Unit 8 has a reverse cycle air conditioner with an additional oil heater for warmth, plus a gas heater for those extra chilly nights. We were not aware of a problem with the gas heater until our last guest called while they were staying, we have a workman organised to repair. Unit 8 was scheduled for painting and maintenance which will see all crockery, linens and aesthetics checked and refreshed. The dryer which is coin operated and part of the shared laundry managed by the Strata is unfortunately out of our control, however, I will pass on your comments to the Strata Manager regarding the cost to run. Thank you for your comments, we do appreciate them. For our future guests we live locally and are always only a phone call away to assist with any problems during your stay.
