Booking Terms & Conditions


The contract is for a short-term holiday rental of the property specified on the booking form made between the client and Cavere Property Management Ltd ("the property owners") and is binding from such time that booking is made and inclusive of all the following conditions:
By making a booking the client contracts on behalf of himself/herself and all those in his/her party and represents that he/she has the authority to accept these conditions on behalf of and binding upon all guests in his/her party.

Bookings are accepted on the understanding that the property is taken for holiday purposes only and that the number of people in each property is limited to that entered on the booking form.

The client and any friends or family of the client visiting the property while the client is staying there must adhere to the conditions of the contract, including the rules and procedures contained in the information folder provided in the property. If inviting friends to visit, the client must first seek the permission of the owners.


A non-refundable deposit of 20% of the total cost of the rental is payable on booking if the booking is made more than four weeks before the start of the rental. Bookings are provisional until a deposit is received. The balance shall be payable four weeks before the commencement of the rental. Non-payment of the balance of the rent on or after the due date may be construed as a cancellation of the contract by the client. Key collection details will be provided when the full balance of rent is paid.

Security Bond

A returnable security bond of £150.00 is added to the final holiday payment. This bond will be refunded within 1 week of the customers departure providing the property is left in good order and the keys and parking fob and parking permit have been left in the property.

On receipt of the notice of cancellation Cavere Property Management Ltd will seek to re-let the property for the period of booking.
