House rules for Bundeena Garden Studio:
Please read this carefully before your visit so you know what to expect.
If you need anything at all or have any other questions, please don't be afraid to ask – we want to make sure you enjoy your visit ☺
• CHECK IN/OUT
Please advise of your time of arrival by text message or email. Check in is usually after 2pm, check out is normally before 12pm (noon), but these can be negotiated if there are not adjacent bookings.
You can pick up the key from us in the main house, or will be advised where to pick up if we are not at home. Ensure when you leave the studio that the doors are locked.
• YOUR ROOM
Sheets are changed for each visitor, but not the bedcover and cushion covers, so please keep them clean. The room is not serviced during your stay, so please hang towels for re-use.
A broom is provided – a mop and vacuum cleaner available on request. There is a clothes airer in the kitchen, and also retractable washing line under the sink that can be mounted on the deck, if you need to hang beach towels etc.
Please use the extractor fan when having a shower. DO NOT flush anything other than toilet paper down the toilet. Anything else must be wrapped and put in the bin.
Please leave the studio clean and tidy. Where excessive cleaning is required, we will deduct $30 for each extra hour of cleaning from the security deposit.
You can use any of the basic supplies in the kitchen – tea, coffee etc. Meals (including breakfast) are not provided. The local shop is open from 8am to 8pm for your supplies, and there are local cafes.
Please keep gates closed, and don't feed the wildlife including birds – Possums, Deer and Cockatoos do a lot of damage to the garden and shouldn't be encouraged. Feeding them ‘human' food is bad for their health. You may hear some strange noises from the wildlife – for instance possums jumping on the roof or the deck at night, and making hissing and growling noises – this is normal!
