CHECK IN / OUT TIMES: Standard check in is from 3pm, check out by 10am.  Guaranteed Early Check In / Late Check Out by arrangement (fee applies).

That said, the property will sometimes be ready for an earlier check in, so just let us know if you're planning on arriving in Kingscote earlier & we'll message you on the day as soon as ready for check-in.  Most guests to KI choose a midday or 1pm ferry & take the opportunity to have lunch at Dudley Wines on arrival day, before heading over to Kingscote in the late afternoon.

WHEN TO VISIT: Everyone loves the peak Festive Season to make the most of KI's amazing beaches, do the Dolphin Swim tour & enjoy bbq's and warm nights outside with friends-and who wouldn't! But don't overlook visiting in the cooler months for great bushwalking weather & stunning photography opportunities, or simply time to enjoy the fresh air, beach walks, a bit of fishing, wineries & explore the little shops. Irrespective of the season, there's SO much to do at the property, so even if you get a rainy day in the mix, it's still a fab holiday!

YOUNG CHILDREN: Kindly note that Rawson's is a luxury property, not generally suitable for children under about 6-8 years due to the finishes & styling: it's not kid-proof, as it's primarily intended for older kids, teens & adults. If you do bring a little one, please discuss with us as they will need caring, responsible supervision to avoid any damage etc.-thank you kindly. 

PETS: Sorry, pet's aren't allowed on the property-we have no insurance whatsoever for damage caused by animals or pets. Genuine Assistance animals provide valuable support & are naturally very welcome, however we'll just need to know in advance to make arrangements.

CLEANING: We do hope you love how clean the property is presented! It's the best compliment ever when guests tell us that our accommodation is the cleanest they've ever stayed in! Standard 'holiday rental' level cleaning is naturally included-you certainly don't have to mop floors & clean bathrooms-however it's not a small little hotel room and like most holiday rentals, it does just need to be treated respectfully, left neat & tidy, spills wiped up, bbq cleaned, rubbish in bins & items put back where they were found on arrival.  A big thank you!

PARTY POLICY: This property is located in a residential area, so sorry, absolutely NO wild, crazy parties, schoolies/buck's/hen's etc. here. You're very welcome to celebrate a special occasion in a quiet & sensible manner, however functions (such as a birthday party) require prior approval, only booked guests may attend the property (no extra day visitors) & no disturbance to neighbours-thanks.
