How do I check into my villa?
We do not have an office on site, so a few days prior to your arrival we will email you your villa number, there is a safe box located outside the front door of each villa, simply enter the code you have been given and your keys will be inside.
What time can I check in at?
Check is from 2pm. We always endeavour to be flexible and provide early check-in where it is possible to do so. Check out by 10am sharp. If you require a later check-out please enquire. However this will depend solely on availability at that time.
How many bathrooms in each villa?
There is one bathroom in each of our villas. Some of our villas have a separate toilet
Are pillows and linen provided?
Yes. We supply pillows, linen and towels for your stay. There is information in the Guest information folder on how to make the pillows softer if they are not as you would like. We supply hand soap, you are advised to bring shampoo, conditioner etc with you for your stay.
What number can I contact if there is a problem during our stay as there is no reception?
If any issues arise during or before your stay, you can contact the office number 02 6372 0529 and this will divert to whichever member of staff is on call that particular day, all of our staff live locally and can be at the villas within a few minutes. Please leave a message if we happen to miss the call.
Do I have to pay for my accommodation in full at time of booking?
No, you do not have to pay the full amount at time of booking, however we do require a deposit equal to one nights accommodation charge per Villa. This must be received by Colonial Court Villas to confirm a booking. We accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express however a 1.5% charge applies to Amex. These are by far the quickest and easiest way to guarantee your reservation however you can pay by cheque or direct deposit the funds directly into our bank account.
Is there any cancellation fee, if I am forced to cancel due to unforseen circumstances?
We understand that plans do change and unexpected events can arise, however as an accommodation provider, it is of critical importance that we are given adequate notice of our guests’ booking intentions. While we endeavour to be as flexible as possible, when it comes to booking changes, our standard policy is as follows: A $50.00 cancellation fee per Villa will be applied to all bookings cancelled after a deposit has been processed or a credit card guarantee given. Cancellation 14 days before arrival date, the first night’s tariff becomes the cancellation fee. Cancellation on the day of check in or after check in, are subject to a cancellation fee equal to the full tariff of all days booked.
