It's "The Beach House Meets Bali"?, an idyllic oasis across the road from the lagoon and a 2 minute flat walk to the beach. Take the waterfront “short cut"? and feed the ducks on the way. Fab for families with children of all ages, pets welcome.

Looking like a beach hut from the front, the inside house opens like a well kept secret leading to a tropical courtyard. A large entertaining deck with shaded awning leads via a wooden walkway to a self contained studio, (pass the outdoor hot shower on the way) perfect for a parents retreat or for a "getaway"? for couples with babies.
Surrounded by a canopy of trees featuring an orchestra of birdsong in the mornings, the outdoor hot shower, fans, barbeque and thoughtful decoration make this area the entertaining focus of the house. Private and spacious with the occasional bush turkey and possum strolling through. Reverse cycle airconditioning makes summer cool and winter warm if needed. Maximum of 4 steps in lower part of house with a bedroom access for the elderly.

The Copa shops are very useful we have: mini market, ice cream shop, bottle shop, news agency with post office, hair salon and try the wood fired pizzas from the new owners at "Sirocco" on the corner. A new chemist at discount prices is our latest in the "boon". All of this is literally up the road around the bend- a maximum five minute flat walk.
The local mini market also has surf boards for hire. (The house has 3 boogie boards for your convenience).
No car needed here as the property is located on the lagoon side of Copa. The flat walk to Cochrane Lagoon and the surf of Copa or the adjoining beach of MacMaster's are accessed across the road. This area is also sheltered from stiff ocean breezes which means you can cross the road and feed the ducks at sunset in comfort.

By car, lots to see along the coastline, for example, south to Kincumber, have coffee and see the Arboretum at Pearl Beach or just wander tucked away bays.
The hourly ferry service from Ettalong or Wagstaff is bliss for when you need to get out of the sun. Brisbane Waters can also be wandered by small ferries. Rather fun to catch the ferry to Palm Beach from Wagstaff and do a "gal's" spot of shopping.
For the golfers who experience withdrawal symptoms - Gosford and Woy Woy courses will solve the problem and the driving range at Kincumber will give you a quick fix.
Gosford Regional Gallery at West Gosford has great Japanese Gardens, coffee shop and of course, gallery and gift shop. Gallery 460 near Kincumber has a gallery and huge sculpture park definitely worth a visit.
The coffee shop at the Surf Club - Bar Copa serves excellent light meals, and there are many more 5 -10 mins drive at Avoca and Terrigal. Fisherman's Wharf at Woy Woy is good for seafood and pelican feeding times are worth watching.
Movies at Kincumber. Avoca and Erina Fair. the restored Avoca Theatre is an attraction by itself.
