the little things you'll need to know
Our tents are not set up permanently. We book a camp site for you & set it all up for your arrival so everything in your tent is transported to the caravan park.
You will be staying at a caravan park that has bathrooms, toilets & hot showers.
They are shared with other guests in the park & are very well maintained, clean & tidy.
We use comfortable Intex air mattresses that include a built in electric pump at the back of the bed.
They are subject to temperature changes & occasionally need to be plugged in & more air added.
We will replace anytime day or night should you have any issues.
Heaters & Hotties
Your tent comes with an electric heater which heats the tent up quite quickly so you'll be cosy inside.
We also provide hot water bottles hotties (on the colder nights).
Your tent will includes a small fan during summer months & hot days.
Meals & Cooking
Your tent includes a kettle (with tea, coffee, milk & sugar) & toaster as well as plates, cutlery, glassware.
A guest camp kitchen is available for you to use & includes barbecue hot plates, cook tops & microwave.
If you plan to cook please request a fry pan or cooking pot.
There are great restaurants & cafes within walking distance to your tent & also supermarkets in town.
Upon check in at Cowes Foreshore Tourist Park you will be given a wifi code. But we like to think you won't need your phone as you'll be having too much fun reconnecting with each other & nature ;-)

Your fur baby is most welcome too! We request that you bring along a dog bed & beach towels.
Cowes Foreshore Tourist Park will allow dogs on site & you must notify us at time of booking.
Should additional cleaning of linen, blankets & rugs be required we will notify you on departure & you will be charged $30. We know dogs love sand & water so please keep them off the beds & blankets all times.

Caravan Parks can be very social places! You will have neighbours from all parts of the world & they are usually always friendly! It is always considered polite to say hello but feel free to keep to yourselves as much as you like.
You will be outdoors & weather plays a big part in the whole experience - both good & bad!
Weather is different to Melbourne & changes daily. We watch it very carefully!
Some sites are subject to high winds & we reserve the right to move you to a more sheltered site should it be required.
We reserve the right to cancel or reschedule bookings due to extreme weather such as very heavy rainfall, high winds (will depend on wind direction & tent location) & extreme fire danger.
