When you book a stay with us, you will be given a key to the back door. We ask that you enter and leave the house via the back door. There are sensor lights to guide you to the rear of the house.
The key for the downstairs front door is on a chain. We invite you to open the downstairs doors and enjoy the view and lovely breeze while you are at home but ask if you can lock the front door and draw the curtains when leaving or spending time away from the house.
The kitchen is fully equipped with an oven, dishwasher, fridge, Nespresso machine, blender, toaster, kettle and all the standard utensils to cook, bake and BBQ.
You will find tea and sugar in the cupboards upon arrival along with salt and pepper, basic spices and herbs and olive oil. Some Nespresso capsules have been provided to get you started. Anything left in the fridge or pantry is for you to enjoy. Please dispose of all perishables when you leave.
You have a selection of two TV’s. Foxtel is available on the upstairs television and a DVD player is connected to the downstairs set. Netflix, Stan or your preferred platform is available on both TV’s through your account.
This central area is air conditioned.
TV and A/C controls are placed on the coffee table.
Each bedroom is supplied with linen, bedding and bath towels. You will also find a ceiling fan in each room along with a cupboard, reading lamp and side tables. There is also a mozzie zapper with refills in the bottom kitchen drawer.
Linen, bedding and bath towels, along with instructions for using the sofa bed are in the mirrored cupboard of the downstairs bedroom. Note this is the red set.
Linen, bedding and a towel for the single chair bed are also in the mirrored cupboard in the downstairs bedroom. This is the charcoal grey set. Just lift the cover from the chair and fold out the bed. It’s very simple.
If you do use the linen for the sofa bed and/or chair bed, please leave on the sofa and/or bed when you leave so we know to have them laundered.
There are two bathrooms and a separate toilet upstairs. The bathrooms are stocked with hand towels, bath mats, toilet paper, hand wash and soap.
The laundry is situated upstairs and is equipped with a top loader washing machine, an ironing board, an iron, brooms and dust-pins. Some washing machine liquid has also been provided.
A Weber BBQ and outdoor dining setting are on the main balcony. Foil drip trays can be found in the kitchen in the cupboard above the fridge along with cleaning products under the sink. NB: Your BBQ utensils are hanging on the front of the Weber Q.
In the afternoon, it is a good idea to wind out the awnings. They provide shade from the sun but don’t block the wonderful views.
There is a separate balcony terrace connected to the master bedroom.
We have the house treated for pests regularly so the only nasties you will need to deal with are mosquitos. All windows have screens except the sliding doors at the front of the upstairs living area. We recommend burning a citronella candle in front of those doors if mozzies are about. There are candles and other aids to help keep mosquitos at bay in the timber bench seat on the balcony.
We ask that you don’t burn the citronella candles indoors.
We ask that you please do not smoke in the house but feel free to smoke outside.
We have provided towels that are for use in the property they will be placed on your bed. Please provide your own towels for use on the beach.
We have installed a hammock on the terrace level behind the house. The stand is left out permanently but the actual hammock can be found on the back of the laundry door. When you find it, just hook it onto the stand, grab a drink, lie back and enjoy the view! If there is rain or you are leaving the house, could please return the hammock to the laundry.
Bins are located under the sink and garbage bags are in the adjacent drawer.
There are three main waste bins located in the downstairs lockup – a general waste bin with a RED lid, a recycling bin with a YELLOW lid and an organic waste bin with a GREEN lid. The general waste garbage is collected early on a Monday morning each week and the other bins are collected on alternate Mondays. Check to see which one of the GREEN or YELLOW bins the neighbours have put out on Sunday night.
There is a good local store in Hardys Bay that also stocks a good wine list. A Woolworths is located in Woy Woy alongside Deepwater Plaza – 15 mins by car. The Kincumber Village Shopping Centre is 20 mins away and has a Coles Supermarket, a pharmacy and other assorted shops.
