Cedar Lodge - Terms and Conditions for Reservations

Standard Terms and Conditions of Temporary Holiday Accommodation

The premises are available to you for holiday purposes only and for the period stated on the receipt and confirmation.

Deposit Required

When a property is available a booking is confirmed on receipt of the applicable deposit. A deposit of 20% of the total tariff is required to firmly allocate your reservation. We will request this deposit at the time of confirming the availability. Deposits can be paid by direct deposit or bank cheque. If your deposit is not received within seven (7) days of our confirmation of availability, we reserve the right to allocate any reserved dates to another party without any further reference to you. Payment of the rental deposit constitutes the clients acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.

Balance Due

The remaining 80% of the total tariff is required, in full, not later than 28 days prior to occupancy. If not the owner has the right to cancel the booking and attempt to re-let it.
If a booking is made within 28 days of the start of the proposed stay, we require payment in full within seven (7) days.

Cancellation Policy

A cancellation if caused by the guest, must be advised in writing and all cancellations are charged an administration fee of $190.00. If your stay is cancelled 57 days or more prior to your arrival, the remainder of the deposit will be refunded in full within seven (7) days. Should you need to cancel 29-56 days prior to your planned arrival, your deposit less administration fee will only be refunded if we are able to re-let the property for the same dates of your confirmed booking.  If your cancellation is advised 28 days or less prior to your confirmed date, the deposit and all other funds are non-refundable.
