Pets are welcome but there is a pet fee of $60 which covers the extra cleaning time we do after a pet has stayed. Please follow these rules when staying with your pet/s:

  • Your pet must either be on a leash or in a carrier while at our place, OR, under your control at all times.

  • Please pick up any toileting left around our grounds with a plastic bag, then tie the bag closed and place in the rubbish bin. Please do not place un-bagged faeces directly into the rubbish bin as we have to take the rubbish to the refuse station ourselves.  

  • We prefer pets to not sit on the beds or furniture but if they have a habit of doing this, please bring a blanket or cover to place over the bed or furniture. If you don’t have a covering, we will provide one for you.

  • Please ensure your pet doesn’t make excessive noise, or is disruptive or aggressive towards other guests, or our family. If your pet is deemed dangerous, we may have to ask you to find alternative accommodation.


Property damage

Please let us know of any damage to the property immediately. Depending on the severity of damage, we may charge additional costs for damages and/or additional cleaning required.
