The same applies if the accommodation unit, due to damage, dirt or equipment defects can not be handed over to the next guest. Loss or damage will be charged to the owner of the property by the guest on the spot.
6. Complaints, claims for damages
It is the duty of the guest to conscientiously handle the accommodation unit and its inventory. The guest must return the accommodation unit upon his departure in the same condition as the same when he was taken over. In case the condition in the accommodation unit is not in accordance with the reservation, the guest must inform the person responsible for the keys immediately. In the event that any irregularities that were apparent are not reported immediately upon arrival, the unit will be considered to be relinquished to use in a fully-functioning condition. If irregularities arise during the stay, the duty of the guest is to proceed in the same way. In the event that the owner or person responsible for the keys is unable to correct the deficiency in a reasonable time, the guest is obliged to notify SUNNY STEP. If a guest leaves the facility alone or finds another accommodation without giving SUNNY STEP the opportunity to resolve the cause of his dissatisfaction or to offer him the appropriate replacement accommodation, the guest will be entitled to compensation regardless of whether the reasons for his departure were justified or not. Claim for damages must be submitted to SUNNY STEP in writing within 2 weeks of the end of the accommodation, with supporting evidence (photographs, confirmation by the person responsible for the keys, testimonies, etc.). Complaints invested after the expiration of the 2-week deadline will not be taken into consideration. We emphasize that it is in the interest of the guest to act in good faith and to express his / her will to resolve the complaint during his / her stay and to send his written complaint to the owner of the facility on the spot and request the written confirmation that he or she has received the complaint. If the guest fails to meet the above conditions, he / she will lose all rights to compensation. SUNNY STEP is obliged to make a written decision on the objection within 21 days upon receipt of the complaint in the manner in which the objection was received (by e-mail, mail or personal delivery to which it will be sent in a written consignment with the return). If necessary for the purpose of collecting information and reviewing the allegations in the complaint, SUNNY STEP may postpone the deadline for a further 14 days, which is to be notified in writing to the complainant’s guest. SUNNY STEP will only address those objections that the guest submits to the proof that he has sent a written complaint to the on-site service provider and that the cause can not be removed on the spot. While SUNNY STEP does not provide a solution, the client waives the mediation of any other person, court institution, or providing information to the media.
7. SUNNY STEP Obligations
SUNNY STEP undertakes to make available to its guests, in the name of the owner, or on behalf of the renter, a neat and clean accommodation unit equipped with the description.

In the event that this is not possible, it is not realized within a reasonable time, or if the guest refuses to accept the offered alternative accommodation, SUNNY STEP will compensate the guest for any form of impairment if it is indisputably established that it is responsible for it. In the event that a guest, due to the ignorance of SUNNY STEP resulting in a breach of contract, is liable to loss or damage, the SUNNY STEP accepts the liability for damages. The statutory liability of SUNNY STEP is limited to the total cost of accommodation (whereby the claim of all persons involved is paid together) and does not include personal damages and losses such as material and financial losses. SUNNY STEP will not be held liable if loss or damage can be attributed to the following causes:
