The queen bed will be freshly made up and ready for you. We provide Sheridan 100% cotton sheets, comfortable bedding and large towels (bath sheets).
Because there is no fence we feel the apartment is not suitable for pets or young children.
You will have access to and sole use of the entire garden-level apartment. There is really good off-road parking and a private entrance to the apartment. The dedicated double car-parking area gives you level access and is right beside your door. You are also welcome to use our fish-cleaning bench and sink under our carport, but you may want to bring your own fish filleting knife and board.
Interaction with guests
During your visit, if we are in residence upstairs, we are friendly and like meeting people, but appreciate that people like their space. So we'll generally leave you to it but you are more than welcome to come up for a chat and we will happily provide more information about activities in the area.
If we are not at Arakoon during your visit, you can call or SMS me if you need information.
Other things to note
We leave fresh or frozen sourdough bread and sliced frozen fruit bread for toasting, a selection of spreads, some butter, cereal, milk, OJ, eggs, coffee and plunger, and a selection of teas so that you have breakfast items for the first day or two. We also provide boutique toiletry items. There is a Coles Supermarket 10 minutes away when you feel the need to stock up. Access to the apartment will be by a key code which I will notify before you arrive. The details for wireless ADSL internet are left near the TV.
