  • We have just had a fantastic long weekend at The Drop Off with our 4 month old son.

    The unit is clean, cosy and had everything we needed for a great break..including all the kitchen facilities you require, milk in the fridge and lovely fresh fruit from the garden. I especially loved the chickens in the garden!

    Grant was a great host, and gave us some good local area tips.

    The unit is in a great location, just a small walk into Terrigal and a short drive to lots of other local attractions.

    We had a great time and would highly recommend!!

    Thanks Grant and Paula for having us. Hope to see you again soon!

  • Had a wonderful week at the Drop-off - it's very comfortable and clean making it a real pleasure to stay in. Has private entrance and outdoor seating area and BBQ in a gorgeous garden full of home grown fruits & veggies - an extremely relaxing place to be. The location is ideal-with a view of the sea and a short walk (about 15 minutes stroll) to Terrigal beach and 5 mins walk further on to Terrigal Haven. Plenty of other things to do a short drive away including bush walks in the stunning national park and Avoca beach. It's relaxing for staying in during the evenings if needed with a TV, free wifi etc. The owners Grant and Paula are lovely and were very respectful of our privacy yet always willing to provide advice and tips if needed. As a family of 3 we all loved staying here and can highly recommend it.

  • We had a fantastic weekend at The Drop Off! Grant and Paula were lovely and were available if we needed anything.

    The apartment was beautiful- very clean, modern and plenty of room. The garden is gorgeous and we enjoyed eating the passion-fruit and watching the chooks. The location was great- very close to the beach and cafes and shops at Terrigal.

    We would definitely recommend The Drop Off for a weekend away, or a longer stay!

  • We highly recommend the drop-off! Grant and Paula were lovely hosts. From milk in the fridge, to passion-fruit picked fresh from the garden - it was the very thoughtful little things that made us feel so welcome during our stay. The apartment is lovely and incredibly clean and the garden and courtyard a gorgeous place to relax. Our 3 year old loved exploring and playing in the back yard. A short walk to town, it is really a fantastic location. Will definitely come back next time we are in Terrigal!

  • We stayed at the Drop-Off over Australia Day weekend and loved every minute of it.

    Before we arrived, Grant was very communicative and willing to accommodate our preferred arrival time.

    Upon arrival, Grant showed us around the property and explained the basic housekeeping need-to-knows.

    For the remainder of our pleasant two-night stay, Grant and Paula were very forthcoming with advice and hints on how to best use our time in Terrigal.

    The place itself is quaint, comfortable and more spacious than we thought. The hosts even let us use their fantastic backyard and sample produce from their amazing vegetable garden (try the figs).

    We have no hesitation recommending this property to anyone who prefers a home away from home when they're not, um, at home.

  • We spent a few days at the Drop-Off and had a great time! The place is very nicely arranged and super clean, in a great location close to the beach. We enjoyed chilling out in the backyard after a nice day out, the rooms are very comfortable and we slept like babies. We also found the place very practical to stay in with our 2.5-year-old kid.
    In addition, Grant and Paula were very friendly and helpful hosts. We will definitely be coming back!

Terrigal is a great place to stay.. it has a beach, shopping, cafes/restaurants, entertainment and is a short drive to many other beaches! We recommend this apartment to others.
