Hampton Beach House: Terms and Conditions
Note: Variances can be agreed on but only by arrangement with the owner in writing.
To secure a booking a 50% deposit is required. Bookings are not confirmed until this deposit is received. Payment of the rental deposit constitutes the clients acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.
Balance of the rental amount must be received no later than that stated in our confirmation email to you. Please ensure payments are made within the specified time limits or the booking will be cancelled and the owner has the right to cancel the booking and attempt to re let it. If your deposit is paid by credit card then final payment will automatically be deducted from that same credit card 30 or 60 days prior to your arrival unless otherwise notified in writing by the cardholder.
Cancellation if caused by the client, money paid is not refundable unless the house is re-let for the entire period for the same amount. If a refund is made due to the property being relet then a $50 cancellation fee will apply.
