Our cute 3 bedroom home is a stand alone house tucked away in a quiet lane, but central to Terrigal beach and village. Most importantly it is on the flat of Terrigal bowl for easy walking! Relax in the 8-person spa or on the spacious decks.
When staying in Terrigal, you want the best of both worlds: centrally located on the flat (as it can be hilly around Terrigal), but also quiet (as some of the streets can be busy). This little home is very central 1 minute walk to the nearest cafe, but feels tucked away as our lane way is hidden and has almost no through traffic. Close to the beach and village action, but still quiet!
We have made contact with some local businesses if you require a surf school or fishing charter. We also have a pair of great massage therapists who will set up their table on the back deck to work their magic. All of these businesses offer a discount to guests of the house.
As well as spending time at the beach, guests are welcome to use the DVD and book library, and boardgames. If the weather isn't great, there is a great old fashioned picture theatre at the next beach along. Erina Fair is a large shopping mall within a 5 min drive, or a smaller grocery market is in Terrigal village. A golf course and tennis courts are all within a short distance.
WiFi is available at the home.
Guests have access to the whole house, except the garage. Walk in robes are locked in two bedrooms for our own storage, but is available for your use in the master room. One kitchen cupboard is locked for our own storage, though the kitchen has all you'll need to prepare meals.
Interaction with Guests
I prefer to welcome guests into the home personally, but then I leave you alone to enjoy your holiday. I can be reached on my mobile in case of emergencies or if you need advice.
Terrigal is famous as an attractive seaside village within short distance of Sydney. As such, it is a popular weekend getaway and is very popular for holiday periods.
There is a bus service from the nearest train station at Gosford, but most people drive to Terrigal.
Other Things to Note
A refundable $1000 deposit is held by AirBNB, but returned within 48 hours, less damages. Fortunately, I've never had to enforce this before!
This is a small home in a quiet residential area. As such, there is a strict maximum of 7 guests. Please also be mindful of neighbours regarding noise late at night. Due to previous issues we are not able to accommodate Schoolies, Uni parties, or bucks/hens weekends. No smoking inside the home. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate pets though there is a pet minding service nearby.
Fantastic house for a weekend away! I went with 6 adults and we had a fantastic time! Andrew's communication with us leading up to and during the stay was fantastic, he was accommodating and welcoming! The front porch is great for BBQs, while the jacuzzi was a nice treat too! Air-conditioning was fantastic in the summer heat too! We managed fine with 6 people and one bathroom, there was also a washing machine for those that stay longer. The kitchen has new amenities and a dishwasher, which was a lifesaver! The house is literally only a few (flat walk) minutes to the beach, shops, restaurants and bars. We loved our long weekend at this home and will definitely be back!
We had a great stay at Andrew's home. The outdoor area is fantastic and we loved relaxing in the spa with an evening drink! The rooms are comfortable and clean with a nice living room and kitchen as well. The location is great for trips to the beach, shops and bowls club. Highly recommend staying here. A great airbnb experience!
We stayed at Andrew's flat over Christmas for 5 nights, and it was a perfect base for exploring Terrigal including the beach and restaurants, which were all a short walk away. The flat was clean and the kitchen and bathroom facilities were new. There were 5 of us plus a baby, and the flat suited us comfortably. We loved dining on the front deck, and relaxing on the back deck in the outdoor furniture or in the spa. Andrew was there to let us in and show us around, and was easily contacted throughout the stay and responded promptly to any queries we had.
Andrew's place was a really great little house in a quiet area and really close to everything - shops, beach. The house is small-ish for 6 adults but still very comfy and has everything you need! The big deck and balconies were great to lounge on. Had a lovely time and would definitely return!
Andrew is a fantastic host. He met us in person and guided around the house and its facilities. He was most helpful about unanticipated requests (where could we safely store or bicycles).
The house is smallish but great the atmosphere is delightful. The facilities are good quality and in good condition. All in all a property I am certainly considering for a return visit.
Having breakfast on the sunny front terrace at Andrew's place was just so relaxing. It's perched on the hillside amongst the trees and many birds, yet the shops and everything you may need are just a few minutes walk down the road. We loved using the hot tub and the loungers within the private rear garden. Also Andrew is just a really nice guy. He went out of his way to ensure we had everything we needed for our stay. Highly recommend.
