Overview

About the property

Ocean View Cottage has a great location set up above the street and is very close to the surfing beach. The house is beautifully presented, clean and well maintained, with views across to the beach, ocean and hinterland.

Accommodation is on the one level, although there are two flights of steps up to the house from the street. The living and dining areas are generous and a reverse cycle air-conditioner and fan will keep you comfortable. We have 2 bedrooms, 2 toilets and a shower as well as a large laundry with washing machine and ironing facilities for guest use.

The main bedroom has a queen size bed and the large second bedroom has twin beds and a foldout ottoman - it can comfortably accommodate up to 3 children or 2 adults. Each bedroom is fitted with a ceiling fan.

The fully-fenced rear garden is accessed through the tiled laundry. An outside shower is available to wash off sand and saltwater.

Our part-time manager uses the small completely separate flat on the lower level.

As well as the main surfing beach, there's a large leash-free area of the beach for dogs so you can book a holiday for the whole family!

Emerald Beach - quiet village atmosphere

Emerald Beach is a small village with two great restaurants, a pizzeria (great for the kids), general store, hairdresser, video store and bottle shop.

Supermarkets and larger shops are close by at Woolgoolga and Moonee, while Coffs Harbour is about 20km south.

Award-winning Surf St Cafe (formerly Saltwater Cafe and Restaurant) is a moment away, and has been recommended by the Good Food Guide for several years ("...a relaxed and stylish vibe..."). They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner (great for coffee), and being run by the original owners again. Open Wed - Sun.

Highly regarded "La Hacienda 101" has authentic mexican food, there is a great general store (with a good selection of DVDs and takeaway food), Pizza & Pasta restaurant and a bottle shop.

There is also a fabulous hole in the wall cafe (Wired for Coffee) open early 7 days - excellent coffee and well sourced cafe treats and produce (located on the main street between Hacienda 101 and the Pizza & Pasta restaurant).

Wayne, our part-time manager, is happy to advise and help during your stay, or you may like to email Chris if you want to know more about local attractions and activities before you book.

Aug 2018 update: please note that our neighbours are currently renovating. There is scaffolding up against their wall. Our view extends from the north of the beach to the hinterland, but the scaffolding is obscuring the southern end of the beach and there may be construction noise.

Amazing Views

  • 3 of 5

Fantastic views from this property but so many steep steps! Reasonably comfortable house, thankfully a great bed! Disappointed with the level of cleanliness in the bathroom, specifically around the toilet seats, bowl and hand-basin. This was grime that had been there for some time. Secure backyard for the dogs.

A simply wonderful view of the rolling waves on the beach from the deck...

  • 5 of 5

The unit is very large and has charming beach decor but it's all about the view from the deck...there are a difficult amount of steps to ground level and above from a steep driveway, however charming Wayne was more than helpful to carry up my bags and point out the way to the beach etc....the location is everything with the fabulous beach only 10 mins walk away and a 15 mins walk to see the kangaroos...

However there were no spare towels, just one per person and no soap at all...there is only 3 eating places at Emerald and we were fortunate that one was open. I would strongly recommend this cottage to travellers.

The single beds are very narrow and I would recommend getting a three quarter size bed in future and also have one soft pillow available..

Amazing

We never tire of staying at Ocean View Cottage. It's simply the perfect stopover for anyone with dogs. And the view is astounding ... the best in the Coffs area.
