1. Booking Conditions

a)  All Guests booking accommodation at Albany Waves must be over 21 years old, hold a valid credit card, take up occupancy of the property for the entire duration of the stay and agree to the Terms & Conditions of occupancy.

By agreeing to these Terms and Conditions the Guest accepts all responsibility for themselves and other occupants of the premises. Should these conditions not be met then Albany Waves reserve the right to refuse to accept your booking at any stage.

  • Long weekends – 3 night minimum
  • Easter & Christmas Holidays – 5 night minimum

Albany Waves accept Visa, Master Card, American Express and China Union Credit Cards.

2. Confirmation

Details of your booking with these Terms and Conditions will be sent to you for your confirmation.

Your booking is not considered confirmed until you have received written notification from Albany Waves.

3. Bond ($1000.00)

A valid credit card is required prior to occupancy.

Guests are responsible for the house and contents for the duration of their stay.     Broken, damaged or lost goods will be replaced at your expense and it is much more pleasant to arrange this with you, rather than just charge you so please notify us if you break, damage or lose any items in the property.

The property should be left in a similar state to its condition upon arrival.  Please wash, dry and put away your dishes including those used in the dishwasher.  The barbecue equipment should be cleaned.  It is acceptable to leave rubbish in the rubbish bins, but any rubbish that does not fit into the bins provided should be removed.

Any cleaning time over and above what is regularly undertaken to clean the accommodation will incur an excess cleaning fee.

4. Cancellation Policy

Cancellations must be received more than 14 days prior to arrival with peak holiday periods requiring a minimum of 28 days notice. Cancellations not received within the above times will result in the forfeit of your first night’s booking fee. The balance of your booking fee will be refunded.

We may consider a change of booking for cancellations if notification is received 28 days prior to the original booking date.  All changes in booking are subject to availability and any price increases that may have occurred between the time of the original booking and the new booking date.

There is no refund for early or unscheduled departure under any circumstances.  Should you make a booking and not arrive on the day,  you will be charged 100% of your booking tariff, regardless of what deposit you have already paid. The charge will automatically be charged to your credit card and a copy of the tax invoice will be mailed to you.

5. Arrival / Departure

Check out: 10:00am*

A late check out may be arranged depending on the extra time requested and our availability.  Unauthorised late checkouts may attract a fee.

6. Number of Guests

The accommodation can only be occupied by the number of persons stated on the booking confirmation form.  Albany Waves reserves the right to refuse occupancy of the property if this condition is not observed.

7. Enjoying your stay

Whilst every effort has been made to ensure your privacy, please appreciate there are others close by to the common areas and your apartment.

Visitors are welcome however to ensure the comfort of others, we request that your visitors vacate the premises by 11.00pm.

Excessive noise levels will not be tolerated and Management reserves the right to ask you to leave the premises without refund if you or your guests disrupt the enjoyment of other guests.

* Definition of Noise: If other people can hear your Music, TV and/or Voices from outside your beach house after 11.00pm, then it is Noise.

8. Travelling with Children

Our luxury beach houses have been designed to provide stylish, comfortable and well equipped holiday accommodation to suit couples, friends and family groups.

Whilst we welcome children, our accommodation offers a level of refinement and privacy more suited to adults.

We respectfully request parents to supervise their children at all times and ensure they do not climb balustrades or balcony walls endangering themselves or others.

If staying in Driftwood, please do not allow young children to ride alone in the lift.

For the safety of your children and the comfort of others, please do not allow children to play in the driveway.  There are many great parks and beaches nearby to stretch little legs and burn off some youthful exuberance.

Stairwell guards, high chairs and small portacots, complete with linen are available for use.  Please request these items when booking to ensure that we have them prepared for you.

9. Guest’s Property

Albany Waves takes no responsibility for personal belongings, baggage, vehicles and other property of any description of the Guest throughout the duration of your stay nor for items left on the premises after you have vacated.

10. Pets

Sorry, pets are not permitted.

11. Smoking

Smoking is not permitted inside the houses or on balconies.

If you smoke outside please dispose of cigarette butts thoughtfully.

12. Right to Revoke or Refuse Bookings

Albany Waves reserve the right to revoke or refuse to honour any booking, at any time before or during the rental period, which may be, in their opinion, unsuitable for the property.

Albany Waves has a strict “No Party” policy, and as such reserves the right to refuse bookings for ‘Schoolies’, Hens and Bucks parties or similar.

Failure to comply with any of the above Terms and Conditions, may result in the immediate cancellation of your booking without refund.
