CONSUMABLES: A great starter-set of consumables are provided for your convenience, likely enough for your whole stay (toilet paper, paper towel, dishwasher tablets, washing powder, kitchen sponges, soaps, food wraps, pepper+salt, coffee+tea etc.).
ACCESS: The design of the house means there's no need to use stairs to access the upper level (4 bedrooms/2 bathrooms/living spaces)-just enter via the rear door. If you're using the 2 downstairs bedrooms & bathroom, you can enter via the front door or using the stairs inside. The backyard rumpus room requires using about 10 steps to access.
CHECK IN / OUT TIMES: Unless otherwise advised, standard check in is from 3pm, check out by 10am. Guaranteed Early Check In / Late Check Out by arrangement (fee applies). This gives us plenty of time to prepare perfectly for your stay - we don't cut corners with cleaning! 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 fabulous holiday!
YOUNG CHILDREN: Kindly note that Rawson's is a luxury property, not generally suitable for some children under about 5-6 years due to the finishes & styling: it's certainly not kid-proof, as it's primarily intended for older kids, teens & adults. If you do bring a little one, they will need caring, responsible supervision to avoid any damage etc.- thank you kindly. This isn't to say that little one's cant stay - many families have had a lovely time & we can gladly supply a portacot, toys & highchair- but it's important to know that effective supervision is required
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 - certainly not left filthy or trashed. A big thank you!
PARTY POLICY: This property is located in a peaceful residential area, so 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 celebration) require prior approval, only booked guests may attend the property (absolutely no extra day or night visitors unless they are booked, paying guests) & absolutely no loud music or disturbance to neighbours.
COVID RELATED: We do not do isolation/quarantine or illness recovery stays. Please don't visit if you're sick or contagious.
TRAVEL INSURANCE: Sometimes holidays don't go as planned, and something may arise which prevents travel or impacts your stay, such as illness, missed or cancelled transport or weather events . As such, Travel Insurance is highly recommended.
ANY QUESTIONS?: Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions at all, its a pleasure to welcome you to beautiful KI for a wonderful stay. We're friendly & genuinely care about providing you a wonderful space that exceeds expectations!
