Welcome to The Surfing Seal, our child and pet friendly, fully renovated with new combustion heater, self contained beach cottage located at Seal Rocks, and just minutes walk to idyllic beaches.

Seal Rocks is an oasis, set in the Myall lakes national park and located just three hours north of Sydney. Its renowned for its great beaches and natural beauty and has long been considered one of the last frontiers of the North Coast. Children and adults alike will love the gentle waves of boat beach and Number 1 beach, while teenagers and surf enthusiasts are in their element at world famous Treachery and Lighthouse beaches.


Surfing Seal is the perfect place to make your beachside holiday complete. Renovated in stylishly simple beach design, you will fall in love with this light & airy beach house. Polished wooden floor boards throughout, brand new combustion heater for those winter days, spacious dining areas inside & out and a new private sun drenched balcony with stunning rainforest views. Three large bedrooms; Queen bedroom main house next to brand new bathroom with the Family sleeping retreat across courtyard Queen bed and own bathroom, with full sized King sized bunks in separate adjoining room. For those where a good nights sleep is all important, the beds are the same luxuriant type as those found in Westin Hotels. You'll also find a new gourmet kitchen with everything you need, with lounge/dining seamlessly flowing onto the new enlarged deck via sliding doors.

Local Attractions

From the house, nature and bush abounds, there is excellent bird watching with both rainforest birds and birds of prey, you can even feed the local family of kookaburras by hand. Quolls and koalas are also native to the area and can often be seen towards sunset.

Children and pets are most welcome and are well catered for in our relaxed beach cottage, there is lots to keep them entertained with swimming, surfing, fabulous snorkeling in the marine reserve and rock pool exploring. Then there are the sand dunes at Treachery and Lighthouse beaches, rocks to climb and great biking through the national park. Adults can enjoy the surf or lake fishing, take walks along the beach or relax under the trees on the grass.

Foster with its many restaurants and amenities is only half an hour away - grab a table by the water and some seafood for lunch at the fishing co-op while you are there

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs more work and love to make it a great stay I've stayed at a lot of accommodation on Stayz and this is the first place which has been quite disappointing with the description and images not quite matching expectations. The place was renovated sometime ago, and requires some work with little things that would have made the stay much more comfortable. We stayed with friends, so the separate bedroom to the main house didn't work well, not because it was separate, but adjoining the bunk room meant that you had to walk into this room to access the bathroom and and those who needed access into the bunk room needed to go through the bedroom which didn't allow privacy. This meant if you were to wash your hands after using the bathroom, the sink was in the bunk room interrupting anyone sleeping in there. We stayed during a time where it was quite warm, to our annoyance the only cooling system was either leaving the windows or screen doors open, with screens requiring to be replaced (small holes and torn throughout letting mosquitoes in) or old floor fans. There was no ceiling fans and we couldn't stay in the house in the late afternoon as the house got hot and stuffy even if we left everything open. I can't imagine what the place will be like in the full heat of summer! We were lucky the nights were cool otherwise it would have been very uncomfortable to sleep. The balcony and the small courtyard had no shade, so an umbrella or some kind of shelter or awning is required as sitting in either places meant you will most likely get heatstroke if you sit around too long. There was some positives to the place, the kitchen was suitable with good appliances and the beds were comfortable. There was no wi-fi but it was good to get away from distractions. The place is quite close to the beach and near the only little coffee cart in Seals Rocks. The owners were also pleasant to deal with. Overall with a little bit more love this place could be fantastic as the sunset over the hills were quite spectacular.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cosy and clean family place! We had a fabulous stay and enjoyed being surrounded by trees and beautiful nature close to the beach. The house was clean, cosy with all we needed. The layout with bedrooms and bathroom each in two different parts of the house was a perfect fit for us. Plus whales in the bay every day!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Surfing seal No contact from owner to let us know how to get in found the keys in meter box had to walk passed the overflowing sewer pipe to get them. No sheets or pillow cases or towels would have been nice to know before arriving felt like we were camping. No hair dryer, fire was nice but no matches to light the bloody thing we have left a box in the kitchen for the next people. Main problem was we rang sent email and text and to this day still no contact.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great house and great location We loved our stay at the Surfing Seal! Great little house for a family with kids, beautiful view amongst the trees. The house was clean, had everything we needed and was perfectly located, quick walking distance to the two main beaches. Highly recommend this place!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic property We really enjoyed our stay at the surfing seal. Beautiful outlook from the deck onto a Jungle like valley. The interior of the property has been really well renovated with a great relaxed atmosphere. The additional building holding the extra bedrooms is really close to the house and makes the place perfect for families too. Proximity to the shop and beaches was great also.
