International transfers or credit card payments may result in a surcharge from your bank.

What is a Bond? And how do I pay it?

The bond is a security deposit registered with the appropriate state-based authority and covers any damage you may cause to the room. Don’t worry, this excludes normal wear and tear. You will receive an email 10 days before your contract start date asking you to pay a security deposit through the Resident Portal.

It is refundable at the end of your stay with us if there are no damages, your room is left clean and there is no outstanding rent. You will receive an email when your bond is ready to be returned. Release of your bond from the state-based authority will either be transferred into an Australian bank account of your choice which is the preferred method, or you can arrange for a cheque to be sent to you.

Would you like an express check-in? If you complete your pre-arrival process before arrival your check-in will only take 10 minutes. If you haven’t completed your pre-arrival process, your check-in could take up to 30 minutes.

Once logged in to the portal, you will be able to review and sign your contract prior to arriving at Scape. Make sure to give yourself enough time to read the contract carefully before signing. Once completed, we’ll send you a copy of the final signed contract via email for your records.

Do I need to bring my own bedspread, quilt and pillow?

Yes. However, to make life easier, these items may be purchased on our website when booking your room, or via our Resident Portal, and can be ready for you on check-in.
