We want all of our guests to have a safe and happy holiday staying in one of our luxury properties - we recommend you read our Terms & Conditions so you are aware of your rights and our expectations of you as our guests.
Check In: 3:00pm*
Check Out: 10:00am*
*Unless previous arrangements have been made, every attempt is made to provide guests with an early check in and/or a late check out. Although this is not always possible during peak seasons or when there are back-to-back bookings. Our cleaners spend anywhere from 3 to 4 hours cleaning and preparing a property for the next check in so it is essential that guests depart on time to ensure the next guests are not inconvenienced. Your consideration in this matter is sincerely appreciated.
Every effort is made to accommodate you in the property originally requested. This however is subject to change without notice. In such case, every effort will be made to relocate you to a similar property of equivalent value and size.
We use professional cleaning contractors to service the property prior to your arrival - PLEASE NOTIFY US IMMEDIATELY if there are any issues with the cleanliness, damage or functionality of the property on 0419 805 465. Under consumer law, the owner must be given an opportunity to fix any issues during your stay. YOU MUST REPORT ANY DAMAGE TO US IMMEDIATELY!!!
Once you depart, you will be responsible for any costs associated with any damage or excess mess/rubbish that was not reported to us upon arrival or during your stay.
KEYS MUST BE PLACED IN THE LOCKED KEY BOXES AT ALL TIMES - IF KEYS ARE LOST YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR REPLACEMENT LOCKS AND LOCKSMITHS TIME WHICH CAN RUN INTO HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS. KEYS CAN NOT BE REPLACED OR CUT, THE LOCKS MUST BE REPLACED DUE TO SECURITY AND INSURANCE REASONS.
For those properties with Coast Drive pool access, the key to access the pool is a coded key and costs $150 to replace - you will be charged for it if it is lost in addition to the lock replacement fee above, so please do not loose it!
The best advice is when you are coming and going to place the keys back in the combination box for safe keeping, you are less likely to loose them that way. On check out, make sure the keys are placed back in the combination box before you depart - make it the last thing you do and get your fellow guests to do it with you.
