INSIGHTS & INFORMATION
THE BEAUTIFUL OTWAYS
There’s much to see and do in the Otways region, so do contact us if you’d like advice on the local attractions. We have detailed maps, local hiking maps, and native animal, bird and plant life guides.
STAR AND PLANETARY OBSERVATION WITH OUR TELESCOPE
We have a professional-grade computerised telescope, and if the skies are clear, we may be able to give you an astronomical tour of the heavens. We have no ‘light pollution’ so the clear night skies are stupendous.
ENJOY THE OUTDOORS
There’s a BBQ for you, and feel free to use any of the outdoor seating and dining areas. There are bicycles in the workshop, a petanque set, and, in summer, a super-comfortable Mexican hammock can be found between two of the blackwood trees.
BRING YOUR PET
Pets may be welcome, though please discuss with us before booking. We have sheep and alpacas in neighbouring paddocks, and we need to ensure their safety. Just let us know the breed of your dog. The Otways can be wet, so please 'towel off' your dog before letting them inside, and they are not allowed on beds or furniture.
CANCELLATIONS and REBOOKINGS
During school holidays and on long weekends, we have minimum stay periods.
You'll receive a 100% refund for cancellations made 30 days or more before your stay. For cancellations made between seven and 30 days before your stay, we will provide a credit of 50% of the value of the booking to be used at any time in the following six months. Should last-minute COVID-19 restrictions prevent you from travelling, we'll provide a full credit to use within six months of the original booking. If you reschedule on this basis, the rate may be higher - or lower - than your original booking, depending on the time of year. Only one rescheduling per booking is possible, and this policy applies to bookings made on this site. Bookings made on other sites such as Airbnb will have the cancellation policy applicable on that site.
