With Regard To Pets:

Dogs are very welcome in the TopHouse.However, due to a recent disaster, we are unable to accept Cats and have had to introduce some some strict rules:

All pets must be vaccinated, house trained, clean, well behaved, flea free, female pets not in-season, and no puppies. They must be supervised and restrained at all times while on the property. Pet owners are responsible for any damage caused by their pets and must pick up after them or agree to an extra cleaning surcharge.

Due to a recent event where our pet sheep were mauled by a supposedly trustworthy dog, with catastrophic results, we have adhered to an uncompromising policy where any transgression of our pet policy will result in you being asked to leave the property immediately with no provision for a refund.

We understand the love of a favoured pet, separation anxiety, and the difficulty in locating genuinely pet friendly or dog friendly accommodation and we stand by the simple philosophy: Your pet is as welcome in the TopHouse as he or she is in your own home. However, we ask that you use your discretion with regard to the high standard of our cottages, the well-being of our native wildlife and livestock and accept full responsibility for any damage and all cleanliness? It is important that you accept our Conditions of Use.dog friendly accommodation Victoria
Please let us know if you do intend to bring the pooch, and what concerns or requirements you may have but be assured they are most welcome. We will ensure that our dog friendly accommodation has arrangements as per your convenience. To this end we have provided a fenced area to give you the security and confidence you need to know that your pet is safe but not to be left unattended. Our beautiful forest trail is also available to them. Please refer to our "conditions of use" and be aware that a $40 surcharge does apply to each pet.

http://www.glenairecottages.com/media/pets/04.jpgBe aware that National Parks have strict guidelines with regard to restrictions on all domestic animals in National Parks and their current policies can always be confirmed by calling Parks Victoria on 131 963 or by visiting their website.

Johanna Beach, Victoria is dog friendly but the current status can always be confirmed with Parks.

Always remember that we are in a natural environment and while you and your pet's safety is our concern it is your responsibility and some conditions must apply.

Location

Glenaire, Victoria, Australia

The top House is set snugly into the hill surrounded by lovely big gums.
This offers protection from the wind without impeding the fabulous ocean, forest & valley views.
It is a warm, inviting, totally bespoke home from which to explore all that this marvellous area has to offer.
If you enjoy walking, explore our private rainforest trail right on your doorstep.
Or venture further to the Great Ocean walk, the Aire River, the waterfalls or Castle Cove & Johanna Beaches.
For “foodies” the region boasts locally made wine, chocolate, cheese, beers, cordials plus the clever chefs to plate them up for you!
Or, you can bring all of your provisions & indulge in front of the open fire watching “Nature’s TV” out the window

I am a film & theatre costume designer who loves clothes, style, French champagne, country food and country living. Married to an actor and the mother of a precious little mini schnauzer named "Dusty" We live on a beautiful rambling coastal property on the Great Ocean Road in the south west of Victoria, Australia near the famous Twelve Apostles. As we have built a new house I am happy to welcome guests to the charming mudbrick house that my clever husband built 30 odd years ago. If you are a couple looking for an isolated, off the beaten track experience with stunning ocean views and private forest walks we look forward to having you as our guests.

During your stay
We are usually on the property & always contactable by Phone providing the guests phone has signal. Telstra is the reliable carrier in the bush. Others like Optus, Virgin etc not so reliable.
We do use the back end of the house for cottage linen store & laundry..
On cleaning days we will be in that area but will not impinge on your privacy.
If you are in the spa, just stay there, we won’t be able to see you & will just be in & out to collect service necessities for the cottages.
