What is there?
In the kitchen you’ll find a stovetop with 4 hotplates, an oven, microwave, toaster and Nespresso Coffee Pod Machine. Pots, pans, knives, bottle openers and all your standard eating /drinking ‘usuals’ are there. There is also a Webber BBQ with hood in great condition (with a spare gas bottle).
Be sure to stock up, as it is 22km to town. There is a great kitchen to cook in, so we recommend staying in and cooking up a feast. We invite you to use the basic condiments you find in the pantry such as the salt, pepper, olive oil, coffee, tea and vegemite. You will find rubbish bags, dishwasher tablets, gladwarap and those household essentials all there.
There are two televisions, both with DVD players. There is Wi-Fi, board games and a small selection of books and magazines.
We ask that you bring all linen and towels. We also provide tea towels, hand towels and bath mats (as everyone forgets these including us). At this point - August 2016, we do not have a linen service in the area. Stay tuned as we are working on it.
Pets are welcome, but only outdoors pets. No pets are allowed inside the house. We have set up a dog/pet bed and bowls for food/water on the downstairs outdoors deck (which is undercover). Naturally, we expect you clean up all dog mess left in the yard.
The back and sides of the property are fenced with basic wire fencing. The front is fenced with a large timber fence and gate on both sides. So it allows your dog to be enclosed in the backyard securely.
Mobile Phones & Wi-Fi
Those whose mobile phone provider is Telstra should easily find reception inside the house -to the front of the property on both levels. Other service providers are not as reliable, but guests should generally have reception out the front of the house.
You’ll find Instructions for connecting to the Internet in the Shearwater Beach House information folder.
