BOOKING AND STAY TERMS

The Tinyhouse.com Platform offers an online venue that enables users (“Members”) to publish, offer, search for, and book services. Members who publish and offer services are “Hosts” and Members who search for, book, or use services are “Guests.” Hosts offer accommodations (“Accommodations”), activities, excursions, and events (“Experiences”), and a variety of travel and other services (collectively, “Host Services,” and each Host Service offering, a “Listing”). You must register an account to access and use many features of the Tinyhouse.com Platform, and must keep your account information accurate. As the provider of the Tinyhouse.com Platform, Tinyhouse.com does not own, control, offer or manage any Listings or Host Services. Tinyhouse.com is not a party to the contracts concluded directly between Hosts and Guests, nor is Tinyhouse.com a real estate broker or insurer. Tinyhouse.com is not acting as an agent in any capacity for any Member.

We maintain other terms and policies that supplement these Terms like our Privacy Policy, which describes our collection and use of personal data, and our Payments Terms, which govern any payment services provided to Members by the Tinyhouse.com payment entities ("Tinyhouse.com Payments").

If you are a Host, you are responsible for understanding and complying with all laws, rules, regulations and contracts with third parties that apply to your Host Services.


General Statement of Caution

Homes for nightly rent on the Tinyhouse.com Platform are often located in very rural, mostly undeveloped plots of land in the woods and/or suburbs, or campgrounds or recreation land. Guests are completely responsible for their own safety and for having basic wilderness survival skills (e.g. do not approach wild animals, do not leave food out, etc.). Tinyhouse.com is not liable for bodily injury (including death) or damage to personal property, including vehicles, due to exposure to inclement weather or rural, rugged settings. By booking a Tinyhouse.com Unit, guests recognize and accept this responsibility and affirm they have these general skills.

In addition, while people enjoy our Hosts homes for their secluded settings, their homes and facilities are shared by all guests. Although our Hosts do their best to keep all facilities safe and clean, including enhanced cleaning procedures to address COVID-19, Tinyhouse.com is not liable for illness that may result in whole or in part from the use of our facilities. Guests are expected to observe prevailing CDC recommendations during their stay (including social distancing) and take other appropriate steps to maintain their health. By booking a Tinyhouse.com, guests recognize and accept that responsibility for their physical health and informing themselves of such protocols is fully their own.

Your Responsibilities. You are responsible and liable for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of anyone you invite to join or provide access to any Accommodation, Experience or other Host Service. For example, this means: (i) you are responsible for leaving an Accommodation (and related personal property) in the condition it was in when you arrived, and (ii) you must act with integrity, treat others with respect, and comply with applicable laws at all times. If you are booking for an additional guest who is a minor or if you bring a minor to a Host Service, you must be legally authorized to act on behalf of the minor and you are solely responsible for the supervision of that minor.

Your Assumption of Risk. You acknowledge that many activities carry inherent risks and agree that, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you assume the entire risk arising out of your access to and use of the Tinyhouse.com Platform and any Content, including your stay at any Accommodation, participation in any Experience, use of any other Host Service, or any other interaction you have with other Members whether in person or online. This means it is your responsibility to investigate a Host Service to determine whether it is suitable for you. For example, Host Services may carry risk of illness, bodily injury, disability, or death, and you freely and willfully assume those risks by choosing to participate in those Host Services.

Tinyhouse.com Booking

A Tinyhouse.com is booked upon receipt of the booking payment. This payment should be made by credit card through the Tinyhouse.com website. Your booking is not confirmed until Tinyhouse.com receives the payment and you have received the confirmation email. This confirmation email contains booking details, contact details, and other arrival and departure instructions. Furthermore, the guest will receive an email one week before check-in regarding the exact location of the Tinyhouse.com. One day before your check-in date, Tinyhouse.com may run a $1 authorization charge to the card used for your booking. If the charge is not authorized, you will be contacted by email to update your payment method.

Service Fees

Bookings may include a nightly service fee, plus applicable tax (“Service Fee”). Reservations without a Service Fee will be governed by the Tinyhouse.com Provisions terms described below.

Promotions, offers, discount coupons, vouchers, or codes may not be applied to the Service Fee, unless the terms for such promotion, offer or discount explicitly allow for it. This means that when you book a stay, you will not be eligible for an additional discount on the Service Fee on that booking unless specifically stated in the terms of the discount.

Bookings made with the Service Fee are subject to all cancellation and early departure policies and fees, and other payment terms as applicable.

We may change the Service Fee at any time, with or without notice, including the pricing and associated benefits, and cancellation terms. We may communicate these changes to you by email, and any changes will be posted in an update to these terms.

The Service Fee has no predetermined end date and may continue until terminated by Tinyhouse.com, which may happen at any time at Tinyhouse.com’s discretion, with or without notice.

Gift Cards

Tinyhouse.com offers the purchase of gift cards through our Site only. The gift card includes a code that may be used to book a Tinyhouse.com stay in any available cabin of the recipient’s choosing. All gift card purchases are final sale and do not expire. Gift cards cannot be applied to Tinyhouse.com Often Packs or to purchase a different gift card.

Maximum Stay

Maximum stays are determined and set by each host and will vary from listing to listing.


Cancellation Policy

Cancellations and changes to your booking can be made through your Tinyhouse.com account. In the event of cancellation of a fully paid booking, there is a cancellation charge corresponding to the number of days it was made, prior to the day of arrival: At least 15 days prior = no cancellation charge (full refund). 8-14 days prior = cancellation charge equals 50% of the total booking amount (partial refund). 7 or less days prior = cancellation charge equals 100% of the total amount paid (no refund). In the event that the guest changes the dates, it will be considered a new booking and will be subject to the standard cancellation procedures. If, after receipt of the confirmation email, a host is unable to provide the guest with the property that they booked or a property with similar or better characteristics, the guest will be refunded or credited subject to the following conditions: 100% of the total booking amount.

On the day of departure guests should leave the cabin clean and tidy, and lock the door after making sure that they have all their personal belongings.

GOVERNING LAW, CHOICE OF FORUM, JURY AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER

Please read the following section carefully, because it limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.

The laws of the State of Oregon (without giving effect to its conflicts of law principles) govern all matters arising out of or relating to these terms, including, without limitation, their validity, interpretation, construction, performance, and enforcement, or otherwise arising out of or relating to your booking or stay with us. All legal proceedings arising out of or in connection with these terms, your booking, or stay, shall be brought solely in Portland, Oregon. YOU AND WE HEREBY WAIVE TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION, SUIT OR RELATED PROCEEDING BROUGHT TO ENFORCE, DEFEND OR INTERPRET ANY RIGHTS OR REMEDIES ARISING UNDER, RELATING TO OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS.

CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTIONS, AND CONSOLIDATION WITH OTHER ACTIONS ARE NOT ALLOWED.


INJUNCTIVE RELIEF

In the event you breach or threaten breach of these terms or any other Tinyhouse.com policies, you acknowledge and agree that we will be greatly and irreparably damaged and the damage will be difficult to quantify. Therefore, we may apply to any court of competent jurisdiction accepting jurisdiction under this specific provision, who, regardless of the Governing Law provision above, will apply the laws of its own jurisdiction in determining whether we will be granted an injunctive or other equitable relief to stop your breach or your threat of breach, without impairing, invalidating, negating or voiding our rights to relief in either law or equity.

Host Terms

Hosting on Tinyhouse.com.

Host. As a Host, Tinyhouse.com offers you the opportunity to share your Accommodation, Experience, or other Host Service with our vibrant community of Guests - and earn money doing it. It’s easy to create a Listing and you are in control of how you host - set your price, availability, and rules for each Listing.

Contracting with Guests. When you accept a booking request, or receive a booking confirmation through the Tinyhouse.com Platform, you are entering into a contract directly with the Guest, and are responsible for delivering your Host Service under the terms and at the price specified in your Listing. You are also agreeing to pay applicable fees (and applicable taxes) for each booking. Tinyhouse.com Payments will deduct amounts you owe from your payout unless we and you agree to a different method. Any terms, policies or conditions that you include in any supplemental contract with Guests must: (i) be consistent with these Terms, our policies, and the information provided in your Listing, and (ii) be prominently disclosed in your Listing description.

Typical Host Fees range from 5% - 12%

Independence of Hosts. Your relationship with Tinyhouse.com is that of an independent individual or entity and not an employee, agent, joint venturer, or partner of Tinyhouse.com, except that Tinyhouse.com Payments acts as a payment collection agent as described in the Payments Terms. Tinyhouse.com does not direct or control your Host Service, and you agree that you have complete discretion whether and when to provide Host Services, and at what price and on what terms to offer them.

Managing Your Listing.

Creating and Managing Your Listing. The Tinyhouse.com Platform provides tools that make it easy for you to set up and manage a Listing. Your Listing must include complete and accurate information about your Host Service, your price, other charges like cleaning fees, resort fees, security deposits, and any rules or requirements that apply to your Guests or Listing. You are responsible for keeping your Listing information (including calendar availability) and content (like photos) up-to-date and accurate at all times. We recommend that you obtain appropriate insurance for your Host Services and suggest you carefully review policy terms and conditions including coverage details and exclusions. You may only maintain one Listing per Accommodation, but may have multiple Listings for a single property if it has multiple places to stay.

Know Your Legal Obligations. You are responsible for understanding and complying with any laws, rules, regulations, and contracts with third parties that apply to your Listing or Host Services. For example: Some landlords and leases, or homeowner and condominium association rules, restrict or prohibit subletting, short-term rentals and/or longer-term stays. Some cities have zoning or other laws that restrict the short-term rental of residential properties. Some jurisdictions require Hosts to register, get a permit, or obtain a license before providing certain Host Services (such as short-term rentals, longer-term stays, preparing food, serving alcohol for sale, guiding tours, or operating a vehicle). In some places, the Host Services you want to offer may be prohibited altogether. Some jurisdictions require that you register Guests who stay at your Accommodation. Some jurisdictions have laws that create tenancy rights for Guests and additional obligations for Hosts. For example, some places have landlord-tenant, rent control, and eviction laws that may apply to longer stays. Check your local rules to learn what rules apply to the Host Services you plan to offer. Information we provide regarding legal requirements is for informational purposes only and you should independently confirm your obligations. You are responsible for handling and using personal data of Guests and others in compliance with applicable privacy laws and these Terms. If you have questions about how local laws apply you should always seek legal advice.

Search Ranking. The ranking of Listings in search results on the Tinyhouse.com Platform depends on a variety of factors, including these main parameters:

  • Guest search parameters (e.g. number of Guests, time and duration of the trip, price range),
  • Listing characteristics (e.g. price, calendar availability, number and quality of images, Reviews, type of Host Service, Host status, age of the Listing, average Guest popularity),
  • Guest booking experience (e.g. customer service and cancellation history of the Host, ease of booking),
  • Host requirements (e.g. minimum or maximum nights, booking cut-off time), and
  • Guest preferences (e.g. previous trips, saved Listings, location from where the Guest is searching).

Search results may appear different on our mobile application than they appear on our website. Tinyhouse.com may allow Hosts to promote their Listings in search or elsewhere on the Tinyhouse.com Platform by paying an additional fee.

Your Responsibilities. You are responsible and liable for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions of anyone you allow to participate in providing your Host Services. You are responsible for setting your price and establishing rules and requirements for your Listing. You must describe any and all fees and charges in your Listing description and may not collect any additional fees or charges outside the Tinyhouse.com Platform. Do not encourage Guests to create third-party accounts, submit reviews, provide their contact information, or take other actions outside the Tinyhouse.com Platform in violation of our policies.

Hosting as a Team or Organization. If you work with a co-host or host as part of a team, business, or other organization, the entity and each individual who participates in providing Host Services is responsible and liable as a Host under these Terms. If you accept terms or enter into contracts, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to enter into contracts for and bind your team, business or other organization, and that each entity you use is in good standing under the laws of the place where it is established. If you perform other functions, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to perform those functions. If you instruct Tinyhouse.com to transfer a portion of your payout to a co-host or other Hosts, or to send payments to someone else, you must be authorized to do so, and are responsible and liable for the payment amounts and accuracy of any payout information you provide.

Your Assumption of Risk. You acknowledge that hosting carries inherent risks and agree that you assume the entire risk arising out of your access to and use of the Tinyhouse.com Platform, offering Host Services, or any interaction you have with other Members whether in person or online. You agree that you have had the opportunity to investigate the Tinyhouse.com Platform and any laws, rules, regulations, or obligations that may be applicable to your Listings or Host Services and that you are not relying upon any statement of law made by Tinyhouse.com.

Cancellations, Travel Issues, and Booking Modifications.

Cancellations and Travel Issues. In general, if a Guest cancels a reservation, the amount paid to you is determined by the cancellation policy that applies to that reservation. As a host, you should not cancel on a Guest without a valid reason with extenuating circumstance or applicable law. If you cancel on a Guest without such a valid reason, we may impose a cancellation fee and/or other consequences. If: (i) a Guest experiences a Travel Issue, (ii) an extenuating circumstance arises, or (iii) a reservation is cancelled under Section 13 of these Terms, the amount you are paid will be reduced by the amount we refund or otherwise provide to the Guest, and by any other reasonable costs we incur as a result of the cancellation. If a Guest receives a refund after you have already been paid, or the amount of the refund and other costs incurred by Tinyhouse.com exceeds your payout, Tinyhouse.com (via Tinyhouse.com Payments) may recover that amount from you, including by offsetting the refund against your future payouts. You agree that Tinyhouse.com’s our Terms preempt the cancellation policy you set in situations where they allow for the cancellation of a reservation and/or the issuance of refunds to Guests. If we reasonably expect to provide a refund to a Guest under one of these policies, we may delay release of any payout for that reservation until a refund decision is made.

Booking Modifications. Hosts and Guests are responsible for any Booking Modifications they agree to make via the Tinyhouse.com Platform or direct Tinyhouse.com customer service to make on their behalf, and agree to pay any additional amounts, fees or taxes associated with a Booking Modification.

Taxes.

Host Taxes. As a host, you are responsible for determining and fulfilling your obligations under applicable laws to report, collect, remit, or include in your price any applicable VAT or other indirect taxes, occupancy taxes, tourist, income, or other taxes ("Taxes").

Collection and Remittance by Tinyhouse.com. In jurisdictions where Tinyhouse.com facilitates the collection and/or remittance of Taxes on behalf of Hosts, you instruct and authorize Tinyhouse.com to collect Taxes on your behalf, and/or to remit such Taxes to the relevant Tax authority. Any Taxes that are collected and/or remitted by Tinyhouse.com are identified to Members on their transaction records, as applicable. Tinyhouse.com may seek additional amounts from Members (including by deducting such amounts from future payouts) in the event that the Taxes collected and/or remitted are insufficient to fully discharge that Members’ tax obligations, and you agree that your sole remedy for Taxes collected by Tinyhouse.com is a refund from the applicable Tax authority. You acknowledge and agree that we retain the right, with prior notice to affected Members, to cease the collection and remittance of Taxes in any jurisdiction for any reason.

Tax Information. In certain jurisdictions, Tax regulations may require that we collect and/or report Tax information about you, or withhold Taxes from payouts to you, or both. If you fail to provide us with documentation that we determine to be sufficient to support any such obligation to withhold Taxes from payouts to you, we may withhold payouts up to the amount as required by law, until sufficient documentation is provided. You agree that Tinyhouse.com may issue on your behalf invoices or similar documentation for VAT, GST, consumption or other Taxes for your Host Services to facilitate accurate tax reporting by you, our Guests, and/or their organizations.

Limitation of Liability

Tinyhouse.com shall not be responsible for any direct or indirect damages caused to the any Home listed on Tinyhouse.com as consequence of use. This includes damages, insurance, loss due to fire, theft, and misconduct.

In the event that a guest fails to comply with any terms applicable to their booking and/or stay, the Hosts and/or Tinyhouse.com reserves the right to ask the guest to leave the unit and property, and the guest in question shall not be entitled to any form of compensation. Upon booking any property with Tinyhouse.com guests automatically accept our terms, which we expect them to comply with.

GOVERNING LAW, CHOICE OF FORUM, JURY AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER

Please read the following section carefully, because it limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us.

The laws of the State of Oregon (without giving effect to its conflicts of law principles) govern all matters arising out of or relating to these terms, including, without limitation, their validity, interpretation, construction, performance, and enforcement, or otherwise arising out of or relating to your booking or stay with us. All legal proceedings arising out of or in connection with these terms, your booking, or stay, shall be brought solely in Portland, Oregon. YOU AND WE HEREBY WAIVE TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION, SUIT OR RELATED PROCEEDING BROUGHT TO ENFORCE, DEFEND OR INTERPRET ANY RIGHTS OR REMEDIES ARISING UNDER, RELATING TO OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS.

FURTHER, YOU AGREE THAT YOU MAY ONLY RESOLVE DISPUTES IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND MAY NOT BRING A CLAIM AS A PLAINTIFF OR AS CLASS MEMBER IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. CLASS ARBITRATIONS, CLASS ACTIONS, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTIONS, AND CONSOLIDATION WITH OTHER ACTIONS ARE NOT ALLOWED.


INJUNCTIVE RELIEF

In the event you breach or threaten breach of these terms or any other Tinyhouse.com policies, you acknowledge and agree that we will be greatly and irreparably damaged and the damage will be difficult to quantify.
