They are empowered to do so under the Fire and Emergency Services Act 1990 Part 11 Charges for services.
INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOUR (The No Excessive Noise Policy) – Many of our properties are in residential areas or if in a complex have permanent residents residing. Excess noise, inappropriate language or behaviour that is threatening or unacceptable will not be tolerated. Guests who are behaving inappropriately will be asked to leave the property and no monies will be refunded to the guest.
In addition, we ask that children in your group refrain from playing in hallways or driveways or running around pool areas which could be dangerous for them and disturbing other residents or holidaymakers.
PERSONAL BELONGINGS – We cannot accept responsibility for personal property such as cameras etc. that are left unattended in your holiday accommodation. When visiting beaches and picnic areas, we suggest that you lock your vehicle and make sure that valuables are out of sight. By showing care in these simple steps, you will make sure possible stressful situations do not arise.
It is also the guest’s responsibility to organise postage or a courier to receive their belongings back at their own cost.
REPAIRS & MAINTENANCE – If a guest reports a maintenance issue and a tradesperson or Regency on the Beach representative attends to find the issue is a user error (i.e., using an incorrect key in the door lock, using incorrect TV remote, appliance not plugged in at wall) a call out fee will apply.

We will endeavour to resolve any issues as quickly as possible, however, there may be occasions where an issue cannot be rectified during your stay.
DAMAGES & BREAKAGES – All damages, breakages or losses to the property, furniture and furnishings are to be reported to the agent and paid for by the guest immediately. Should you discover a fault or breakage when you arrive, please advise us within 2 hours or we will consider this the responsibility of the current guest and charge accordingly.
SITUATIONS THAT MAY AFFECT YOUR RESERVATION – At times situations arise over which we have no control which may affect your reservation.
Construction – the Gold Coast is currently experiencing a construction boom and there are a few construction sites located near us. As this is completely out of our control, we are unable to provide any compensation due to construction noise that may take place during your proposed stay, however, we will endeavour to keep you informed of any nearby construction sites as we are made aware of them. If you have any concerns, then please do not hesitate to contact us upon making your reservation.
COVID RULES AND RESTRICTIONS – If your booking is directly affected by COVID-19 when a ‘Federal’ order or a ‘State’ order is in place that prohibits a guest from transit between their state of origin and the resort as a direct impact associated with the COVID-19 pandemic the resort will allow cancellations without penalty if contact is made prior to arrival date.
Any deposits or payments we have received we are allowing to hold or transfer your deposit: You will have the flexibility to transfer your full deposit to any booking you make up to 12 months from your cancellation date.
