About this listing
Your accommodation consists of a SINGLE bedroom, with a SINGLE bed, your own bathroom and separate toilet. The house, which is light-filled and comfortable, is located within walking distance of such attractions as Melliodora Permaculture site, the Mineral Springs and iconic Bathhouse, golf course and Hepburn Springs village.
A toy poodle and a cat also live here, but they don't demand attention, or access your room.
Solo travellers, or two friends who prefer separate rooms, are well catered for in my welcoming home.
The living area of the house is open plan, with a selection of comfy leather couches, a huge dining table, breakfast bar and TV.
Your bedroom is fairly compact, but the large windows admit ample natural light. Your room has a SINGLE bed with fluffy pillows - feather and/or foam - and quality linen. A BIR, bedside tables, stocked book case, reading lamps and electric blanket are there for your convenience and comfort. A heater is also available to make your room even cosier in the winter months. A fan is provided in Summer.
Breakfast is included in your tariff, and consists of Carman's muesli, Jalna yogurt, locally baked sourdough bread for toast, home made jams, spreads and a selection of Twinings tea bags, loose tea and brewed coffee.
You might also want to have eggs and YOU may cook them any way you wish.
The back and front decks, tea house and garden are at your disposal. Feel free to take your meals and or drinks al fresco.
Books, games and jigsaws are available.
It's your home away from home at a reasonable price.
While you are here, please let me know if there is anything you require, or anything I can do, to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
Guests are welcome to make use of the kitchen, and basic pantry items are available. The fridge will have space for the items you need to keep cool, but there is no room in the freezer.
It is requested that there be no cooking after 9.00 pm and that everything is cleaned and put away as it was. I do not charge a cleaning fee, so I appreciate your efforts to maintain a clean and tidy shared space.
You can make yourself a tea, coffee or cool drink at any time.
The spacious back deck and cute teahouse provide lovely sheltered spots to sit and read and enjoy a G &T or cuppa while luxuriating in the serenity.
A washing machine is available. Please ask me to show you how to use it. A gold coin donation please.
You are welcome to take advantage of the shared living space, with comfy couches, TV and climate control. Charlie and I will be only too happy to keep you company.
It's your holiday, so feel free to spend as much or as little time with us as you wish. The free Wi-Fi enables you to keep in touch with family and friends.
You probably won't see Eddy the cat. So, if you have an allergy, you should be OK. Discuss with me before you confirm your booking.
Your room is your private domain, and we do not enter at all for the duration of your stay.
Unless there is another guest, the bathroom and toilet are solely yours.
The bathroom consists of a shower, basin and separate bath. You are supplied with bath sheets, towels, soap, shampoo and conditioner and a hair dryer. A bathrobe / dressing gown is in your wardrobe.
Other rooms are strictly out of bounds and you are asked to respect our privacy. Any breach will result in termination of your booking and you will be asked to leave.
My aim is to please, if there is anything you need, do not hesitate to let me know.
Interaction with guests
I am available to help you plan your visit and assist with information about the local areas of Hepburn Springs and Daylesford.
You are welcome to relax in the lounge and dining area or on the deck after your busy day out.
We will not be offended, or surprised, if you prefer the solitude of your room.
Other things to note
My dog, a toy poodle, lives inside. Charlie is cuddly once he gets to know you, but you don't need to interact with him if that is your wish. Eddy, the cat, is elusive and you will be lucky to sight him during your stay.
You are asked to respect the peace and quiet of the neighbourhood. Please maintain a neat shared space. It is expected that the kitchen be left clean after use. No cooking after 9.00 pm.
I don't ask for a bond or security deposit, so any breakages or damage must be paid for.
