Other Things to Note •As we are on tank water, please be ‘water wise’ by not letting taps run. The house runs on solar hot water, so if the sun is not shining, you may need to switch on the hot water booster located in the laundry (switch on wall to your left as you enter) which takes approximately one hour to heat up.
• Septic System: Please NO bleach products down the drains. Toilet paper only no wipes. Discard all other sanitary items in bins provided (extra toilet paper under bathroom sinks).
•There is an unfenced dam on the property, so mind your children.
•Be mindful when walking in the bush. It is vast out there, and you can easily lose your bearings. Stay on the trails.
Before leaving, we would greatly appreciate it if you could leave the house as you found it and:
•Turn off all lights, fans and heaters.
•Load the dishwasher and switch it on.
•Take out the rubbish and dispose in the bins at the bottom of the drive (yellow for recycling, red for rubbish).
•Return keys to safe and scramble numbers. ...
