We stayed in one of three bedrooms (with en-suite bathroom) in an outbuilding with a communal kitchen and lounge. Everything was very tidy, and there were scented candles in the room and chocolates on the bed. The bath was not really adult-sized, though. Ingredients for breakfast were provided, but you needed to prepare it yourself and wash up afterwards. There wasn't a dishwasher or even a drying rack. When we stayed there, the toilet paper holder fell off from the wall. Overall though, it was a relaxing break except for some glitches which, for the price charged, we weren't expecting. It's a very picturesque hobby-farm location with a view of lush rolling hills and some farm animals.
Late in the week, we decided to have a couple of nights away on the Central Coast and found the Acreage B&B to be available. It is located in rural acreage and is reasonably quiet. The room is not overly large, but adequate for 2 night stay with a good covered balcony to sit out on and look out over the valley views, which have unfortunately for the whole area, been somewhat drought effected. The breakfast arrangements worked well enough with the common kitchen and dining area. We had a nice visit but for what is being sold as a premium B&B, the less than premium detail in presentation of the room, the general building and grounds maintenance means that it is difficult to give it a really great rating for what is a reasonably high nightly tariff.
Lovely secluded, relaxing spot at the Acreage, which was a great setup for 4 of us on a girls weekend. 3 spa suites in a separate house from the owners, with kitchenette and large lounge. We organised a mobile beauty spa company to pamper us for the afternoon with our self catered bubbles and snacks. We were far too relaxed to go out, spending the evening watching cable tv Sex & the City reruns and eating takeaway. Continental breakfast plus eggs/bacon for those up for cooking. Coffee pod machine a bonus! Definitely coming back.
Very much enjoyed two night stay. Breakfast's highlight a huge serve of fruit. Bottle of champagne on arrival. Balcony overlooks property and valley with an array of birds. Alpacas including an adventurous two week old one. Selection of books and DVDs. Large share room with couches and big screen TV. With three rooms it seems to work on who every is first. You guessed - it wasn't us! No bar fridge in room but large share one downstairs. Would stay again - given card for 10% discount on next visit.
What a wonderful place The Acreage is! Nestled in a peaceful valley at the midpoint between Avoca Beach (5 min drive) and Terrigal Beach (7 min drive) you will find a beautifully appointed B & B. The Acreage is a real oasis of calm and tranquility - after a long day, we relaxed straight away in our room, which came with everything you might expect and was also large, light and spotless. Marisa and Rick, the owners, couldn't have been more welcoming and generous with their time. Highly recommended. We look forward to returning.
The property has the potential to be a first rate property with excellent parking, good location, good size units and rooms and a very good pool and barbeque area, however the carpet in the unit my wife and I stayed in was filthy. The managers were kind enough to offer us some others but they were not any better.
My friend and I just travelled from Melbourne to the Central Coast of NSW and stayed at The Acreage. It exceeded all of our expectations. Our host Marissa, was just delightful and so very helpful with advice and directions even before we arrived, and even more delightful in person. Spectacular views and surroundings from every corner of this spotlessly clean, and beautifully decorated luxury B&B. The service was second to none and we will definitely be returning to stay. Such a relaxing place to be. Thanks Marissa you definitely made our trip so worthwhile!
So peaceful and quiet - I loved sitting outside undercover in the rain whilst sipping tea :) My husband and I were thoroughly looked after and really appreciated the personal touches, both to the room and the stay overall. The owner even showed us around and showed us where everything was and how to use the coffee machine. She even rang my husband from the shops to double check the kind of special milk he needed! :-) Very happy and we'll be recommending to all our friends. A wonderful stay! :-)
I rarely stay at the same place twice, preferring to try new places as i travel. But after my second weekend at the Acreage, all I can think of is when I'll return. I've been once as a couple and once with the whole family where we booked all three rooms. All I can say is that this place is beautiful and so are the hosts. Rick and Marissa feel like old friends, nothing is inconvenient for them and they are incredibly generous with their time and advice. The rooms are stunning, with all the little details thought of, from the beach bag to carry the beach towels to the bath salt for a relaxing bath. the whole place exudes an energy of calm and we rarely left the acreage the whole time we were there, dipping in the saltwater pool, feeding the alpacas, lounging in front of the spectacular view, watching one of the many dvds they supply and just relaxing. I'm hesitant to post this as I want to make sure there will always be a booking for me when I return!! But truly, The Acreage is an incredible getaway and it's all thanks to those wonderful hosts. Thank you and see you next time!…
We stayed here for just one night as a treat for my husband to escape Sydney for his birthday. We were really impressed by the service we received and the grounds around the B&B. In the evening we got a taxi into Terrigal for dinner and easily got a taxi back. It is only a 10 minute drive to Terrigal and 5 minutes to Avoca Beach. We were given plenty of helpful suggestions for places to visit and where to have dinner. The house has plenty of shared areas leading out to gardens where you could spend time and relax. Nice touches like the teas, coffee machine and port really made it feel like a place you could spend more time in. We loved our stay and would definitely recommend it.
