and on receipt of down payment and postdated cheque for balance including
the security deposit of $300.
4. Security Deposit
A security deposit of $300 CDN is required with all bookings. The Owner will refund this deposit to you within 14 days of the end of your stay, providing there has been no additional cleaning required or damage to the cottage or the equipment supplied. Any additional repairs/cleaning are your responsibility and will be deducted from the deposit.
Any cancellation made by the client must be in writing to the Owner. In the unfortunate event that you have to cancel your vacation, the Owner will try its best to re-rent the selected dates. If the Owner is successful in re-booking the accommodation for part or all of the period of the cancelled booking, it shall refund to the Client the monies collected for part or all of the booking period less an administration fee of $75. CDN per cancelled week or part thereof. If the Owner is unable to re-book the accommodation for any part of the vacation period at all, then all monies paid by the Client to the Owner shall be forfeited to the Owner.

The Owner reserves the right to make any changes it deems necessary to more accurately reflect the cottage property. Appliances, TV's, VCR's and other such equipment are supplied at the discretion of the Owner as an added feature for the Client. While every attempt will be made to ensure that such equipment and all other appliances are in working order for a Client's vacation, should any breakdown or other situation occur whereby these items are not available for the term of the rental period, neither the Company or the Owner take responsibility for replacing or refunding the Client for the lack of use of these elements.
Clients who have guests at the property in excess of the pre-authorized number are subject to either immediate eviction without refund or a $150 CDN per night per guest charge, at the discretion of the Owner. Sub-letting of the cottage property is not permitted. Where separate parties will be occupying the cottage property at different time periods, Cottage Rental Application Forms must be completed by each party. Camping, tenting, trailers or other additional accommodation facilities will not be allowed unless previous written permission has been granted by the Owner. Please note that ANY person, REGARDLESS of age is counted as a person in the occupancy of a cottage.
All pets at the cottage must be pre approved and recorded on the rental contract. All pets must be up to date on vaccinations. All dog poop must be scooped and disposed of from the cottage lawn, beach and driveway area. Failure to do so will result in a $30.00 clean up fee. We take this matter very seriously.
