Things to know about “Strelitzia”
The owner lives on the property in a separate house with her two beautiful friendly Labradors. This is a good thing for you as a guest because I’m right here to help with anything you need.
Strelitzia is nestled in a culdesac, so whilst the house is definitely built to be enjoyed, I ask guests to be as mindful of my neighbours as you would be of your own.
Kids: The house is really perfect for adult gatherings, and whilst I’m open to appeals, it isn’t set up or suitable for children under 8 years.
Pets: Since my own dogs rule the roost here, I can’t allow other pets or it would be a barking fiasco. Needless to say I’ll keep my dogs out of your way while you are here
Check in 2pm 6pm Sundays - Sunday night price is reduced.
Check out 12 noon 2.00pm Sundays
Maximum number of people in the house overnight is 9. All people staying must be named on the booking. Minimum age of guests is 25.
