THE BORING (BUT IMPORTANT) STUFF:
The below covers finer details of the property and the terms and conditions of staying. Not exactly exciting reading, but nonetheless important. Dont hesitate to ask if you have any questions at all!
Upon booking you agree that you have read and accepted the following:
Government ID must be shown upon check-in. Or if self-checking in to be emailed. This will be required prior to receiving the door code.
No parties, gatherings, smoking indoors, or overnight visitors, please. I have neighbours that will call me then the police of there is after hours noise on the property.
Care must be taken with furnishings and kitchen counter/table tops. ALWAYS use heat maps (supplied) and wipe up any stains immediately to prevent staining. Any damages will be charged to the guest.
The convenience of living so close to the city and in a very popular urban area is that there is street noise. Too soften this considerably, the main bedroom and the front living area have double doors to soften the city noise. You will find the living area and two bedrooms quiet.
Please check the terraces location on the supplied map so you know the location is suitable for you.
Extra guests/visitors. All guests and visitors must be registered on the booking. First and last name supplied. No other people other than the registered guests may visit or stay over UNLESS by prior arrangement.
Neat & tidy policy - Please clean up after yourself if using the homes facilities otherwise the bond will be forfeited. Please wash up and put away dishes at the end of your stay and remove the rubbish.
An important note on insects in Sydney: Visitors are often surprised at the large amount of insects in Australia and inner city Sydney, especially during the summer months. Be prepared to encounter many on your visit. Maybe adopt the "Aussie Wave" a well-known movement to get rid of pesky flies. :-) We have the home sprayed regularly but this only prevents crawling insects. This does not stop common flying insects such as mosquitoes, cockroaches, flies, and harmless non-toxic garden spiders that can fly in or squeeze around door and window frames. I have supplied bug spray if required but be assured 99% are totally harmless.
Stairs - There are steep stairs in this house, therefore it may not be suitable for persons with reduced mobility or children.
-The 3rd bedroom is quite small. 2.6m x2.9m with minimal hanging/storage.
The linens won't be ironed. But be assured, they are freshly professionally laundered and clean and hygienic. If you are after hotel new and perfect, this home may not be suitable.
Pets allowed by prior arrangement only and with a pet deposit by credit card paid. Strict conditions apply about cleaning up after the pet (all fur must be vacuumed, All excrement must be cleaned and bagged and disposed and any damage will be charged to a verified credit card) . A pet fee will apply of $15 per animal per night.
One clean is included in your visit prior to your arrival to set up the home. If you wish the professional cleaners to come again during your stay, please advise and I will organise for you.
On departure you must take out the rubbish, tidy up the space and wash and put away all dishes.
Check-in - Generally 3pm check in and 10.30am check out. These can be flexible if there is no guest checking in or out that day. However, I may not know until the day if you can have a late check out due to instant book being on. Guaranteed early check in and late checkout can be arranged for a fee.
Parking - There is no parking ON this property. There is street parking but it is timed during the weekdays. Street parking on the weekend, however, is untimed and free all weekend. There is free, untimed, all day parking about 10-15 minute walk from the home if required. I can arrange parking passes from the council for $8 per day if required.
Ladies - no high heels inside so the floorboards don't get damaged.
Rubbish Collection - Rubbish collection service is on Tuesday evening. I kindly ask guests to wheel the bins though the home to the front street on Tuesday evening and bring them back in on Wednesday (even if its just into the front porch). The red bin is for household food scraps and dirty rubbish; the yellow bin is for clean recyclables. Please note that no rubbish is to be put into the red bin unless it is BAGGED SECURELY first (I've had unfortunate instances where Ive had to clean the bin out by hand as someone put all their rotting pasta and sauce straight into the bin. Yuk!). Part of the bond will be forfeited if we need to clean out un-bagged rubbish or if there is excess rubbish not put out on the Tuesday night.
A movement activated video/sound camera is installed in the EXTERNAL foyer pointing away from the home towards the street entry for guest security as some guests store their luggage in this area.
Condition of property - While the house is kept clean and tidy, please note the home is not in new condition. It is an old and historic 1890's home and very rustic. The terrace is over a century old and has lived many lives. The front of the terrace is very unique (some may say downright ugly and I would tend to agree). There will be paint irregularities and some chipped tiles. But these just add to the character of the terrace.
Air-conditioning is only in the living area and the upstairs front bedroom. There are ceiling fans in the rest of the home which work wonderfully.
- We have a strict cancellation policy. I recommend travel insurance to cover any unexpected cancellations or flight delays. Usually your credit card has travel insurance included if you use this card to book.
