Arrival check-in on the Island is from 2:00pm and check-out is by 11:00am on the departure day. If this does not suit your arrangements, we will endeavor to meet your requirements but they will be subject to other bookings or commitments, maintenance, staffing availability or factors beyond our control.
Reservations will be converted to bookings upon the client paying a deposit of 30% of the accommodation charge for bookings made at least 90 days prior to the arrival date. Deposit must be received within 7 days after notification of the reservation or the date 90 days prior to the departure date, whichever occurs first. The balance of the accommodation charge must be paid no later than 60 days prior to the arrival date. A reservation will lapse if the client does not pay the deposit by the due date for the relevant payment.
A binding contract will be formed when Makepeace Island confirms the booking, which it will do on receipt of the deposit. Makepeace Island reserves the right to withdraw, change, cancel or reallocate the accommodation and the arrival date at its discretion until the booking is confirmed. Clients must submit requests for variations in writing to Makepeace Island (email or fax).
