The lower section of our home is a fully self contained one bedroom apartment for sole use. It has a large light filled bedroom with a very comfortable queen bed fitted with a hi-loft mattress topper and quality linen, ceiling fan, plenty of hanging space and drawers in the mirrored robe. There is also a very comfortable reading chair with a lamp.
The air-conditioned open plan lounge, dining and kitchenette is roomy with a large flat screen TV and video, Sony player, board games, well stocked library of books and movies and even a piano.
The collection of art and artefacts that are in the apartment are originals that we have collected from our own travels over the years.
The bathroom has a very large doorless shower with a floating full width vanity basin. All towels and linen are supplied as well as beach towels and shade umbrella for the beach, as well as shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. The toilet with its own wash basin is separate from the bathroom.
The kitchen is very well stocked with all utensils, kettle, toaster, 1 very fast plug in cooktop and electric skittle pan with high domed lid, sandwich press, microwave oven, crockery and cutlery for 6 and a fridge of course. In the pantry for your use is cooking condiments and oils, tea, instant coffee and coffee capsules. There's also a bottle of milk in the fridge along with still water, fruit and some chocolates to welcome you with.
Guests also have sole use of the entertaining area with seating and shade umbrella in the front yard. While it's not for parties or large groups having a catch up with your friends is ok.
As it's not a serviced apartment we don't change the linen and towels during your stay however for longer stays fresh linen and towels are supplied for your convenience which you can change yourself.
We hope you like our space as we do, we've tried to fit it out along the style of how we like to live when travelling and that is a home away from home. We try to ensure our guests are comfortable and enjoy your stay with us so please let us know if you require anything special or need information and we'll try to have that for you. Either myself or Madonna will always be available to meet you on arrival and show you around.
Entry to the pad is at the left side of the house through your own door, there is no access to the rest of the house from downstairs as it's locked off. Madonna and I live upstairs and utilise the other bedroom downstairs mainly for storage but not for sleeping, there isn't a bed. Guests have their own private area in the front yard with seating and shade umbrella.
There is a driveway down the side as well altho when we have guests it doesn't get used so as not to disturb you.
Check in is easy, if I'm not at home I leave the keys in a security lock box at the front gate and send you the details and access code so you can arrive at any time it suits.
Early check in and late check outs are ok too if there is not another guest arriving or leaving so please just ask, you are always welcome to drop off your bags if you need to wait.
We respect our guests privacy and can interact as much or as little as you like.
We live in a quiet residential family area and ask our guests to be respectful of this.
Altho we have check in and check out times we're flexible with that if there is not another booking so earlier check in and later check out times are ok.
It's very quiet and residential in this part of Mermaid Beach and you'll find all the locals very friendly and helpful, we often have a sunset drink on the wooden deck at the top of the beach, it's a very pleasant way to live and I hope guests get to enjoy the feeling as I do.
We're very particular with cleanliness and all bedding, towels and tea towels are hot washed, sanitised and sun dried, the bathrooms are thoroughly cleaned and all areas vacuumed and mopped each time between guests to ensure freshness and a pleasant stay.
We're non smokers and ask our guests not to smoke on the premises and sorry but no pets. No parties or loud noise is allowed, my partner and I live peacefully upstairs.
