Tidbits about our Units and Policies

The Westview Beach Villas

Everything you need to know about our rentals 

All villas and cottages are equipped with a full kitchen with fridge, stove, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and all your cooking and eating utensils, 3 piece bathroom and a deck with a picnic table and propane BBQ. Only a few cottages have a fold-out couch in the living room. The entire site offers free WiFi for guests to use during their stay with us. 

​Dogs:

We listened to your feedback, and we do love dogs, we promise. So we have reduced our pet fee this year to a $100.00 charge per week, per dog, for your well-mannered and human-friendly pooch. Kindly let us know if you intend to bring your furry family member. Please be a responsible owner, and courteous guest and neighbour, and clean up after your pup at all times. If your furry loved one gets lonely and barky while you're enjoying the beach, please do not bring them with you to The Westview. No one enjoys hearing a pet in distress, and excessive barking dogs will not be tolerated. Any dog (and their respective humans) causing a disturbance may be asked to leave the property promptly. Refunds will not be issued for problematic pets. Any damage caused by a pet is their owners' responsibility and will be charged to repair or replace any damaged item/s. Dogs are not allowed on the beach as per local bylaws but do pull us aside during your stay, and we will be happy to let you know where Fido can enjoy a swim as well. Our goal is always to ensure everyone has a fantastic time at the beach, and that includes our furry friends.


Check-in & Out Times:
Check-in time is 3 pm. Those wishing to arrive early are welcome to enjoy the beach until their cottage is ready. If you are arriving after 6:00 pm, you must notify us before your check-in date. Checkout time is 10 am. We ask that everyone be courteous and leave by this time to ensure that the next guests can enjoy their rental promptly at check-in time.


What to Bring:
We will be emailing you a few weeks before arrival with all the details; however, in a nutshell, guests must supply: bedding, pillows, towels, blankets, fans, beach gear and campfire gear, including chairs.
We provide BBQs and propane along with toilet paper. Firewood is typically available for purchase at the Trading Post or many other local spots. The lake and beach provide all the relaxation and fun!


Guest Responsibilities upon Checkout:
Before checkout, you are required to leave the cottage in the same clean condition that you found it. Dishes should be clean and put away, and any perishable foods removed from the fridge and freezer. Garbage should be bagged and taken to the garbage bins. Please double-check the cottage for personal items.


Reservations:

We kick it old school and manually make your reservation in our system. These days, it's best to email us with your inquiries as we herd our cat (aka 6-year-old daughter) in the remote learning jungle. You can email us at this address: info@thewestview.ca, or fill in the form on the 'Contact' page. 


Payments:

To confirm your reservation with us, the deposit fee (50% of the rental price) will be due upon booking. The remaining balance of your intended stay is due at the time of check-in or before your arrival date. If you prefer to work out a payment plan, we're happy to accommodate that structure; get in touch with us to coordinate this.

Payment methods:
All rates are subject to HST. We accept e-transfers, cheques or credit card payments; however, CC payments will incur a 3.75% service fee. We can also accept cash or Interac payments upon checking in to pay the remainder of your rental fee at The Westview Beach Villas. An NSF fee of $50 will be charged for any returned cheques.


Cancellations:
​We get it, things change, and life happens. Should you wish to cancel your 2021 reservation, kindly let us know as soon as possible. COVID measures aside, refunds will only be issued if you do so 14 days before your arrival. Your reservation balance will be mailed or transferred back to you. Should you cancel your reservation within 14 days of your arrival, your deposit will be forfeited, and your reservation will be cancelled as requested.​
