General Terms & Conditions of Rental

We will make every effort to ensure the property is available as booked. However we reserve the right to make alterations to bookings due to unforeseen circumstances.

You acknowledge that due to the location of the property, being in a remote water-access only area surrounded by national park, interruptions to utilities such as water or power may occur.

Check-out time at the latest is by 10am unless a later check out time has been agreed in writing prior to commencement of the stay.

Pets are not allowed unless specific arrangements have been made in writing prior to commencement of stay. Pets are permitted on an outdoor only basis where approved by management, and a pet bond may also apply.

Swimming from the property’s frontage and use of the runabout boat, kayaks, and fishing equipment provided is at your risk, and you are liable for any damages caused during operation.

Any variations to these terms and conditions herein must be requested in writing and agreed to before the commencement of the rental period at Calabash Bay Lodge.

The booking coordinator must educate all guests staying at Calabash Bay Lodge as to these terms and conditions of rental, and to uphold and enforce these terms and conditions at all times during the rental period.


Under no circumstances are more than 8 guests allowed on the premises at any one time.

Under no circumstances are any additional guests beyond the number confirmed at time of booking permitted on the property, unless subsequently agreed in writing prior to commencement of the stay.

This will be strictly enforced. Contravening this condition may result in immediate termination of the rental and/or loss of bond.


Subject to request in writing and approval by management, in certain circumstances we may agree for day visitors to visit guests staying at the property. No more than 10 persons may be on the property at any one time. The same terms and conditions apply to day visitors as guests staying overnight at the property.

Where we agree prior to the commencement of your stay that visitors may visit you at the property during your rental period, you acknowledge that additional fees may be payable via your security bond to cover any extra incidental costs including but not limited to extra cleaning, garbage removal and additional wear and tear.


Calabash Bay Lodge accepts children without restriction and is family friendly. Two additional infants (up to 12 months of age) can be accommodated on the property in addition to the normal maximum of 8 guests. One cot and highchair are available at the property for your use.


Parties and Functions are strictly prohibited at all times. Use contrary to this may result in immediate termination of the rental, loss of security bond, and you will forfeit any claim to refund of monies for rental paid prior to commencement.


We do not take responsibility for any theft or loss that may occur during your stay.


We provide use of a runabout boat as part of our rates, which seats up to 4 persons maximum (this is the largest possible boat size we can offer to unlicensed drivers). As part of our check-in procedure, you’ll receive a briefing on safe operation. At the end of the briefing you will be given a boat use agreement, where you will acknowledge receipt of the safety briefing and that use of the boat is at your own risk. Lifejackets, including for children, mandatory safety equipment, and a full tank of fuel is provided.

NB The boat cannot be driven after dusk and before dawn, so that needs to be taken into consideration if you have any late arriving guests you may like to collect yourself on the day of arrival. In that scenario, an additional boat transfer will need to be booked and paid for in advance of your stay.
