Finchley B&B Wandandian - pet-friendly
Firstly, PLEASE NOTE: Should you wish to make ENQUIRIES as to availability, PLEASE EMAIL: [email protected] DO NOT COMPLETE THE FORM that is provided, as I am currently unable to access any Messages. And... Thanks must go to Alex Moussawer, for this gorgeous view of his dear little Yorkshire Terrier, 'Quint' one of our four-footed guests in January 2018.
I was delighted, amazed and very relieved to report that Finchley B and B miraculously escaped obliteration in the dreadful fires that engulfed much of our beautiful Shoalhaven region last summer, at the very worst time for visitors, the peak summer holiday period. We were just getting relaxed and welcoming guests again, when of course the global Coronavirus struck and we had to consider the wellbeing of our guests, our community and ourselves in declining bookings until the government dictates that it is safe to encourage travel again. We certainly hope to be welcoming guests again very soon, so please feel free to enquire.
Please note: the main cottage has a minimum of 2 nights' stay throughout the year on Fri and Sat nights, and a minimum of any 3 nights over the busiest Christmas-New Year times (Christmas to end of January).
Finchley has been operating for nearly five years now, including the very successful addition of our Little Finchley unit, which is very popular with through-travellers and short stay guests who do not need all the extra space and amenities of the larger unit. We continue to welcome many lovely guests, often with their pets, and enjoy making new friends and welcoming back familiar faces.
'Little Finchley' has proven to be a great success - a smaller version of the main cottage. Both the cottage, Finchley B and B, and the smaller unit, Little Finchley, are listed with Airbnb, TripAdvisor, Nowra Visitors Centre and HomeAway (formerly Stayz).
This means we have available two separate units - which can also be opened up to provide one larger unit for bigger groups.
We are situated just two minutes from the Princes Highway in Wandandian, in the heart of the beautiful Shoalhaven-Jervis Bay region, on 1ha (2.2 acres) of lighty treed rural land with lovely views, and continue to receive many 5 star reviews with Airbnb, which has also yielded a 'Super Host' badge for four and a half years now.
(1) The fully self-contained Finchley B&B cottage is adjacent to, but not overlooked by, our two-storey residence. Our rates for the main cottage commence at $170 per night (off-season, Sun to Thurs), $185 per night (off-season, Fri and Sat) this rate is for 1 or 2 people, and $30 per extra guest after two. There are no hidden costs, eg cleaning fees or penalties for bringing pets, as long as guests guarantee pets are well behaved and house trained. Finchley is 5 star customer-rated in Airbnb, ideal for a family of four or four adults, and can accommodate up to six, by special arrangement. The entire property is fenced and secure but the cottage also has an enclosed rear yard. Check Airbnb and HomeAway reviews for feedback on what many of our guests say about their stay with us.
(2) 'Little Finchley' is also self-contained, and comprises a separate bedroom (QS bed), a small sitting room equipped with TV, DVD player, DVDs, a library, and while it does not have a kitchen, it does include a kettle, toaster, microwave, coffee plunger, small electric frypan, bar fridge and 'Continental' breakfast supplies, plus full bathroom (NB: shower over bath). It has its own spacious deck area with al fresco coffee table and chairs, BBQ and separate private entrance plus a gated grassed area which can be closed off so your pet can be outdoors beyond the deck, in a secure space. The rate for the smaller unit starts at $95 (low season mid-week rate) per night for two people, including breakfast supplies, and it is ideal for a single or a couple, short stay or through travellers, just wanting a smaller stopover in transit. It is also available as an extension to the main cottage, which means a larger group can be accommodated.
Most of the property is available to our guests, and we have under-cover parking for one guest vehicle per unit and plenty of room to park extra vehicles, including caravans, boats etc.
Please refer 'Services' tab, or contact us direct for further details and availability. Well-behaved pets welcome, subject to negotiation upon requesting booking, and must not be left in the units unsupervised.

Testimonials by some of our previous guests:
"Perfect get-away for us all - Roxy especially. Home away from home - so welcoming. Beautiful surroundings." (Chris, Liz and Roxy, Sydney, Oct 2018 - Little Finchley)
"Thank you Bronwyn for a lovely stay. So much to do in the area and such beautiful beaches. A pity we didn't have more time. So relaxing to stay in your B&B with more DVDs, books, magazines and outdoor games for the children than we were able to do justice to. The girls enjoyed playing with Louis and Darcy, and visiting the hen house."
(Vincent, Tione, Moorea, Kimera and Tiare, New Caledonia, Jan 2017 - Finchley B and B)
"We had an awesome stay. The room was very well stocked with every convenience we could need. Bronwyn was a lovely host, and the grounds were very serene. Thanks, once again!" (Charmaine and Will, Sydney, March 2018 - Little Finchley)
"Once again, such an amazing property and relaxing stay. The boys (dogs) had the best time exploring the property and we had a very relaxing stay ourselves. Thank you for thinking of every little detail and providing the best experience for both the people and the dogs. I was so excited to return to Finchley with Nikki and Tux and we definitely hope to return soon."
(Rachel, Sydney, Feb 2017 - Finchley B and B)
"Thank you for a wonderful, relaxing stay. The place is so peaceful and lovely to come back to somewhere homely after a day of exploring. Great suggestions for places to visit were much appreciated. We hope to be back soon." (Helen and Rich, and dog, Bo, Sydney - April, 2018)
".. Quiet, clean and comfortable. Everything supplied and breakfast was greatly enjoyed, and Bronwyn made us very welcome. We only stayed overnight but my wife said it was far superior to hotels and motels." (Ron and Socorro, Sydney, stayed July 2018, Little Finchley).
This was our first experience in travel with Toto (dog). So easy and calm and peaceful. We will return. Thank you." (Beth and Steve, Newcastle, June, 2018 - Little Finchley)
"After riding the bikes in a heavy rain this house has been a little Paradise for us. We've had everything we needed to feel like at home. Thanks for the laundry, we really appreciate. Himal has enjoyed the stay the most! We have watched "Finding Nemo" three times! Thank you!! (Izaro, Himal and Urdin, from the Basque Country, Europe, April 2017, Little Finchley)
