Terms and Conditions – Coffs Coast Accommodation



(a) Direct booking with Coffs Coast Accommodation.

(i) To book a property directly with Coffs Coast Accommodation, you need to pay an initial deposit of 50% of the total booking tariff. If you haven't organised payment with Coffs Coast Accommodation, the balance payment will be processed automatically 30 days before your arrival. If Coffs Coast Accommodation cannot process the outstanding amount, or if you fail to make a payment due to them in full and on time, they will treat your booking as cancelled by you.

(ii) If your booking is for a period longer than 31 days, Coffs Coast Accommodation will split your booking into two or more instalment payments. The initial payment of 50% of the first instalment is due as a deposit, and the balance of the first instalment is due 30 days before your arrival. Coffs Coast Accommodation will automatically process each subsequent payment as and when it is due.

(iii) If you make a booking within 30 days of your specified arrival date, you must pay the total amount at the time of booking.

(iv) Once Coffs Coast Accommodation receives the initial deposit or full payment, they will send you an email confirming your reservation. The contract between you and Coffs Coast Accommodation will commence on receipt of your payment. Receipt of a confirmation email is subject to the booking conditions.

(v) Payment of the deposit confirms your acknowledgement and acceptance of the Terms and Conditions. You should carefully check the details of your booking before making any payment, as well as the confirmation email after payment, and inform Coffs Coast Accommodation immediately of any errors or omissions.

Note: If you are arranging a booking on behalf of additional guests, you must ensure that every other guest meets all requirements and standards as set by Coffs Coast Accommodation. Before booking the property, all guests should know and agree to these Terms and Conditions, including all rules and restrictions outlined below.


((i) The company, Coffs Coast Accommodation, will make every effort to ensure that the property is available as booked, but they reserve the right to make alterations to bookings if unforeseen circumstances arise (such as fire, flood, or structural damage). The company does not anticipate having to make any changes to the booking, but sometimes problems do occur, and alterations or cancellations may be necessary.

(ii) If the customer cancels or amends their booking 30 days or more prior to the scheduled arrival date, they will receive a full refund less a 3% merchant fee.

(iii) If the customer cancels their booking within 30 days of the scheduled arrival date, they will not receive a refund.

(iv) Please note ALL cancellations will incur a $100 cancellation fee. In summary, if the customer needs to cancel or amend their booking, they should inform the company as soon as possible and be aware that the amount of refund they will receive depends on how far in advance of the arrival date they cancel or amend the booking.


(i) Coffs Coast Accommodation will make every effort to ensure the property is available as booked. However, Coffs Coast Accommodation reserve the right to make alterations to bookings due to unforeseen circumstances (e.g. fire, flood, structural damage). We would not expect to have to make any changes to your booking, but sometimes problems occur, and we may have to make alterations or, very occasionally, cancel reservations.

(ii) If the company needs to cancel or change the customer's booking, they will notify the customer as soon as is reasonably possible and inform them of the cancellation or change. If the company cancels the customer's booking, they will refund any fees the customer has already paid. However, the company will not be liable to compensate the customer for any fees they may have paid to any third party in connection with their holiday (such as costs for travel, entertainment, activities, or insurance). In summary, the company will make every effort to ensure that the property is available as booked, but they reserve the right to make alterations or cancellations if unforeseen circumstances arise. If they do cancel the booking, the customer will receive a refund for any fees paid to the company, but they will not be compensated for any fees paid to third parties.


If a guest makes a booking through an OTA and makes payments directly to the OTA, the payment and cancellation policies will be as stated within the OTA. In other words, the terms and conditions set by the OTA will apply to the booking, including the payment and cancellation policies. In summary, if a guest books a property through an OTA and pays the OTA directly, the payment and cancellation policies will be governed by the OTA's terms and conditions.

(b) By accepting these terms, you agree to pay the accommodation fees in total, and you authorise Coffs Coast Accommodation to collect the total amount referred to in the booking summary immediately unless your booking falls under the conditions set out in OTA payments. No-shows will be responsible for the entire accommodation fees for the booking (and you authorise Coffs Coast Accommodation to deduct such sums from the credit or debit card details you supplied when booking).

In the event of a fault in the common area, e.g., the lift not working or there is no hot water, we will notify the body corporate of the defect immediately. However, the existence of the fault will not entitle you to any discount on the booking fee. We assure you that all our apartments are in quality buildings and that common area faults are always attended to by the body corporate promptly.

(e) Scheduled and Unscheduled Maintenance, Trades and Repairs: We arrange regular maintenance and repairs on all properties. When possible, we try to schedule these services outside of bookings; however, during busy periods or circumstances outside our control, this is not practicable. Therefore, you agree to allow repair and maintenance services during your stay. Examples may include but are not limited to pool cleaning and maintenance, garden maintenance, electrical repairs, appliance repairs and replacement, and other services. If you refuse a service that has been booked as scheduled or unscheduled during your stay, you agree that you are liable to pay the service call-out fee.


Before your arrival, Coffs Coast Accommodation will pre-authorise a security deposit payment using the credit card provided, you must provide your credit card number, expiry date and CVV are to be provided prior to arrival. A bond claim may be for, but is not limited to, the following reasons; excess cleaning fee (inc BBQ), damage to property, theft of property, garbage removal, breakages, late check out. The Security Bond will be credited to your card within seven days following your departure, less any deductions per the conditions listed below. Once the property has been inspected and considered, at the absolute discretion of Coffs Coast Accommodation, to be in the same condition as when you arrived. Compensation for damage, loss or theft, any excess cleaning that may be necessary after your stay or payment of penalties for overstaying or breach of house rules or for any other breaches of these Terms & Conditions will be applied against the Bond. Coffs Coast Accommodation will be entitled to make further deductions from this credit or debit card over and above the pre-authorisation should such charges be required. Furthermore, should the cost of repairs or replacement caused by damage exceeds the amount of the Bond or the credit available, Coffs Coast Accommodation has the right to pursue you for the entire amount plus expenses. Some reasons for a bond claim, include but are not limited to excess cleaning fee (inc BBQ), damage to property, theft of property, garbage removal, breakages, late check out. In the unlikely event a property sustains an insurance event that precludes the availability of a property, the owners of the booked property reserve the right to alter or amend any scheduled reservation before the check-in date. We will offer you the opportunity to rebook another property if one is available, rebook alternate dates or provide you with a full refund. Please refer to the annexure in this document for the Security Bond Agreement.
