This agreement is made on the basis that Culzean House ("the Property") is to be occupied by the holidaymakers for a holiday as mentioned in the Housing Act 1988 Schedule 1 paragraph 9 and the Holidaymakers acknowledge that the tenancy granted by this agreement is not an assured tenancy and that no statutory periodic tenancy will arise when it ends.

  9. In the event of the accommodation becoming unavailable (such as fire or flooding), the Owner will endeavour to provide the Guest with suitable alternative accommodation or will refund all monies paid or a proportion in the case of curtailment. We cannot, however pay any compensation or expenses as a consequence of such an event.

In the event of a booking being cancelled due to factors outwith the Owner's control, no refunds will be offered for rental or deposit payments made.  You may be able to claim any losses if the Guest/Holidaymakers have independent holiday insurance which covers for such cancellations due to force majeure.

However young pets i.e. puppies MUST be declared at the time of booking and authorised by the Owner.  If a puppy or young pet is taken to a property without the consent of the Owner this could result in you being asked to leave without compensation. When booking online it is advised you check the acceptance of your pet.

      1. Dogs must be under strict control at all times while in the property
      2. Any fouling of lawns etc. must be cleared up without delay.

The Holidaymaker must report and pay to the Owner the cost of any damage or breakages made during their holiday occupancy. The Owner reserves the right to make a charge where guests have contravened an Owner’s request for their property to be smoke free. (In order to comply with the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999 the amount of such a charge should not be more than the cost of the cleaning.)

In the event of there being cause for complaint concerning the Property, the matter shall be taken up with the Owner at once, (their details are supplied on the booking confirmation and they understand that they are the first point of contact should there be cause for complaint). It is important that this is done whilst you are still at the Property so that an on-the-spot investigation can be made if necessary and remedial action taken if required. In no circumstances will compensation be considered for complaints raised after the holiday has ended, when the Holidaymakers have denied the Owners the opportunity of investigating the complaint and endeavouring to remedy matters during the holiday. During out-of-office hours, an answer phone facility will be available which will be checked on a regular basis.
