Terms and deposits
Booking deposits, payments options, peace and privacy
By placing a booking with SEAVIEW ESCAPES you (the lead guest) and your booking party (guests) agree to the following terms and conditions as set-out. During your stay, you agree to abide by the subsequent conditions as set-out. If you have any questions at all please do contact us before making a booking.
To place a booking with us the lead guest must be at least 25 years of age. The maximum number of staying guests per holiday home is illustrated in the room occupancy details on the website. Where the person making the booking is different to the lead guest taking up the occupation, the person making the booking may be held responsible for cancellation, non-arrival and damages as set-out within. Only the lead guest and the named booking party can use the property and its facilities, any third-party visitors are only allowed access at our express permission.
To secure your booking we ask for deposits of 25% of your total
and £100 for breakages
The 25% booking deposit can be paid immediately at the time of booking using a credit card or PayPal through our website booking system or we will arrange to do this manually. You will then be sent an invoice for the balance which again can be paid online or manually.
Following your booking, you will be asked to let us know who is coming by filling in our "PARTY FORM". We will also ask you to provide a modest £100 breakages deposit which you will get back 3-7 days after your stay if your Holiday Home Escape is in the condition you found it.
All payments can be made securely on our website using all the popular Debit/Credit cards and PAYPAL.
We can also arrange payments by digital BACS bank transfer or cheque. Any charges raised against us by our banks for handling dishonoured cheque's, bank transfers or any other payments, must be reimbursed by the lead guest within seven (7) days of any request to do so.
All guests agree to respect the privacy and peace of all other staying guests, neighbours and the owners at all times. We reserve the right to cancel a booking with immediate effect if guests are not honouring this agreement or causing a disturbance/nuisance to other guests, neighbours or the owners.
We reserve the right to cancel any booking without compensation, refund or reimbursement if the terms of these conditions are breached.

Damages & Lost Property
We reserve the right to charge the lead guest for any damages caused through the course of a booking by any member of the booking party. This includes breakages, spillages, stains, damage to furniture or fixtures and fittings. Any accidental damages should be reported as soon as possible to minimise damage and associated costs. Lost keys incur a replacement charge of £10 per key.
Any lost property, if discovered and found, left behind by guests during a stay will be held for a period of 2 weeks. While we will make our best efforts to reunite lost property with their owners we accept no responsibility in replacing lost items and encourage guests to ensure they have all their belonging before checking-out.
We may offer to post lost items via recorded delivery at the cost of the property owner, otherwise, collection can be arranged.
