Mark and I travel a lot but when at home we will be in the upper duplex which will soon be launched as Haven Oceana. A magnificent 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom dwelling with breathtaking views of the ocean and Groper Island. Watch this space!

THE LOCATION - Haven Tropicana is a few minutes from the Emerald Beach highway turn off. Emerald Beach is situated on the north coast of NSW halfway between Brisbane and Sydney. A small beachside village adjacent to the Solitary Islands Marine Park where the temperate and tropical ocean species merge. It offers a beautiful safe swimming beach for families as well as an excellent surf beach break, along with a southern left-hand reef break. The headlands to the north and south of Emerald Beach, including the famous Look At Me Now Headland are nature reserves. You can walk for hours amongst the native fauna and flora including the local kangaroos that inhabit the headlands. The ocean water is pristine and brimming with fish life including pods of dolphins and seasonal whale migration.

Emerald Beach has a variety of excellent restaurants and cafes as well as an organic food store, milk bar, hairdresser and bottle shop. You are a 10 minute drive from Woolgoolga to numerous cafes, Woolworths, IGA and specialty stores. 7 minutes to Moonee Plaza and Coles etc and short 14 minute drive to Park Beach Plaza and Coffs Harbour, with its myriad of stores, speciality shops, cafes, bars etc. 15 minutes from Coffs Harbour Jetty and 20 minutes from Coffs Harbour Airport.


Use of your own private vehicle is recommended however there is a regular bus service that runs from Emerald Beach to Coffs Harbour, Moonee and Woolgoolga.

About Leesa Murray

Hi HomeAway and Stayz community we are a retired couple who love to travel. 2 years ago we packed up our busy lives in Sydney, sold up our house in exciting inner city Erskineville and untied the tether. Now we are back in Australia and living between the beautiful house we designed and built at Emerald Beach and our beloved Bellingen both on the mid north coast of NSW. We believe it is the very best part of the world! We love the life we live and try and live the life we love. The things that make us go 'hmmmm' are discovering amazing places and people on this little planet of ours, walking along the beach especially these extraordinary beaches at our very front door, hanging out with our wonderful kids and grandkids, designing and building houses, sculptures and jewellery. We are both big fans of music, art and food. In Sydney we ran a successful AirBnB called Humble Pie Cottage and Humble Pie House and prior to that the award winning Cocas Beach House at Emerald Beach. We truly enjoyed meeting all our fabulous guests from all over the world. The AirBnB community made it possible for us to travel through Asia and Europe and we had the best times staying in these AirBnB's. Please enjoy our Haven Tropicana it's been hand crafted and created with love and attention to detail.

This place is beautiful

Stayed 2 days during bad weather yet were perfectly happy in this amazingly stylish and well-equipped apartment. No views, but the fabulous coastal headland walking trails are a five minute walk away and there are several local eating options just as close.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review. We were delighted to have you as our guests. Please come again! I'm so sorry you struck bad weather. Haven Tropicana is advertised as garden views and yes we are very close to the beach, couple of minutes stroll not much more to the headlands.
