In brief:

  • No smoking and no pets
  • Please pay the balance of the rental amount 7 days before arrival, otherwise your booking may be forfeited
  • If your booking does not require beds in all of the bedrooms of the house, we may block off the unused bedrooms to reduce the cleaning / servicing load
  • Please keep to the agreed check in and check out times otherwise there may be additional charges
  • Variations can be agreed upon but only if we agree in writing.
  • A deposit is required to secure the booking. When you pay the deposit, this means you accept these Terms and Conditions.

A little more detail:

If you require a cancellation, any money paid is not refundable, unless we can re-let the house for the entire period. If a refund is made (due to the property being re-let) we will deduct a $50 cancellation fee.

We will make every effort to ensure the property is available as booked. However, we reserve the right to make alterations to bookings due to unforeseen circumstances.

Barring unforeseen circumstances, we expect you to keep to agreed check in and check out times (+/- 15 minutes). Ann & Bill live some drive away. We reserve the right to withhold money from your bond if they are kept waiting over 15 minutes.

The number of guests should not exceed the number agreed in writing. We reserve the right to charge for excess guests not agreed with the owners in advance.

Parties and functions are strictly prohibited. The price charged is for domestic use only and not commercial. 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 loss of your bond and/or additional payments.

Smoking is strictly prohibited, due to the constant risk of bushfire. We may deduct extra charges from your bond should cigarette-related litter or any cigarette-related wear and tear be detected in and around Galwiji Homestead.

Damage, breakages, theft and loss are your responsibility during your stay.

The property should be left in the same state as its condition on arrival. Check-out time is 10 a.m. (unless otherwise agreed upon in advance), to allow time to prepare property for next guests.

Bond is payable at the same time as the balance amount. The bond will be refunded in full within 14 days, subject to the above conditions being met.

The bond is designed to cover any additional costs incurred including but not limited to, any breakage, damage or excess cleaning requirements, extra guests beyond those declared.

We take no responsibility for any loss to your personal property.

We hope you enjoy your stay at Galwiji Homestead.
