Upstairs are Bedrooms 1 and 2 (with built in robes), Bedroom 3, the bathroom (with bath & shower), a separate toilet and a covered balcony.
The fully enclosed rear courtyard provides a quiet space to enjoy the outside and has table & chairs for 6 people and a gas bbq, plus there is an upstairs covered balcony (accessible from Bedrooms 2 & 3). The double garage provides parking space for 2 cars.
The fully appointed kitchen is equipped with cooking utensils, crockery, cutlery, microwave, toaster, kettle, etc. plus a double sink, fridge, dishwasher, electric oven and gas cook top.
There are three wall mounted reverse cycle airconditioners; one in the downstairs Living/Kitchen/Dining room and one each in Bedrooms 1 & 2. There is also one stand-alone heater and one stand-alone fan which can be used where required.

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.
