DEFINITION OF SHORT TERM RENTAL
For SHORT TERM rentals (1 week up to 6 months) the price that is shown as Short-Term Rate (as well as the Daily or Weekly Rates) includes all the normal costs of an apartment, such as electricity, water, gas, internet & cable, and Building Service charges. The price does NOT include making telephone calls from the apartment telephone which are made using a pre-paid calling card. Also, not included in the Rates are the Security Deposit, Booking Fee, Bank Charges, and Final Cleaning Fee.
Viewings of apartments can be arranged by appointment only if the property is not occupied and ACP is given at least 72 hours’ notice.
From the start of the reservation, the guest agrees and accepts all the Terms and Conditions as shown below.
STEPS FOR CONFIRMING A RESERVATION
The reservation starts by getting in contact with ACP, by our websites or by email and providing all relevant information of the guests including full name as shown on official ID, date of arrival and departure, the property they wish to reserve and phone number for contact. The person who makes the reservation must be of legal age in their country of residence and guarantee to be financially responsible for the payment of the contracted services.
Within 24 hours you will receive an answer from ACP about the availability of the selected apartment for the requested dates.
The reservation will
be confirmed when the Guarantee Booking payment is paid in US Dollars
within 24 hours of receiving ACP confirmation. ACP uses PayPal for
all online Deposit payments. For payments made through PayPal, ACP
will add bank charges, which include currency conversion, money
transfer, and credit card fees totaling 15% of the Deposit amount.
The Deposit can also be requested into a local Peruvian bank or by
Western Union but there will be a $20 handling charge. Banking
charges and ACP Booking Fees are non-refundable.
Normal Arrival and Departure times $60.00
Holiday Arrival / Departure incurs an added $10.00 charge
Holidays are based on Peruvian Holidays.
Once this initial
payment (booking confirmation, booking fee, banking fee) is made, ACP
will confirm the reservation. All the prices published by ACP are
expressed in US Dollars, thus, both the payment of the rent and the
guarantee must be made in the same currency.
Checks from banks with agents in Peru will be accepted but confirmation will not be made until the check has cleared and the funds received by ACP.
The balance of rent
is due in cash when you arrive at your apartment. If payment is not
made in full at the time of check in the owner or ACP reserves the
right to refuse admittance.
The Tenancy Contract is between the tenant and the owner or manager of the property. This contract represents the entire agreement between the parties and replaces all prior understandings (oral or written) covering the subject matter and can be changed only in writing signed by both parties. No firm booking can be made until the Tenancy Contract is signed on arrival. ACP can send a draft copy of the Tenancy Contract on request.
At the time and date of the guest's arrival, previously decided in advance with no less than 72 hours’ notice, ACP and/or the property owner will be waiting for them at the rented apartment. At this time the following steps will take place:

This Security Deposit will be returned during the check-out process after a review of the signed inventory.
