, or retail activity can be conducted in the suite.

Barsala is not responsible for any amenities or services that are closed, out of service, or cannot be used for any reason, and monies will not be refunded for such events.

Barsala reserves the right at all times during your stay to enter and to permit other individuals to enter the suite at any time in the following circumstances or for the following purposes, subject to applicable law: (i) in response to your written or verbal request, upon your consent, or as necessary to provide the service to you; (ii) to investigate, address, or prevent any actual or reasonably suspected or foreseeable past, current, or impending unlawful activity or damage to the suite (you expressly agree that we have the right to document by photograph, video or otherwise any such damage, and/or compliance with this agreement during such entry); (iii) to prevent or mitigate bodily harm to you or others that we reasonably expect has occurred or may occur; (iv) upon your breach or suspected breach of any provision of this agreement, provided that we give you prior notice (e.g., by email, phone, text message, or knocking on the door); (v) for any purpose (including for repair and maintenance and to examine or show the same), provided that we give you reasonable notice (e.g., by email, phone, text message, or knocking on the door); (vi) to cooperate with requests from law enforcement officials to enter the suite; (vii) where we believe reasonably necessary to protect the personal safety, rights, or property of us, you, any third party, or to prevent fraud or other unlawful activity; and/or (viii) at any time that may be necessary or advisable in our sole discretion, such as in the event of an emergency.

No tenancy is created by this agreement. All property rights remain with The Company. The Guest agrees that The Company or other lawful authority may evict The Guest, without notice, for any reasons such as, but not limited to:

  1. failure to leave the unit at the designated check-in or check-out (unless extended according to the terms of this agreement and authorized in advance by The Company),
  2. nonpayment of rental or other charges,
  3. violation of any rule in this agreement,
  4. violation of any rules of the housing development, condominium association, or apartment complex in which the suite is located,
  5. any unlawful act of The Guest.

For bookings longer than 30 days, Barsala reserves the right to modify your unit to alternate, but a similar unit every 30 days.

The Guest agrees to hold The Company harmless for any eviction. The liability of The Company is limited to unused rental paid by The Guest. The Company has 10 working days in which to mail or credit charge card for this unused rental to The Guest. No breach of any term of any of the rules contained in this agreement or the rules of the housing development, condominium association, or apartment complex will be deemed and taken to be a waiver of any other breach of this agreement. The Company makes no warranties, expressed or implied. If any provision of this agreement is determined to not be valid or enforceable, the remainder of this agreement will not be affected and each provision will be valid and enforced to the fullest extent of the law. The Company reserves the right to move The Guest to a comparable suite at any time during this agreement should circumstances beyond the control of The Company arise. For the mutual convenience of the parties, it is understood and agreed that by making payment as requested, I (the Guest) shall have acknowledged and consented to all terms and conditions of this agreement, on behalf of myself and those in my party. The date of this agreement is the date the reservation is made.

The Guest consents to receive SMS messaging from The Company regarding their stay or in response to any inquiries for which The Guest reaches out. At any time, The Guest may respond with "STOP" to stop receiving SMS messaging.
