Once your request is approved, a deposit, being the first night's accommodation, is charged. The deposit is fully refundable should you cancel more than 29 days before arrival. If the booking is made 28 days or less before commencement of the holiday, the full tariff is required to effect confirmation.
Full and final payment for the holiday booking is required at least 28 days prior to the commencement of the holiday. If the outstanding balance has not been received by the due date, the Owner and/or the Booking Agent reserve the right to cancel the booking without notice and the guest will forfeit the deposit.
CANCELLATIONS and AMENDMENTS
The deposit is fully refundable should you cancel more than 29 days before arrival (minus a $50 administration fee).
