terms and conditions




The tariff is inclusive of Fast WiFi, linen and electricity and hot water.  Maximum occupancy is six people. 


Booking, Payment and Cancellation

We will hold a provisional booking for 7 days.  To confirm the dates, we require a completed booking form and a non-refundable deposit of 25% of the total rental cost. 

The remaining balance is payable 4 weeks before your travel date. 

Payment either

BACS:  sort code 09-01-28 account number 81891002 with your name as the reference

In the event of cancellation or delay, 65% of the total cost of the accommodation is non-refundable unless we are able to re-let the apartment.  If the booking is cancelled prior to the final balance becoming due, the deposit will be retained and the balance will still be required.  If we are successful in letting the whole period booked, we will refund all monies paid.  Non-payment of the balance by the due date, will be construed as cancellation by you.  We regret we cannot make allowances for delay or no-show due to transport disruptions.  We strongly advise you to take out holiday insurance.

In the event of circumstances beyond our reasonable control, we reserve the right to cancel your booking at any time.  In the unlikely event of this happening, we will refund all money received by us for your booking.  Unfortunately we will not be liable for any other loss incurred by you as a result of the cancellation. 

The property may only be occupied by the agreed number of guests at the time of booking.  If you wish to amend the number of guests in your party, this must be agreed in advance of your stay. 

Bookings are from Wednesday for full weeks, but we would be happy to discuss shorter stays or different arrival dates.

A copy of our access statement is available on our website or by request.

Serica can accommodate a small/medium dog and we would ask that you agree it with us when booking.  We can provide a dog bed, bowl and a dog towel to use when they return wet or muddy.  We do ask that dogs are not left unattended in the apartment at any time and they are not allowed in the bedrooms.  We charge £80 per dog to cover the extra cleaning.  Dogs can travel to the island either on the Scillonian or Skybus who have a dog box on the plane.

If damage caused, results in the property being unfit for occupation to subsequent guests, you shall be liable for the loss of rental income and other related losses.
