1. Arrival / Departure

Our changeover day is generally Sunday. Arrival is possible from 4:00 p.m. Departure is to be made by 11:00 a.m. at the latest. Arrival and departure times also apply to individually agreed weekdays. Other arrival and departure times can be agreed directly with us.

A proportionate repayment of the rent due to early departure does not take place.

2. Special requests and ancillary agreements

Individual ancillary agreements are possible in principle, but require our written confirmation in any case.

Pets - no matter what kind - are not allowed.

3. Obligations of the guest/tenant:

As our guest, you undertake to treat the rented items (holiday home, inventory and outdoor facilities) with care. If damage occurs to the holiday home and/or its inventory during the stay, the tenant is obliged to report this to us immediately.

Any damage found upon arrival must be reported to us immediately. 

In the event of any disruptions in performance, our guests are required to do everything reasonable within the scope of their legal obligation to help remedy the disruption and minimize any damage that may have occurred.

On the day of departure, all personal items are to be removed by our guests, household waste is to be disposed of in the containers provided, crockery/cutlery/kitchen utensils are clean and washed and put back in the cupboards provided.

The person who caused the damage and/or costs arising from the use of our WLAN is solely liable. By using the WLAN, our guests undertake to use it responsibly and with care.

3. Prices and Payment

Our prices are weekly prices. They include water, electricity, bed linen and towels. The local tourist tax is not included and must be paid to us with the rental price.

The binding rental becomes valid upon receipt of the deposit on the account of the Ellersiek holiday home. The agreed deposit is due for payment within seven days of receipt of the booking documents. The payment of the balance is due no later than 14 days before departure. If the payment deadlines are not met, we as the landlord can withdraw from the contract. Non-payment is considered withdrawal and entitles us to re-rent the reserved time.


4. Withdrawal

You can withdraw from the contract at any time. The withdrawal must be made in writing. In the event of withdrawal, the following cancellation guidelines apply:

  • If you cancel up to 12 weeks before the start of the trip, we will refund your deposit minus €100.00 expenses.

  • If you cancel between 12 and 6 weeks before the start of the trip, we will keep your deposit.

  • In the event of cancellation between 6 and 2 weeks before the start of the trip, 50% of the rental price will be charged.

  • If you cancel 2 weeks or less before the start of the trip, 80% of the rental price will be charged.

The reason for withdrawing from the contract is irrelevant. The date of receipt of your cancellation message counts.

In times of Corona:
If the island is closed due to another lockdown and you cannot travel to Föhr for this reason, we will refund the entire rental price.

In the case of a personal corona disease - as with any other illness - the normal regulations apply. In this case, arrival is prohibited.  

If replacement tenants are named, we reserve the right to refuse them after contact.

5. Privacy

The tenant agrees that within the framework of the contract concluded with him, necessary data about his person will be stored and passed on to necessary institutions (e.g. spa administration). We undertake to treat all personal data as strictly confidential and not to pass it on at any time for advertising purposes or the like.

6. Liability

The description of our house was created to the best of our knowledge and belief. We are not liable for changes to the Ellersiek holiday home due to force majeure, customary power and water failures and storms. Likewise, there is no liability in the event of unforeseeable or unavoidable circumstances such as official orders, sudden construction sites or disruptions caused by natural and local events (e.g. storm tide/high water).

Liability on our part for the use of the equipment/furniture (e.g. grill, garden furniture, washing machine, etc.) is excluded. We are also not liable for personal items in the event of theft or fire. Our guests are fully liable for willful destruction or damage.

The arrival and departure of our guests is their own responsibility and liability.

7. Final Provisions

Photos and text on the website or in the flyer serve as a realistic description and are protected by copyright. 100% correspondence with the rental property cannot be guaranteed. We reserve the right to make changes to the equipment (e.g. furniture) or appearance, provided they are equivalent.


Any use/distribution of the photos, making one or more copies, may only be carried out with our express written consent.

8. Severability Clause:

Should one or more provisions of these terms and conditions be or become invalid, this does not affect the validity of the remaining conditions. The ineffective provision is to be replaced by an effective one that comes as close as possible to the economic and legal will of the contracting parties.

German law applies. Place of jurisdiction and place of performance is the place of residence of the landlord.
