Bathed in sunshine, with views over our sparkling pool and tropical garden, it’s perfect for unwinding!

NB POOL USE NOT INCLUDED. See notes on guest access below.

The following are NOT included in the rental but for a small ADDITIONAL COST, we are happy to negotiate hours of use (dependent on the family's use) for the following during your stay:

(A) POOL (limited season - end/Nov early/Dec - April weather dependent).
During this COVID period we need to apply extra restrictions and attention to the use of any shared areas to ensure they are kept safe and hygienic for everyone. Therefore, pool use will attract an extra fee at this time.

If we, the owners, are not staying on the property during your stay. We can offer exclusive, unrestricted use of the pool and poolside areas for an extra $20/day - excluding access to soft furnishings.
POOL PARTIES ARE STRICTLY FORBIDDEN and pool/poolside use by visitors (non-paying guests) is not permitted.

When we are on-site, we can arrange 'limited' access to the pool - i.e. when we are not using it. This is done on a case by case basis and on the agreement that we share our movements to ensure you can comfortably enjoy the pool area at certain times when we are not. This incurs a $5/day surcharge.

On the occasions when we are not on site, we have a local support person to help in any way and check-in on you if need be.

(B) LAUNDRY ROOM (washer, dryer, laundry tub)

We can offer you access to the washing machine at $5/wash (including soap/stain remover). This is on request.

An extra fee will be applied at the end of the booking and requested via PayPal prior to checkout.

Guest access

Other things to note
SMOKING
* Please note that our home is a no-smoking area so please DO NOT SMOKE either inside or outside the studio. It is strictly forbidden.

MAXIMUM NUMBER OF GUESTS
*The studio accommodates 2 people max. Unfortunately, we cannot accept any additional guests.

CONSIDERING BRINGING CHILDREN AND INFANTS?
* If you wish to book with a child or infant, please note that we have a pool in the garden, which although surrounded by a compliant pool fence, we ask you to ensure you supervise your children in the garden at all times.

* As above, we also have small dogs and ask you to ensure your children are supervised by an adult at any time when interacting with the dogs. These dogs, although wonderfully friendly, could behave unpredictably if they feel they are threatened, or hurt by mis-handling.

OUR DOGS
*We have two sausage dogs, named 'Buddy' and 'Luna'. Buddy will most definitely bark loudly when you first arrive.

Luna is still a puppy, so you may see her around less often. Buddy is 6yrs old and is very friendly, sociable and loving once he has told you who is boss! He will not come into your studio unless you want him to. We would hate for you to not enjoy your stay with us, so please make sure that you are happy with Buddy sharing the garden with you and be sure to always close the side gate so he does not go on walkabout!

* We ask you to please resist feeding the dogs anything as their tummies are sensitive and they follow a strict diet. They will beg you with their loving eyes but don't be fooled!

NO VISITING PETS ALLOWED
*Although we have dogs on our property and love them, we do not unfortunately accept other pets to stay.

NO AIR-CONDITIONING
*We have fans in the studio but in the Summer, there are times when it can get hot. Guests will usually leave their doors open day and night to enjoy the breezes from the ocean but please be aware of this.

I am originally from London, with Italian/ Scottish/Lithuanian parents. Being married to an Aussie gave me the wonderful opportunity to live and work in this beautiful country and this amazing city of Sydney which I now proudly call home. I can speak Italian and can muddle my way through some French... and am always really keen to practice! I love hanging out with my family and our sausage dog Buddy. I've always enjoyed exploring new countries and cultures, travel and food, entertaining and singing and swimming in our pristine waters whilst looking for marine life! Our Guest House is a place we feel reflects the kind of place we like to stay in ourselves when travelling. A place that is comfortable but with a touch of luxury, is clean and quiet. A great place to relax, kick back and put your head down after a busy day soaking up the local sights, entertainment and culture. I like to live life to the full - "To live every moment, laugh every day and love beyond words" and to learn something new everyday... I look forward to meeting you at our Guest House in the near future.
