Interaction with guests
I do not live on the island when the house is booked, so my cleaner will leave out the keys on the day of your arrival. Once your booking is confirmed I forward a fact sheet, some useful links & some suggestions depending on the demographic of the group. Feel free to contact me prior to your arrival & during your stay for information / assistance.

The house was set at the end of the street backing the rainforest. It was like being in a tree house! Kookaburras and Wallabies came for a visit every morning. The artwork inside the house was lovely. I would love to go back!

About the neighbourhood
Samsara is in Arcadia & the house is in a very quiet residential street which backs on to the National Park & is adjacent to a seasonal creek. Although you are only a 5 minute walk from the bus stop & 12 minutes to the shops, hotel & beach, you feel as though you are in the middle of the park as the neighboring houses are barely visible. It is a central point for the island's bush walks & visited daily by a variety of birds, possums & butterflies. Occasionally an Echidna trundles through the creek bed & the Koala's start to move around at dusk in the trees at the rear of the house.
