The SpaceOur guest flat is an apartment that comfortably accommodates up to two people - no children please, and definitely no more than two people so please do not ask for more than two people to stay in the flat as refusal may offend. Very private and you can come and go as you please. The guest flat is attached to the main residence but has private access so you have your own space entirely to yourself. Comfort and peace and quiet - the place to unwind and recover from the rush of modern life, or a good base to work from if you are in the area for business. Wake up to the sounds of native birds in the surrounding rainforest. Perhaps start the day with a swim in the salt-water pool. The guest flat provides you most things you'll need including iron and ironing board, hairdryer, toiletries, TV, access to WiFi, reverse cycle air conditioning, bathrobes, towels for use at our pool, and of course we provide all bed linen and towels in the bathroom so you do not need to bring your own. There isn't a full kitchen for preparing meals but there is a microwave, toaster, electric kettle, sandwich press, fridge, crockery, cutlery, a dining table - the essentials for preparing your own snacks or salads. On request, access to the BBQ in the main house until the new BBQ for our guests is completed. We provide a selection of coffees and teas and hot chocolate, including herbal teas and decaffeinated coffee. Included in the tariff we provide breakfast essentials such as several types of cereals, bread, milk, juice, yoghurt etc for you to prepare your own continental breakfast. Please note that there are several steps down to the guest flat, with a secure handrail to assist. If you usually have difficulty negotiating stairs then this may not be a suitable accommodation for you. The guest flat is not accessible to those in wheelchair or walking frame. Business travellers are very welcome. (Note: a covered BBQ area is scheduled for construction in 2nd half of 2016 adjacent to the guest flat and exclusively for use by AirBnB guests) Guest AccessOn request, you have access to the laundry facilities in the main residence, or alternatively there is a coin-operated Laundromat in the nearby town of Woombye. On request, you have access to the BBQ located on the main house terrace, until the guest flat BBQ area is constructed 2nd half of 2016. You have access to our pool. Please note that during the coolest months (from May to August) the pool solar heating is turned off as the pool loses all the daily solar gain during the cool of the night, making it very expensive in electricity to run the solar heating pump over winter. During the rest of the year (September through to April) the pool heating is on daily and ambient air temperature maintains pool temperature at about 26-30 degrees throughout the day. Interaction with GuestsWe mostly work from home and so you can expect to see us around the property most days. We are happy to interact as much or as little as you want - if you want complete privacy then that is not a problem. We have a home theatre we frequently use - if you would like to join us to watch a movie and share a bottle of wine then please let us know. When you arrive we will show you to the guest flat, provide you the keys and a brief orientation to the property, and then leave you to settle in. The NeighborhoodOur property lies within the Montville precinct but it is actually about halfway between Montville on the summit of the Blackall Range and Palmwoods located at the foot of the Range - please note that we are not within walking distance into Montville village and it is about a five minute drive to get to Montville. The area is very picturesque, peaceful, and Montville is a quaint village with much to offer tourists. The Blackall Range has many beautiful scenic views and towns, there are waterfalls and scenic walks through rainforest sanctuaries. The area is also known for its arts and crafts and galleries, and there are many award-winning restaurants in the area. We can provide some suggestions for things to see and do in the area - at time of booking please let us know if you'd like us to forward some local information and recommendations to assist your planning. Getting AroundOur property is not convenient to public transport and it can be quite expensive to travel by taxi to and from our property - you therefore need to have your own vehicle. Rental cars are available at Maroochydore (Sunshine Coast) airport or at pick up locations in Maroochydore. We have off-street parking for you. Please contact us for directions on how to locate the property if the directions you are able to access after making a booking are unclear.
