Breakages and Damage

Although we understand that accidents do happen, obvious indiscriminate damage and uncleanliness in the house is not acceptable. Evidence of such abuse or wilful damage will incur additional charges for cleaning, repairs, and replacements. Please report any accidents or breakages as soon as possible. If it is a larger issue (e.g., the TV screen) we would like to agree on the cost with you before you leave to avoid any issues later.


Please do not move or rearrange the furniture, as it can cause unnecessary damage and requires additional cleaning time, which can be charged to your nominated credit card.


Strictly NO PETS allowed. Evidence of pets at the property will incur full loss of security bond ie $500.


Strictly NO SMOKING. If there is evidence of smoking inside the property, a minimum fee of $200 will be charged to cover additional cleaning.
