Refunds are not given for late arrivals or early departures. Management reserves the right to re-let bookings not taken by 6:00 pm on the booked date, unless notice of late arrival is given. EFT payments preferred, or credit card & cash only. The tariff is inclusive of the entire cottage inventory, but does not include swimming or beach towels. Phones in each unit are charged for separately at a premium to the Telkom rate. Cots are available at a nominal daily charge. Please arrange prior to arrival.
We regret no pets are allowed. If your arrival flight is early morning, you are welcome to leave your luggage at reception until your cottage is ready to be occupied. If you have a late flight departure, it is best to reserve your cottage for that night as well. If that is not possible, you are welcome to leave your luggage at reception, but will need to collect it before 15h30 on week-ends and public holidays, and 16h30 weekdays, as the office closes at that time.

Please note that we will require a R1000 key and breakage deposit on arrival. We will ask to do a manual imprint of your credit card, which we will destroy again after the cottage keys have been returned and housekeeping has checked your cottage after your departure.
