We do not like it to charge guests for not staying with us.

  • 60 days or more before arrival we will charge 25% of RACK rate
  • between 30 and 60 days before arrival we will charge 50% of RACK rate

We accept that cancellations done 30 days or less before arrival are due to unfortunate and unavoidable circumstances for our clients.

Late cancellations:
The cancellation charge is 50% of RACK rate and if the guest decides to rebook at any time during the subsequent 12 months (for bookings made in the same season as the original booking) we will only charge 50% of RACK for the new booking!!
