Terms and Conditions of Holiday Tenancy with Coffin Bay Holiday Rentals
It is the responsibility of all guests to be aware of and act in accordance to the following holiday rental conditions. By confirming your reservation you are acknowledging acceptance of these rules.
Our properties are holiday houses, not party houses – please consider your neighbours
Guests must not create noise that is offensive to neighbours, especially between 10pm and 8am.

Early check-in or late check-out can at times be negotiated at a fee – please contact 0427 844 568
Please secure all doors and windows on departure, and return the key to the place the key was collected.
- Security Bond
A security bond or credit card details are held as security to cover any extra expense incurred during your stay. The amount of the bond varies between properties. Any bond deductions will be followed with an explanation and tax invoice for costs incurred. If the security bond has been paid with the booking, this will be refunded at the end of the month following your departure. If credit card details are supplied, these will be destroyed following your departure.
Key information will be sent to you in a pre-arrival email 2 days prior to arrival.

Respect residents and neighbours by keeping noise to a minimum especially between 10pm and 8am. We want you to enjoy your stay, but please be aware of the impact of your noise on others and keeping our neighbours happy is of paramount importance. Noise and music should not impact on any other property and noise levels are to be respectful at all times. There is to be no outdoor music or outdoor entertaining after 10pm. Noise complaints will result in bond deductions and possible evictions.
- Bedding and Linen
It is our policy that beds must only be used with full linen. Any person found to have been in breach of this condition (sleeping directly on protectors) will be charged an additional laundering fee deducted from the security bond.
All properties are equipped with mattress and pillow protectors plus doonas, pillows and covers (except Shuck Yeah - guests must provide their own quilt covers).
Full linen is included in some properties – please check before your arrival.
If linen is not included in a property, guests can either bring linen (sheets, pillow cases and towels), or arrange for linen hire through Coffin Bay Linen Service.

- Age Limit/No of Guests
Properties will not be available to any person under the age of 21 without adult supervision unless prior approval has been obtained from Coffin Bay Holiday Homes.
The number of persons sleeping at the property is not to exceed the number of beds provided. Additional beds are available for hire at selected properties. If numbers are exceeded without prior negotiations either an additional per person charge will apply or the tenancy may be terminated and full bond retained and monies forfeited. Swags, tents, campervans or caravans are not permitted.
- Caravans and Tents
No caravans or tents are permitted on the holiday property.
A small selection of our homeowners will allow pets on the property; however pets must remain outside only unless specified on an individual basis and negotiated with management at the time of reservation. A local dogcatcher monitors domestic dog laws within the region, and it is the pet owner’s responsibility to abide by these laws. Any additional cleaning or maintenance required as a result of pets will be deducted from the security bond and or charged at cost.
All Coffin Bay Holiday Rentals properties are considered self contained and generally include a range of kitchen appliances and utensils, television, furnishing, barbeque, washing machine etc. Properties are furnished and decorated to the owner’s taste. Our website contains information on appliances in each property.
All properties will have limited cleaning supplies (dishwashing liquid, dishwashing tablets, dish cloth, tea towels, soap, toilet paper) but guests will need to bring additional supplies if the accommodation is for a longer stay. It is recommended guests bring all catering supplies including salt and pepper.
- Gas Refills
Large Household Cylinders – Please contact the office. If you have two bottles, and swap them over, please let the office know so we can arrange the empty cylinder to be refilled.
BBQ Bottles – please “swap and go” at Coffin Bay IGA. Let the IGA staff know the name of the property (or take the magnet on the fridge showing property name) and they will charge Coffin Bay Holiday Rentals.
Please be water wise.
- Cleaning on Departure
Guests are asked to leave the property Clean and Tidy. A cleaner is employed to check over each holiday property on guests’ departure and to attend to cleaning issues accordingly. We ask that you leave the property clean and tidy on departure and report any breakages or maintenance issues on the provided feedback form. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES is fish cleaning to be done inside the property.
- Rubbish Removal
Please place council supplied wheelie bins on the kerbside ready for early morning collection on Tuesday for Coffin Bay and Wednesday for Dutton Bay.

The landlord and property manager reserve the right to enter the property at any reasonable time to attend to repairs or maintenance.

If you need to cancel your booking please contact the office as soon as possible.
We endeavour to provide a full refund less an administration fee.
Our formal policy is:
If a guest cancels a confirmed booking more than 1 month prior to check in, the deposit will be returned less a $100 cancellation fee. This covers the booking fee we are charged by our Booking Manager and other administration fees.
If a guest cancels a confirmed booking less than 1 month prior to check in, there is no refund unless the property can be rebooked. If the property is rebooked, monies paid will be refunded less a $100 cancellation fee.
In the event of advance bookings being cancelled by the owner and/or agent, a full refund will apply. Due consideration will be given in consultation with the owner, to any cancellation at any time occasioned by exceptional circumstances.
We cannot accept responsibility for actions taken by the owner of the premises outside our control, and we reserve the right to cancel any booking, as per the owner’s instruction. In this event we will notify you as soon as possible and do our best to arrange other accommodation or dates suitable to you, failing which all deposit monies paid will be refunded, but no other claim, or action or demand shall exist in or be made by either party.
Bookings are taken by the agent in good faith; however, the guest acknowledges that the agent does not own the property and that the owner may instruct the agent to cancel or ask the guest to amend booking dates at any time up to the day of check in. Similarly, no responsibility will be accepted by the agent for errors, omissions or descriptions of holiday properties.
- Holiday Cancellation and Protection Insurance
Guests should consider taking out comprehensive holiday cancellation and protection insurance with a reputable insurance company to cater for any unforeseen circumstances which may arise including accident, ill health or any other matters beyond the guests’ reasonable control.
- Property Rates
Property owners set the property rates in conjunction with the agent. Rates may be subject to change for bookings made more than 3 months in advance by the discretion of the owner.
Our aim is to maintain a high level of service and accommodation. These conditions of tenancy are necessary to protect the owner’s valuable holiday properties and to ensure that the property remains at a high standard for the enjoyment of subsequent holiday makers.
We thank you for your reservation and trust you enjoy your stay in Beautiful Coffin Bay.
