Bond requirements


For all bookings, we require a security bond of up to $1,500 (an Exclusive booking). A smaller amounts maybe requested if you booked Dantosa House or Dantosa Cottage.


Closer to your booking, we will contact you to request payment of the security bond using your credit card. Your credit card will be pre-authorised for an amount of up to $1,500.


No charge is made to your credit card account at this stage. In the unlikely event of damages occurring, we would notify you and charge your credit card for required compensation. Please note, damages are charged at the rate of full replacement of the same item, or a similar item where the exact replacement is not available. Evidence of any damage will be provided where practicable.



In the event that a guest cancels their booking, we are unable to refund their deposit. If a final payment is not provided by the due date, we will contact the guest with a reminder. If the guest does not confirm their booking and make the final payment, then we will assume that the booking has been cancelled and open the property for other bookings. The deposit will be retained.


In consideration of the current COVID-19 pandemic (starting March 2020), we have created an Extenuating Circumstances (EC) policy. Whilst we are not in a position to offer refunds, should travel be restricted due to government regulations or an “Act of God” either of which have demonstrably impacted guests, we will allow guests to transfer their credit to a future booking date.


Our aim is to be reasonable to all parties when applying our EC policy. Please note Dantosa's management is the final arbiter of for determining the final credit amount and transferred booking dates.

Please note discounts and special offers that apply to a booking may not necessarily be transferred to future dates, although we will do our very best to extend them. Dates such as public holidays or peak school holiday periods will not include these discounts or special offers (e.g. Easter, October Labor Day holiday, Christmas and New Year’s Eve periods).
