Frequently Asked Questions

What deposit do you need, and what if we cancel?

Bookings are confirmed with a $210 deposit.  This is fully refunded in the event of a cancellation with more than one month notice, or in the event of the vacancy being subsequently filled.

What are the payment options?
Groups tend to pay by cash at the time of their visit, or pay be Electronic Funds Transfer just prior to or following their visit.  This allows the payment to be tailored to the number of people who actually turn up and saves the organiser worrying over the possibility of someone pulling out at late notice.   EFTPOS facilities are no longer available.
Do we need to book the whole facility?
Yes, the facility is let out only to a single group, so it is not possible to get a single room, for example.
What are the check-in/check-out times?
As a minimum, you can plan to arrive at midday and depart by 2pm (bedrooms relinquished at 10am, but retain access to the common room, kitchen etc.).  However, often we do not need to clean on the day of arrival or departure, in which case groups are allowed to arrive as early or depart as late as they like, but require prior arrangement to support planning of cleaning times.
Can we get our meals catered?

Yes. Although we don’t get directly involved, there are local caterers who are familiar with looking after the meal requirements of our groups.  We recommend Wild Thyme Gourmet – contact Polly Campbell 0428 448 466, wildthymegourmet@hotmail.com, https://www.facebook.com/wildthymegourmet20/ 

Can we self cater?
Yes, the kitchen is fully equipped to be able to cater for yourselves.  As a general principle, you can expect the kitchen to have everything you need with the exception of specialised bench-top electrical appliances, such as food processors, espresso machines etc.
What is the bedding configuration?
There are six twin-bedrooms (two long-single beds) and two triple-bedrooms (three long-single beds).  The two triple-bedrooms each have the disabled access ensuites.  We don’t have the linen supplies to be able to join two long-singles into a king-size bed.
What audio visual facilities do you have?
There is a 60” television (receiving free-to-air satellite TV), DVD/CD player and stereo.
What heating and cooling does the building have?

The building has been constructed according to many passive solar design principles and, with some active management, remains comfortable throughout the year.  In summer, air-conditioning is not required if the building is kept closed during the day and left open during the night (to let the internal rammed earth walls cool down and keep the building cool the following day).  An air-conditioner is provided in the common room for occasions that warrant extra cooling.  In winter, the north facing windows allow sun into the common room to heat up the polished concrete floor and rammed earth walls, and there is also a wood heater (wood provided).  The bedrooms do not have any heating or cooling, just ceiling fans. The rammed earth internal walls moderate the temperature and they remain comfortable for sleeping all year round.

Do you get mobile phone reception?

Yes, there is a Telstra and Optus mobile service in Dwellingup.  We have installed a booster that gives very good service on the Telstra 4G network.  Service on the Optus network is intermittent inside the building, but there is a reliable signal outside in an exposed location.

Is there a WiFi service?

Yes, there’s currently a Starlink (satellite) WiFi service.

Do you allow dogs?
No, sorry, we are committed to maintaining our facility at a very high standard.  We are dog lovers and acknowledge that some dogs won’t cause any problems, but it is our experience that this is very difficult to administer effectively and fairly.
