We all change our minds from time to time. That's why you have a seven (7) day cooling off period that starts as soon as you have paid your initial deposit of 1 weeks rent and received a Booking Confirmation email from us. During this time you can cancel for any reason and receive a full refund of all money you have paid.
After this our standard booking terms and conditions apply. Contact our team for our full Cancellation Policy.
As with most rented apartments, we do ask you to pay a damage deposit which protects you should you cause any damage to anything in the room. The deposit you pay is equivalent to 5 weeks rent and needs to be paid at least 2 working days before your tenancy starts. Your deposit is held with the DPS and is fully refundable at the end of your tenancy, provided there’s no damage to the room.
