“Sargood on Collaroy is a unique experience, it is like nothing I have ever seen. The rooms are extremely spacious and fitted with technology to allow easy control of the features. The team were very knowledgeable and accommodating, and the great thing about my stay was experiencing new activities that you don’t get anywhere else. On top of this I met some amazing people who shared plenty of great information. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and can’t wait to go back!"Perry CrossGuest at Sargood on Collaroy
"My trip to Sargood was my first independent holiday since my injury. I loved everything about it! The accommodation was 5 star and the activities were amazing. But the best part about my experience was the people. With their help I tried activities I hadn't even done when I could walk, and proved to myself that anything is possible with the right help.Christine HamiltonGuest at Sargood on Collaroy
Thank you Sargood for this life changing experience."
“You meet people when you’re here and it takes you out of your comfort zone. You find yourself meeting people and everybody is really nice. Before you know it you’re talking to them every day, having dinner together and sharing a bottle of wine. It’s a nice and relaxed atmosphere to be in.”Nichole WattGuest at Sargood on Collaroy
