A 50% deposit is required to secure your booking. The remaining balance is
automatically drawn from your authorised payment method 30 days prior to arrival.
Any booking not having the required deposit with us within 24 hours will be
automatically cancelled without notification to the client or their travel agent. Deposit
conditions for certain accommodation may vary and we will advise you of these
conditions at the time of booking if they differ from the above.
Full payment is required for bookings made less than 30 days prior to arrival. Please

Should you prefer to pay by credit card, you agree to allow our system to store your
credit card details and that you agree that our system may charge your card for any
outstanding funds (e.g. 30 days before arrival for the outstanding amount). Our
Merchant system “STRIPE” is PCI compliant (we do not physically store your card
number – it is digitally encrypted by Stripe (r)). If you have paid your deposit by credit
card, please contact us more than 30 days prior to your arrival in writing that you do
NOT wish for us to charge the card.
We have been instructed to ensure our amazing homes are taken care of, and to
guarantee this, we request a bond of $500-$1000. This can be a pre-authorisation on
a credit card or Direct Debit. Pre-authorisations will be made on your day of
departure and will automatically be released within 7 days. It is your responsibility to
ensure you have funds on your credit card.
Should we notice damage or additional cleaning requirements during our initial clean
and inspection, we retain the right to retain the bond until we have received
appropriate quotes from the relevant tradesperson/supplier. However, it will not be
more than 2 weeks.
We will be sending out a rental agreement with your confirmation. This must be
signed before arrival and we will only hand out keys to the guest who has made the
booking. All tenants must be over 18 or accompanied by a legal guardian for the
whole duration of the stay. Failing to do so, might result in refusal of entry.
Booking cancelled more than 30 days prior to arrival: a cancellation fee of 50% of the
total booking value will be deducted from your refund.
Bookings cancelled 30 days or less prior to arrival: a cancellation fee of 100% of the
total booking value will be retained unless we are able to re-book the property for the
full duration of your original stay.
We strongly recommend Travel Insurance as it may protect you if you cancel your
holiday due to unforeseen circumstances.
Any damage to the property or its contents caused by tenant will be charged to the
guest who’s name the booking has been made in. A security deposit will be required
for all holiday accommodation on arrival. Should you find the property damaged prior
to your stay, please advise our office immediately on (07) 5322 5066. Failure to do so
will deem you to be totally responsible for the condition of the property on departure.

for you. Check in time is property dependent and between the hours of 2pm & 5pm.
