The Fine Print

PLEASE NOTE:  Due to the way Auckland Council has implemented their new rates on on-line accommodation providers, we are no longer taking any online-accommodation bookings on AirBNB, Bookabach or HomeAway.  

We wish to ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable stay, respecting neighbours and any others on the property, so please read the list below and ask us if you have any questions whatsoever.

  • A 50% deposit is required to be paid, before any booking is confirmed. The remaining 50% is due two weeks before arrival. All payments to us are non-refundable, unless we are unable to fulfill your booking.
  • Any booking may be cancelled by us for commercial reasons or factors outside our reasonable control.  In this case we will advise you as soon as possible that we are cancelling your booking, and fully refund the payments we have received from you or your booking agent. We will not be liable for any payments to you, beyond what you have paid us.
  • Your booking is for the stated number of adults and children. If this number increases please advise us two weeks prior to your arrival. Additional people may stay if approved in writing, on the beds provided. Any additional people present on the property, after midnight, will be charged at $45 per person per night.
  • If you are planning to invite people onto the property for a daytime visit, please contact us in advance for approval.
