Interaction with guests
My husband and I live on the property. We are mostly here to greet you and show you around the house. After that we leave you alone but are available if you need anything.
Other things to note
Black Cockatoo House is quite remote. There is only one General Store in Yanakie which has all the essentials and a well stocked bottle shop as well as petrol/diesel. There is also a small cafe section which serves coffee, sandwiches and other goodies. This is about 5 km from Black Cockatoo House. There's also a Bakery open for breakfast & lunch. There are no pubs, restaurants or any other shops in Yanakie. The house is well equipped for cooking, but you need to bring all your ingredients.... So don't forget to stop at the supermarkets enroute.
Yanakie depends and functions on rainwater. If you are unaccustomed to this, we suggest bringing bottled water for drinking.
There is a dam on our property and low voltage electric fences in the surrounding dairy farms. This is a rural property with all the associated hazards and children must be supervised at all times.
There are three blue roof guest cottages on this property in addition to Black Cockatoo House.
- No extra guests, day or night
- Kitchen must be left tidy. All used kitchen items must be cleaned before departure.
Love to cook, love to eat and love to garden. We have a small vegetable patch and are always amazed by its output. I work in the dairy industry which takes me to all corners of the world but its always so good to come back home to Yanakie. Other than that my hubby and I just love pottering about.
