Casual "beach shack" living 50meters across the grass to the lake. Clear still water and a sandy bottom to the lake make for great swimming, boating, fishing or staring into space. Sit on a log seat and watch the sunset with a glass of wine.
Our unit is number 5 in a row of 7. There are 21 units spread over this large site. We have set up ours for self-contained comfort and relaxation rather than luxury. The lounge/dining/kitchen opens onto our large terrace which looks across the grass to the lake. The bedrooms are basic but comfortable, with a queen bed in the first and two single beds in the second, and both have ceiling fans. The bathroom is between the bedrooms. The dining area also has a ceiling fan, and there is an electric column heater. A communal coin-operated laundry (washing machine and dryer) is available and also an extra toilet next to the laundry. Clothes lines are available. We don't have a dishwasher. The unit has no wifi connection (most people use their smartphone connections for internet and emails.)
You park your car conveniently right in front of the unit. The grounds are extensive and wonderfully grassed leading down to the lake front beach - safe and great fun for kids. There is trailer access for launching boats. Our section of Smith Lake is shallow so kayaks and small boats are the go. The tennis court is not Wimbledon but good for a hit - the manager has a booking system in peak times but otherwise it's open access. Communal BBQs are both gas and wood burning.
Общение с гостями
The on-site manager's residence and office is on the right as you drive in. He or his wife will welcome you to Sandpiper and give you the keys. The managers are there to help if you need it but otherwise will leave you alone to enjoy our wonderful space. I can also be contacted by phone if you need to talk. Summer school holidays are the busiest times, then the shoulder months of February - April, September - November. If you like solitude, winter is great. We love it best at this time for just that reason.
Другие важные подробности
We supply blankets and pillows. Sheets and towels are not supplied but if this is a difficulty for you, you can hire them from our manager at AU$30 per stay. Please let me know if you would like to do this so he can have them ready to give to you on your arrival. We can also arrange for a cot and highchair to be available free if you let me know in advance. We have a wide range of our books, DVD's and CD's in the unit - enjoy. If you haven't finished reading a book by the time you leave, we don't mind if you take it with you, just maybe leave one in its place.
