ADDITIONAL NOTES

- A lot of this home is in its original 70s state, there is a 42 inch TV, but the property is suited as a retreat not a luxury, modern stay. Due to the location (in a national state park), there is a lot of wildlife including spiders, occasional snakes (more so in warmer months). It is also very quiet so often there are noises from wildlife in the night that can be heard.

- Due to the location of this property, we have a strict NO PARTY policy at this home if you intend to invite additional visitors other than the guest listed we require times and total cars in your booking request.

- We have very strict policies around fire safety. The property is located in an area with a bushfire overlay and there are very specific rules to protect our visitors, our neighbourhood and our environment.

- There is a security camera installed facing the driveway and we make a record of all cars that enter the property and a max of four cars onsite.

- This is a very quiet and sensitive neighbourhood, and our immediate neighbour's privacy and respect are paramount to us.

Guest access
The entire property except the bungalow/studio where our caregivers live

Other things to note
Fire Safety: Due to the location, Nillumbik council properties are at threat to bushfires. On Extreme fire rating day's we would recommend that the property be vacated.
