Copacabana ("Copa") has a relaxed seaside village atmosphere and is surrounded by beach, lagoon and national parks. If you are looking for a commercialised, developed beach resort - then you wont find it at Copa. This seaside village has a laid back atmosphere, so if you are looking for a great beach to catch up on your tan and is safe for the kids or if you are a keen surfer then Copa is for you. Copa is situated close to other popular beaches such as Avoca, Terrigal and McMasters. Copa Shells is an easy 5 minute flat walk to surf beach and local village shops & cafes, where you can enjoy a or have brunch at the local cafes or a seafood or steak dinner at the Wbreakfat, lunch, and dinner at local cafes or seafood and steak at White Sands Rest. (Theres also a great takeaway for those looking for a hamburger and chips hit!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome quiant house This was the perfect location for they holiday we intended on having. If you want to relax and enjoy hearing the waves crashing and birds chirping this is the place you want to be. We were able to have my husband and myself our 2 teenage daughters 2 cats and our puppy inside the house that has more than enough room. The house was clean and tidy, kitchen has everything needed to cook up a storm. It was cool enough for us to be able to use the fireplace so bonus for us. laundry and bathroom facilities great. Great old quint and quirky cottage that has alot of character. Short stroll to beach shops and surf club. We will be booking again very soon. Thanks Cheryl was a pleasure for sure.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent stay but mouse wasn't invited! Our group had a lovely stay and enjoyed a pot-belly fire on the balcony one night. However, supplies of dishwasher tablets and toilet paper was very low, and the resident mouse made us all a bit anxious!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Excellent Location Disappointing Accommodation I have booked three previous holiday houses with Stayz and written positive reviews for each. While I hesitated to write a negative review of Copa Shells because the owner is clearly well intentioned, I decided to do so in the interests of others. We took our three grandchildren ages 4-10 years for a 10 day holiday to Copa Shells in mid-January. We arrived at 5 pm to find the house had been double booked by the owner. A frantic call to the owner resulted in her offer to arrange accommodation for us in a nearby motel for the night. Fortunately, the dilemma was resolved by the incredibly kind occupants who took pity on our situation. While we took the children to dinner, they cleaned and vacated the house. The location of the property was excellent with the lagoon close by and the beach and shops within walking distance.The house had a well equipped kitchen and laundry, an air conditioner and plenty of beds (although the upper bunks could not be used by young children because there were no safety rails). Unfortunately, the living space (deceptively roomy looking in the wide-angle picture on the Stayz website) was very small and totally inadequate for two adults and three children. The small living/dining/kitchen area was crammed with extraneous furniture and bric-a brac. There was nowhere for five of us to sit and have a meal together. The small dining table was jammed against a wall between a microwave stand and a built up fireplace surround. We ended up having to seat either ourselves or the children at the coffee table to eat. While there was a large table and plenty of seating on the balcony, it was largely unusable because it was exposed to the sun and rain. In addition, the heavy glass sliding door leading to the balcony was in need of repair and was even difficult for adults to operate. The yard was overgrown and littered with even more furniture and other objects. Overall we were incredibly disappointed with the holiday house. It my opinion the owner needs to adopt a more professional approach to the booking arrangements and clear the house and grounds of unnecessary items.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Location and Lovely Cottage The house in Excellent Location and everything you need is in the kitchen. And a dog friendly!!! Cheryl is very helpful and responsible owner and she always replied to my calls and emails. If you are looking for the cosy and simple house, great location and prize you will be not disappointed. Thank you Cheryl again we will be coming back. Location is always a winner for us. Two minutes and you at the lagoon or at the beach with a dog. Fantastic.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Owner needs to listen to clients requests As nice as Cheryl was, I wish owners wouldnt lie about their properties for business. The property was quaint however when enquring I asked if there was stairs and that I was taking my elderly mother there (77 years of age), she said there is a ramp and a few (few meaning 22 stairs in total (I counted them) and the steepest incline to a house going downhill. I frequently have my mother in a wheelchair but what do u do when u arrive to a property at 10pm at night. You have to take it and cannot cancel. Not only that, I like my privacy and noticed the next morning that there was x 2 night vision cameras (on) as you walked out the door. I was horrified to think that big brother was watching and taping me. I have had a holiday house in the past and so left the house in the condition that I found it. The house was quaint beside the fact that it is not suitable for elderly people which i made Cheryl fully aware of. My mother ended up having two falls. One from the fire place (low built up platform) and another in the second bathroom where even I tripped (you dont have to be elderly). There was no frying pan which I could find. Everything else was there. And too many non working lights in the loungeroom (simplify). Other than that, very peaceful and well stocked. Cheryl did not reply by email in a timely manner as promised when I made a request of her as I am very organised.
