Accessibility

Everyone is welcome at Wandha and we want to provide a safe, comfortable and enjoyable experience for guests of all abilities. We’re working to make it as accessible as possible within the constraints of the property’s existing design.

We’re working to make Wandha more accessible for people with disability

Due to the nature of the property and constraints of the original build unfortunately we won’t be able to cater for everyone. However, the house will be suitable for many people of various abilities.

We understand disability comes in many forms. Rather than assume that our property is not suitable for you, we would prefer to ask about your individual needs and provide accurate information so you can make an informed decision.

Below we provide clear, honest and factual information to help you decide whether the property is suitable for you. If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to get in touch so we can discuss in further detail.


Accessible activities in the area

Here are some of our favourite accessible activities to do in the area. Most are advertised are accessible via flat surfaces and accessible with a wheelchair. However, we suggest you call the business or visitor centre before visiting to make sure its appropriate for your needs.

Take a drive through the beautiful Wallingat National Park and up to Whoota Whoota Lookout. Take in the stunning views of Wallis Lake up to Forster. You can park the car at the viewing area and there is a picnic table too.

Enjoy great food at Frothy Coffee Boatshed in Smiths Lake. It has wheelchair accessible parking, entrance, toilet and seating.

Enjoy stunning ocean views from Bennetts Head Lookout with whales passing through between May to November. The lookout is wheelchair accessible.

One of the best things about the house is the enjoyment that can be had on the expansive back deck. Take in the bush views, spot some wildlife, read a book, do a puzzle. The deck is wheelchair accessible via two doors.

Grab lunch on the lawn at The Recky in Elizabeth Beach. Dogs aren’t allowed inside but there is plenty of seating on the lawn and its located on the shores of Wallis Lake so your dog can cool off in the water.

This picnic area is in John De Bert Reserve on the shores of Smiths Lake. The reserve offers a boat ramp, toilets, BBQ and picnic facilities as well as a playground. 


Accessibility Around The House

Below we provide clear, honest and factual information to help you decide whether the property is suitable for you.  If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to get in touch so we can discuss in further detail.

Car Parking

From the driveway, the house is accessible via a flat 800mm-wide gravel and concrete tile path, about 15 metres long. There are no stairs from the pathway to the front deck, however there is a 15cm gap from the path to the deck. Guests can choose to park in the driveway which is more than 2.4m wide or in the carport where the spaces are at least 2.4m wide.

Entry

There are two front doors from the front deck that can be used to access different parts of the house. One with access to the main bedroom and the other with access to the kitchen. Both sections of the house are connected by an 860mm hallway (800mm wide at its most narrow) that houses a bathroom and separate toilet.

Bathrooms

Unfortunately, the bathrooms were not built with accessibility in mind. Whilst the rooms are level to enter, there is a bathtub in one and a shower with a lip and basin in the other. A mobility chair however could be placed in the shower. Both toilets are level to enter with no steps and 800mm wide entrances however there are no grab rails.

Bedrooms

There are two bedrooms on the entry level. The main bedroom is accessible by wheelchair from the front entrance and accessible to the back deck via sliding doors. The twin bedroom is also wheelchair accessible.

The Loft Bedroom is only accessible via stairs however this is often used as the secondary bedroom.

Sensory

There are no odours or synthetic smells in the house. There may be the smell of eucalyptus oil and lavender oil as well as burnt wood from the fireplace.

Natural textures and calming colours have been used throughout. Our bed sheets are 100% bamboo cotton and the bed covers on the king and queen are linen.

Flooring

All flooring throughout the house is timber except for the bathrooms and bathroom hallway which are tiles. Both front and back deck is timber decking. 

Outdoors

There are no paths around the gardens, its all grass. However the grass is mown regularly and kept short. The soil is clay and can be soggy in parts when its been raining. The driveway from the gate to the house is gravel. 

Layout & Doorways

Most areas of the house are on the ground floor and easily accessible with a wheelchair. All doors and walkways are at least 800mm wide and there are no steps in the house other than the stairs leading to the loft bedroom.
