Reservation Policy

A minimum stay of three nights is required.  All reservations require a valid credit card or cash deposit of 25% of the total stay, refundable (less $50.00 processing fee) if cancelled 30 days prior to arrival date.

Cancellation Policy

Sandpiper Cottages is a small family-run business which depends upon full occupancy during our very brief summer season. Our peak season covers only 9 weeks. A cancelled and unreserved one week stay is a serious matter for us. Therefore, all bookings are subject to an industry standard cancellation policy, outlined below, which must be strictly enforced. We will always make every effort to assist our guests, but strongly advise vacationers with longer bookings to arrange readily available travel insurance in case you must cancel your booking or shorten your stay outside the applicable time frames.

Every cancellation or shortened stay is subject to a $50.00 administration fee. To receive a full refund of your deposit, less administration fee, you must provide at least 30 days notice of cancellation prior to your scheduled arrival date. Notice of cancellation provided less than 30 days prior to scheduled arrival, but more than 14 days, will result in loss of deposit only, and no further responsibility for accommodations booked. If, however, notice of cancellation is received less than 14 days prior to scheduled arrival, you are responsible for the cost of the entire stay unless it can be re-reserved in full. We will make every effort to assist in the unfortunate event you must cancel on less than 14 days notice, but again strongly suggest you secure inexpensive travel insurance to protect against this eventuality.

Cavendish Beach Music Festival Policy
  • 4 night minimum stay required
  • A non-refundable deposit of $250 is required to confirm your reservation and is valid from time of booking.  Once the deposit has been processed, should you decide to cancel, if we can re-rent your accommodations, your deposit will be credited. (less a $50 processing fee)
  • A $250 noise & damage authorization will be required at check in.  No parties or large groups allowed, quiet time is 11:00 pm, zero tolerance for excessive noise or disturbance.
Pet Policy

We are a pet friendly establishment. For the benefit of all of our guests, pets must be on a leash. Please also make it a practice to take your pet with you when you leave for the day. Pets are an additional $20 per night, per pet. (Service Animals no charge)


Check-in time is 4:00 pm and every effort is made to have all of the cottages and suites ready on time. If you plan to arrive earlier, you are more than welcome to leave your luggage and enjoy our property or head off to the beach while your unit is being prepared for you.

Accounts must be settled at the time of check-in. We accept cash, valid VISA and MC. Sorry, we do not accept cheques.

Late Arrivals

Please inform us if you will be arriving late. We are a family owned and operated business and our front desk is closed after 8:00 pm.


Check-out time is 11:00 am. Although cottages and suites must be vacated, our guests are welcome to stay and use our facilities on departure day.

We appreciate your consideration of our requirements, and ask that you call us toll free or email if you require any further information or clarification.
