General Conditions

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.

Parties, Gatherings and Functions are strictly prohibited. The price charged is for domestic use only and not commercial. Accordingly this rate does 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 charges.

Damage, Breakages, Theft and Loss are the tenants responsibility during their stay.

We strive to keep the property well maintained & clean, we do not charge a cleaning fee, the house must be left clean, just like when you arrived, with a clean kitchen/bathrooms, kitchenware washed & put away in cupboards. Otherwise a fee of $125 will be deducted from the Security Bond.

Lost Keys fee $100

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.

Loss – the owners take no responsibility for the tenant’s personal property.

Variations to these conditions may only be made by prior arrangements with
the owner in writing.

Respect for Neighbours
