Thank you for your inquiry to stay at:

And yes, the property is indeed available for your dates for the moment. ( 2/17/2017 3/3/2017 ).
However, we have just recently lowered our rates because we had a family who just canceled the booking due to a change in their vacation schedule.

We have a SPECIAL OFFER. The rate for 14 nights including taxes/fee is:

$ 3,500.00 +
- 35% Discount for special offer only
$ 2,275.00 +
$ 250.00 Refundable damage deposit ( Security Deposit: $ 250.00 )
$ 2,525.00 TOTAL ( Tax & Refundable damage deposit included ) - Currency: US $

The rental rate includes: airport transfers, round trip, fresh bed linens and towels, air conditioning, a reserved secure parking space, access to cable tv and wireless internet, free laundry service, cleaning and utilities.
Also, if you need a car you can use my own - Kia Sportage 4X4. No extra cost.

We have a concierge. He waits our guests to airport to driving them to the property, and he assists them during their vacation.

This is a special offer for an immediate booking.
For this special offer, payment of US $ 2,525.00 must be completed within 7 days (to secure this booking).

Cancellation policy:
100% refund up to 3 weeks notice before arrival date
80% refund between 3 and 2 weeks notice
40% refund for less than 2 weeks notice

If you would like to proceed I will just need your name, phone number and home address for the contract and I will forward as e-mail attachment.

If I can be of further assistance, please don't hesitate to let me know.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
