Do I need to show ID when collecting keys?

Yes, the person collecting keys will be required to show photo identification and produce a valid credit card as a security deposit before keys are issued. If a valid credit card is not available then a cash security deposit may be required.

What is required when checking in?

When collecting keys, a Guest Registration Form must completed and a security deposit taken before keys are issued. The guest registration form can be completed in advance to save time, or at check-in. You must also provide a valid credit card and driver’s license which will be sighted by a consultant for customer validation.

Please Note: Should you not have a valid credit card, then a cash security deposit is required. Cash deposits will vary depending on the property, with the minimum amount of $400.

What happens if I break something?

Accidents happen sometimes. It is best to let us know if this does occur. You are more likely to incur a charge for breakages or damages if we do not know about it. Upon your departure, an inspection will alert us to any damage or missing items. As per the guest registration form you have signed, such incidents are charged to the guest accordingly.

Why is the total price different to the "from" price?

Each property is displayed from the winter off season weekly tariff. Seasonal tariffs apply.

A clean fee and booking fee will be added to the tariff at the end of your booking showing the exact price for the requested dates.

NOTE: The Amarna Resort, Shoal Bay Beachclub Apartments and The Pines at Anna Bay offer overnight accommodation and are therefore displayed with a daily rate. Some properties may include cleaning fees in the tariff price and some are displayed separately.

Can I bring the family pet?

Most properties will not allow pets anywhere at the property. Guests wanting to bring their pet should select pet friendly at the time of their search, which will shortlist the properties available. There is a fee of $50 per pet per week, or part thereof, in Winning Holidays Pet Friendly Accommodation

Guests who bring pets to properties that do not allow for them could face immediate eviction without refund at the discretion of management.

  3. Nelson Bay Boarding Kennels – Gan Gan Road, One Mile – 02 4982 1182
Why is the property I booked for sale?

All holiday homes are individually and privately owned. Some properties at times will be for sale. In most cases when a sale occurs, the purchaser will continue to holiday let and honour bookings currently in the system, therefore most guests will not be disrupted.

On occasion when a sale occurs, the purchaser may ask for the property to be vacant at the time of settlement. In this situation, Winning Holidays would arrange alternate accommodation for you in a similar property, subject to availability.

Guests will receive notification the moment Winning Holidays are notified giving guests the option to:

  1. transfer to alternate accommodation, or
  2. request a full refund.
Can I book a property for a party or "schoolies"?

No, you cannot have a party. Winning Holidays adhere to the Holiday Code of Conduct respecting the local residents of the area. Our policy requires a maximum of adults in a particular dwelling to help reduce noise complaints, excess cars and disruption to the neighbouring properties. If a property accommodates more than eight people then the remaining guest numbers must be for children.

Any guest found to be hosting a party of any kind or over-crowding the property will be immediately evicted without refund.

Any booking found to be a "schoolies" booking will be be immediately cancelled and evicted without a refund, whether any other terms and conditions are breached or not.

Is my property air-conditioned?

Not all properties offer air conditioning. If air conditioning is important to your stay then please select air conditioning as a requirement when searching on the website.

What do I do if I have an After Hours emergency?

If the matter is life threatening, Dial 000.

The after-hours phone service is for emergencies only, for example total power failure, total water failure, lock-out or natural disaster damage. Please contact our office number on 4984 0100 and a message will be forwarded to the emergency services.

NOTE: If you lock yourself out you will be required to pay for a locksmith service call. This can be expensive!


Do I need to put out the garbage?

Yes. Collection days will be displayed in the Winning Holidays Compendium provided. Guests are responsible to place the red and yellow bins to the curb on collection day if this occurs during your stay. Bin collection will pertain to private homes or duplexes only, whereas unit blocks will have a strata set-up to take the bins out for you. The best indication is to check the street / neighbours who have put out their bins as you would at home.

Why does the TV have poor or no reception?

Reception can be affected from time to time due to the weather or distance from the telecommunications tower. Problems we saw in the old days have been significantly improved since the introduction of the digital signal.

Can I purchase extra cleaning?

If you would like to order mid-stay cleaning please contact Winning Holidays; Mon-Fri 9am to 5pm and Sat 9am to 4pm on (02) 4984 0100 to arrange a quote.
