Completely empty and clean out all bathrooms of all toiletries - everything please.
Use a plastic container to hold everything so it packs away neatly. Unused specialty hand soaps etc are always appreciated by guests. We also recommend leaving a first aid kit)
Clothing and Personal Items
Pack away personal items (particularly things of value and that are sentimental). If your property is a temporary rental, please pack away most bedrooms and leave enough space in the BIR and chest of drawers.
If you are leaving items please try and secure it.
Use wardrobe boxes and you can seal off BIR’s with zip ties so that you don’t have to pack everything, If you need to order boxes for deliver please check out www.ringabox.com.au
Take a moment to depersonalize your home. Use your judgment regarding what you would expect if you were arriving in a rental property yourself. Remove and secure all sensitive sentimental items, personal records, medication etc. Guests are likely to open draws to check which ones they can use so please do not leave anything that you do not want to be seen.
Use cable-ties to secure what you do not want to be used or clearly identify which drawers/cupboards should not be used/opened
Children’s Equipment / Pools
Many of our guests are families with young children. As a result, a portable cot and high chair are very useful (if you are unable to source these items please let us know). We recommend leaving children’s toys and games however suggest that you secure expensive games and/or toys that are special to your children.
Safety for Children around swimming pools is critical. Please visit the NSW website on this link for checklists and guidance http://www.swimmingpoolregister.nsw.gov.au/checklists
