Other things to note
Our poodle cross 'Molly' is enthusiastic to greet guests on arrival with a few barks and a wagging tale. She is completely harmless, but over friendly. She will respect your privacy once you have settled in. We also have a cat 'Milo', who like most cats can be curious, however he tends to keep to himself.
As we live upstairs, there could be the possibility that you may hear movement or sounds from above. We will however do our best to keep noise to a minimum.
We can not be held responsible for the failure or outages of public services, such as electricity, water, internet etc. We will make every effort to see the outage is corrected as soon as possible.
Strictly no smoking, candles or burning incense in the apartment or within our property.
Sorry we can not allow you to bring your pets.
We have a love for travel and discovering new places.
Here in Olinda we have found our most idyllic place to call home.
We want to share that with other travellers.
Life is an adventure of discovery.
There is so much to discover in Mount Dandenong.
Every season brings something special, from the occasional snow in winter, the amazing abundance of flowers blooming in spring, the incredible sunsets looking over the ranges in summer and the welcomed coolness from the trees, the colours of autumn, my favourite season.
We love to meet new people and of course welcome back friends who enjoy staying with us.
Gardening has become a new enjoyed hobby, creating and watching things grow.
Cooking meals to share with family & friends is a joy, especially when a lot of the produce comes from our own garden.
Music is enjoyed also amongst our talented musical friends from time to time. A love for art, particularly painting, sculpture and mosaic; some of which can be seen around our property.
We look forward to meeting you and sharing our environment of which we love so much.
