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.

    We enjoyed Michelle's stay from the 1st day until the last. She was a quiet no fuss guest who was also happy to join in family life and even walk the dog. We can high;y recommend her to other hosts.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
