WE HATE SAYING NO, BUT THESE ARE A HARD NO FOR GUESTS

These rules are to protect your experience and the beautiful natural surroundings and wildlife.

• No parties or functions.

• No pets. Although the local Bridgetown Kennels are happy to look after your fur baby.

• No motorsport of any kind. We allow off-road bicycle use on our property, but use is at your own risk and in bringing your bikes onto our property, you acknowledge this risk.

• No children under the age of 16

• No extra guests other than booking couple may stay and no visitors to the property.

• No smoking once on the property.

• No playing music loudly for the peace of other guests.

• No hunting or fishing on the property.

• No petting or interaction with grazing sheep or neighbours' cattle.

• No wandering near other tents. Respect other guests' privacy as they respect yours. 

• No high voltage appliances. No hair dryers, straighteners, heaters, etc. If you plug any high-draw appliance in, it may cut power to the tent.

• No using outdoor firepits from December 1st to April 1st because of high fire danger. This time may be extended, but we will advise you before your stay.

DRIVING HERE AND ON THE PROPERTY

Approximately 6.5kms of the drive from Bridgetown to your tent is via a council-maintained gravel road. A 2wd car is fine, but your car will pick up red dust.

• The speed limit on our property is 20km/h as all roads are gravel and can be driven easily with a 2wd vehicle.

• Drive strictly on the internal gravel roads. DO NOT drive onto the grassed areas or damage plants or landscaping. This may cause a bushfire in hot weather because of the heat of the car's exhaust igniting dry grass.

• Cars are to be parked on the parking bay beside the tent and not on the grass. This again is to protect against bushfire and to protect your car.

ADVERSE WEATHER AND WILDLIFE:

We cannot guarantee perfect weather and take no responsibility for adverse effect on your stay due to weather (wind, rain, storms, hail, etc.). It can get windy and the wind noise may disturb your sleep, as well as early morning birds. Please bring earplugs if this may bother you. The tents have light blocking blinds but some light will filter through, so if this will bother you, please bring eye covers.

On the rare occasion, small animals like field mice or a bird or insects like ants or moths might find their way into your tent. Our tents are spotlessly cleaned but when staying in the middle of a forest in a natural environment, this can occur. Please keep fly screens always closed to mitigate this happening. There are insect repellant and personal insect protection in the sink cupboard.

In warmer months, we have a whisper-quiet ceiling fan and Bridgetown is normally cooler than Perth by about five degrees. It's rare to not need blankets even in the middle of summer.

In cooler months, we have a doona and blanket on the bed plus a spare blanket. We also supply a hot water bottle. Each tent has its own wood-fireplace with enough wood for two to three days and an external private firepit. If you use more wood than supplied, you can buy extra from us.

The tent may be colder or warmer than a hotel room. These minor environmental impacts are part of the experience. You are camping in a natural environment, not a stuffy hotel.

LINEN AND TOWELS, BREAKAGES, DAMAGE

For your stay, we supply linen, pillows, blankets, bathrobes and one set of towels (two for more than three+ nights) and most needs for a two to three-night stay. If anything is found missing or damaged after you leave, we must charge your credit card for replacement cost. When you arrive, if you find something damaged or missing, please alert management immediately so we can replace, repair or take note.

DEPARTURE

Please adhere to checkout times for the convenience of other guests. Though small, the tents take between two-and-a-half to three hours to reset because of our high standard of cleaning and presentation.

• Remove all food from fridges. Put all rubbish in bins and please wash crockery, cutlery, and pack away if it’s dry.

• Clean the BBQ if you have used with the products provided.

• Please leave all furniture and furnishings in the position you found them upon arrival.

• Leave the tent secured and locked. Please leave accommodation keys in the lockbox.

.

PROBLEMS OR COMPLAINTS

With any problem or complaint, please let us know at once. We want you to enjoy your stay and if we can rectify immediately, we will. We are not available during the night after 10pm or before 7.30am. Email stay@serenitygully.com.au though and we may receive it. If you feel you are in danger, please call the police on “000”.

EXPERIENCES BOOKED THROUGH Serenity Gully Glamping

We accept no liability and responsibility for activities and experiences sold on behalf of 3rd party suppliers. We will give your email and details to these third-party suppliers in order to organise the services. However, if you are not happy with the experience, please let us know. We want you to be happy with your entire Serenity Gully experience.

We've done everything we can to ensure your experience is comfortable in all conditions, but weather is not within our control.  Our tents and structures are engineered to handle cyclonic wind speeds (which have never occurred in our area), snuggling inside by the fire is just as much a part of the adventure as the bush walks.

Though we have a strict no pets policy at Serenity Gully, we love our own fur baby, so we understand that sometimes it's difficult to get a pet sitter or that Serenity Gully is s a stop on a longer trip.

You can take your pet out if you choose during the day for your day trips and return them overnight. Please contact them directly. They always have available kennels.

15. YOUR OTHER RESPONSIBILITIES

• You must comply with all applicable Rules and all instructions from Management and the caretakers of the Property concerning occupancy, property, health, safety and quiet enjoyment of the Property and our neighbours. This is extremely important during high risk fire days. We may contact you with advice on fire threats, and if we advise you to leave the property for safety reasons, you must quickly pack your belongings and comply immediately. We may, at our discretion, rebook the balance of your stay to compensate you for the disturbance to your visit. Your safety and well being are our highest priority.
• SGG is a couples retreat and is all about privacy and serenity. This is why a maximum of two adults are allowed inside or around each tent and we ask you to respect the quiet enjoyment of other guests during your visit. This is why we've taken great care to site the tents for privacy. So, please do not wander near the other tents. Respect the other guests' privacy as they respect yours. A breach in this condition will result in immediate eviction from the property and additional charges will be levied.
• SGG uses off-grid solar power, so due to this we only allow low voltage appliances (phones, laptops, cameras, and such) to be plugged in to the tent's power sockets. High voltage appliances can damage our system and this is expensive to repair. You may not plug in and use hair dryers, straighteners, heaters, coffee machines, toasters, kettle jugs, electric blankets and anything else which has a high draw heating element. As a rule of thumb, if it generates heat, then it's a no to plug it in. If you have a medical device which requires power, please contact us, and we'll investigate if our accommodation can support you.
• Only the guests nominated and agreed in the Booking may stay in the Property overnight. If any other guests stay, extra charges may apply or the agreement may be terminated without refund.
• Only paying guests are allowed on the property and visitors are not permitted.
• Disturbance to our neighbours, including excessive noise, is prohibited and may result in termination and eviction without refund and extra charges may be made for security and other expenses.
• Before departure, all food must be removed from fridges, all rubbish put in the appropriate rubbish bins provided, and crockery and cutlery washed and packed away. The Property must be left in a clean and tidy condition. If the BBQ has been utilized please ensure it is thoroughly cleaned using the products provided. If the tent is left in an untidy manor a $50 cleaning fee will be charged.
• Please leave all furniture and furnishings in the position you found them upon arrival.
• Please be considerate to the next guests and vacate on time and leave the tent secured and locked. All windows to be zipped closed and doors locked. Replace your key in the lock box.

If we find cigarette butts, we will deduct $100 from your deposit to cover cleaning.
• Cars are to be parked in the parking bay beside the tent and not on the grass.
• The outdoor firepits and internal fireplaces cannot be used from December 1 to March 31st due to high fire danger or on any fire ban days outside these dates.
