Review from Jake and Bobbi UOW Students from the USA.

“My partner and I stayed in the figtree bungalow for six months while on exchange from the US. We both studied at the University of Wollongong and made the short commute via bus. We were originally a bit hesitant to live off of campus being in a new country but quickly found we made the right decision. The bus stop to get to uni is just a short walk from the cabin which makes the trip to uni around 20 minutes or less. A major benefit of the bungalow was how much cheaper it is to stay there with two people versus staying on campus in the dorms.

The quaint bungalow was spotless and fully stocked with everything we needed. Mark and Kelly encouraged us to use their downstairs living space as a study area. This came in so handy when we didn’t want to take a bus to the library. They also graciously welcomed us into their kitchen multiple times per week to utilize their full sized kitchen when the weather didn’t allow for us to BBQ outside on our private deck.

Mark and Kelly are such amazing hosts going above and beyond anything we could have ever hoped for. In a few short months they have turned into lifelong friends. We are sad to leave the beautiful cabin, but we will be back to stay again!”

Please be advised this is a bungalow with 1 Queen size bed, own personal shower and toilet.

Figtree Bungalow is located in our backyard, completely separate from our house in the leafy suburb of Figtree. It is a stylish AIR CONDITIONED bungalow styled in a beach theme, with NETFLIX and own private deck and full use of our backyard and BBQ.

The BBQ is yours to use as you wish, we have provided BBQ tools and everything you need to clean up afterwards.

Figtree Bungalow is located in our backyard. Simply follow the footpath up to the backyard, your private entry is via the back gate (you will have to navigate a number of steps to get to the cabin as the cabin is significantly above street level). Once you've arrived and settled in, sit back and relax on your own private deck amongst the trees.

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.

Listen out for the kookaburras, cockatoos, lorikeets and various other bird-life as you relax on your spacious timber deck with table and chairs in a family friendly environment.

There are 4 windows fitted with fly screens and blinds to provide a breeze, as well as ensuring you have your privacy.
