Fairways Cottages will take reservation requests one year out from the date of the request, but provides first right of refusal for those guests with a history of repeat business in a particular unit during a particular week.  During the first 3 – 31 days in January of the booking year we will reconfirm the reservation request with the party requesting an advance deposit of $200/$100 per unit to confirm the reservation.

For all weeks (except for the CBMF week)  Fairways Cottages requires a $200 advance deposit per cottage at the time of booking for reservations 7 days or longer and $100 advance deposit for bookings less than 7 days. For all bookings (other than the CBMF week of July 3 – July 9, 2018) should you cancel your reservation, as long as request is received and confirmed more than 21 days prior to your arrival date, your advance deposit is refunded minus a $10 administration fee. If you cancel, depart early or request a shorter stay less than 21 days prior to your originally reserved arrival date, there is no refund to your confirmed rate and dates. We look forward to hearing from you.

Fairways Cottages has a maximum per unit policy. All units are priced for up to 4 people in the one and two bedroom units and up to 6 people for the three bedroom units. There is a charge of $10 per person per night over the allotted advertised pricing. Maximum allowable occupancy in a one bedroom is 4 people. Maximum allowable occupancy in a 2-bedroom is 6 people, other than #13 which is a maximum of 4 people.

For the week of the Cavendish Beach Music Festival (CBMF), we require a $500 non-refundable advance deposit at the time of final confirmation of booking which will be applied to your final payment upon check-in.  As per this policy, there will be no nightly refunds for early departures of less than a minimum stay of 5 nights during the festival week or for last minute cancellations. Should a guest cancel a confirmed reservation, they can not reassign their cottage to another party. Only guests registered on the property during the festival weekend will be permitted access. During the festival extra visitors are not permitted. At Fairways, we sincerely pride ourselves on guaranteeing our customers a superior vacation experience.  This policy is applied to guarantee this experience for all of our guests.
