The house can accommodate either 2 couples, 1 couple, 3 people ( 1 couple and a single), or 2 singles. Privacy is ensured – each bedroom is separated by a vast living area. Both bedrooms afford wonderful mountain views – at dawn and dusk each day expect to see kangaroos grazing outside your bedroom window!

Yes. All bookings are for the exclusive use of the residence, we have a different tariff for 1 couple, 2 couples, 3 people or 2 singles.

What is the minimum length of stay?

There is a 2 night minimum stay, with a 1 night stay incurring a $50 surcharge. 4 night minimum stay during Easter and Melbourne Cup weekend.

Will I be able to observe kangaroos from the house?

Yes, many kangaroos and native birds graze and feed quite close to the house and you can watch them through the windows.

Do you cater for children and pets?

We have some potential hazards for toddlers and young children such as a wood burning fire, for this reason we consider the property “suitable for adults” with the exception of infants and children over 16. With regard to pets, because of our proximity to the National park and the kangaroos and birds, sorry, but we are unable to accommodate your pets.

Is there a non-smoking policy?

Yes, Guests must refrain from smoking within the property.

What is your cancellation policy?

28-14 days prior 25% deposit held.

What are the check-in and check-out times?

Check-in: any time after 3pm. Checkout: 10.30 am.

Do you offer late check-out?

Unfortunately not. We need to allow time to maintain the meticulous standard of the house and garden, as you will appreciate if you have previously stayed at Top Paddock. We therefore regret that we cannot provide late checkout.

What do we need to do when checking out?

Ensure that you lock the rear & front door and replace the key in the security box. Turn off all lights, draw the curtains and blinds. Also please leave us a note in our guestbook – we appreciate your feedback.

What do we need to clean?

Cleaning of the property is included in your tariff however we request that you leave the house in a clean and tidy condition with dishes washed and put away, bins emptied, tables and kitchen benches wiped down, BBQ cleaned (if used).

Please dispose of rubbish correctly (there is a bin at the front gate). If a breakage does occur, please let us know so that it can be fixed or replaced in time for the next guest.

Please try to avoid moving furniture as it is heavy work for Jenny to replace.
