We will also be required to Evacuate all guests on EXTREME CODE DAYS rated days. Every effort will be made to contact you, our Guest prior to arrival on these days and either reschedule your booking or refund you. Due to the Area restriction we will be unable to find alternative accommodation in this Region.  All payments for nights not redeemed will be refunded.

To maintain a good standard for our guests we require certain conditions to be complied with. We appreciate most will respect our property but the occasional abuse requires that we state the following conditions.

Number of Guests should not exceed the number stated on the Confirmation Notice or subsequently agreed in writing or email. Fees will apply for excess guests not agreed with the owners in advance.

Parties and Functions are strictly prohibited. No smoking allowed. The price charged is for domestic use only and not commercial. Accordingly this rate does not allow for the extra wear associated with functions in terms of cleaning, garbage removal, wear and tear, repairs etc. Use contrary to this may result in loss of your bond and/or additional payments to the credit card supplied at time of booking. If the cover is left off the BBQ or the BBQ is not cleaned there will be a $100 fee.

Property Representations - We at the Lorne Collection have done our best to assure that the descriptions and photographs on our website are an accurate representation of the accommodations as of the time we inspected them.  However, as we are working with many individual property owners, it is not always possible for our website to immediately reflect all changes and upgrades to the accommodations.  In the event you find that the accommodation you rent is materially different than the representation made on our site, please notify us so that we may update our listing.  However, the Lorne Collection cannot be held responsible for any such discrepancies, as we are merely a booking agent for the property owners.

The owners of the property are not liable for loss to you of any personal belongings while you are in the property. You are strongly advised to arrange comprehensive travel insurance to include cancellation insurance and personal belongings since these items are not covered by the owners' insurance. The owners shall not be liable to the client: * for any temporary defect or stoppage in the supply of public services to the property for reasons beyond our control. * for any loss, damage or injury which is the result of adverse weather conditions, riot, strikes, or other matters beyond our control.

Limitation of Liability
The liability of the owners shall be limited to the amount of any rentals and deposits paid. In no event shall the owners be liable for consequential damages.

Please do not wait until you depart if you have any concerns. We prefer that you phone us immediately so that any such matters can be quickly resolved. Phone 0418534422
