Your up and coming stay

Below is some information to help make your holiday as relaxing and enjoyable as possible, and handy info like which driveway to turn into!
What's Supplied
Rusty's Palace is well supplied with all the basics to make your stay easy and comfortable.
All linen is supplied. There's an extra blanket for the bed - if required. Bath towels are supplied plus body and hand wash and a couple of rolls of toilet paper. The kitchen is set up with all crockery, cutlery, wine & champagne glasses, pots & pans, cooking utensils, some cooking oil, salt & pepper, tea/coffee/sugar, a couple of tea-towels and paper towels, foil and cling wrap.
Groceries and Gear
A reminder that Rusty's Palace is a TINY house. Keep this in mind as you pack your bags and buy groceries. There are some drawers and shelving in the bedroom (space under the bed for your bags) and an under-bench fridge in the kitchen. There's plenty of room for relaxing and unwinding!
Locally, Foodworks us just up the road and Coles, Woolies and Aldi's is in Forster.
Coffee Lovers
For those who love their morning coffee, there's a coffee plunger and our coffee machine takes ground coffee NOT pods, so BYO your favourite ground beans and enjoy it relaxing inside, on the deck or wander out to the orchard and enjoy it sitting under the lemon tree!
Check-in is from 2pm.
Liz will be giving you a call on the morning of your check-in just to touch based, then if you could give her a call/text as you pass either Bulahdelah (if coming from the south) or Forster (if coming from the north), then she'll know you're 20-30mins away and will meet you on arrival.
Most reliable directions: use Google Maps! Go to (or add Indigal as your destination) – BUT READ ON…
Google Maps will direct you to OUR NEIGHBOURS driveway!!!
Turn into the driveway at the FLAG POLE with the Aussie flag and the LETTERBOX with ‘INDIGAL’ on the top. Photo of which driveway to choose.
Once through the front gate, drive to the top of the hill - about 800m.*
At the round-about at the top of the hill, turn left and swing into the carpark on the left side of the Tiny House. Photo of Rusty's Entrance.
A detailed description of how to get to Rusty's can be found here.
*Indigal/Rusty's Driveway
Once you turn into our driveway, you'll be driving on a dirt road. The first part of the driveway is shared with our neighbours, who are about 200m up the road. Please look after them by passing slowly to reduce dust and be on the look-out for their cars, dogs and kids.
The second half of the driveway is uphill. Sports cars to motor-homes have used the driveway with ease. For those who are not use to, or not confident with, driving on dirt roads, here is how to do it with ease: as you come to the bottom of the hill, drop down to 2nd gear - automatics could even drop down to 1st gear - then sit on about 20km/hr and you will cruise up the hill with ease. Leaving your car in high gear and 'gunning it' usually just causes you to lose traction and spin your wheels - and damage the road:)
Drop into a lower gear going down the hill as well.

At the End of Your Stay
Check-out is by 11am. Our cleaners will arrive and start work at 11:05am
Before you leave, we do ask you to do a few things. Please wash up and put dishes away. Clean BBQ. Place any used towels on the floor of the bathroom. Close all doors, but no need to lock them (birds and chooks seem to love open doors and empty rooms!)
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email or call Liz on 0414 728 158.
Have a wonderful stay!
