Wollongong Beach is a 6km drive away and there are many other beautiful beaches all the way up and down the South Coast, which are easily accessible.

Enjoy your own private dwelling, self-contained with private side entrance, separate from our house. Check in time is anytime after 2pm, however if you need to arrive later in the evening that's absolutely fine as the path will be well lit up well for you.
Accommodation is clean, modern and relaxing with Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning, a queen sized bed, fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle, tea & coffee. All bed linen, bath towels, hand towels, bath mat and tea towels are provided. We have even provided a woollen blanket which is nice to wrap up in so you can sit outside on your own entertaining deck during those cooler nights.
This is a dedicated guest cabin. Short term or long stays are welcome. 1 month, 3 month, 6 month leases also available and a "Special Rate" for ongoing Monday to Thursday stays (Would suit business or UOW travellers working or studying Monday to Friday's). Message for details.
The cabin has a small kitchenette, to cater for basic food preparation. It includes a microwave, toaster, kettle, fridge (with small freezer space), and sink. There is no oven or stove available.
You have your own luxurious, walk in shower with two water output shower settings (a fabulous massaging jet of water).
You also have your own private toilet facility which has its own separate area and entrance within cabin (Cover picture shows exact layout).
A cheese board and cheese knife is also in the cabin if you'd like to prepare a yummy platter to snack on while you enjoy your stay. Help yourself to our herb garden if you're preparing a salad to go with your BBQ dinner. The BBQ is yours to use as you wish, we have provided BBQ tools and everything you need to clean up afterwards.
We add to your experience with us by providing things such as shampoo, conditioner and body wash, bottled sparkling water on arrival, and your own beach towels. Little things like a sewing kit, clothes brush and shoe-shine will make you feel as though you are in a small "boutique" style type of accommodation.
There are 4 windows fitted with fly screens and blinds to provide a breeze, as well as ensuring you have complete privacy.
Business bookings and long term bookings: We have created a second room (totally separate from the cabin) with a work desk area including a desk, chair, comfortable lounge and Wifi access. The area is very private and overlooks the park across the road. It's a great area for working or unwinding after a hard days work. Access is Monday - Friday. Weekend usage is subject to availability, so please check with us at the time of booking if a Saturday or Sunday is required. Check out picture 25 in our photo gallery for details.
We have unlimited free WiFi (NBN), however streaming and speed is subject to service provider and is out of our control. A Samsung Galaxy tablet has access to NETFLIX, FoxtelGO, ABCView, SBS, Tenplay, 9Now and 7.
Access to the Samsung Galaxy tablet, NETFLIX and FoxtelGO is an added extra that we offer for all our guests upon request. If the Internet connection is slow, you are more than welcome to connect your own personal WiFi to the Samsung Galaxy tablet.
Connect via Bluetooth to the Bluetooth speaker we have provided, and bring up YouTube so you sit on the deck and enjoy your own personalised play list!
Figtree Beach Cabin is located in our backyard, completely separate from our house so you will always feel that you have your OWN space. Simply follow the footpath up to the backyard, your private entry is via the back gate (you will have to navigate a number of steps to get to the cabin as the cabin is significantly above street level). Once you've arrived and settled in, sit back and relax on your own private deck amongst the trees.
Listen out for the kookaburras, cockatoos, king parrots, lorikeets and various other bird-life as you relax on your spacious timber deck, equipped with a six seater outdoor table and chairs in a family friendly environment. You may even spot our blue tongue lizard if he/she decides to pop out to say hello! Stay during October and November and you'll be treated to the gorgeous and vibrant purple flowers of the Jacaranda tree as it's in full bloom at this time of year.
We have travelled extensively and know what we do and don't like about accommodation we have previously stayed in. This is why we take real pride and care in offering accommodation that people immediately feel comfortable and relaxed in. Ensuring you arrive to an extremely clean, tidy and fresh place to stay is our top priority.
Whilst accommodation is more suited to a couple or a single person, children are more than welcome. We can also provide a portacot upon request, to accommodate a child up to the age of about 2 years old.
We also offer an Experience called "South Coast Surfari" which can be booked by the Airbnb Experience. (Separate to accommodation booking) On this experience we will take you surfing anywhere from Stanwell Park Reserve all the way down to Gerringong. After the surf we will retreat to a local café or pub for lunch, beer or coffee.
All you need to bring is your board, wetsuit, towel. We will do all the driving so you can now "Stay, Enjoy, Relax and now Surf" at Figtree Beach Cabin.
For those that like to workout, we have an observation deck fully equipped with a battle rope, medicine ball, 20kg shoulder sandbag, skipping rope and light weights. The observation deck is directly opposite a large, spacious park - you are more than welcome to use our workout gear at the park.
Figtree Beach Cabin is a non-smoking environment.
We have created a Instagram account called "Airbnb Figtree Beach Cabin" which highlights local cafes, restaurants, scenery, beaches and other local attractions. Follow us on Instagram, as it's a great way to get to know the local area before your stay.
