required to execute as part of the reservation process. The written
and executed Rental Agreement will take precedence over this
overview in case of any dispute.
All charges and payments are in U.S. dollars. Wire transfer,
traveler’s check, money order, cashier’s check, personal check, or
Visa, MasterCard, American Express are the only acceptable forms of
payment. Credit cards require an additional four percent (4%)

Each of the Properties we represent offer different meal plans
that largely fall into one of the three following categories. The
meal plans available in our villas vary from villa to villa so
please check with your rental agent prior to making arrangements.
- Full Meal Plan - Many of the Properties we
represent are very exclusive luxury vacation rental homes. These
vacation homes have mandatory meal plans priced on a per person
basis (varies by age) designed to provide you with a broad array
of fine foods and beverages throughout your stay. Mandatory meal
plans cover all three main daily meals as well as snacks offered
virtually any time. A sample menu will be provided as part of
your reservation confirmation so you can adjust it to fit your
individual tastes and needs (remember to highlight food
- Pre-Stocked Self Catered Meal Plan –
Shopping in a foreign country is often more adventurous than you
may want since locating fresh vegetables, fruits and meats can
be a challenge for a non-local. We do the shopping for you to
pre-stock the villa with the food and beverages of your choice.
Our villa concierge will contact you in advance of your arrival
so you can provide the necessary shopping list. Upon arrival
your villa will already be stocked, ready for you to do your own
meal preparations. Your fee is a fixed daily fee in addition to
the actual cost of the food purchased for you.
- Self Catered Meal Plan – If available, the
Self-Catered Meal Plan is designed to allow you to shop for and
prepare all of your own meals. A daily fixed fee is charged for
the use of the kitchen. You do all of your own shopping and meal
preparation throughout your stay.
The cost of meal plans may vary from villa to villa and will be
confirmed as part of the reservation process.
The staff members at the Properties are all exceptionally hard
working and dedicated to your total enjoyment, satisfaction and
relaxation during your vacation with us. To help compensate them for
their extraordinary efforts, Golden Treasures requires a minimum gratuity, shown
on your invoice, to be paid at the start of your stay with us. We
charge this in advance to help you budget all anticipated expenses
