  • Hi, I'm hoping to book Tryover for one night next weekend, 17th-18th April. I'll have my small dog with me. Is that ok? Thanks.
    Hi, thanks for your enquiry. Your dog is welcome too, we just ask that they do not go on the beds or lounges. Hope to see your booking. Cheers. Tim.

Raquel and Tim
This elevated apartment on ground level was built in 2018 using exceptional insulation including double glazing throughout. It is solar passive, meaning it is cool in summer and cozy in winter, so needs minimal heating and cooling. However, electric heating or cooling is available on request. The property has solar panels, a battery power supply, and uses rainwater at all internal sinks, including a filtered tap for drinking water. There are large view windows and there's an outdoor living area just for guests, overlooking the neighbourhood and parts of Lake Albert. There is TV in the queen room, and in the living room. The guest entrance off the visitor car port is not shared. No indoor amenity is shared. The bathroom has a tub type shower base, so can be used for bathing children. There is a bidet spray for use on the toilet. The bathroom floor can be electrically heated. There are two doors leading to outdoor areas from the living room, and one from the queen bedroom. The property is two doors away from a district hospital with Emergency and a private clinic. About 100 meters away is a sports oval with a children's playground, an all hours gymnasium, and five sports clubs.
