As Remixto specializes in short term vacation rentals, payment is received up front before check-in, guests sign a spanish language tenancy agreement that protects you from unwelcome guests overstaying.
Over time, there will be little wear and tear, and the occasional spoon will go walk-about. We recommend that if you have anything you value, you put it away before guests arrive. Overall however, we are constantly surprised by how respectful guests are of the homes they stay in. We collect a fairly large damage deposit upfront, and it is perhaps because guests typically want it back that they are very respectful of your home. It is a rare circumstance indeed where we need to deduct money from a damage deposit.
