The House

Children and Pet Friendly - A Perfect Family Getaway

This 1400 sqft space has 5 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and is fully furnished and equipped to make your stay as convenient as possible. For bookings of 6 nights or more, general housekeeping will be provided at a mutually agreed time. Go relax and enjoy the day while someone else does the cleaning! 


The house is located on 3 wooded acres - go for a walk along the path in the woods and immerse yourself in 'forest bathing'. Studies show shinrin-yoku, also known as forest bathing or time spent in green spaces, can reduce the stress hormone cortisol and increase your immune defense system.      


The space is very flexible and can accommodate almost any groups' needs.  Please ask your host if you require help creating sleeping arrangements.

The house is on a spectic system. Please flush only the 3 p's - you know pee, poo and paper! If it can't be digested don't flush it!

Feel free to take a book home if you haven't finished it or leave one behind for the next guests!

In case of a power outage, battery operated lights have been added to the power outlet in each room. These will come on automatically and will last 6 hours. Please do not flush toilets without filling the tank with the water provided as the well pump will be out.

House Rules

Please respect the home that we are sharing with you!

  • Children and pets welcome;
  • Please be considerate to both your host and future guests by not cooking  any foods that may leave a lingering smell. We have had an unpleasant  experience which took 3 days to clear out! Please use the BBQ outside if  you want to cook these types of food.
  • There is no microwave in the suite. If you require one, please bring it with you.
  • Please pick up after your dog; dog must be leashed as the owners have cats;
  • Ban on camp fires in the valley during the dry season - no pit fires allowed.
  • There are a few steps in the suite (baby gate provided) and the property is tiered, so toddlers need supervision at all times;
  • Filtered and UV'd well water. On septic system so only flush what is  necessary. Please put feminine products, diapers and paper towels in the  garbage bin provided. Large groups need to conserve water and stagger  water usage like showers, washing and dishwasher loads. The well pump  will not be able to keep up water supply to the house if the demand is  too large;
  • Please be respectful towards the neighbors and keep the noise down, especially between 10 pm and 7 am;
  • No  smoking of any kind (that includes marijuana and vaping) anywhere on  the property. A $250 deep cleaning fee will be charged as a result of  any smoking in the suite.
  • Please dispose of your garbage and recyclables in the bins provided. Bins are located under the carport.
  • There  is a $100/night extra charge for every additional person after the  capacity limit of the reservation which is 12. We want to ensure that  everyone is comfortable during your stay with us.
  • During  the colder months (October-March) when the outdoor areas aren't being  used, the indoor capacity is 8 adults with or without children. This  will ensure everyone's comfort!
  • Ladies, please remove  your makeup before going to bed! It is really a shame to have to throw  pillowcases and towels away because the waterproof mascara won't come  out! Appreciate your help with this one.


The hosts reside in the upper half of the house and are always available to answer any questions you may have. There are cats that reside with the hosts so you will occasionally hear them running and playing!
