Other things to note
Please note the studio sleeping arrangement.... this actually means you sleep in the open plan lounge which is actually very nice and fun. If you are a couple you can have two double futons to share (one on top of the other). If the booking is for three or four people then the futons are separated so you get one for two people ... so you will need to be (URL HIDDEN) NZ we call it Marae styles. Perfect for holidays:)
Hi and Welcome to my home.
I hope you enjoy your stay in Kingston. Here is some info and a few house rules :)
The shop up the top by the main road is the only place to buy food and get a drink, but they close quite early.
The fire is easy to light but needs a bit of attention just to get it going.
Help yourself to wood outside. It is best to dry out any damp wood by the fire.
Please use the damper on the right side of fire once the fire is underway.
No footwear on inside please.
The house is built as a holiday home and is on tank water that is limited.
The water supply is not on mains pressure so your shower experience may be a little like a gentle rainfall. You need to turn the dial right around to its halfway into the hot (red) zone. At this point the hot water reaches the mixer. Please ensure the shower is not dripping when you turn it off. It takes a couple of nudges either side of the off arrow to work out this spot.
The heat pump is there if you need it.
The Kayak is a good quality sea kayak and there are a couple of lifejackets in the carport. The lake is beautiful but very cold so you will need to be careful if it turns rough.
This is not unlimited
The details are on the back of the modem on the sideboard.
