The outdoor shower provides convenience for a wash down after swimming and there is parking for 4 cars (and/or some boats) in the driveway plus more available on the street outside.
Please note, the temperature of the pool water, as well as the pool heating capacity, can be affected by the ambient (outside) temperature. If you have any queries about what this may mean for your stay, please do not hesitate to contact us.

It is common in the region for some linen to be provided for bookings, and some linen to be available as an optional extra. By default, a booking at this home does not include optional linen (top & bottom sheets, bath towels and pillowcases). What is included are doonas (quilts) with covers, pillows without covers, tea towels, hand towels and bathmats. If you would like the optional linen included in your booking, please let us know, including which beds you would like it provided for. The additional cost would be a one-off charge of $30 per bed (some sites add a service fee to these costs) - and we prefer 7 days' notice prior to your arrival to get that arranged.
Please note that during the peak summer period and other peak times, check in times are set as 3pm (unless by prior arrangement). Please also note that if you avail of the optional linen hire over these times, it may involve linen being left out but beds not being made up.
