Beautiful This place is absolutely beautiful... It's not 5 star hotel with room service style, but that's part of what makes it so amazing. With only a few bungalows, each facing out to a plain, provides absolute privacy... > more

  Welcome to azjure studio retreat          

q. What does "azjure" mean?
a. azjure means "endless blue sky", and was inspired by the beautiful skies here.

  q. When is the fireplace in the studios available for use?
a. Due to their exceptional use of passive solar design principles, the studios stay cool in summer and warm in winter.  To minimise azjure's carbon footprint, and in line with our commitment to environmental sustainability, the fireplaces in the studios are therefore available for use from May to August only.

q. We don't know the Granite Belt very well - what is there to see and do?
a. There is so much to see and do - the Compendium in your studio contains information to help you plan the perfect stay.


q. Is azjure close to the wineries and restaurants?
a. Absolutely. Four of the Granite Belt's top wineries are within easy walking distance, and several others are within a few minutes drive. The Granite Belt's three top restaurants (Shiraz, Vineyard Cafe & The Barrel Room Cafe) and the region's best tavern are all just 2 minutes down the road from azjure.  


q. Do you provide meals?
As azjure is a fully self-contained property, not a B&B, we don't provide meals.  The studios and Vila have fully equipped kitchens if you would like to cook for yourself, and there are two supermarkets in Stanthorpe and the General Store in Ballandean if you need to purchase supplies.  As mentioned above, the best restaurants and tavern are close to azjure, and there are many other cafés and restaurants around the Granite Belt for lunches.


q. Do you cater for children?
a. azjure has been set up with high quality equipment and furnishings to accommodate just one adult couple in each studio and two adult couples in the villa. Thus the property is not suitable for children.


q. Is there mobile phone reception and Internet access at azjure?
a. azjure is in the mobile phone coverage areas for the major networks: Telstra, Vodafone, Optus and 3. For access to the Internet using a Smartphone or wireless broadband stick, azjure is in the Telstra NextG coverage area, the Vodafone 3G 900 coverage area, and the Optus Dual Band area.  Please note that Optus Dual Band is not the same as Optus 3G.


q. Isn't it important to stay in or close to the town of Stanthorpe?
a. Not at all - the best wineries and restaurants are actually in Ballandean, where azjure is located.   Most azjure guests find the only reason to visit the town is for groceries.  If they do need to go into the town, Ballandean is only 15 minutes south of Stanthorpe..


q. What is your cancellation policy?
a. All payments are non-refundable. You may transfer your reservation once only within a 6 month period from the date of cancellation provided that you give notice more than 14 days in advance of your arrival.  Additional may be payable depending on the rates applying to the new dates.


q. How much deposit is required?
a. We require 50% deposit via Visa or Mastercard at time of booking.  The remaining 50% is payable 14 days before the arrival date.


q. Are there laundry facilities?
a. Each studio has its own individual laundry complete with washing machine, sink, clothes rack, iron and ironing board.  The villa has a fully equipped laundry with external clothesline.


q. How serious are you about non-smoking inside?
a. Very. We have provided facilities for smokers on the patio outside of each studio and the villa. Should prospective guests wish to smoke inside, azjure is not suitable for them. Our Terms and Conditions on check in state that guests who do smoke inside will be charged a $500 cleaning fee.


q. How will you confirm my reservation?
a. We confirm all reservations by email on the day we receive the deposit.

  q. Are pets allowed?
a. Because of the constant presence of native wildlife at azjure, pets are strictly not permitted.
