All monies paid will be forfeited.
Adequate identification is required at time of check-in to verify your identity. A current drivers license, passport or other form of photo identification (ID) will be asked for prior to check-in. We require all credit card usage to be accompanied by this ID.
If you do not agree with this policy, then you must arrange an alternative payment process, ensuring that any EFT money transfer has cleared our account 5-days prior to your arrival and that you have adequate cash on arrival to cover the security bond / deposit.

This bond will then be returned on departure by cheque once the apartment has been checked by our staff.
