Terry Kaljo



Supporter of endangered animals, contemporary dance and creative thinker. Highly skilled in the fine art of beautifying living spaces and can often be spotted on Sydney harbour sailing about.

Terry is the creative force behind Contemporary Hotels and a true visionary in the luxury travel and accommodation space — light years ahead of her time.

Contemporary Hotels was founded close to twenty years ago with Terry’s idea for the first contemporary boutique hotels in Sydney, the Medusa, the Kirketon and a collection of oh-so-chic holiday villas followed; the first was Rockridge Palm Beach.

She is an interior designer, stylist and mother of three who reinvented many iconic Sydney homes such as La Piscine, as spotted in Vogue and Conde Nast. Yes, you can stay here!

Contemporary Hotels is Australia’s largest luxury holiday letting mega-agency, with a portfolio of Australia’s most spectacular villas, mansions, estates, and penthouses.

An avid supporter of the arts Terry is on the Sydney Dance Company fundraising committee and also helps save precious animals facing extinction as Chair of the Zoofari Committee of Taronga Zoo, where she is also a Patron.
