The space
Please take the time to read our property description and view the photos of Figtree Bungalow before booking, to ensure our Airbnb accomodation suits your needs. We love our guests to feel at home and our motto is “Stay, Enjoy and Relax.” If you have any questions or concerns before booking, drop us a message via the Airbnb App.

Please note and take into consideration before booking:

“You will need to navigate a number of steps up a long path to get to the bungalow, as the bungalow is significantly above street level and located in our backyard. If you have mobility issues please take this into account before booking Figtree Bungalow. See pic 27 in gallery for exact location and size of bungalow on our property.”

“Figtree Bungalow has a Non-Smoking and No Pets Policy.” - Please be advised we have a Whippet dog (Puppy).

Figtree Bungalow 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.

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 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. There is a warm blanket which is nice to wrap up in so you can sit outside on your own entertaining deck during those cooler nights.

The bungalow has a small kitchenette, to cater for basic food preparation. It includes a microwave, toaster, kettle, fridge (with a small freezer space), and sink. There is no oven or stove available, however you have full use of the Weber Family BBQ on your own private deck.

You have your own luxurious, walk in shower with two water output shower settings (one which is a fabulous massaging jet of water).

You also have your own private toilet facility which has its own separate area and entrance within bungalow (please see photos for the 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. 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 by providing things such as shampoo, conditioner and body wash, bottled sparkling water as well as your own beach towels. Extras 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 bungalow) with a work area including a desk, chair, comfortable lounge, air conditioning and Wifi access. The area is very private and overlooks a large 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 photos 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. Please be advised there is “No Mounted TV” however we do have a APPLE IPAD TABLET that has access to NETFLIX, FoxtelGO and the “FreeView TV App” that you can stream and view all the same program and shows as normal TV e.g. ABC, SBS, 7, 9, 10, 11, One, Kids 22, ABC 24, 72, 7 Mate, 7 Flix,, Gem, Go and Life

Access to the Apple IPAD, 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 Apple IPAD.

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/November and you'll be treated to the gorgeous and vibrant purple flowers of the Jacaranda trees, as this is the time of year they are in full bloom!

For those that like to work-out, we have an observation deck fully equipped with a battle rope, medicine ball, skipping rope and light weights. The observation deck is directly opposite a large, spacious park (you are more than welcome to use our work-out gear over at the park).

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.

We also offer an Airbnb Experience called "South Coast Surfari" which can be booked via the Airbnb Experience (separate to accommodation booking). On this experience we will take you surfing - anywhere from Thirroul Beach all the way down to Port Kembla Beach. After the surf, we will retreat to a local café for a coffee or juice.

All you need to bring is your board, wetsuit and towel. We will do all the driving so you can now "Stay, Enjoy, Relax and now Surf" at Figtree Bungalow.

We have created an Instagram account called "Airbnb Figtree Bungalow" 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.

This is a dedicated guest bungalow for short-term or long-term guests via Airbnb.

We offer a special rate for ongoing Monday to Thursday/Friday stays (would suit business or UOW travellers working or studying during the week).

To get to Wollongong University:

About an 8 minute walk to the bus stop directly in front of McDonalds on the corner of the Princes Highway & Bellevue Road.

Take the 11 or 41 bus for a 15 minute journey that drops you off right next to the University Library at the main bus drop off.
