TRAVEL INSURANCE

Would you like to protect this booking with Cancellation Cover? We are a small family-run property and cancellations can affect us hugely.

 

We strongly recommend you purchase comprehensive travel insurance at the time of booking. We suggest that the policy should include, but not be limited to, the reimbursement of any monies paid in the event the travel is canceled; loss or damage to personal baggage and loss of money and medical expenses.

CHILD POLICY

NUMBER OF GUESTS

At no time during your occupancy is the number of guests staying to exceed the number booked, unless prior approval is sought and given by management. Any persons exceeding the maximum occupancy of the property will be considered trespassers and will be evicted.

CHECK IN & CHECK OUT

Standard check in time is 2pm on the day of arrival and the room is to be vacated by 10am on the day of departure. An additional fee may be charged if you do not check out by 10am. Early arrivals and late check outs are at the discretion of management and must be requested at the time of booking. Whilst every effort will be made to accommodate early arrivals and late departures, the only way to absolutely ensure early check-in or late check-out is to book the extra $30 fee upon booking.
