**Staying in The Bach ... Be prepared to stay a while as we prefer stays of 3 days or more and ask that guests manage their own rubbish removal and recycling, clean up after themselves, vacuum the floors, strip all beds that are used and generally leave it clean and tidy like you would a holiday home. This means we can keep the price affordable and its easy to have it ready for the next group that arrive, we like our cabins to be scrupulously Clean and Tidy for guests to stay in. Stays of only one night incur an extra fee of $5 per person.

Please note an extra cleaning fee of $50 applies if the Bach is NOT left clean and tidy.
