Okay2stay members appreciate that being able to stay overnight at host properties is a special opportunity and will reciprocate with considerate behaviour, respecting the work and privacy of the hosts.
• Phone or email ahead to make sure it is ok to stay. Some hosts are seasonal and not open all year (this will be shown in their listing). If your plans change, please notify your host. Host properties are working orchards, vineyards and farms and sometimes it may not be possible for you to stay
• Sorry - no pets, caravans or 5th wheelers.
• Arrive within the business hours shown in the host listing. In some cases there may be gates which are closed after hours.
• Introduce yourself and your fellow travellers on arrival and show the host your printed Okay2stay ID, or display it for them on your smart phone or tablet.
• Check where your host wants you to park. Be considerate and keep a low profile. Hosts do not want to give the impression of being a campground.
• Only use a gas barbeque (no charcoal) and first check with your host that this is OK.
• You are solely responsible for the safety of your party at all times. Always clear it with your host if you want to walk anywhere on the property and keep to any restrictions they may
require. If travelling with children be especially vigilant and keep them away from buildings and equipment.
• Remove all rubbish. Do not use the host's rubbish bins unless specifically given permission.
• Your stay is limited to one night only.
• Remember the basic idea of Okay2stay – it's a WIN WIN! Take the opportunity to purchase some of the delicious wares or exciting experiences your host has to offer.
Failure to comply with common sense rules will damage the Okay2stay programme for everyone and may be grounds for terminating membership.
