You then have a choice between walking through the door into the garage area and following the same path to ilanga as you would in a car, or walking up the stairs.
Walking through the garage is very useful if you have a shopping trolley or, for example, bicycles or other heavy items that you want to store in the storage cage. You also avoid the stairs.
If you use the stairs, proceed through the glass door and follow the path up a second flight of steps and then turn right towards the foyer. Use your security fob to get through the glass doors and then proceed to the elevator

5. Whoops !!!
Accidents happen. The most important thing to do is you have a spill is not to panic. Stains from spills, particularly, can almost always be removed completely if you do the right thing after the spill.
If it happens to you, simply place a wet white towel or cloth over the spill and call or sms Dave at Nu Look Cleaning, Nelson Bay. His number is 0411 861 137. He will advise you on what to do next and will arrange to pop over and do a professional stain removal if necessary.
Alternatively, please call the Cote D'Azur reception staff to get some advice.
6. Outdoor lights and power
The outdoor wall spotlights can be turned on from the switch above the little black table in the living area and from the switch in bedroom two
The BBQ lights as well as the lights under the shade sails can be switched on from the right side of the BBQ cabinet
There are also a couple of power points available there too
Use the BBQ with pleasure.
- Please do not let the BBQ heat up to a temperature greater than 250 degrees with the hood closed or serious damage can be done to the BBQ. As the temperature nears 250 degrees, turn down and/or turn off one or more of the burners.
- Please clean the BBQ after use. There is a full cleaning kit in one of the cupboards under the BBQ. To assist in the cleaning process, we suggest turning all burners on HIGH with the lid open for 5 minutes. Then turn the burners off and wait another 5 minutes before using the steel brush provided in the cleaning kit to clean the grills
- Please put the cover back on the BBQ after use
- Please inform the Cote D'Azur reception staff if the gas canister runs empty. There is always a spare one either in the cabinet under the BBQ or in the storage cage near your car spot.
For more information on how to use the BBQ, please see here
There is also an electronic “ThermoPro” remote food thermometer in the kitchen cupboard next to the oven for your use
You can use this handy device to help you cook the perfect piece of meat, poultry or fish
Instructions on how to use can be found here
8. Outdoor cushions
Please put the outdoor cushions back in the storage box after use. Especially if rain or high wind is forecast or expected. This will keep them in the best possible condition for the next guest. Never store them away in the box if they are already wet. Rather bring them into the apartment and let them dry out on the tiled floors or leave them in the sun to dry with the zip open. Your help with this is really appreciated.
9. Appliances in the apartment
Detailed as well as summary instructions on how to use all the appliances at ilanga can be found here
You will also notice that many appliances have a "QR Code" attached to them
If you have a newer model mobile phone, you can simply scan this code by opening your camera app and pointing it at the code. You will usually get a little pop up alert asking you to confirm you want to proceed to the site. Once you confirm, the relevant web page will open for you
Garbage can be disposed of in the garbage room just next to the car spaces on level 1
