Interaksi dengan tetamu
Due to our busy lifestyle and sometimes staying at another property, we require guests who are independent although we both love meeting new people and will make time for a chat and to make sure you have everything you need.
We have also had guests who hold picnics on the lawn with their own guests due to the large amount of space.
If you're musical, feel free to bring your weapon of choice to join in on some fun racket making if we are about..

Perkara lain untuk Diketahui
It is important for guests to know that we are not located in walking distance to shops etc. For many this will be the attraction, however we do not want people to be disappointed (or give poor ratings about location) when they realise this.
We are on tank water so we try to be mindful of water use and if you are not keen on drinking it, you may wish to bring some bottled water.
It's also important to note that the cottage does not have a laundry. If you need to do washing there is a laundromat close by in Hastings and Somerville.
We have decided to not charge a cleaning fee with the expectation that guests will leave the place as they found it (we will wash linen etc). This is to make it cheaper for everyone. If however, you need to leave early or you just don't want to, please let us know early and we will arrange a cleaner for $40. We are on septic water here, so there are just a few rules around what can be flushed or put down the drain. It's no biggie- we'll just leave an information sheet for guests.
We ask that guests please do not drive on the grass as there are pipes and things under soft ground. We would also like to keep the grass lovely for everyone to enjoy.
Of course, There is no smoking inside the unit but we are happy for you to smoke outside and respectfully dispose of the butts.
We appreciate your support
I'm a project manager in Infrastructure and Strategic Assets. I often stay in my apartment closer to the city to save on travel which unfortunately means I sometimes don't get to meet the guests.
My partner Paul lives part time on 8.5 acres in Tyabb which is where our Airbnb property is listed. Paul manufactures aeroplane parts from his factory which is located on the property way down the back.
Paul is an accomplished Harmonica player and I'm a guitar hack. We love meeting new people and are pretty excited about our Airbnb journey. We recently Airbnb'd through Vietnam which was a wonderful experience. We look forward to providing a wonderful experience in return for our guests.
