Terms & Conditions

GENERAL INFORMATION Please read carefully and sign below agreeing to the Terms and
Conditions of this agreement.
Thankyou for choosing to stay with “Sambar Hills”
Self Contained Cabin Stay
“Luxurious Queen room with panoramic views of the mountains and vineyard, with open
ensuite to master room. Adjoining lounge and kitchenette with alfresco deck extending
from the main entry, equip with private use of gas BBQ cooking facilities. Designed for
couples, however can sleep additional occupants on the fold out lounge- Max # guests 4”
Bookings: A booking will not be confirmed until we have received a deposit and a copy of the signed
agreement. All transactions will be done in Australian dollars.
Guest numbers: See property information for maximum guest numbers, a full guest list must be
provided and not to exceed the maximum number of guests allowed. (sleeps #2 comfortably, but can
accommodate 4 persons)
Rates: See property information or contact Sambar Hills
Party Policy: Zero Tolerance. NOTE: Sambar Hills follows best practice policies to ensure
the properties we represent for short term accommodation are safe, secure and protected – and not
damaged. As these properties are not in commercial areas Government regulators and Councils also
have strict rules and requirements for holiday letting and will prosecute those who book properties for
holiday/short term who don’t abide by the short term holiday letting regulations. Reasons such as:
noise, disturbance, parties and overcrowding etc... Sambar Hills represent the luxury end of
the short term holiday letting market and we have fair, yet strict guidelines also. We require an
undertaking from guests and clients who book for short term ‘accommodation only’ not to have
parties, events or gatherings and give an assurance that the property rented is for the use of
registered guests and for the use of those people. A day/evening visit/luncheon/dinner by a few
friends is fine if confirmed with Sambar Hills team in advance.
Party/Disturbance Procedures: In the event an unsolicited event/party ensues at Sambar Hills managed
property, then the procedure is as follows: Our Concierges will attend first and if
the issue is not resolved attend again immediately (at your cost) and attempt to resolve the concern. If a
resolution is not forthcoming they will request immediate eviction as per this agreement. If this is met
with resistance the Concierges are instructed to call Private Security (at your cost for a minimum of
4hrs for 2x Security Personal). Our Private Security team will secure the premises, safeguard from
damage and remain indefinitely or until the property is secure (this is at the Security/Caretaker’s
discretion). The Police will also be called and if Councils are alerted further fines to you may arise. By
agreeing to these Terms and Conditions below you agree to this procedure and all costs being as set
out in clause 13. As explained above, this costly, zero tolerance approach is necessary to protect our
homes. We are not unreasonable and encourage guests to talk to us if they are concerned –
communication can solve anything. We know that 99.9% of our guests are respectful and responsible
people who simply wish to unwind in comfort and enjoy their holiday – this is what we strive to
provide. Please, if in doubt, talk to us as these measures are not designed to prevent our guests from
the normal, relaxing use of a holiday home – only to prevent those who believe having a party is
1 of 5acceptable. This includes and extends to loud music being played. Feel free to play your own music, but if it
exceeds a comfortable level, whereby people are unable to have a conversation, then the music may be
turned off and ultimately confiscated. Again, we understand the need to relax and unwind, but we also need
to respect fellow guests. Music around campfires should be turned off at 2300.
Welcome: We welcome you to this beautiful property where guests can relax and unwind in comfort
and luxury. Sambar Hills strives to ensure that each and every guest enjoys an experience
beyond their expectations; if you have any special requests please don’t hesitate in contacting us. We
ask that you please read and abide by the terms and conditions (especially our strictly enforced ‘no
party policy’) We ask guests to show the upmost care and responsibility as it is expected that the
property and furnishings be returned in the exact same condition at the end of a stay as at the
beginning. Before booking please understand it is a requirement that any damage and/or accidents,
unintentional or otherwise, are a responsibility of the guest and that the guest will meet these costs,
small or large. Given its definition we do accept that accidents may occur but any accident is the
responsibility of the guest. Of course Sambar Hills will always go above and beyond to
repair/replace by the most cost effective means in which to restore the
property to the same condition as it was before the guest took occupancy. On arrival you will find the
key in the entry door, open, ready for your stay. Please leave key on the coffee table upon check out.
It is important that guests choose a property to suit their expectations whilst knowing ours, it is our
expectation that our properties are solely used for quiet holiday purposes and that guests understand their
responsibilities before booking. Of course if there are any questions, please ask and we will be more than
happy to explain to ensure you experience your perfect getaway. We thank you and look forward to
welcoming you soon.
The booking will be confirmed on receipt of full cleared payment and the
relevant box is ticked and the agreement signed accepting the Terms and Conditions. The person
