Usually its very peaceful.

'Ian's veranda is a charming work of art. He's converted a veranda into a stylish guest suite by combining functionality with art and, remarkably, he's done that in a way that money can't buy. That is, he’s achieved a very stylish result with clever problem solving and constructions using objects collected over his lifetime. You get the feeling you're in a special place. Highly recommended.’

Charming clawfoot bathtub with shower.
The now creatively updated original veranda bathing area and seperate powder room / toilet was installed by owners in the mid to late 1900’s with Councils approval. They enclosed the veranda so guests could stay.

Some reviews:

May 2021
'wow! the best! why, you ask? Because staying here is peaceful, restful, nurturing and inspiring. The consideration Ian has put into heightening your experience in his home is like putting fertiliser on your imagination, wonderment and heart. It is like a meditation on how to move through space with respect and balance. i loved it!!! The area of Wagstaffe is fantastic; bush, beaches, boats, birds, stars, fish, tides, cottages, privacy, quiet - it's the bomb.'

April 2021
This little place was perfect for our weekend away from the City. Ian has so many thoughtful touches throughout the place, and it was everything we expected based on the other reviews. We loved the bath robes, tub, access to WiFi and Netflix as well as being walking distance from the National Park and some beautiful beaches. We would recommend this place and would definitely be back if we’re in the area.

Ros - February 2021
Ian's place is a thoughtful, stylish, relaxing haven in beautiful Wagstaffe. Exceeded my high expectations of a beautiful stay for a solo retreat. I'd use a 6th star if available. Lovely in all respects.

Trevor and Dalyna - January 2021
'Ian is a fantastic host and I would recommend his lovely guest house to those looking for a quiet getaway in the Pretty Beach locale. As others have mentioned, the property has many many thoughtful touches and homely aspects which are a credit to Ian's artistic touch. It is clean, all amenities are provided and are of high quality, and there are many small surprises in the house that impressed us during our stay. Overall, a comfortable and relaxing stay with everything we needed and I commend this property to other users. Ian is also lovely to chat to and is full of advice for new visitors to the area.'

Bianca & Jack- January 2021
" Absolutely loved our stay here!! Such a special place with lots of thoughtful touches and a unique style. Ian was a wonderful host and very helpful. The area and local businesses were so wonderful and enjoyable too. Highly recommend on all accounts ! "

Alicia -January 2021
This place is phenomenal. Everything about it is exceptional and memorable. Ian’s small touches and beautiful styling make it extremely special and so comfortable. The bed! The bath! No words for how special this place is. We can not wait to come back!

Robert - January 2021
A real find. Very quirky in a great way and a total 5 star experience. Cannot recommend highly enough. Incredibly relaxing and enjoyable.

From Guest Iain and partner:
November 2020
Ian’s place is spectacular. The attention to detail is amazing. Perfect place for a memorable getaway.

October 2020
Ian's place is my definition of HEAVEN. The most beautiful Airbnb I've ever stayed in. I was speechless on arrival. Ian's styling is impeccable and the artistic, vintage design is to die for. The whole property was immaculately cleaned top to bottom, while retaining a level of homeliness that relaxed me the minute I set foot inside. There is nothing Ian hasn't thought of and it's clear he has his guests needs in mind at all times. Ian was a wealth of local knowledge and had many recommendations for dining options, ferry timetables and absolutely anything else we needed! Sometimes it's the small touches that make a place great; Ian's small touches are so plentiful that they add up to an overall 10/10 stay. 100% will be returning and recommending to anybody visiting the area.

October 2020
We stayed over the weekend at Ian’s Verandah Room and loved it. We loved all the unique styling details which made it very cozy. Everything you needed and more was supplied, making it a great space to hang out. Ian was extremely welcoming and provided a great list of places to eat and beaches to visit. Thanks so much for having us, we highly recommend a stay here!

October 2020
We had a lovely stay at Ian’s home. The apartment is full of quirky touches and is decorated very nicely. Lovely views of the water and a great comfy bed. Would definitely stay again!

With an area of just 40 hectares and a little over 200 properties in the whole town, Wagstaffe makes up for its modest size by delivering exceptional natural beauty every way you look. Located 93 kilometres north of Sydney at the southern most point of the NSW Central Coast, Wagstaffe is surrounded by water on three sides, delivering breathtaking views across Brisbane Water and Broken Bay to Ettalong Beach and Killcare. And with Bouddi National Park for a coastal backdrop, life in Wagstaffe really is all about the stunning natural landscape.

A secluded and peaceful lifestyle is how the locals like it in Wagstaffe. Although primarily a residential suburb, Wagstaffe’s proximity to neighbouring Hardys Bay, Killcare and Ettalong ensures there’s always something to see and do. For activities close to home, the striking waterways and local beaches provide plenty of fodder for outdoor enthusiasts and indoor enthusiasts at The GRAPEVINE.

For a private seaside paradise away from the hustle and bustle of city life, you can’t beat Wagstaffe. You can look forward to a much-needed sea change when in Wagstaffe.
