Coastguards View is part of the original terraced Coastguard Cottages – our immediate neighbours are permanent residents – please respect their privacy, ensure you maintain good neighbour relations, avoid anti-social behaviour and observe the Noise Act 1996 stating that noise should be reduced to absolute minimum between 11.00pm and 7.00am. Should we receive either direct report from our neighbours or from our Housekeeper that you are causing a nuisance you will receive notice to cease anti-social behaviour immediately. Failure to do so will be considered a serious breach of these T&C afterwhich we reserve the right to terminate your holiday with immediate effect and without refund of your main holiday rental payment. Our Housekeeper, together with police assistance if necessary, will require you to vacate the property within 2 hours – in these circumstances clauses 6-9 below continue to apply and return of your deposit will still depend on you leaving the property in a satisfactory condition.
  6. A refundable (*see points 16-18), breakages, excess cleaning & excess electricity deposit of £200 (plus £100 dog deposit) is payable when the booking is made. This will be repaid by cheque within 21 days of the end of your rental period, minus any costs for breakages, repairs, extra cleaning or excess electricity – your rental includes a £30/week electricity fair usage allowance which is sufficient to meet your typical hot water, cooking and heating requirements via the electric wall fires (but excluding the storage heaters).
  7. 7.1 Infectious Disease – During an infectious outbreak we accept no responsibility regarding the transmission of infectious disease. We require visitors to keep the cottage as clean as possible during your stay, follow all government personal/hand/face hygiene guidelines and whilst out and about maintain whatever social distancing measures are current at the time of your visit. Upon your holiday departure, using disinfectant provided, please wipe down all door handles, light switches, bannister rails, kitchen tops, units, dining table top, bathroom sink, shower enclosure and tray to minimise any risks to our housekeeper before she arrives to prepare cottage for next visitors and ensure safety of all concerned.
    7.2 If at any point during your stay you or any of your party start to show symptoms associated with any infectious disease you are required to notify us by phone and email ASAP, amend travel arrangements to vacate cottage ASAP (no pro-rata refund) in order to self-isolate back home or failing that then self-isolate within the cottage until your designated departure time and, having performed all disinfectant / cleaning procedures as detailed in points 7-9, you must vacate the property no later than time stipulated at point 19.
    7.3 If for any reason a government enforced lockdown prevents you from vacating the property on your departure date then you will be liable for the additional full weekly rental cost for the following week(s) to cover your extra time in the property. This extra rental cost will be payable immediately in full via BACS transfer on or before your original departure date. If government announcement during your holiday of forthcoming lockdown causes you to have to vacate cottage earlier than your departure date there is no pro-rata refund.
    7.4 In the event self-isolating / quarantine legislation prevents your departure then you will be liable for the additional full weekly rental cost of the following week(s) to cover your extra time in the cottage. Should we have visitors arriving who will be prevented from using the cottage due to your extended occupation your extra rental payment will be plus the deposit fee again in order to reimburse them their full rental plus their deposit refund. These extra costs will be payable immediately in full via BACS transfer on or before your original departure date.
    7.5 In the event you are prevented from accessing Coastguards View on your arrival date due to previous visitors being quarantined in the property we will refund your rental payment by cheque within 7 days in full / pro-rata if the cottage becomes available during the same week. We will not be liable for any additional costs such as travel nor alternative accommodation that is more expensive than rental already paid and although we will obviously, in the circumstances, do our best to help we will not take responsibility for finding you alternative accommodation.
  8. The majority of our visitors treat our cottage with respect making the effort to leave the cottage as clean and tidy as possible on departure which we really appreciate. However, due to recent high number of visitors leaving the cottage in an “unsatisfactory state” on departure, return of the deposit now depends upon an email report from our housekeeper. If the report is that cottage was clean, tidy and disinfected, then the full deposit will be returned (minus any breakages/excess electricity charges if applicable – see point 6).
  9. In addition to essential departure disinfecting at point 7, as outlined in point 8, we require that you leave the cottage as clean and tidy as possible, to help the changeover to run smoothly in the limited time available– an “unsatisfactory state” includes things like; dirty pots, pans, plates etc left around, washing up left out on drainer, food spillages not wiped up from fridge, cooker, grill, microwave, dining table and floors, sink left full of dirty/greasy water, foil lining from grill pan not throw in bin, rubbish left in house rather than securely bagged in outside wheelie bin, sandy floors and surfaces not swept out, soiled toilet left unflushed (yes it happens), kitchen / bathroom left dirty, dirty laundry left on beds or on floors rather than in laundry bags provided. This is not an exhaustive list – it’s more indicative of things considered an “unsatisfactory state”. If the cottage is left in an unsatisfactory state / not cleaned on departure, we will email you a copy of the report together with any relevant photos resulting in the loss of your deposit and no further correspondence will be entered into. Points 7-9 – “vacate cottage” is the time you have to leave the cottage by having already tidied and disinfected prior to your departure – failure to do so will result in loss of £200 deposit. We apologise to those that consider these terms unreasonable but, under the circumstances, everyone has to take responsibility for maintaining adequate levels of hygiene – without your co-operation we will not be able to let the cottage. Please leave the cottage as you’d expect to find it.
  10. We ask you to take meter readings both on arrival and departure – you are more than welcome to use the storage heaters (although they’re only really required during the winter months) however extra electricity charges are likely to apply and will be deducted from your deposit refund as outlined in point 6.
  11. Any breakages or damage caused, in excess of the £200 breakages deposit, will be charged for and must be paid in full within 14 days of the end of your rental or as soon as appropriate repair / replacement estimates have been sourced accordingly. You will also be liable for any consequential losses we incur i.e. if as a direct result of your actions we have to cancel visitors already booked or withdraw cottage availability then you will be liable for the cost to fully reimburse us for any loss of rental income, visitor deposit and rental refunds together with any associated costs incurred e.g. listing agency cancellation fees etc.
  12. The preferred method of payment is Bank Transfer direct to our account.
  13. The rental payment is due in full 12 weeks before your holiday. At this stage you will have paid the full rental amount plus the deposit (plus dog deposit if applicable).
  14. If your booking is made less than 12 weeks before your holiday date then the rental payment plus the refundable deposit amount (plus dog deposit if applicable) are both payable in full at the time of booking.
  15. For “Late Availability” bookings, payment must be received in full and cleared prior to the start of your actual rental otherwise entry to the cottage will not be possible.
  16. Cancellation made before the 12 week rental payment due date will incur the loss of the £200 deposit paid at the time of booking.
  17. Cancellations made less than 12 weeks before your holiday date and after the deposit and the full rental payment has been paid will forfeit the £200 deposit. In addition, if you cancel less than 12 weeks before your holiday date any refund of the main balance will be at our discretion, dependent solely on whether we are able to re-rent the house for that same period – we will of course do our best to do so and will advertise the week(s) as late availability on our website and, if available, other websites where we have a relevant listing as well.
  18. We strongly recommend that you take out comprehensive holiday insurance to cover all eventualities including cancellations – we do not carry insurance on your behalf and do not issue refunds of deposit / rental balance as outlined in points 16 and 17 above for any reason including government interventions / travel restrictions etc to restrict spread of disease for example. In the event you wish to transfer your booking to the following year due to government travel restrictions, having already paid your deposit / and final balance, this will incur an admin fee of £200 i.e. the deposit fee already paid will no longer be refunded after your holiday the following year.
  19. Exit and entry times are fixed to allow enough cleaning time between lets so the cottage can be presented to the next party as they would expect to find it. On Friday changeovers therefore:
    On date of arrival         – Entry to the cottage after 5.00pm. (Please do not arrive early to ensure our Housekeeper has finished and vacated before you arrive)
    On date of departure  – Please vacate cottage by 9.00am. (Ensure you clean beforehand – see points 7-9, and depart on time to ensure the cottage is vacant before our Housekeeper arrives)
  20. All information provided both on this website and elsewhere, both prior to and after a booking is made, is given in good faith, and we will, as far as we’re reasonably able to, make sure it is as accurate as possible. However we shall not be liable for any damage or loss resulting from information given either verbally or in writing.
  21. We will not accept any liability or responsibility during your stay at Coastguards View for any accident or injury to you, your family or friends, or loss or damage to personal property, howsoever caused. We accept no liability or responsibility for any damage caused to your vehicles. You will be liable for all repair costs for any damage caused to any surrounding car park walls – please advise us of any damage you cause. We also advise visitors to take care on the walk between the harbour and the cottage which is steep and/or cobbled in places.
  22. Please be advised that it is an old cottage and as such the stairs are fairly steep as are the steps to the upper garden area – please supervise young children accordingly. The upper garden is available for visitor use but used entirely at visitors own risk.
  23. In the unlikely event that Coastguards View, Mevagissey becomes uninhabitable for the whole duration of your rental period / at any point during your rental period due to storm damage, flood, fire or other unforeseen causes beyond our control, e.g. previous visitor damage, see point 11, our responsibility and financial liability shall be limited to the return of the rental money received / pro-rata thereof – however, this does not include rental refunds in the event delay to your journey due to adverse weather conditions nor government interventions / travel restrictions etc to restrict spread of disease for example as outlined at point 18 – please ensure adequate holiday insurance is taken out.
  24. The cottage is cleaned and maintained to a high standard however we cannot legislate for every eventuality / visitor activity outside of our control. Visitor activity such as cooking for example, which may lead to strong but temporary after-smells, would not render the cottage uninhabitable for the next visitor and no refund/pro-rata refund will be made.
  25. We reserve the right to amend these conditions at any time and without notice. E&OE.
  26. The personal information collected on the Booking Form is to allow us to have a suitable record of who is staying at Coastguards View. We may also use it to contact you in the future to make you aware of further availability of the cottage – please advise us if you do not wish to be contacted. We will not share or sell this information to any third party.
  27. Terms as of 1st July 2020 – most up to date terms appear on this website which in turn supersede all other holiday listing websites and Booking Forms.
