LINEN OPTION - queensize sheets, pillowslips & towels -You can bring your own (BYO) or hire for nz$35 total for two for stay - pillows & duvet etc provided. The Homeaway cost sheet will show the linen fee so if you would prefer to BYO & avoid the linen fee PLEASE STATE THIS ON YOUR BOOKING APPLICATION - WE WILL THEN DELETE THE LINEN CHARGE. Many Kiwis prefer to BYO linen - it also assists water conservation as in Russell we all provide our own fresh water by rain off the roof to on site storage tanks then via a double filter system to the cottage (no chemicals). We understand our Overseas guests will generally require linen to be provided.
