It is the guest’s responsibility to inform AVG that pets will be in attendance. If guests fail to declare pets, AVG reserves the right to gain immediate possession of the property with no refund. Strict rules apply to all pet friendly properties, these rules apply to dogs - cats are not permitted under any circumstances :

    • Pets are not permitted to enter the property unattended, wet or dirty.
    • Dogs must NEVER be left inside the accommodation without an owner present - if a dog is left inside unattended instant eviction will apply with no refund.
    • Your information will indicate whether the property is fenced or not. Some dogs are crafty houdini's and some jump like Olympian pole vaulters.  We cannot guarantee that your dog will not outsmart the boundaries so please use your sensibility when leaving the dog alone.
    • Alpine Shire dog policies require a maximum of 2 dogs to be present at any property.  Special permits are required to bring 3 or more dogs to any property within the Alpine Shire.  3 dogs or more residing in a property without a permit may be removed by Alpine Shire Rangers.
    • Pets are STRICTLY prohibited from using beds or furniture. Bedding or mat & equipment is to be provided by owners.

    • Dogs are not to be washed inside the property in baths or showers.
    • Please do not wash dog blankets in the properties machine.  We are pretty sure the next guests will not appreciate your dogs hair in the cycle with their babies clothes.  
    • If your dog is a shedder, please use sensibility and keep them off areas where hair will be an issue or please clean up their hair before you leave.  Please try at all times to limit your dogs access to tiled or floored areas whenever possible.
    • Owners are responsible for removing any mess in gardens upon vacating the property.  Please respect our housekeepers & future guests by cleaning up your dogs mess - no-one else should have to and I'm sure you agree.

    • Failure to comply with regulations could incur additional charges and may result in eviction from the property with no refund
    • Some dog friendly properties are fenced, some are unfenced.  It is 100% the guest's responsibility to determine whether the property will be suitable for the needs of their particular breed.  Some small dogs and dogs that jump/escape may not be secure at any properties, even those considered fully fenced - it is assumed that all dogs travelling with owners will be well behaved and will not attempt to leave the property.  Again, the onus of responsibility lies with the owner to enquire about the needs of their dog.

8. It is the guest’s responsibility to determine whether bedding & linen will be supplied with their accommodation based on information contained in the confirmation information.  Please allow at least 5 days notice if you would like AVG to provide linen at your property.  

Both the property itself and the location were outstanding. Nestled in amongst a private bushland setting with beautiful views, the stay at Manna Gum far exceeded our expectations. The standard of the accommodation was second to none for value and was very tastefully furnished/decorated. I was thoroughly impressed by the quality of utilies (kitchen/linen) that were made available for guests as well. This was another very pleasant surprise that made our stay that much more enjoyable.Communication from the owner/s was both prompt and very helpful and assisted in making our stay at Manna Gum a very memorable experience.I would hope that we will be able to repeat the experience multiple times in the not too distant future!5/5 by ,
We loved it! Beautifully furnished and equipped cottage in lovely surroundings. Welcomed with champagne, chocolates and fresh milk. We can highly recommend Manna Gum Cottage. Neville and Yvonne5/5 by ,
What a wonderful piece of paradise, hidden away within walking distance of both Porepunka and Bright. The fact we keep coming back to place, speaks for itself.5/5 by ,
Mana Gum was with out doubt the perfect place to stay. It offered great views from the bedroom, lounge and dining areas, the fire place was wonderful on the chilly winter nights and the decking was perfect for viewing the wildlife around the cottage of a morning. It was the little touches like chocolates at the front door, a bottle of wine (and even a carton of milk) in the fridge on arrival that made the stay even better. We will certainly be back next snow season.5/5 by ,
Excellent accommodation, very cosy with the fire and great kitchen for cooking.Very relaxing spot and just great to kick back. Good walks amongst the trees.Only thing is that maybe you should warn guests that there is no television reception. No, you don't need/miss it but we did spend some time trying to get a football score.5/5 by ,
