Booking and Cancellation Policy

Members can book up to seven consecutive nights. This can be booked up to one year & seven days in advance. Cancellation will attract a $25 administration fee. Where less than 28 days’ notice is given, payment may not be refunded. Generally, there will be a 50% refund for cancellation from 29 to 56 days out from the rental period. There may be very sound reasons for needing to cancel a booking and those reasons will be considered, however, all refund decisions will be final.

Army and Police Homes

We have a reciprocal agreement with the Defence and Police. This enables our members to book homes 90 days in advance within each organisation.
​To request a booking, you will need to contact the Police or Defence directly. They may ask you to contact our office so we can send them confirmation of your membership.
