About the Area
Two stations north of Gosford and just over 1 hour from Sydney City, its convenient and yet peaceful. Tall gums line the back yard and we join onto a corrider leading to the Strickland State Forest, which ensures a variety of birds and some wildlife. Rileys Rest provides a quiet space for you to keep to yourself downstairs if you like. Or you are welcome to join us upstairs and share our home as your own.

Fantastic family and room ! A large room, confortable bed, new bathroom, but the most incredible part is definitely Mary and Chris, they where just perfect, I couldn't find any better family in Australia !
The homestay with Mary & Chris was 1st class all the way. Very welcoming, friendly, & great fun. A very comfortable space to relax and made to feel at home in lovely surrounds. Thanks again, will always remember the wonderful experience.
Host and family were friendly and a pleasure to speak with. Louise was a joy. Peace full situation for guest.
Lovely accommodating hosts. Would have liked to stay longer if we had time.
