Note - for Special Events e.g. for supercars, major festivals or concert events, etc, I will accept NO refunds for cancellations up to 2 MONTHS in advance. For long term stays (1 MONTH or more bookings) I will require 2 WEEKS notice for a full refund. This is over and above my usual 5 day notice period as specified in the MODERATE cancellation policy I use. This is due to problems rebooking guests into these high demand time slots.
