TERMS and CONDITIONS of BOOKINGS for BANCROFT VIEWS HOLIDAY ACCOMMODATION (in plain English).
The CONTACT telephone may be unanswered between the hours of 6 PM and 9 AM. Again, leave a MESSAGE.
The MINIMUM booking is for TWO NIGHTS. Single night bookings are only accepted on special deals or in unusual circumstances.
BOOKINGS will be accepted in good faith, and will require a 10% deposit of the total tariff to initially secure the booking. A further payment will be required closer to the booking, (at one month out, or within the month), which will comprise a further 40% of the total tariff. Completion of full payment will be expected on your arrival to take up the booking. Sundry charges (if any) will be payable on vacating the property. Please note that, (with the exception of accommodation agents), the person transacting the booking MUST be one of the adult guests who occupies the premises at the allocated period. We reserve the right to refuse occupancy, with loss of deposit, if this is found not to be the case.
CHECK-IN time is generally after 2PM and no later than 5PM, unless arranged with the property manager. CHECK-OUT time is prior to 10AM. Please leave keys with the property manager if on-site, or return them to reception at Metung Waters, or drop into the key return box located under the stairs on the south side of the property. Late check-out may be arranged with the property manager, but only if the property is not let again for that night. Luggage may be stored by arrangement with the property manager.
CANCELLATION of a booking prior to 60 days from the booking, will result in a full refund. If a cancellation occurs within 60 days of the booking, the deposit will only be refunded if the property can be let for the same or longer period, (less a $25 administration fee). Otherwise guests are responsible for payment of all nights reserved, regardless of arrival or departure dates. If a guest fails to occupy a property, or does not show, then payment will still be invoked for the full tariff.
PAYMENT methods may be by Mastercard, Visa, (either credit or debit cards), cheque by arrangement, and of course cash. (A credit card swipe may still be required for a cash payment, as damage surety).
All accidental DAMAGE must be reported. We expect all fittings and appliances to be only used for their intended purpose. Guests are responsible for the cost of righting any damage to property or fittings arising from their occupancy. The owners reserve the right to enforce a fair charge for unintentional or indeed wilful damage to the property, or contents of the property. Guests hereby agree that any damage charges may be processed through their credit card.
BOAT OWNERS must inform us that you intend bringing a boat to the property. Power boats over dinghy size must carry suitable comprehensive marine insurance, to be able to berth at the property jetty. Boat skippers may not use the seaward end of the jetty as a mooring, but can temporarily come along side there. The property manager will assist to allocate a berth, depending on boat size, draft and maneuverability. The jetty area is a 5 knot zone, which extends well out into Bancroft Bay. Any boat "hooning" in the vicinity of the jetty, other moored boats, and the boats on the swing moorings, will undoubtedly be reported to the water police by the locals. Jet-skis may not be left unattended on the beach area.
