Check Out

Guests usually request a late check out at say 2.00pm, so that they can linger as long as possible, enjoy a sleep-in, morning swim, packing and cleaning up after lunch. Ideally guests strip their beds and leave the washing in the laundry to be sorted.

Enjoy a safe trip back home, to be in Melbourne by 4.00pm. A coffee stop mid-way is advisable, precious cargo on board.

Late check–outs are usually possible if bookings are not back to back.

It takes 12 man-hours to remake the beds for 15 guests, clean the four bathrooms, six bedrooms, kitchen, dining rooms and two lounges plus game room and yard to a high standard before the next guests arrive at 2.00pm.

Thus a 10.00am check out doesn’t leave much time to turn around the house. Three to four cleaners are required to do the cleaning in four hours.

Payments

Prepayment – Deposit

  • 50% pre-payment is required when booking is made.
  • This is based on season and duration of stay for either the entire house or ground floor only.

  • A cancellation occurring less than or about 10 days before commencement of booking will cost 50% of the booking cost i.e. deposit will not be refunded.
