Hunter Valley cattle country - 40 acres, 4 min drive from Dungog. During Covid19 time the property is left vacant for at least 2 nights before you arrive for cleaning and good separation. IGA delivers if you wish. Amazing silence, morning birdlife, splendid sunsets. The property has three dams. The Ridge shares the home paddock with a shedhouse, 20m up the hill, also occupied, so please give them privacy as they should you. A 1.5 acre dingo-proof home-paddock is safe for kids and pets.

Ο χώρος
This house is available because we were away travelling, but have come back unexpectedly early and we are now domiciled in the shed-house up the hill. Architect-designed, built for country living in the fashion of early colonial dwellings (big encircling verandah, extra fly roof over the house roof for coolness in summer) the house is really just one large room living/dining/kitchen all interconnecting, with two small studies and two bedrooms. Main bedroom has a queen bed and an ensuite bathroom. The second bedroom has two single beds which can be configured as a king bed if you prefer. (PLEASE LET US KNOW WHEN BOOKING.) Those in this second bedroom use the main bathroom, which is also a laundry. The verandah space is actually slightly larger than the house, and the north, west and eastern verandahs all have furniture for eating or relaxing, dependent on the weather. The floors are all polished concrete inside the house and slubbed concrete on the verandahs.
Because of the air-convection designed construction of the house, in the extremes of the seasons there is usually a 10 degree difference between inside and out, summer and winter.
However it is air-conditioned for summer and has a pot-bellied stove for winter. To have the whole house almost the same temperature, heated by the pot-belly, set the controls on the wall in the western study to 'FANS' and the warm air will be circulated through vents in the walls. Please note touching the pot-bellied stove can burn a small child's fingers, so please be careful.
One important Note to BEWARE of: The house has more than 75% glass walls, doors and windows. We do NOT have any blinds or curtains, except in the ensuite bathroom. As we are situated on 40 acres, only the 'roos can peer in the windows. If you need full darkness to sleep then either bring your eye mask, or maybe this is not the house for you.
Pets: We, and Charlie, our Jack Russell, love animals and they are all welcome. The dog-door is only for small pets, so you'll have to be door-servant to your dog if it's too big to fit. Please don't let them scratch at the flyscreen-doors - they are very weak. There are lots of dog mats around. Accidents will require bleach and vinegar on the polished concrete floor (should be in the kitchen cupboard)

Πρόσβαση επισκεπτών
You will have access to the entire house and verandahs, as well as the surrounding garden, which is enclosed in a dingo-proof fence (once the front gate is closed). If your pets are wanderers or escape artists, we advise keeping the front gate closed.

Άλλα στοιχεία που πρέπει να γνωρίζετε
At this time of Covid19, two nights are the minimum that the house is left vacant between bookings. (Mostly it's more because weekends are popular)

Please be sure to note the lack of blinds or curtains as described above.

We'd like you to know that we adhere to the NSW Fair Trading "Code of Conduct for the Short Term Rental Accommodation Industry". Full details of this are contained in the copy/paste version below, but alternatively you can go to the NSW Fair Trading website for an 'easier to read' version.

Part A: Introduction
Short-term rental accommodation is a long-standing practice throughout New South Wales, most
commonly associated with holiday letting. Many NSW families spend part of their summers in
coastal and regional communities and those communities may depend on seasonal tourism to
provide a regular boost to the local economy.
Short-term rental accommodation does not involve purely commercial accommodation providers
such as hotels, motels and bed and breakfast establishments. It generally involves residential
dwellings that may also be used by the owners for their own accommodation at times.
The advent of online accommodation booking services (booking platforms) has seen a significant
increase in short-term rental accommodation. Booking platforms have made it much easier for
letting agents and hosts to advertise and promote properties and for guests to find suitable shortterm accommodation. In addition, short-term rental accommodation in residential premises is now
not only used for holidays but also for business travel, emergency accommodation and special
events, across a range of premises including free-standing dwellings and apartment buildings in
urban and regional centres.
Despite the economic benefits that can flow to local economies and homeowners using their
property for short-term rental accommodation, there can be amenity impacts on residential
neighbours resulting from inconsiderate or anti-social behaviour by some short-term rental
occupants. It is important to ensure that our laws continue to support local economies while
ensuring residential neighbours can enjoy the amenity of their homes without unreasonable
disturbance. This code of conduct responds to this need by establishing behavioural obligations for
short-term rental accommodation participants.
In recent years, there has been an increasing focus on the regulation of the short-term rental
industry around the world. In June 2018, the NSW Government announced that there would be a
new regulatory framework to manage short-term rental accommodation. The key elements of the
framework are:
• a state-wide planning framework to achieve consistency and certainty across local planning
controls
• a code of conduct to apply to online accommodation platforms, letting agents, facilitators,
hosts and guests
• changes to strata laws to allow owners corporations to adopt by-laws that prohibit nonresident lot owners from offering short term rentals
• a mandatory short-term rental accommodation premises register.
This code of conduct is mandatory and applies to all short-term rental accommodation industry
participants.

Any direction the Commissioner issues will be void to the extent it is inconsistent with any
planning laws or by-laws.
If the Commissioner is satisfied that a host or guest has contravened this code, the
Commissioner can record a strike for the following reasons:
(a) there has been a serious contravention of this code, or
(b) the Commissioner is otherwise satisfied that it is appropriate to do so, having
regard to all the circumstances of the case including the number and nature of
previous contraventions.
The Commissioner may take any other disciplinary action the Commissioner considers
appropriate in all the circumstances.
The Commissioner may only take disciplinary action against an industry participant after
affording the industry participant procedural fairness in relation to a complaint.
If the Commissioner decides to take disciplinary action against an industry participant, the
Commissioner must provide a brief statement of reasons to the participant and inform the
participant that they may apply to the Secretary for a review of the decision.
Where an industry participant has been subject to other regulatory action for a breach of
criminal laws, by-laws, or planning laws that is also a contravention of this code, the
Commissioner may only take disciplinary action against that participant for that
contravention if it is necessary to protect the public or this code’s integrity.

4.2 Exclusion register
The Commissioner must keep and administer an exclusion register.
The Commissioner is to make publicly available on the internet a means to search the
exclusion register and is to ensure the register is updated in real time to the extent possible.
The Commissioner may record on the exclusion register either a host, or a host in relation to
particular premises, or a guest.
The Commissioner must record on the exclusion register for five years:
(a) the guest as an excluded guest where the guest has had two strikes recorded
against them in a two-year period
(b) the host in relation to specific premises where the host has had two strikes
recorded against them in a two-year period and the Commissioner considers it
appropriate that the host only be excluded in relation to those premises
(c) the host as an excluded host where a host has had two strikes recorded against
them in a two-year period and the Commissioner considers it appropriate that
the host be excluded from acting as a host in relation to any premises.
The Commissioner must also record a host or a guest on the exclusion register if the
Commissioner is satisfied that:
(a) the person has been charged with a criminal offence and it is in the public
interest to record the person on the exclusion register as an excluded host or
guest until the criminal proceedings are determined, or
(b) the person has been convicted of an offence and it is in the public interest to
record the person on the exclusion register for a specified period or indefinitely.
The exclusion register must record:
(a) for an excluded host or guest—their name and any other of their details that the
Commissioner considers necessary to identify them
(b) for a host excluded in relation to specific premises—the address of the premises
and the name of the host who incurred the strikes with respect to the premises
(c) any other details about an excluded host, guest or premises the Commissioner
considers appropriate.
Before the Commissioner records a host or guest on the exclusion register, the
Commissioner must take reasonable steps to notify the relevant host or guest of:
(a) the Commissioner’s intention to record the host, guest or premises on the
exclusion register and
(b) the period for which the record will remain on the exclusion register.
The Commissioner must promptly remove any false, erroneous or misleading information
about a host, a guest or premises, from the exclusion register.
A premises owner may apply to the Commissioner for the removal of a premises from the
exclusion register. The Commissioner is to remove the premises from the exclusion register
if the Commissioner is satisfied that the owner is not the host against whom the strikes with
respect to the premises were incurred and the host against whom the strikes with respect to
the premises were incurred no longer has any direct or indirect interest in the premises.
23
Despite any other clause of this code, a booking platform, letting agent or host is not
required to cancel any short-term rental accommodation arrangement involving a host or
premises recorded on the exclusion register where:
(a) the arrangement was made before the date (the record date) on which the host
or guest was recorded on the exclusion register, and
(b) the occupancy period starts within one month of the record date.
24
4.3 Secretary review of disciplinary action
Appeals against the Commissioner’s decision to record a guest, host or host’s premises on
the exclusion register are covered in the Regulations.
An industry participant who has received a warning notice, direction, or strike against their
name or in relation to premises may apply to the Secretary for a review of the
Commissioner’s decision.
An industry participant may apply for a review within 21 days of receiving notice of the
disciplinary action from the Commissioner.
The Secretary may determine the form in which a review application must be made.
A review application may include submissions to the Secretary about why the
Commissioner’s decision should be changed or overturned.
The Secretary must decide a review application within 28 days.
The Secretary is to notify the applicant of the Secretary's decision and the reasons for the
decision.
The Secretary may decide to impose alternative or additional disciplinary action on the
applicant as a result of the review.

Alison, Νέα Νότια Ουαλία, Αυστραλία

Dungog is a quaint country town, just an hour from Newcastle or 2.5 hours from Sydney. There are several coffee shops, restaurants and art shops featuring wares from local and other artists and these are starting to open again. IGA delivers and the website is www dot loveys dot com. During the week it is very very quiet. Almost every weekend there is some kind of event in Dungog, but most are cancelled now. Dungog used to be a dairy town and before that was a key timber getting region, but now the rural countryside is mostly devoted to cattle raising.
