A damage deposit of $250NZ per unit is required at check-in. This amount can be paid in cash or will be pre-authorised from the guest’s debit or credit card upon arrival. The bond will be released when the room is checked and found acceptable after the guest has departed.

The registered guest is liable for the following damages:

-      Damage to the apartment furnishings, fixtures, and appliances caused by misuse or carelessness during their stay

We hope guests appreciate this policy as we cannot re-let the apartment until it is restored to the original standard.
