Общение с гостями
Dear guests, I'd like to make your visit as enjoyable as possible. As I'm generally not available in person, self check in/check out makes things very convenient especially if you plan to check-in late or check-out early in the morning.
If you want to sleep in you've come to the right place! Checkout is 12 noon. Later check-out may also be available by request. An early check-in can also be arranged if you are an international arrival and there is no booking prior to your stay.
I'm very well travelled and know exactly how daunting it can be to find yourself in an unfamiliar city or country. At the property you'll find a comprehensive guest manual which includes maps, brochures for local restaurants/cafes and tourist attractions. If there's anything else I can help you with please feel free to message me :)

The pantry is quite well stocked with basic food items, healthy breakfast cereals, fruit juice and long life milk for your use. We do not supply bread as this is very much a personal preference, however there is peanut butter, jam and honey in the pantry.
Coffee and tea can be found in the kitchen cupboard above the electric kettle. Check the pantry for plunger coffee!
All towels are kept in the linen cupboard in the hallway along with spare linen, blankets and pillows. Help yourself!
A one-off cleaning fee applies to each booking. This is paid directly to my professional cleaning provider to ensure the accommodation is of a 5 star standard when you check in.

The City of Greater Geelong provides a policy regarding its standard recycling and waste collection. Please do not put general household rubbish in the recycle bin which is kept in the garage. This bin is for cans, bottles & paper only.

A year ago I had never even visited Lara, but now I’ve fallen in love with the quiet rural charm and the close proximity to the coast all the great things in Geelong. I’ve been to many parts of the world, and in addition to meeting people I enjoy hearing about the travelling adventures of others. After my last trip to the USA I decided to create 'Chateau Dreamquest' to give people the comfort and style of a luxury hotel without the excessive cost. In my spare time I also run Dreamquest Music Academy in Melbourne and I’m passionate about teaching people the joys of learning music, whatever their age. Unless there is young children staying at the property, you’ll usually find a guitar and keyboard there for your personal enjoyment. I wish you a wonderful stay.
