"Valhalla Chalet"; a 5 Star three bedroom fully self contained chalet in Sawmill Settlement with the option of daily room servicing / cleaning. The Chalet is two minutes drive from Mt Buller. Brand new and completed in July 2018.
All guests receive a free hamper containing two bottles of Jamieson's Run wine; Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, three packets of sea salt chips, firelighters, matches, a genuine hide key holder or credit card holder and a bag of marshmallows.
There is an open concrete block fire place under a wide flat screen TV. Real chesterfield lounge and a three stacker glass sliding door to the enormous balcony overlooking the declining knolls of Grollo's farm. A handmade wooden dining table, and real stained and varnished tree stumps from the trees cut down on the site are used as bedside tables.
Top of the range wood grain aqua-deck lines the entire Chalet which is designed for wet snow gear drying in the laundry. A queen sized bed in the master bedroom with TV, and a double bed bunk in the front bedroom with two kids bunks in the last room.
All beds are equipped with a dooner, a very rarely seen 800GSM mink blanket, and a heat seal blanket. The bedding is state of the art and designed specifically to keep you toasty warm in negative temperatures.
Climate control to the main living area where there's the choice of a 7Kw split system or the open fire or both. The bedrooms have a ceiling fan in summer and small blow heaters in winter, however the manchester has been carefully selected to accomodate the most freezing or boiling temperatures all year round so leaving a heater on will make you too hot
There is phone reception for Optus and Telstra customers, but no reception for Vodafone users at the Chalet.
You will be sent instructions a few days before you arrive containing information on all the services the Chalet has to offer and how to check in.
There is a 2 night stay minimum through winter however this is negotiable. 5 night stays earn a discount and an extra arrival hamper.
After you have parked out the front of VALHALLA CHALET text "Check in" to 0406 XXX XXX and the pin code to the lock box will be immediately SMS'd to you. If you are not with Telstra then text me on your way through Mansfield. Walk around the side of the Chalet to the carport driveway. Walk up the driveway where you will locate the lock box. You will need a torch if arriving at night to locate the lock box. For the duration of your stay, guests are encouraged to leave the house keys in the dining room table fruit bowl so as to not loose them. Please make sure they are locked back in the lock box when you depart.
HOT WATER AND STOVE COOKING
Please familiarize yourself with the two large gas bottles located on the side of the house. These gas bottles supply VALHALLA CHALET with hot water and the stove with gas. If you find that the hot water and stove are empty, switch the empty gas bottle over to the full gas bottle using the lever between the bottles and text “Gas bottle refill” to 0406 XXX XXX to ensure you do not run out of gas during your stay.
FRIDGE AND MICROWAVE
Please switch on the fridge and microwave using the power point switches in the kitchen.
Kindly use the chopping boards provided when cutting food on the benchtops as the bench tops will damage unless a board is used.
During social hours the most effective way to heat / cool the VALHALLA CHALET lounge area is to close all the doors to bedrooms and bathrooms and the main living area will heat / cool within minutes. Please be aware that leaving the split system on all night does not heat the bedrooms due to the configuration of the house.
To improve your comfort, turn the little heater on in the bedroom for half an hour before you go to bed. Be assured that the bedding and bed making configuration is specifically designed to keep you toasty warm in negative freezing temperatures. Leaving a heater on may make you too hot.
During your stay at VALHALLA CHALET you may wish to wash your linen. If so there is a laundromat in Merijig or Mansfield. The washing machine and dryer at the Chalet are only capable of small loads of clothing.
The driveway that leads to the carport is for four wheel drive access only and it is highly recommended that you do not use it. Please use the driveway to the front of VALHALLA CHALET as any attempt to mount the carport driveway may cause damage to your vehicle.
Firewood is found in the forest across the road or nearby on the neighbouring blocks of vacant land. At present, the indoor fire flue needs attention as the house was finished being constructed in August 2018. Any attempt to use the fire will smoke the house out. However there is a fire pit just out side the front door and some stumps to sit on to roast those marshmallows and surround yourself in nature.
A complementary hamper is provided to all guests every five days, which includes two bottles of wine; Jamieson Run's Cabernet Sauvignon, and Jamieson Run's Chardonnay, three packets of sea salt chips, a packet of marshmallows, fire lighters, matches and a hide key ring or credit card holder.
If you would like an additional hamper at any time during your stay then one can be provided by making a $70 PayPal payment to XXXXXX@ and the code to the safe in the kitchen will be sms’d instantly to you which contains a second hamper.
