However, should the house not be ready early then you are welcome to fill in the paperwork and leave a mobile number with reception so we can call you as soon as the house is ready. You are welcome to use any of the facilities prior to check in if you are waiting for your property.

What happens if we arrive late?

Should you arrive after reception closes then provisions will have been made for your arrival. You will still need to come to the reception area to check in, to the left of the reception doors there is a wooden letterbox which will have your welcome pack and keys in it. There will be a map included in the pack showing where your house is along with your keys. There is a piece of paper which needs to be bought to reception the following morning so you can leave a pre-authorisation.

Can we check in early?

Should you arrive before 4pm and your house is ready then we would be more than happy to allow you to check in. We can never guarantee that a house will be ready prior to 4pm, even out of season. During the summer months we do not offer an early check in due to our properties being changed over from previous guests.

What do we do when we arrive at Retallack?

When you arrive come straight to reception and we will go through all of the paperwork with you, take your pre-authorisation, explain a few things regarding your stay and then we will provide you with a map and keys and give you directions to your property.

I booked the holiday but my other party members will be arriving before me will they be able to check in?

The other members of your party will be able to check in before you, we prefer to carry out the pre-authorisation prior to anybody checking into the property but, as the person who booked the holiday, if you would like to be the person who provides us with the pre-authorisation then you can come to reception and carry this out once you arrive.

Booking

Can I chose to book a specific house/location?

If you would like a specific house/location then we will endeavour to ensure that your needs are met however we are unable to guarantee this.

How much deposit do I need to pay?

Upon booking, should your arrival date be more than 8 weeks away, then you would be required to pay a 25% deposit and the remaining balance would be due 8 weeks prior to arrival. If you book with less than 8 weeks to arrival then the full balance is due at the time of booking.

What if I cancel?

Should you wish to cancel then we can cancel the booking for you. All deposits paid are non-refundable, however, we can utilise the deposit you've paid and move your booking to another date for you so you don't lose any money. If you cancel between 4 and 8 weeks to arrival, when the full balance has been paid, then 50% of the booking value will be lost if we are unable to re-let the property. If you cancel with less than 4 weeks to arrival then the full balance of the booking will be lost.

What is the pre-authorisation on arrival for?
