Cupola, Lennox Head

Accommodation 5/5 Food 5/5

Overall 5/5

You may have strolled along Seven Mile Beach and wondered who is lucky enough to live in the apartment above the delightful Shelter restaurant in Lennox. Well, there is good news - now you can enjoy the space whilst having a short staycation, as Troy Noonan and the superb management of Shelter have created Cupola.

This cozy two bedroom apartment sits directly across from the beach with its veranda and wide windows letting you savour every moment from the rising sun, to the evening stars or simply watching surfers catch a wave, dolphins at play or, in-season, whales going past. Heaven.

The space

The apartment, recently and tastefully renovated, features two bedrooms with queen size beds, a lounge area with lush velvet couches, a fully equipped kitchen and an excellent bathroom featuring a terrific rain shower. If you are returning from the beach there is also an outdoor shower by the back entrance.

With soft textiles and a terracotta colour palette, it’s a lovely little nest for a few relaxing days, or more. A big wall mounted TV in the lounge area, wi-fi and washing machine completes the picture and of course, the highlight is the deck with panoramic ocean views across the road. An added bonus is you can bring your pet. 


You can cook for yourself or indulge in the award-winning Shelter restaurant underneath. Shelter is one of the Northern Rivers’ finest restaurants - consistently good and now under the supervision of new Michelin starred chef Cameron Irving. Wander down for breakfast, lunch or dinner or have it delivered to your apartment. No stress here.

Cupola is a perfect retreat for visiting friends and relatives or just treat yourself to a staycation. The venue has also been used for the bride and groom after a private function at Shelter.

Prices start from around $450 a night and you need to book well in advance.
