Top Tier is the upstairs level of an Esplanade property, situated right across the road from a 24 hour off-leash dog beach. Sleeping up to 8 people, Top Tier has been thoughtfully appointed so all you have to do is relax.
The top level is a full house set up. Features include a BBQ and dining suite on the front deck, boasting ocean views. Bi-fold doors, screens and fans allow you to enjoy the sea breeze inside the house.
There is a full HD LED Smart TV, Foxtel, Blu Ray player with heaps of movies, small stereo, books and games. An additional TV is available if the Second Queen room is booked. The very spacious air-conditioned Master suite has a walk-in robe and ensuite with vanity, toilet, shower and hairdryer. The family bathroom features a spa bath, separate shower, toilet and vanity. Hand soap, shower gel, shampoo and conditioner are supplied. The self-catering kitchen includes Bosch dishwasher and oven, microwave, bottom-mount fridge/freezer, Corelle dinnerware, pots and pans, utensils, glasses, plastics, jug, toaster, and starter pack of tea, coffee, sugar, uht milk, washing detergent and dishwashing powder. All bedrooms have ceiling fans and both the 3 bed Single room and the 2nd Queen room have new air conditioners. For your laundry needs we have a washing machine, dryer, clothesline, iron, ironing board and starter pack of clothes detergent. There is a big couch to snuggle up on, a 6 seater dining table and 3 seater breakfast bar. There is a portacot and high chair for no extra charge. There are dog bowls and 2 dog beds upstairs in the laundry (please bring your pet's soft bedding and old towels). There is a small yard for washing and drying off after the beach. It is fully fenced with a 6 foot high wooden fence, and there is a mesh dog bed under the stairs if your dog prefers to sleep outside.
Guests can access the whole top floor (except the back deck), a fenced side yard and the front yard. Base rate is for 1-5 people and gives you access to 3 bedrooms (we will decide the best configuration with you). 7-8 people will give you access to all 4 bedrooms, at an extra charge of $20 per person per night. There is parking for one standard-height (up to 1.9m) vehicle under the house. It is under cover but not locked. Additional vehicles may be parked in the driveway, or in the side yard around the corner in New Street.
Interaction with guests
As your hosts, we live in a sound-proofed studio on the ground floor. We have separate access, parking, hot water and yard space. We are available to assist you anytime, but will always respect your privacy. Interaction with us is at whatever level you choose. Please be considerate of our neighbours by restricting noise levels particularly between the hours of 9pm and 6am.
We love the Esplanade - so much energy, diverse businesses and activities, and such beautiful beaches! Boutique shops, cafes, a shopping centre, markets, fast food outlets and restaurants are all close by. The 14km of Esplanade walkway can be enjoyed on foot, or scooters and bikes. It has picnic areas, BBQ's, playgrounds and public amenities dotted along it, with access to many swimming beaches. We have compiled a compendium including suggested activities and recommended businesses so you can enjoy beautiful Hervey Bay like a local. We will also provide you with a list of dog-friendly cafes so your fur baby can really enjoy a family getaway with you!
There is a bus stop nearby. Bikes, scooters and other vehicles are available for hire through businesses. Most shopping centres and the CBD are within a 10 minute drive.
