Cleaning notes: We spare no expense with cleaning to ensure your safe stay by cleaning between guests including:

- all bed linen (everything) dry-cleaned in between guest stays.
- fresh towels and hand-towels for each stay (dry cleaned before each new guest).
- all surface areas, EVERYTHING, disinfected with spray and wipe.
- all showers scrubbed and bleached.
- all toilet, seat and surrounds including floor fully disinfected.
- fresh dish clothes provided during your stay.
- a large stock of tea towels, washed between each visit.
- bath matts (dry cleaned before each new use).
- mattress and pillow protectors on all beds.
- linen for cot is BYO including infant pillows.
- BBQ cleaned before each stay.
- Ovens, microwave and fridge disinfectant sprayed before each stay.
- regular dusting
- we provide liquid hand-soap and shower gels (we do not provide cake soaps at all) for your use during your stay.
- we do not provide face washers but guests are welcome to bring these from home for their own comfort during their stay.
- we supply Kleenex ripple toilet paper but this supply situation has become challenged lately (we hope you understand).
- Dishes. Whilst Snowgum's dishwasher does have an economy cycle, we encourage guests to use the longest cycle with the hottest water (keep in mind the time of day you run the dishwasher as it could interfere with showering, we have heaps of water but finite hot water depending on guest numbers).
- Clothes washing. Whilst Snowgum's washing machine does have an economy cycle (which uses cold water), guests may use hot water for washing clothes during their stay (but keep in mind the time you run the washing machine as it could interfere with showering, we have heaps of water but finite hot water depending on guest numbers). Alternatively, we can recommend you to our dry-cleaners in Orange who will give you our corporate rates.

We understand our cleaning charge is one of the highest in the area and make no apology for this - but offer our guests, we think, a clean and safe experience ... so clean and safe that we as hosts stay in the home when it is not in use by Airbnb guests giving us an incentive to cut absolutely no cleaning corners having our own safety and hygiene in mind. Guests are welcome to call the hosts to discuss cleaning (contact details revealed upon booking).

The Space:

Snowgums Retreat, built around 1905, sits upon an acre of native gardens (being redeveloped) as part of the heritage Sunnyside Farm, one of the longest established farms in the district.

During your stay you will likely enjoy an abundance of native fauna and flora, especially native birdlife (subject to weather and seasonal factors) plus spend time talking with our resident celebrity sheep.

Inside the home you'll find many creature comforts and IT to keep you connected, whether you've come to Snowgums for work or play.

If you'd like to host a wedding on our land, we have 5 acres a marquee and all the equipment, so please feel free to enquire in advance.
