A feature of this house, which has already been in several magazines because of its uniqueness, are the high ceilings and wide hallway and it is conveniently located just a short level walk to the beautiful Copacabana Beach.
The villa is very private and secure with a high rendered brick fence and has a large partly covered paved rear outdoor area as well as grassed level yard.
Modern open plan kitchen, stainless steel microwave, dishwasher, fridge and oven. Included in this open plan room is both a dining and sitting area with stunning open fire place.
The property is air-conditioned and equipped with everything you need and on arrival you will certainly appreciate the Welcome Gift provided by the owner. Additionally, should you wish to be pampered onsite with a professional massage or a chef-cooked five star menu, staying at this breathtaking villa will make this possible for you, as well!

Get fit walking the hill to Copa lookout and read extracts from Captain Cook's logbook on his travels in the area. Watch the whales pass in whale "season" - June/July.
Need a nature fix? The area is surrounded by National Parks - stroll through trails to local beaches, view the ocean from high rock ledges.
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 only 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.
