What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We do not collect any data when you visit our site unless you engage our services. When you book a stay, we collect your personal information such as email and phone number to facilitate your vacation rental arrangement. This information is retained by this company for the purpose of maintaining contact and ease of record keeping for repeat business. When making a payment on the website, your credit card or other financial information is passed to the credit card processor but is not stored or saved by us. If in the course of doing business with us, you provide your credit card or other financial information to make manual payments, the information is destroyed after the transaction is confirmed as complete. For your security, we do not store credit card or financial information of our guests at any time. Because of this, you will need to provide the information each time you make a payment.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Your comments about our properties may be shown in guest comments in order to help future customers who are considering using our services. We appreciate it when our guests take the time to share their experiences with others.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
