  • Please pay the balance of the rental amount 7 days before arrival (if you pay by credit card, it will be deducted automatically), otherwise your booking may be forfeited
  • If your booking does not require beds in all of the bedrooms of the house, we may block off the unused bedrooms to reduce the cleaning / servicing load
  • Please keep to the agreed check in and check out times otherwise there may be additional charges
  • Variations can be agreed upon but only if we agree in writing.

A little more detail:

If you require a cancellation, any money paid is not refundable, unless we can re-let the house for the entire period. If a refund is made (due to the property being re-let) we will deduct a $100 cancellation fee.

We will make every effort to ensure the property is available as booked. However, we reserve the right to make alterations to bookings due to unforeseen circumstances.

Barring unforeseen circumstances, we expect you to keep to agreed check in and check out times (+/- 15 minutes). We live some drive away. We reserve the right to withhold money from your bond if we are kept waiting over 15 minutes.

The number of guests should not exceed the number agreed in writing. We reserve the right to charge for excess guests not agreed with the owners in advance.

Parties and functions are strictly prohibited. The price charged is for domestic use only and not commercial. This rate does not allow for the extra wear associated with functions in terms of cleaning, garbage removal, wear and tear, repairs etc. Use contrary to this may result in loss of your bond and/or additional payments.

Smoking is strictly prohibited, due to the constant risk of bushfire. We may deduct extra charges from your bond should cigarette-related litter or any cigarette-related wear and tear be detected in and around Galwiji Homestead.

Damage, breakages, theft and loss are your responsibility during your stay.

The property should be left in the same state as its condition on arrival. Check-out time is 10 a.m. (unless otherwise agreed upon in advance), to allow time to prepare property for next guests.

We take no responsibility for any loss to your personal property.

We hope you enjoy your stay at Galwiji Homestead.

  • Only good things to say about our stay here. The Pryors’ place is exactly as it’s described – a real farm homestead. Surrounded by nature, the house is also spacious inside, the place can accommodate large families or group.

  • Overall, it was a ten out of ten experience. The best part was the amount of space, the activities and the utilities provided. The communication before the trip ever started was very professional and friendly.

  • This is a beautiful country homestead that my friends and I stayed for a long weekend. It had everything we wanted or needed and more. Wonderful walks on the property, a cottage garden to explore and the quiet and peace of rural Victoria. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone.
