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.

Lovely retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, clean and well maintained house. Large bedrooms, well equipped kitchen and beautiful grounds. 5 of us enjoyed a weekend stay and wished we had more time to sit on the verandah and enjoy the calm outlook.

Wonderfully relaxing property and location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in January 2018 (no option to select 2018 in the drop down box). We felt relaxed and at home from the moment we arrived, a most enjoyable stay at a property that is so well appointed. We look forward to returning again soon!

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

This house was home away from home such a gorgeous cottage. Felt like stepping back in time with such a country feel. Everything you could need for your stay are available for use. This was the perfect place for my family with their children, to get ready for my sons wedding locally. The little added touches added to the stay. The gardens are superb as an avid gardener we were delighted with the

surrounds. We will definately to be back.

Thanks so much Catherine who is only too happy to assist if needed.

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.
