Whether you are in town for business, pleasure or you just need somewhere to stop to break up a long drive, look no further. This home has a double bed in each bedroom (with up to 4 bedrooms available) and is located in town so you can either walk or drive to the local shops and pubs.

Watch the sunrise while you sit on the front verandah and sip on your morning coffee. Explore Southern Cross during the day and in the evenings you can either make use of the fully equipped kitchen, outdoor bbq or head to one of the 3 pubs in town for dinner and a drink and to meet the locals.

Our guests are our priority and the bedrooms and living area have been recently renovated for your comfort. They are practical and of course - look good. But don't worry, there is still plenty of character in the house!

Note: We are happy to accommodate contractors and teams of workers.

Southern Cross was named after the star constellation that was the guide for the founders. As you roam around town, you will see that all the streets have been named after stars and it really does have that good old country hospitality.

Check in details will not be provided if this hasn't been returned on time and there will be no refund. In short you will forfeit your booking.

Breaches of the Terms and Conditions will result in immediate eviction with loss of security deposit and no refund for remaining nights of the booking.

Events in Town
When there is limited accommodation in town due to major events, the house will be rented on a room by room basis. This means you will have exclusive use of the bedroom you have booked (with a lock so only you are able to access it) and the kitchen, loungeroom and bathroom will be shared areas. In these instances, to book you will need to go to the Quick Book page on our direct website (https://www.shorttermrentalswa.com.au), from the drop down menu find "Southern Cross - Book by Room" (there will be an option for each of the bedrooms available at the time).
Or find the individual listings directly on the Houfy website https://www.houfy.com/ls/shorttermrentalswa

Refundable Damage Deposit
When booking you must provide your full credit card details as this security deposit will be charged to your card 3 days before check in. Upon check out and once the property has been checked, if all is ok the full amount will be refunded to your card. Any damages, missing items, extra guests or excess cleaning required will result in your deposit not being fully refunded.
If your card is declined for some reason, I will attempt to contact you for an alternative card. If I can not contact you or no other card can be provided and therefore the security deposit can not be taken, your booking will be cancelled immediately and no refunds will be given.
