Welcome to the Terrace
We are very pleased to host you in this wonderful part of the world. If you require anything during your stay, please do not hesitate to contact us on 0403 627 037. Please see a few tips below to assist you during your stay:
We expect our guests to be respectful of our property, furnishings and we simply ask that you leave the space as you find it whilst staying at Tilba Coastal Retreat. All guests must respect the right of any other guests to experience a safe, clean, tidy, relaxing environment throughout their stay. All guests are asked to keep volumes of TV, radio, music and other activities at a reasonable level at all times.
Please drive slowly at all times on the property, as there are animals about.
To connect to the free Wi-Fi, please use the following details: Network: TCR Guest Wi-Fi, Password: tilbawifi
NBN Wi-Fi is available on the property, and is generally very good, but can occasionally be affected by weather conditions.
This is a smart TV, so streaming services, such as Netflix, Stan etc. can be accessed through your account if you have one. Please ensure the TV is connected to the wifi via the settings tab. There is also an HDMI cable on a hook behind the TV, which can be used to plug laptops and other devices into. This channel is on “HDMI2”.
Inside Wood Fire
This is a radiant wood burning fire which is extremely hot to the touch, so please take care when in use, and don’t leave anything on top of the fire place. The fire can be used during the colder months from May to October only. As this is a very efficient wood burner, you won’t need a lot of wood to heat the place up. We provide a starter pack of kindling, fire starters, lighter, and a sufficient amount of wood for each night booked – Extra wood is available to purchase for $25 for a basket.
Please contact Greg or Carrie on 0403 627 037 to arrange. This must be paid in cash or bank transfer at the time of request.
To light the fire, position both levers to the right-hand side – the top lever is the vent, to control air flow throughout the duration of the fire, and the bottom lever is the flue, to help disperse excess smoke/exhaust gasses from the fire, when being lit for the first time, or occasionally when a new piece of wood has been put on.
Outside Fire Pit
The fire pit is a seasonal addition to The Terrace suite which can be used during the colder months from May to October. We provide a starter pack of kindling, fire starters, lighter, and a sufficient amount of wood for each night booked. Feel free to collect sticks etc around the property for more kindling if/when required. The fire must be attended/supervised at all times, and must be fully extinguished at the end of the evening or when guests vacate the property. Extreme care is also required when it is windy, and observance of NSW fire bans are essential.
There is a complimentary Sony Bluetooth speaker available upon request – please get in touch should you require it throughout your stay.
To listen to music from your device, ensure Bluetooth is active on your device to search for the Sony speaker (SRS-XB20), hold down the “Power/on” button on the speaker to connect. Alternatively, use the audio cable supplied with the speaker, to connect to your device.
Please ensure the umbrella is put down at the end of each day. Please do not use when windy as it may get damaged with the strong winds we experience here in Tilba.
BBQ utensils are provided in the kitchen drawers/or in the BBQ cabinet. Gas bottle must be turned off and the BBQ cleaned to the standard it was found in, after each use. If the gas bottle runs out, please contact us for a replacement bottle.
Tank Water and Spetic
There is filtered tank water for drinking, cooking, coffee/tea making, washing up, and showers. Please note, the water is clean, but may have a slight discolouration to it. As we have a limited supply of tank water, please be mindful of water consumption for showers etc.
To help keep our septic functional, scrape all food scraps into the rubbish bin before washing up. Do not dispose of any items other than toilet paper in the toilets.
We have a Rinnai - Gas Continuous Hot Water System installed, but if you ever experience no hot water, it just means the gas bottle is empty, please get in touch for us to change it over immediately.
TCR has areas of steep slopes, large trees, dams and holes. Guests are urged to take precautions when walking around the grounds and to use one of the torches provided if out and about on the property at night.
There are electric and barbed wire fences surrounding the property, to prevent shocks, please do not touch any fence wires.
Please be careful of falling branches from trees after we have had rain/wind.
There is also a risk of snakes, ticks, spiders and other insects.
First aid kits are provided in each room.
Mosquitoes are present in warmer months. Prevent insects and wildlife entering buildings by keeping doors and windows without screens closed and using screens where available. Personal repellent spray is provided in each room.
All grass/lawn areas are deemed common areas, so please feel free to get out and explore the property.
Please note, property maintenance may be carried out between 10am-3pm. This may include tractor and power tool noise for grass mowing and weed trimming etc. There are neighbouring properties to TCR, which are working farms - there may be noise from those properties, such as farm equipment/machinery/motorbikes/animals etc. at any given time, which is completely out of our control.
