BOOKING INFORMATION & ENQUIRIES
As regular travelers ourselves, we have included things that we always look for in a self-catering holiday experience to ensure your stay at Ocean View Retreat Lorne is as enjoyable as possible. We keep the property clean, well maintained and highly functional for enjoyable, hassle-free holiday living. We ask that you take care of our property and leave it in the condition you found it, other than for a routine clean and bedding / linen change.
When making an enquiry, we encourage you to ask us any questions you have based on your own specific personal preferences or needs.
We enjoy holidays most when we know what we're getting. As such, here are the things about the property that you may want to know:
- The location is up on a hill in Lorne, meaning you will have either a short drive 1 minute or a brief walk 5-10 minutes depending on fitness down a hill to get to the beach or main street. The benefits of the location are the great views and relative peace & quiet.
- The on-site car park is uncovered and big enough for two cars. The driveway is steep, but well engineered. There is minimal street parking, so parking for more than two cars cannot be guaranteed, especially during summer, school holidays and long weekends.
- We do not have 'block out' blinds on the windows in bedrooms.
- We do not provide equipment for young children, so you would need to bring anything you need in this regard.
- Hazards for young children include staircases, balconies and nearby driveways, so parents need to be vigilant and no responsibility is taken by the owners for these dangers.
- The property must only be used for private, residential usage and for the number of guests stated on your Booking Confirmation.
- No functions or parties may be conducted at the property. This includes any hosting meals for more than 6 people, unless agreed in writing in advance.
- Our property is NOT available for schoolies bookings under any circumstances.
- No pets are allowed anywhere on the property inside or out.
- People may only sleep in the beds provided.
- A strictly no smoking policy applies in the house, including on deck / balcony areas. You may smoke at street level and dispose of buts in a considerate way.
- For enquiries more than 6 months in advance, we only accept bookings of 5 nights or more.
- Proof of identity is required to confirm a booking, even if payment has been made.
Not adhering to any of these conditions will be grounds for the loss of your bond damage deposit payment, and may result in the immediate termination of your Booking without refund. This is an extremely rare occurrence
Please ask questions if you are unsure about what to expect. Our aim is that you will want to return to this property year after year for your Lorne holidays.
