The full balance must be received prior to check-in, otherwise Amongst the Vines Deluxe Retreat have the right to cancel the booking and attempt to re-let the house.
Please note although you are booking the entire house, you must book the correct number of people staying per room. The second queen bedroom will be locked unless there is a request and payment to use the room.

The following conditions apply:
Full refund for cancellations made within 48 hours of booking, if the check-in date is at least 14 days away.
50% refund for cancellations made at least 7 days before check-in.

Check-in and Check-out
Standard check-in is available from 2:00pm on the day of arrival and check-out is 11:00am on the day of your departure.
With prior arrangement we will try to be flexible and do our best to accommodate your preferred check in/out times.
The house will be unlocked for your arrival and keys will be available inside the house. Upon check-out, keys are to be left in the same place. A 'lost key' charge of $50 will be applied if the key is not returned upon check-out.
To ensure a tranquil experience we have a no visitor policy unless prior arrangements have been made. If unplanned guests do stay, there will be an additional charge of $130/person to cover costs.
Unfortunately, no pets are allowed.
Amongst the Vines Deluxe Retreat is situated on the grounds of a working vineyard and you may from time to time hear tractors, harvesters and spraying, especially if you are staying during the Vintage. None of these are intrusive and will not impact on your stay. The bird songs are usually the loudest noise at our property!
Ours is an organic vineyard and unfortunately, we cannot allow guests to walk through the vineyard unsupervised due to the risk of shoes and clothing potentially bringing in contamination and spreading pests and diseases.
At Amongst the Vines Deluxe Retreat we are blessed with an abundance of bird life and native animals. It is common to see kangaroos visiting from the nearby national park, as well as koalas nestling in the many gum trees on the property. We have also seen the occasional deer on the property.
In the warmer months brown and black snakes may be about and are venomous. Please consider this when you are walking around. If you see a snake- do not approach it. Keep calm and try to stay still. Snakes only react on movement and will not strike if they do not feel threatened.
Injury, Loss and Damage
No responsibility is taken for items left on the premises during your stay or after departure. Amongst the Vines Deluxe Retreat does accept liability for any injury, damage, loss of additional expenses caused directly or indirectly by events which are beyond our control.
Breakages or damages not caused by normal wear and tear will be charged to your credit card and an itemised account will be provided to you.
In the event that the property has been damaged, whether such damages are willful or not, it is the sole and absolute discretion of the owner to enter a debit on the supplied credit card details of the guest and the guest hereby authorises Amongst the Vines Deluxe Retreat to do so. Should you soil any linen or towels to the extent that it cannot be used again, the full replacement cost will be charged to your credit card.
Smoke Free Home
Amongst the Vines Deluxe Retreat is a smoke free home and we ask that you do not smoke in the house. If you would like to smoke, please do so outside with all the windows and doors closed. An ashtray is provided in the back alfresco and gazebo areas for your cigarette butts. Please do not butt your cigarettes near any part of the house or throw them away as this is a potential fire risk, particularly in summer.
A fee of $ 50 for professional deodorising will be charged if smoking inside the house is evident
