Property Description

6 3 2
Feel like you are in another world staying at this tranquil, unique oasis. With the serenity & vastness of a rural property, House on the Lake is only a short stroll to fantastic cafes & the centre of Denmark town.

Unlike any other, House on the Lake is a beautiful architecturally designed split level home sitting on a huge fresh water lake, surrounded by a spectacular garden setting.

House on the Lake has 3 spacious bedrooms and two bathrooms all on the top level. All bedrooms have stunning garden views, with the master king bedroom spoilt with its own ensuite, spa overlooking the garden & private deck.

The main house has a maximum capacity of 6 people. An additional 4 people can stay in the Guest House if available, on request. Children must be 12 years old or older. Please refer below under GUEST HOUSE for further details including costs.

The main living area, with its sunken lounge room has the ambience of a luxury retreat with soaring, double height cathedral ceilings with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the magnificent lake. The slow combustion fire provides a cosy setting for those cooler nights with your favourite glass of local red. Reverse cycle air-conditioning also adds to your comfort.

Preparing sumptuous meals in the kitchen or on the BBQ with stunning views and sitting right on the water on the huge deck will further enhance your enjoyment of this unique space. At 4pm be ready for a spectacular show when the lake fountain automatically appears.

The loft area which can be used as an adults retreat or office space is well lit with a skylight & has stunning views from the gable window. WiFi is provided.

Rental Agreement
The rental agreement for booked accommodation becomes effective on receipt of the deposit by the Guest. The rental agreement is between the Owner of the Property for which the accommodation booking is made and the Guest and is subject to the booking terms and conditions herein. The Guest acknowledges that the Booking Agent acts only as a booking agent for the Owner and not as a principal. Southern Coast Escapes is authorised by the owner of the property to let the property to you, the guest during the agreed period advised in the guest’s confirmation.

Confirmation of booked accommodation will only occur once the Guest’s payment for deposit (one night’s tariff) is received.

Final Payment
The full amount payable in respect of the booked accommodation plus Security Bond shall be paid at least thirty (30) days prior to the check-in date of the Guest’s proposed stay. If the full payment has not been received by the Booking Agent within this time, the Booking Agent and the Owner reserve the right to cancel the booking without notice and the Guest will forfeit the Guest’s deposit which will be non-refundable in such circumstances.

Security Bond
A refundable security bond will apply to each booking, the amount of which differs for each property, and is payable with the final payment prior to your stay. This security bond will be held for the duration of your booking until inspection of the Property on your departure. The Guest authorises us to take funds from the security bond to cover the Booking Agent or Property Owner for any costs or expenses, damages or other losses arising from the booking, including extra cleaning if required. Your bond will be processed for refund within seven days of departure generally via the method used to pay the bond.
