House Rules
Pets Allowed: No
Smoking Allowed: Yes

LTR is a casual, tropical paradise.... we want you to feel comfortable and at home.... so not too many rules. Basically RESPECT the place as if it's your own and: * NO loud noise from 11pm - 8am. LTR encourages celebrating life's special occasions... but is NOT a 'party' house as we endeavour to make minimal impact on our environment and the neighbours. * NO smoking in the house. * NO pets
