Failure to pay the security deposit in advance will result in the cancellation of the booking and forfeit of all monies. The deposit will be refunded within 7 days of departure once the on-site supervisor is satisfied that the terms & conditions of rental have been complied with. Any repairs to the property due to negligence on behalf of the client will be deducted from the security deposit and where this is insufficient there will be additional charges. Excessive damage to the property will be the responsibility of the person who made the booking. The supervisor or any officer of West Coast Holidays may at all reasonable times visit the home during the stay or on departure.

4. CLEANING & BED LINEN
Final cleaning is included in the rental charge, but failure to leave the accommodation in a clean and tidy condition will result in a charge of €80 being levied.

Notwithstanding the aforesaid, the sole risk in respect of such belongings shall at all times remain with the clients.
9. ACCOMMODATION CAPACITY
For insurance reasons, the total number of clients staying in each holiday home must not exceed the maximum capacity. As the capacity in each holiday home may vary it is important that you check in advance that you do not exceed the limit which applies to the holiday home you have booked. The number of persons advertised as being the sleeping capacity for the property must not be exceeded under any circumstances and clients will be asked to leave if this is exceeded.
Pets are permitted in selected properties for a fee. Please call for approval prior to booking.
West Coast Holidays, its employees or agents are not responsible for any loss of valuables or property left in the home or on site during the stay or on departure. Standard insurances are in place within the holiday complex, but these insurances do not cover the loss or damage of any personal belongings taken into the houses by holidaymakers. Should your own household policy or indeed holiday insurance not cover these items please make other arrangements. West Coast Holidays acts as an agent and as such does not own any of the properties it rents out. Therefore, any claims for personal injury or accident must be made directly to the Owner of the property.
West Coast Holiday Villages Ltd acts as a disclosed intermediary agent of the property owner. The invoice, if requested, relating to each supply will be issued by the property owner (principal) to the customer.
If as a consequence of “Force Majeure”, West Coast Holiday Homes is forced to curtail, alter or cancel a holiday, we will allow the client to carry forward amounts paid for Accommodation ( exc any amounts paid for Booking Fees) to another holiday taken within 12 months of your booked holiday. However the Client shall not be at liberty to maintain a claim for compensation or otherwise arising as a consequence of the said curtailment, alteration or cancellation of the holiday. In these terms and conditions the term Force Majeure shall mean Acts of God, natural disasters, adverse weather conditions, fire, epidemics, health risks, destruction or damage to holiday accommodation, water or electricity supply issues, riots, acts of civil war, civil commotion, requisition of property, insolvency or default of any provider of the accommodation, delays due to construction, or any other reason or event which West Coast Holiday Homes acting as Agents even with all due care, could not foresee or forestall.
