Your Reservation is a Contract for Short Term Rental
When you make a reservation at Boathouse Resort, you are entering into a short term rental contract to occupy a residential apartment. The name Boathouse Resort is a brand only, and each apartment is individually owned. Boathouse Resort is NOT a hotel, motel or a singular serviced aparment business. Boathouse Resort is a marketing brand that aggregates the individual owners apartments and are managed by the agent to ensure best availability for guests and maximises occupancy. The contract you enter into is managed by a licensed real estate agent. Your deposits and payments are paid into an agents’ trust account which is governed by the Office of Fair Trading.
Short Term Rental is governed by a set of regulations that have been legislated by the state government of NSW. These regulations are often referred to as the “AirBnB laws”. This is because many residents have been inconvenienced by a constant stream of paying guests behaving poorly or creating difficulties for permanent residents. You as a guest can be reported to the commissioner, you can also report a landlord, the property you have rented and others who have negatively affected you in a STRA situation.

You will also find and you should familiarise yourself with the emergency exit map at the entrance and exit to the apartment.
