About the property

The Wood & Sands House


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.

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

Come and enjoy the experience of the Central Coast it has so much to offer.

Superb Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is adorable! Beautiful surroundings and sounds of nature to wake up to. Cathy was a lovely and very accommodating host, including when I accidentally locked the keys in the house! Will definitely be back. Very comfortable and wishes we had longer.

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our girls weekend away. It was close enough to the Terrigal main strip to be a quick car ride but far enough away to feel that you could really relax. House was great and the owner was very friendly.

Brilliant house & very welcoming hosts

  • 5 of 5

We stayed last weekend with two families in the house and it was just amazing. The yard was huge and perfect for the little kids to run around. Cathy was easy to communicate with and everything was just so easy. We are already planning on going back. We wanted a place with space and quietness and it worked really well. Highly recommend.

Gorgeous house, location and surrounds

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a weekend over easter with my extended family, including 5 young kids and had a wonderful time. The house is as gorgeous as it looks in the pictures and the gardens are massive - perfect for kids wanting to explore the outdoors. Only 10 mins from Terrigal beach. We will definitely be back, it had everything we needed and at a great price.
