Terms and Conditions
To protect all parties involved, please read the following terms and conditions. By making a booking and receiving a confirmation letter, you are agreeing to these terms and conditions.
Once your booking has been confirmed, your deposit is non-refundable. If the booking is cancelled in writing more than 45 days from the date of commencement of your holiday you will be released from the liability for the full balance of hire.
If we receive written notice of cancellation less than 45 days prior to the date of commencement of your holiday, and we are successful in finding guests to take your place at the holiday home, you will be released from the liability for the full balance of hire. The deposit however, will not be refunded.
The Booking Agent recommends the Guest takes out comprehensive holiday cancellation and protection insurance with a reputable insurance company to cater for any unforeseen circumstances that may arise including accident, ill health or any other matters beyond the Guest’s reasonable control, as once the booking has been made and confirmed, the Guest will be responsible for full payment of the rental amount whether or not occupation of the Property occurs.
The rental contact is between the Guest and the Owner of the Property for which the accommodation booking is made, and is subject to the terms and conditions herein. The contract for accommodation shall not be effective until the Booking Agent sends the Guest email confirmation of the booking. The Guest acknowledges that the Booking Agent acts as a booking agent for the Owner only and not as a principal.
The accommodation booking will not be confirmed by the Booking Agent until the Guest’s deposit payment is received and cleared. If the accommodation booking is made within 30 days of the date of commencement of the Guest’s proposed holiday, the full rental payable for the Property is required together with any bond, credit card information and any fees applicable.
The full amount payable in respect of the Property rental shall be paid at 45 days prior to the date of commencement of the booking. If the full payment has not been received by the Booking Agent at least 45 days prior to the start of the rental period, then the Booking Agent and the Owner reserve the right to cancel the booking without notice, and the Guest will forfeit the Guest’s deposit which will be non-refundable in such circumstances.

Description Of The Property
All information in respect of the Property contained in the Booking Agent’s website is believed to be correct at the time of the publication, however all details are subject to change by the Booking Agent and the Owner without notice. The Booking Agent will not accept any responsibility for any alterations to the Property or any part thereof beyond the Booking Agents control or any liability for any matter or occurrences beyond the Booking Agents reasonable control including damage caused by extreme weather conditions, break down of appliances, wiring, plumbing, invasion of pests, or any act or omission on the part of the Owner causing loss, accident or injury to the Guest, or any one or more of them.
The short-term accommodation contract negotiated by the Booking Agent and made between the Guest and the Owner is made on the understanding that the Property and its facilities as stated in the booking confirmation will be available as represented to the Guest. Should any events whatsoever arise beyond the reasonable control of the Booking Agent, which render the Property uninhabitable (for example flood, fire, storm, tempest, etc) or the property becomes for sale or is sold by the Owner, then the Booking Agent may have to cancel the Guest’s booking for the Property. Should such circumstances arise, then the Booking Agent will endeavour to relocate the Guest to a holiday home of similar standard to the property in the same area. Where this is not possible, the Booking Agent will refund all monies paid by the Guest in respect of the Property. Upon refund of the monies paid, the guest shall have no further claims whatsoever against the Owner of the Property or the Booking Agent.
