I am always available if you need anything, but I will not be dropping in during your holiday as I appreciate that people need their privacy.
Другие важные подробности
The drive is approximately 15 minutes outside Apollo Bay, it is on a narrow road and some if it is not surfaced, so just be prepared to take your time and it is probably better to try and drive during daylight hours as then you will get to see the Koalas, kangaroos and rabbits.
Please leave the house as you found it. Wash dishes and put them away, sweep the floor, clean down the surfaces. Dogs are allowed, but at a cost of $30 per booking. Also, you are allowed to smoke, BUT only outside the property. Any extra persons ( or children over 2 years) invited after the booking is made, must pay an extra $35 per person per night.

I am an Irish lady living in Paradise aka Apollo Bay. I married a lovely Australian man 8 years ago and we now live in the Bay with our two young boys. I love travel, meeting new people, movies, books, food, art and nature and especially the ocean.
