Petra Accommodation Terms & Policies

Petra Accommodation TERMS & CONDITIONS

Petra Chalets are 'Couples Accommodation'
> Each chalet sleeps 2 people in either a Queen or King Bed. [Sorry, there are no 'twin beds'].
> Maximum of 3 people including infants per chalet. Please see the Third Guest/Child/Infant Policy below.

*Petra Accommodation Dog Policy

  • Petra is a 30 acre property with lovely areas for you to walk with your dog, however, please note that there is no fencing on the property, and there are other dogs (like an off-leash park) plus wildlife (kangaroos, ducks, birds, etc which cannot be chased).
  • Petra is dog friendly at a cost of $25 per dog per night (subject to approval by Petra Management).
  • Dogs must be age 1yo+; sterilised/desexed; fully vaccinated; fully house-trained; well socialised; familiar with off-leash parks; have good recall, non-barkers. All of this Dog Information is required to be considered for approval.
  • Attentive supervision of dog/s is required at all times. Dogs are entirely the responsibility of their owners.
  • Bring your own dog bedding, dog towels, dog toilet/waste bags (dispose of in outside green bin).
  • Dogs are not allowed on sofas or beds. Additional cleaning charges will be passed on, if evidence of dogs on lounge/beds/heavy shedding/damage to furniture, flooring, rugs, bed linen.
  • Highly 'vocal' dogs are not possible (sorry), so all guests can enjoy a peaceful stay at Petra. Petra chalets are glass fronted (for guests to enjoy property views), so dogs can see/hear other dogs/people outside.
  • Maximum one dog per chalet usually.
  • Maximum of five dogs in total, across all five chalets at Petra.
  • If you have two dogs, please provide details on the Accommodation Enquiry Form. If we are not able to accommodate two dogs, it is likely because of other (potential) bookings.
  • Dogs cannot be left unattended in the chalet; guests are required to take their dogs with them when they go out.
  • Please keep a close eye on your dog’s toilet habits inside the chalet. We understand s/he may never go to the toilet inside at home, but s/he will obviously be able to smell that other dogs have been there. We do thoroughly clean our chalets of course, but a dog’s nose is much more acute than ours; particularly very young and very old dogs, who are sometimes ‘triggered’ to ‘mark territory’ (or get confused / incontinence in older dogs). Please bring wee mats/crate and roll up the chalet rugs/mats if there’s any risk.
  • Before letting off-leash, please note your dogs' behaviour (especially younger dogs) regarding kangaroos/ducks, especially breeds/dogs that may be more likely to chase/round up (eg. cattle dog/kelpie/border collie/greyhound/whippet). You should only let dogs off-leash if you have ‘good recall’ on them, and they won't chase wildlife (the whole property is unfenced). Having said this, trained/well-behaved dogs are usually better with other dogs if they are off-leash (so the dogs can decide their own hierarchy).
  • Please be mindful of any bushy/reedy areas in warmer months (snakes are possible in the country). We have never had any dogs/humans bitten at Petra (in 20+ years of operation), and much of the property is landscaped for enjoyment/visibility.
  • Tethering (tying up) dogs is not permitted.
  • Unfortunately, we are not able to have unsterilised dogs at Petra for a variety of reasons, our apologies.
  • All dogs need to be approved by Petra Management.
  • Approval depends on dog’s details (honestly) provided, compliance with our Dog Policy, other dogs booked/likely to be booked at Petra.
  • Petra Management try to 'vet' dog bookings carefully to ensure everyone's enjoyment. Petra Management cannot accept liability for dog behaviour (as we rely on the honesty of guests' advice), so please ensure you are comfortable with the environment at Petra and assume liability at your own risk. Petra reserves the right to refuse any dog bookings at our discretion.

We may be able to offer LATE CHECK-OUT or EARLY CHECK-IN at the price of $30 per hour for Standard Rate (up to 2 hours), however we may be unable to confirm this ‘ahead of time’, as it is subject to other bookings/cleans required, and our contract cleaner’s schedule at the time.

Linen & Towels
> The bed and bathroom are made up with fresh (professionally laundered) linen/towels for your stay.
> Please note: we are not a ‘hotel’, so there is no daily cleaning / turn-down service.

Please leave all towels, tea towels & cloths HUNG UP TO DRY (do not leave on the floor or folded up). Mouldy towels will incur extra charges.

Heating/Cooling

> You can set the temperature on the air-conditioner and leave on “auto” (“A” symbol) so it can thermostat during the night. Instructions are in your chalet.
To help us manage costs and keep rates attractive: please use air-conditioner sensibly; don't leave it on when you're out. It only takes minutes to work. Extra Charges will apply if Air-Con Unit if left ON when you leave.
> We try to change the bed duvet according to the seasons.
> One extra lightweight blanket is also provided.
> Please bring an extra blanket in winter if you are concerned.

Water Wise Usage
Petra Estate is a Rural Property that uses/has Rainwater Tanks, Septic Tanks, Leach Drains, Limited Hot Water Storage. ‘Mains Water’ is not available in our locality.
> Enjoy showering in fresh rainwater but please use water wisely to ensure all guests can enjoy a hot shower.
> Please don't flush feminine products/paper towel as this causes significant plumbing problems
including system back up/flooding/plumber expenses.
> Ensure toilet is not left running after flush (lightly press toilet button again when necessary)
> Ensure all taps are turned off, including outdoor hose taps if you use them.
> Petra Rainwater is safe to drink as our rainwater tanks are maintained with filters and water clarifiers.

Cleaning, Breakages or Damage
> The cost of basic cleaning is included* however please note that additional cleaning charges may be incurred if cleaning in excess of the normal level of cleaning is required.
> Please report any breakages or damage that occur during your stay > to report: please email contact@petraoliveoil.com.au (with photos).
> Breakage/damage may be charged for, and will certainly be charged for if not reported.
> Any cost incurred to Petra as a result of significant damage causing costly/time-consuming repairs/replacements, and additional loss of subsequent bookings (and revenue), will incur further costs that we would be obliged to pass on.
> Please help us keep our accommodation rates and charges to a minimum, and ensure the next guests can enjoy the same experience at Petra as you, by leaving your chalet as clean as possible.

*End of Stay CLEANING SURCHARGE > Currently $60 King Chalet; $50 Queen Chalet.
This 'per-stay charge' (not per night) currently applies to all bookings – it may (rarely) be more in peak periods. We have had to implement this surcharge since Covid / Subsequent & Ongoing Labour Shortage in our region which means Petra Cleaning Costs have increased significantly in recent times. We are absorbing most of this cost, but we need to pass some of the cost. We hope you understand. Petra reserves the right to pass on additional cleaning charges later at any time (due to current conditions, or when guests leave chalets are left in 'above normal' state of 'unclean'). Future charges may vary, and cannot be confirmed ahead of time. Note: we have hardly ever charged more than this current cleaning surcharge, as it always our intention to offer the best value to our lovely guests. Please leave your chalet as clean as you can, to help us keep costs down and keep rates & charges attractive. Please help support our efforts by SHOPPING ONLINE for our amazing PETRA PRODUCTS! 

WIFI
> There is no wifi available (sorry), however personal hotspot/mobile broadband works well at Petra.

No Fires/No Smoking permitted
> Never throw cigarette butts or light fires anywhere (even in winter) > bushfire hazard!

> Please note that ‘non-staying visitors’ are not permitted to stay on site overnight under any circumstances. Petra reserves the right to pass on any additional costs.
