To maintain a good standard for our guests we require certain conditions to be complied with. We appreciate most will respect our property but the occasional abuse requires that we state the following conditions:
Number of Guests should not exceed the number stated on the Confirmation Notice or subsequently agreed in writing or email.
Fees will apply for excess guests not agreed with the owners in advance. This may include extra uses such as wedding preparations and photography sessions - see below:
The property can only be used for weddings and functions by pre-arrangement and the agreed payments have been finalised including a bond.
The bond will be used to cover breakages and extra cleaning.
Functions includes weddings and parties but also the use of the property for wedding preparation, photography sessions, event preparation and any other use where the use is other than accommodation.
Accordingly the normal stated accommodation rates do not allow for the extra wear associated with functions in terms of cleaning, garbage removal, wear and tear, repairs etc. Use contrary to this may result in additional payments.
Damage, Breakages, Theft and Loss are the guests responsibility during their stay.
Departure: the property should be left in a similar state to its condition on arrival.
Check-out time: is 10am by the latest, to allow time to prepare property for next guests.
Pets are not allowed unless specific arrangements have been made in writing with the owner.
Loss: the owners take no responsibility for the tenant's personal property.
