Situated a easy ten-or-so minute stroll 900m away from beautiful Copacabana Beach, Bazza's Place is an idyllic and relaxing two-bedroom, one bath pet-friendly holiday home available for private use.
The interiors of Bazza’s Place were designed to evoke the classic Australian beach houses of the 1960s without forgoing the modern comforts today's discerning holidaymakers have come to expect. With an eclectic mix of vintage and new furnishings, original photography, art, anime, movie posters and surf memorabilia, the split-level lounge room has down-filled three seater and a two seater sofas, a large coffee table perfect for board games, entertainment console, an entry table to set your bags and a comfy leather reading chair.
Fully renovated in 2011, Bazza’s Place also offers a fully-equipped state-of-the-art kitchen, modern bathroom, three flat screen televisions including one outdoors, Wi-Fi, air-con, ceiling fans, gas heating, instant and endless hot water, heated towel racks, washer & dryer, alarm system, DVD/Blu-Ray players and library, and an iPod docking stereo system. Bazza's Place is also stocked with games like Scrabble, Monopoly, backgammon, Uno, Jenga and more, and the bookcase is filled with best sellers and magazines sure to suit anyone's interest.
The eat-in kitchen comfortably seats four and is fully stocked with flatware, glassware, cutlery, pots and pans and baking dishes. The kitchen also has a Miele gas cooktop and fan-forced oven, dishwasher, French door refrigerator, wine fridge, microwave, capsule coffee machine, kettle, toaster, blender, slow cooker, sandwich press and other conveniences.
The master bedroom features a queen size bed, a mounted flat screen television with DVD player, built-in wardrobe and drawers, bedside tables and lamps, and alarm clock. The second bedroom features a double-sized bed with bedside tables and lamps and alarm clock. The fully tiled modern bath features glass shower with rain shower head, sink and vanity, heat lamps, heated towel rack and a modern toilet, and the internal laundry has a 6.5kg Bosch frontloading washing machine, 4kg Simpson dryer and ironing board and iron. Typically guest provide their own sheets and towels, but linen is available for an additional charge of AU$25.
It's the outdoor areas that truly set Bazza's Place apart from other holiday accommodation in Copa. The north-facing backyard brings in natural light all day long and offers unobstructed views into a nature preserve that is home to native fauna including kookaburras, owls, rainbow lorikeets, whip birds and more -- and bushland for a far as the eye can see. The double-sliding doors open to create a seamless connection between indoors and out, filling the home with the fresh sea breezes and sweet fragrances from the lush garden.
Set far back on the 690 metre square block, the outdoor entertaining area of Bazza's Place offers complete privacy with distinct areas for dining, relaxing or exploring. With mature trees, manicured lawn, decking throughout and a mix of native and other flowering flora, the backyard is the perfect respite to relax with the weekend papers, a book or even your iPad with full-strength password-protected Wi-Fi accessible outdoors. With a large Weber-Q BBQ and outdoor television at your disposal, your meal can be enhanced by the herb garden directly adjacent with chives, thyme, basil, oregano, lemon grass, tarragon, chillies, rosemary and more all available for guest use. Fully fenced and secure, pets also have plenty of grassy places to lie in the sun and dry off after a swim and run on the beach.
Bazza's Place was previously named "Camellia Cottage" and from the front veranda it's easy to see why. The lush and mature camellias throughout the front yard explode into a red, pink and white display throughout the colder months, while the fragrant star jasmine fills the air in spring and autumn. Warmer months see gardenias and frangipani on display while the surrounding gum and palm trees provide shade from the summer sun.
But people come to Copacabana for the beach and Bazza's Place is an pleasant stroll to one of the best the NSW Central Coast has to offer. While many other holiday properties sit atop Copa's steep hilly streets, the 900m path from Bazza's Place is easily done on foot, bicycle, with a pram or even on a skateboard. A manageable walk for holiday-makers of all ages, you'll pass Copacabana Primary School and its adjoining parkland and two tennis courts as you wind your way down to the beachfront and adjacent shops with cafes, a chemist, bakery, newsagent, bottle shop, grocery store and more on offer. Wander a few hundred meters along the main road and you'll come to the access point to the off-leash dog exercise area of Copa and McMaster's Beach.
Bazza’s Place is the perfect destination for a romantic couples getaway or chilled out beach holiday with friends. While children are welcome, we ask parents to carefully consider if the split-level layout of the interior and backyard, the bedding configuration and lack of bathtub is appropriate for their needs.
Lastly, there are a few rules all holidaymakers are to adhere to:
1. No smoking indoors and all cigarette butts to be disposed of properly.
