Mandala Stonehouse is a five bedroom villa, accommodating up to 11 guests who love to relax and entertain in style after taking in the mountain air. Some bedrooms can be made inaccessible, allowing pricing to start at three bedrooms for up to six guests.
Just 25 kilometres over the mountains, west of Halls Gap, the Wartook Valley is close to Zumsteins Picnic Ground, and within easy reach of Lake Wartook, Mackenzie Falls, Fish Falls, Beehive Falls, Mount Zero and Mount Stapylton.
After your excursion into the mountains, relax on the deck with a drink and enjoy the sunset reflecting off the peaks. Later, take in the silent beauty of the night sky before retiring to the inner beauty of the house.

Terms and Conditions
Booking is secured by payment of a deposit, amounting to 20 percent of the tariff. Payment of the deposit constitutes agreement to these terms and conditions.
The balance of the tariff is due 14 days prior to the stay. If the balance is not received by the due date, the owner reserves the right to cancel the booking and attempt to re-let the property. If a cancellation occurs after the tariff due date, any payment is refundable only to the extent that replacement income is secured by reletting the property for the cancelled nights, less a $50 administration fee.
Also due 14 days prior to the stay is a $500 refundable damages deposit RDD, which is refundable within seven days of departure, subject to these terms and conditions.
The owner accepts no liability for natural events, including but not limited to adverse weather conditions, heavy rain, flood, bushfire, insect pests and other wildlife issues.
The photographs of the property most taken winter-spring 2016 and the description presented on this site are representative of the property at the time of recording.

The entitlement to accommodation is limited to the numbers agreed in the booking. Camping is not permitted, and guests are to be accommodated only in the beds provided. Extra tariff charges are payable for unauthorised guests. Some or all of the refundable RDD funds may be withheld as full or partial payment of any such charges. Further tariff charges may be sought from the guest if the RDD is insufficient to cover these extra charges.
Parties and functions are prohibited. The tariff entitles use of the property to declared guests only, and does not allow for the extra wear and cleaning associated with functions. Unauthorised guests or function use may result in termination of the booking and forfeit of the RDD.
Pets are generally not permitted. However, exceptions are possible for small pets who will not disturb wildlife or damage property. Your enquiry is welcome.
Smoking is not permitted indoors.

The owner accepts no responsibility for the loss, theft or damage of guest property during the stay, nor for anything left on the premises beyond the stay.

Variations to these conditions may only be made by prior written arrangement with the owner.
