Cancellation Policy

If you need to cancel your *confirmed* reservation after you have paid your deposit and / or the full amount (balance)
we will do more than most others would do to refund you!  Cancellation must be made in writing to be valid.
Once received, we will review the days left prior to your arrival with a view to giving you the fullest possible refund
with the time frame you give us to work with (minus cancellation fee) ....as follows:

Cancel 60 days before arrival = refund of what you paid minus a $200 cancellation fee.
Cancel 30 days before arrival = 50% refund.
Cancel under 30 days = we refund if we can rebook some or all of the nights (you will receive the refund for the nights
we manage to rebook) at the rate we manage to get. We can not guarantee that someone else will come along to reserve
the time frame that your cancellation left for us vacant, but we will network with other rental owners for their ‘overflow’,
and we will advertise a *cancellation offer notice*. We may have to offer a further discounted rate…which will affect
the refund, as well, to fairly compensate loss.

*** No credit for lost nights due to delayed arrivals… or early departures ***
