Enchanting and private chalet situated in a lovely garden right in the heart of St Kilda.
Please let me know if you intend to bring your pet. There is a secure yard but I need your assurances:
1) You will clean up after your pet and
2) Your pet is well behaved, and
3) You'll need to ensure your pet has its own bedding and does not sleep on the couch or bed, and does not come in contact with the supplied bed sheets, blankets, and towels.
My neighbours have cats and chickens so this is another consideration; if your pet (e.g. dog) makes a lot of noise then it will not be suitable at the chalet.
NO SMOKING INSIDE.
Strictly no-smoking policy inside the chalet. You are welcome to smoke outside, but please dispose of your butts/ash/rubbish thoughtfully in the rubbish bin.
Strictly no burning candles inside. (One guest cracked the glass coffee table by burning her candles! Another guest burnt the plastic knob on the bedside radio and managed to damage the bedside table. Yet another guest left pools of wax on my dining table! In short, I've endured too much damage because of guests supplying and burning their own candles - they have proven to be extremely dangerous (or perhaps I've just had an incredibly bad run of candle-mad guests?!?)
I would like all future guests to be able to enjoy the chalet and its furniture without dog hair on blankets, candle wax and candle burns, etc.
Please treat others in the same way you'd like to be treated.
The chalet is located in a Residential Street with very friendly neighbours (say hello to Ross and Sean, and Jeanine). My son Jan lives a few doors down. There's a harmonious vibe and sense of community that's important to me and my neighbours. If you listen carefully whilst standing in the courtyard, then you may hear the soft clucking of chickens from one of my neighbours! (note, there are no roosters!)
I respect the right of my neighbours to enjoy peace and quiet in their homes, and I ask you to make sure sure that no noise can be heard outside the house between 10pm and 8am.
Please, when Exiting and Entering the property, bear in mind that my neighbour's house-wall forms the wall of the walkway and it's made of wood. Therefore, please be quiet when walking down the path and along their house, as they can hear noises very easily and i don't wish to disturb them.
The advertised rental is Strictly for Domestic Use only and Not for Commercial use. The rental rate does not allow for the extra wear associated with functions or parties in terms of cleaning, garbage removal, wear and tear, repairs etc. Use contrary to this may result in loss of the security deposit and/or additional payments
You're very welcome to use the washing machine for your personal clothes.
If you're going to wash the supplied Bed Linen, Towels, and other Manchester, then please Wash the Whites Separately.
That is, Please Do Not Mix White Towels & White Sheets with Coloured Fabrics (sorry if that's obvious to you, but I've had numerous well-intentioned guests who've washed coloured-garmets with my white bed linens and towels).
Note the Clothes-Drying Line is located on a reel on the verandah, next to the red door. There's an additional clothes rack in the tool-shed.

Welcome to my profile. I've lived in St Kilda and the surrounding bayside areas for many years. I love spending time with my children and grand-children, gardening, and travelling with my husband Stipe. We really enjoy meeting interesting and kind people, especially travelers who are keen to explore this beautiful place. We also really like a nice glass or two of good Australian red wine!
