This information is vital to the smooth running of the resort and to maintain our high standard.
To maintain a good standard for our guests, we require certain conditions be complied with. We appreciate most will respect our property, but the occasional abuse requires that we state the following conditions:
It is a condition that guests leave Cabins in the Clouds in a clean condition. This means the kitchen will be left as you found it, and garbage taken to the outside bins. Rubbish and recycling bins are both provided.
Cabins in the Clouds reserves the right to charge guests for any costs incurred due to additional cleaning, if the above conditions are not met. A minimum fee of $50 per cabin applies for additional cleaning and laundering.
Note: Please advise at the time of booking if you would prefer to pay this additional cleaning fee, which will be added to the tariff for your stay.
Only babies under 6 months old, who are not mobile, are permitted to stay at Cabins in the Clouds, which is a child-free resort.
Disturbance to our neighbours, including excessive noise, is prohibited and loud music etc must cease at 10pm.
All waste water is processed by an envirocycle septic system that treats the waste water and recycles it for use on the gardens at Cabins in the Clouds. Please ensure that nothing other than toilet paper is flushed down the toilet, and fats and solids are removed from dishes prior to washing up. Any fee incurred in repairing the system due to tenant negligence will be at the expense of the tenants.
We advise that where damage or major soiling occurs to the cabin and surrounds, including appliances, furniture, furnishings, bedding, fittings, and spa, we reserve the right to charge guests with the costs incurred of replacement, repair, cleaning or otherwise, bringing such items and equipment back to their original condition.
The number of guests must not exceed the number stated at the time of booking. All rates quoted are for twin share.
Rooms not paid for will be locked off to reduce cleaning costs.

Smoking is prohibited within all buildings, including your cabin. If any evidence of cigarette smoke residue inside the cabin is found, an automatic fee of $200 will be charged to your credit card for cleaning and for laundering of all soft furnishings. Ensure that you do not smoke near any open windows or doors at your cabin.
Do not overload the firebox as this will cause the unit to overheat and will irreparably damage the firebricks lining the firebox. This cost of replacement of firebricks is $70.
Do not set the spa so that the water is too hot, as this can cause the spa to over-heat and the spa to cut out. Do not sit on the spa cover. It is filled with foam and will break if any weight is put on it. Do not leave the cover in a place where it can be damaged, and ensure it is secured down with the straps whenever the spa is not in use. This cost of replacement ranges from $850 to $2000 depending on the type of cover.

Accordingly, this rate does not allow for the extra costs associated with functions in terms of cleaning, garbage removal, wear and tear, damage, repairs etc. Any unauthorised parties or events will be closed down. You will also be removed from the resort and any monies paid will be forfeited.
