Overview

About the property

The Wood & Sands House

THIS IS NOT A PARTY HOUSE. STRICTLY NO HENS,BUCKS OR SCHOOLIES. NOT AVAILABLE FOR WEDDINGS OR FUNCTIONS.

A perfect getaway for the family or a friends weekend or even just a secluded hideaway for two. It feels like you are deep in the country but only a 5km drive to beautiful Terrigal Beach.

Relax and enjoy the tranquillity of this unique double story Country House in Matcham on 1.5 acres but with Terrigal Beach and its boutique shops and variety of restaurants close by.

The owners residence is also on the property with both houses having their own private areas.

Wake to the peaceful sound of birds in the morning with bellbirds tinkling away all day long. Have a game of cricket, kick a footy with the children or just relax with a book on the extensive front lawn.

For those who like to shop, head to nearby Erina Fair.

Other local attractions include movies, golf, horse riding, quad biking, fishing, canoeing, hang gliding, iceskating, reptile park, children's animal farm and maze, and bushwalking.

The house accommodates 8 people comfortably with 1 Queen Bedroom and 2 King Single Bedrooms plus 1 Bathroom upstairs. Downstairs there is 1 Double Bedroom and 1 Queen sofa bed (very comfortable in a fully closed off study), plus main bathroom.

The house includes Foxtel and Free WiFi.

BBQ available on front Verandah.

Bed linen and bath towels are supplied. Starter pack of Tea and coffee are complimentary.

If you just want peace and quiet then this is the place to be.

Not suitable for schoolies.

Not suitable for pets.

Please note: This house is in a quiet semi-rural area and is NOT a party house.

House per night is $250 base rate (up to 2 Guests /2 nights min). Extra guests are $65 pp per night. No charge for babies under 2yrs (using own port- a- cot).

A beautiful home in a beautiful location. Serene, peaceful, cozy, spacious, comfortable. A short drive to the cafes and beaches of Terrigal and Avoca. Loved it and will return! Five hearts. Thank you Cathy!

Perfect for our needs!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for us as it gave the children space to run around. The house is very spacious - just made for relaxing and enjoying the view. It is also close enough to all the tourist places without being " in the thick of it."
