Our Commitment to Privacy
Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.
The Information We Collect:
This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the fbglodging.com website. On some pages, you can make requests for project quotes. The types of personal information collected on these pages are:
- Mailing address

The Way We Use Information:
We use the information you provide about yourself when requesting a quote only to help you find an appropriate vacation rental. We do not share this information with outside parties except as authorized by you, or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with the law.
We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.
We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.
Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

Our Respect the Community Policy:
We ask that you please behave as you would in any home in which you live with respect for the property you are renting and the neighborhood for which the property is located. We have a zero-tolerance policy if any disrespect is reported to us regarding disrespect to the home, property, neighbors or neighborhood such as noise, trash, parking, damage, etc. We will immediately require you to leave the property without a refund if this policy is not followed accordingly.

You agree to pay for all goods and services that you, or those using your account, ordered through the site, including taxes. All legal disputes will be resolved in Gillespie County.
Upon making a reservation, Gastehaus Schmidt will send a confirmation (via snail mail, fax, or email). Please check over the information. Ultimately, it is a guest’s responsibility to double-check the dates and location of the reservation. Any questions should be directed to the Gastehaus Schmidt office at 830-997-5612. Please bring the confirmation and map with you when you come to town. It has the address to your guesthouse in it. Failure to bring your map is not a valid reason for cancellation.

- Check-in is anytime after 3 pm. Gästehaus Schmidt will not release keys before check-in.

- Registered guests are responsible for any damage done to a home and or extra cleaning fees. Should additional (above and beyond the norm) cleaning be required, your credit card will be charged a $25/hour fee. Some homes charge by the bedroom. If you use more bedrooms than initially reserved we will charge the extra charges to your credit card.

- Reservations are held, per your request, by credit card or check. Gastehaus Schmidt will charge the balance due to your credit card within 14 days prior to arrival. If a credit card does not hold an authorization (declines or shows as lost), your reservation is subject to cancellation, and forfeiture of your deposit, if any.
- Changes can occur at any time, including PRICE and POLICY changes. Homeowners often make other changes such as discontinuing a breakfast or changing a bed size. Gastehaus Schmidt is not responsible for any changes a homeowner might make in the property that they own. Gastehaus Schmidt makes every effort to let you know about these changes.

You agree that Gästehaus Schmidt will charge $35 for any cancellation more than 14 days from your arrival date. Within 14 days, you agree that you are responsible for the complete reservation.

You agree that you will not hold a party or a wedding without written permission from the homeowner.
Changes on Reservations
If the number of guests decreases within 14 days of arrival, you agree to be responsible for them.
Group cancellations must follow a slightly different set of rules. Groups constitute a reservation made by one individual or a business or group of other names that rents five or more units (suites, cottages, cabins, etc) for a specific date. One night’s deposit must be made the same day a group reservation is taken. The balance of the lodging charges must be paid at least 21 days prior to arrival. Gästehaus Schmidt will charge $35 per unit for any cancellation more than 21 days from your arrival date. Cancellations made within 21 days of arrival lose any deposit and must be paid in full. Group reservations must receive written permission from Gastehaus Schmidt and its homeowners if your group plans to gather at one location. Guests may be asked to leave if they do not have written permission for any such gatherings and/or be billed at an additional $250.00 per hour the party or gathering occurred.
If you book through a third-party reservation website, such as VRBO and Airbnb, you are bound by their cancellation policies. We have no leeway in their policies. Please contact the organization you used to make the reservation.
