All bookings for Jetty Road Retreat and Country House Retreat are subject to the following terms and conditions. You will be required to provide credit card details as security.

As a very small business, late cancellations often result in empty accommodation which has a significant impact on our business. The booking and cancellation policies stated here apply to all bookings. Travel insurance is recommended for all bookings to provide adequate protection against unforeseen circumstances and cancellation of travel.

Booking Terms

  • The quickest and easiest way to book your stay with us is by booking direct online via the Book Your Stay button. You will get instant confirmation and the best rate. Alternatively you can make a booking over the phone by calling us on 03 5156 3224 (overseas dial +61 3 5156 3224).
  • All prices shown are per cabin/house per night in AUD and inclusive of GST.  Please note published rates are based on the 2 guests (Jetty Road Retreat) and 4 guests (Country House Retreat). Additional guest charges will be calculated when actual number of guests and required dates are selected at time of booking.
  • All bookings require a first night deposit payable by credit card, to secure the booking. An additional deposit equal to 50% of the tariff is required for peak period bookings, payable 3 months from arrival.
  • Deposit payments are generally processed within 24 hours when you book online (ie – not automatically at time of booking). We accept Mastercard, Visa and Amex. A 1.5% surcharge applies for all credit card transactions.
  • The balance of the tariff is due on arrival day, and will be processed on the credit card provided at the time of booking, unless otherwise agreed. To avoid credit card surcharge, balance payments can also be paid via bank transfer.
  • Bookings can only be confirmed 12 months in advance.  Any bookings we receive with an arrival date greater than 12 months from reservation date shall be treated as enquiries, whereby we will contact you to confirm rates and availability.
