Cancellation by the Property Owner

Number of Guests
The maximum number of people entitled to stay at this property is 5 and furthermore, only those people named on the booking form are entitled to stay. If it is found that more people than agreed are using the property, this will be considered a breach of contract and the holidaymaker and his/her party will be asked to leave immediately without any refund. Sub letting or assignation of the let is prohibited.
Pets are allowed in the property subject to the property owner's agreement. All pets must be house trained. No more than 1 dog is permitted unless agreed by the owner at the point of booking, where a surcharge may be applied. Pets must not be left unaccompanied in the property at any time and must not be allowed on the beds or furniture. The holidaymaker shall be liable for all damage caused by his/her pet or any pet belonging to the holidaymaker's party. A charge will be made for any additional cleaning required. The property owner cannot be held responsible for any accident or injury to a pet during their stay. This is an active crofting area and all pets must be kept under control outside at all times.
Due to the unprecedented rise in the cost of energy, bookings will now be required to pay an electricity charge to cover usage. We feel this is preferable to large increases in the house rental costs per week. Any significant extra Kilowatt hours used beyond the charge will be notified to the holidaymaker and an additional payment will be required. The current cost of supply @ November 2022 is £0.2799/Kwh and is variable in line with our suppliers. This method is also cheaper and preferable to installing a pay as you go system in the house. The charge may vary from time to time in line with average usage, and costs of supply.
Since the introduction of the charge it has been found that only December/ January/February are likely to attract an additional cost, but due to its coastal nature and the degree of insulation of the house, these costs remain small, seasonal conditions excepted.
Arrival and Departure Time
Every effort will be made to have the property available from 15:00 on the day of arrival. The property must be vacated by 10:00 on the day of departure. Late departure will result in an additional charge being made. Information about keys and how to collect them will be provided 2 weeks before your holiday. If you have not been contacted in this regard before your trip please call 07860 884659 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The property owner takes no responsibility for the personal possessions of the holidaymaker or the holidaymaker's party. Vehicles and possessions are left entirely at the risk of the holidaymaker.Children must be supervised at all times.
We would like to think the holidaymaker and party would treat the property as they would their own home and at the end of the holiday the property is left in a clean and tidy condition. The property owner retains the right to make an additional charge for cleaning should the property not be left in a similar condition to the way it was found at the start of the holiday.
The holidaymaker should make every effort to keep the property, fixtures and fittings and all contents in the same state of repair and condition as at the start of the holiday. Any accidental damage or breakages should be reported to the property owner (or the housekeeper) prior to departure. The property owner retains the right to make an additional charge for damage and breakages.
