You hereby agree that our services consist of facilitating the sale and paying the suppliers of the rental apartment and any travel services named in this agreement or your itinerary or otherwise providing services or goods in connection with your trip (the “Suppliers”), such as airlines and other lodging providers, local hosts, sightseeing tour operators, bus lines, car rental companies, driving services, restaurants, and providers of entertainment.

CANCELLATIONS: Your payments are non-refundable regardless of the reason for the cancellation of your trip. No-shows, late arrivals, a reduction in number of persons in your party after your arrival, and early departures after your arrival are non-refundable. Guests who abandon their rental apartment without permission from Marina View Village management agree they have no rights to compensation.
Exception for Force Majeure: If St. John and the U.S. Virgin Islands are affected by acts of God such as hurricanes, floods, epidemics, pandemics, earthquakes, or other conditions or government-ordered closures, strikes, airport closures, riots, terrorism, or fire, you may cancel, in which event we will use reasonable commercial efforts to cause the owner or manager to agree to reschedule or to a full or partial refund. However, we cannot guarantee such refunds. THE FOREGOING IS MARINA VIEW VILLAGE’S SOLE LIABILITY AND OBLIGATION IN SUCH CIRCUMSTANCES. Our duty under this paragraph does not apply when the rental apartment is available (and travel to the rental apartment is possible) notwithstanding U.S. State Department advisories or the like.
INSURANCE: We strongly recommend that you purchase insurance in case of trip cancellation and medical problems, as well as medical evacuation insurance to cover the cost of a private jet to return home. If you decline insurance coverage, you will personally assume full responsibility for any financial loss associated with your travel arrangements, and you could lose your entire travel investment and/or have to pay more money to correct the situation.
For example, you will suffer a loss if: (i) your flight has been cancelled or delayed and your vacation apartment rental payments are nonrefundable; (ii) you need to cancel your trip due to illness; (iii) a hurricane, volcano or earthquake occurs before your trip or while traveling and you are stranded; (iv) your airline or travel agency files for bankruptcy; (v) a terrorist incident occurs at your destination; (vi) you have a medical emergency in a foreign country and need medical attention or evacuation; (vii) your bags are lost and your medication is in them, and you need to have an emergency prescription filled; or (viii) your passport and wallet are stolen, and you need emergency cash and a replacement passport. You may enjoy more benefits the earlier you purchase. You can find insurance companies by typing “trip insurance” in your web browser. Any questions about what travel insurance does or does not cover should be addressed directly to the travel insurance company.
PASSPORTS AND VISAS: We also advise you to ensure all necessary travel documents (Passports) and driver’s licenses to rent vehicles are up to date. If you are a U.S. Citizen traveling to the U.S. Virgin Islands (St. John, St. Thomas, St. Croix), you will need Proof of Citizenship; this is a Photo ID and a birth certificate with a raised seal (photocopies are not allowed). For further information: http://www.travel.state.gov – if you are planning to do any day trips/day sails to the British Virgin Island or any other Caribbean country, you will need a valid U.S. Passport.
International travel requires a passport valid for 6 months beyond your intended return travel date. In many cases, you will also need to have multiple consecutive blank visa pages within your passport (the number varies depending on the destination(s)). Some destinations also require that visas be obtained prior to travel. Please speak with us if you are unsure about the visa requirements for your travel destination, but you are solely responsible for complying with passport and visa requirements. Your name, as listed on your travel documents, must exactly match your name as listed on your tickets. US citizens should refer to the US State Department’s travel website www.travel.state.gov. Citizens of other countries must make their nationalities known to us and are responsible for obtaining proper documentation in their own countries.
TRAVEL REQUIREMENTS: Local governments can impose travel requirements from time to time, and it is your responsibility to ensure you meet them before your arrival. For the latest COVID-19 government travel regulations for every country, we recommend going to IATA’s website. These requirements change often, so be sure to check them often. For the latest airline requirements, check your airline’s home page.

The only exception is for a honeymoon couple, if the parent or legal adult makes the reservation and pays the rent. All Guests listed in this Agreement hereby agree to rent this vacation property in accordance with the rental terms and conditions as stipulated in this contract. The Guest understands and agrees Marina Bay Village reserves the right to cancel any booking that is not made in accordance with this Agreement, in which case there will be no refunds.

Guest is required to follow all instructions precisely on using the door-locking mechanism – call if you are unsure!

Inside the apartment, we advise using the deadbolt for peace of mind.

GARBAGE REMOVAL: Guests are responsible for removal of all trash from their vacation rental. A $75 fee will be applied to the credit card provided on this contract for incidentals, damages, etc., if Marina View Village management is required to remove trash left behind. There are numerous dumpsters throughout the island for guests to use.
CONSERVING ELECTRICITY: Due to the cost of electricity in the U.S. Virgin Islands, the air-conditioning in your apartment will not be turned on before you arrive.

We are requesting that you turn the air-conditioning off when not in the apartment.

Anything you are willing to do will be appreciated in conserving your electrical usage.

CELL PHONE USAGE ALONG THE NORTH SHORE: If you use your cell phone on the north side of the island there is a good chance you will pick up the cell tower on Tortola (British Virgin Islands). If this happens you will be charged for an international call on your cell phone plan.
