Please DO NOT respond to any mobile texts that you may have received from the main office if you need after hours assistance, as this will go to our computer which is unmanned and your emergency message will not be received until the morning.
Check Out Time
Check out time is 10am. You may request a later check-out in advance with Reception but this is strictly subject to availability. We appreciate your understanding with our need to fully service our rooms in time for arriving guests. If you are departing before Reception opens at 8:30am please leave your key in our Key Box located at the outside wall of reception (pool side).
Please do not smoke inside. All rooms are strictly non-smoking.
Whilst we respect your right to smoke, we ask that you restrict smoking to your private outdoor area only. Ashtrays have been provided for you under the sink. In the interest of other guests we also ask that you refrain from smoking in the pool area and any other area of the resort. A special cleaning fee of $100 will be charged if a guest has been smoking in the villa.
We have created a special place for people to come and relax which means that we expect all guests to consider other guests with regard to noise.
Many of our rooms are tented, so this is especially important around those rooms.
All guests have the right to enjoy a peaceful night sleep so we ask that noise is kept inside your villas after 9PM and that the pool area and other common areas are NOT to be used for gatherings after sunset.
No speakers or music is allowed outside of rooms for the benefit of all of our guests. If you wish to gather and enjoy some fun, drinks and music after dark – please head to one of the many bars, restaurants and beach areas Broome has to offer.
With regard to the tents please be mindful of each other with regard to music or TV. Please keep these down at all times.
Free WIFI is available within the resort.

Please keep your room keys safe and on you at all times.
Failure to return your key(s) will result in a locksmith call-out fee of up to $300.00. We must provide complete security for all guests so if you lose your key, we will need to get the lock re-barrelled and change over all spare keys for that room.
To operate the air conditioner please see instructions located in the manuals folder in the bottom kitchen drawer. The air conditioning systems are designed to work most effectively at temperatures between 22 and 24 degrees. In the interest of the environment, we request that all air conditioners be turned off when you leave your villa.
All Villas and Tents have their own BBQ. Turn the gas on at the cylinder then turn the knob to high and press the ignite button; when finished turn all knobs off and turn the gas bottle tap to off.
Barbeques are cleaned and ready for use upon arrival and we appreciate any assistance you can give our housekeepers in keeping the build-up of cooking fats to be removed on your departure to a minimum.
Please don’t use the non stick utensils on the BBQs as they melt.
If you need a new gas cylinder there are full cylinders located in the guest laundry.
If for any reason your stove top does not heat up, the middle power switch next to the fridge may be turned off. Please ensure this is switched on to allow power to the hotplate.
