Villa Rental Rates
$108 - $141/night*
*with 16 guests, per person per night
We rent Great Expectations to only 1 vacationing group at a time. Our rate structure starts at a base rate for use of the villa with 1 bedroom occupied (2 people) and then increases $1000 per room used (double occupancy) per week. We have found that groups often start out with 4-5 rooms and then realize that the per person per night drops dramatically if they add the 6th, 7th and/or 8th room. If you have any questions, please contact us directly.
If you’d like to utilize the 8th room (our owner’s apartment called Honeymoon), please indicate so on your reservation request.

We will be glad to recommend nearby villas to rent if you need more bedrooms for more people than we can accommodate comfortably.
In order to ensure the privacy, peace and quiet of our neighbors, the Villa’s facilities are for the exclusive use of only the guests staying at the Villa. Events such as receptions or catered dinners to include people not staying at the Villa are not allowed without the advance written permission of the owners.
The Villa is rented to only one group. We do not rent the unoccupied rooms in the Villa; you will be the only guests no matter the size of your party.

*Additional nights are calculated at pro-rated weekly rate (divide by 7 and multiply by the number of nights).
Smoking is not permitted inside any of the rooms, however it is allowed -if one must - on the outside deck areas. Since we are a smoke-free villa, we do not supply ashtrays. If you smoke outside, please use an appropriate 'ashtray' (e.g. bottle or can) and dispose of your ashes and cigarette/cigar in a responsible way.
DO NOT use villa items (e.g. candle holders, dishware) as your ashtray! If we find that someone has been smoking inside the villa we will deduct the cleaning costs from your security deposit.
Unlike a rental agency with a contract designed to protect them and the owners at the expense of the renters, since we own and operate just Great Expectations, this website describing in detail Great Expectations and our exchange of e-mails specifying what we are providing and what you are paying for constitute our rental agreement. If you would like require a formal rental agreement, one can be generated for your stay.
