Not too many rules, just the usual for your safety and well being.
Absolutely enjoy the space but please be respectful of the environment and also noise levels must be considerate, especially at night; as this is a home in a leafy suburban setting, and we like to keep our neighbours as friends...
The Homestay space you are booking is for four persons. It will be very clean on your arrival, and I ask that you leave it neat and free of rubbish on your departure, for if a greater cleaning service is required, then an extra fee will be charged.
This is a family oriented and child friendly home, however children and infants must be under active supervision by a parent or guardian, at all times. All responsibility and duty of care for them must be provided by you, including their personal equipment and needs.
No EXTRA ADULT overnight visitors.
Drinking in social moderation is acceptable.
NO parties or events, no illegal activity or inappropriate anti-social behaviour.
Please let us know immediately if something is malfunctioning so it can be rectified. However, all damages or missing items will need to be paid for by you before departure.
To maintain a fresh and healthy environment, this is a strict non-smoking premise. The openness of elevated houses causes cigarette smoke to drift. If you feel a need to smoke, there is one spot in the far corner of the yard that has been made available for use.
For fire prevention and safety - please do not leave any electrical appliances switched on when they are not in use, or when you are leaving for the day. This includes air conditioners, fans, hair straighteners and portable device chargers.
Pool closes at 10pm. To avoid injury, no bombing or running in the pool area. Children are not allowed in the gated swimming pool area without an adult actively supervising in the space for safety and as the lifeguard in an emergency. No drinking glasses or bottles are to be taken in to the pool area - only plastic allowed.
As a couple, Garry and I are always keen to travel and experience the world locally and internationally. This global village Earth, has so much to offer those willing to stop, breathe and appreciate her in all her natural and man made glory! We both work in an educational environment. I'm in administration and Garry teaches at our local university. We have 3 children and 4 grandchildren. We both hold NT Safely Working with Children Cards and have NT Police clearances.
Our home has physically grown over the years, and now our renovated ground level empty nest, is available for visitors just like yourself. It is completely self contained.
On a personal note, we enjoy reading, have eclectic tastes in music, and enjoy most things. Life's too short to take it for granted. We have never been "party animals" but prefer smaller numbers to truly engage and laugh. We like taking walks, enjoying a delicious cheap meal or movie, or simply sipping a glass of wine whilst watching the Wet Season storms, or Dry Season sunsets. But mostly, we love meeting new people and hearing their stories.....
Whether a first timer or a returning visitor, you can be totally independent from us, doing your thing; or you can slow your pace and share your story with us! Your choice!
Come to the Top End of the Northern Territory and stay for awhile. Our Homestay experience could be just what you are looking for.................
