Additional Information

At maximum capacity it sleeps up to five adults and 3 smaller children but we would advise a max of 6 for comfort..
It has 2 double beds that expand outside the caravan but have a heavy canvas enclosure so feel very secure. They can be unzipped on all sides leaving fly mesh, so a wonderful opportunity to see the stars. A hard shell covers each bed end. They have sprung mattresses in excellent condition.
It has a bunk bed. The lower bunk is suitable for any person up to 6 foot. The top bunk is suitable for a smaller child due to weight restriction.
The table can fold down into a further bed for two small children.
We can provide a double deluxe swag and 2 single swags (2018 as new) at an extra cost should you require more sleeping options.
We can provide complimentary bedding (duvet covers, sheets, pillow cases). All would be cleanly laundered. Or you may choose to bring your own.

We holiday with a teenager who prefers to sleep outside in his swag but use the van facilities in the daytime.

Dog owners -
Dogs are not allowed in the van but I also offer a service to look after your pooch whilst you are in our area. $20 per night inc quality food, comfy bedding, lots of attention, access to a big enclosed rear yard and a big walk. So you can enjoy your holiday whilst I make sure your beloved pet is well looked after. Payment in full required pre stay.

Hiring Rules

Minimum 5 night bookings during peak periods.

Strictly no smoking within the caravan.

Pets are fine by negotiation as long as they are set up under the awning and are not allowed within the van. I also offer a sitting service.

Awning must be closed during high winds and storms.

Towing experience required if towing and 12 point electronic break controller must be fitted to your vehicle.

Caravan not to be taken on four wheel drive only tracks, use graded dirt roads for short distance access only.

No cooking of greasy or smelly food within the van.

We are happy to tow it to one of the lovely caravan parks at Robe subject to the hirer having a confirmed booking and site allocated. It is up to the hirer to inform any caravan park of number of persons using the site. We are happy to set up and meet/greet at an agreed time.

We are happy to tow to private land subject to receiving confirmation from the land owner that permission has been granted. You would need an electricity supply.

This is a modern family owned van and we hope that apart from having a great holiday, you will treat it kindly and help to keep it in great condition. We understand accidents happen though, so just be upfront with us and we will reach an agreed resolution.

Long term hire by negotiation at reduced rates.

Hirer must be 25 years of age or older

Had a lovely stay. The van was clean, spacious and had all the amenities needed. Sandy went out of her way to have kids bed linen, towels, heating and everything else. Next time Ill know not to bring much at all and it was hassle and stress free from being dropped off and set up for us. Kids had a ball and didnt want to leave their van. Thanks Sandy!

I can not speak highly enough about our experience with Sandy. Staying in Robe we took the option of Sandy dropping The Tea Room off at the caravan park. When we turned up everything was set up and Sandy had even gone to the trouble of picking cool 'boy' doona covers for our three boys. She was always prompt with her replies and made some really good recommendations that enhanced our stay in the area.

Thank you Sandy. We hope to see you again in the future.

Fantastic stay in the Tearoom.
Had everything we needed and more.
Sandy could not have been more friendly and helpful and communication was prompt and accurate. Really enjoyed our time in Robe and would thoroughly recommend the Tearoom and Sandy to any family looking for a van and great service.

Brilliant! Highly recommend The Tea Room to anyone thinking of hiring a Van, especially at Robe. Sandy was extremely helpful and nothing was too hard, which made our Xmas getaway even better. We will definitely be using The Tea Room again in the future.

What an amazing caravan, My family of 2 adults and 2 small children had an absolute blast staying in this caravan. Everything is in new condition, with comfortable beds and block out blinds, we were happy that we were only woken up by our kids and not the morning sunlight.

The owners of the tea room are what made our experience absolutely remarkable, they went way beyond expectations to ensure we had everything we needed, supplies were provided for tea, coffee including sugar and fresh milk. An extra warm blanket and cushions, even an extra heater just in case we got cold.

If you are after a fuss free, relaxing weekend away, I can highly recommend booking the tea room.
