Absolutely no fireworks or fires are to be used on the property or in the vicinity. There is multiple heat pumps in the house so it will be very comfortable.

**## Cleaning: ## **
While a cleaner comes through when you check out, they are there to do the linen, make the beds, vacuum the house, mop the floors, clean the bathrooms, clean the windows and surfaces around the house and kitchen. The cleaner is not there to do dishes or pots and pans, put out the rubbish or recycle, or deal with human waste such as vomit etc, so please be respectful and leave the property in a tidy manner. If the property is left in a terrible state, a cleaning fee of $60 per hour will be charged.

If you used the BBQ, please make sure its clean before leaving as it is not attended to.

**## Kitchen: ##**

**## Noise: ##**
Please don't play music or talk loudly outside after 11:00pm to respect the other properties near by that may be tenanted by guests at the same time. No parties or gathering of guests from other properties is allowed.

**## Damage: ##**
You will be liable for any and all damage on the property. The cleaner completes a walk through of the property using a 360 degree camera before and after checkout, this ensures we can link any damage to a particular booking.

**## Spa Pool: ##**
The combination code for the latches is 00
Spa pool is available for use and should be hot on arrival. 
We suggest bringing extra towels if you wish to use it as we only provide one towel per person.

Please don't allow people to walk on or lay on the spa cover as this will damage it.
Please do up all the latches after every use as the wind can pickup unexpectedly and blow the cover away and damage it. The cost to replace the spa cover is around $750+, so please ensure your guests are aware of the liability.

To use the spa lifter, open all 6 latches/clips and then simply open it as per this 15 second video clip 

While a professional spa company services the spa twice a week, we ask that you add chemicals after use. Please add a table spoon of chlorine which can be located in the outside box beside the spa or in the dry room. If the spa is a bit murky, there is Spa Shock above the fridge, add a few table spoons.

A camera does cover the spa pool, this is for both safety and security as pools create a liability and are expensive to maintain.


  • We have had instances where guests have damaged the spa cover, and also added bubble bath and Epsom salts causing damage.

  • Do not add anything to the spa pool other than the chemicals as instructed.

  • If anything other than Chlorine or Spa Shock is added to the spa, a cleaning fee of $250 will apply, plus any damages such as filter replacements, pump damage etc.
