Other things to note
Cottage is a traditional eco design and picks up the breezes. Surrounded by shady trees. Cottage has overhead fans, split system aircon, and the roof is insulated. It stays nice and cool// Check out at 1200; Check in at 1030 - unless alternative arrangements are made with the host. //You can swim at the beach between May and October (at your own risk). Stinging jellyfish are not present at this time. However, it is recommended that you swim in the pool, as crocodiles are present all year round. Rapid Creek contains a number of crocodiles. Please do not swim there or stand with your feet in the water.
No smoking at all. (Sorry, even smoking outside the front gate drifts into the house). //Excessive drinking and loud music is not compatible with the way we live. Unfortunately you'll be asked to leave.// Please keep the gates closed to keep the dogs in the yard. //If you are booking with children, consider the pool in the yard. It is fenced but proximity to the cottage means there is a risk.
