Kookaburra Beach House is ideally located in the Coogee area of Sydney. Close to excellent transport, buses, trains and ferries. The apartment itself is well equipped and decorated and the beds are really comfortable.
Tracy and Gail are the owners and really are fabulous hosts. Nothing is too much trouble for them and I can honestly say that they made us feel more than welcome.
I highly recommend a stay at Kookaburra Beach House...you won't regret it!
Nice unit with everything we needed. Good location but so many steps to go up & down each time you go out. Tried to limit our outings due to this. Actually had a fall on steps (luckily near bottom) and broke ankle.
We stayed at Kookaburra Beach House for 17 days and absolutely did not want to leave. Our accommodation had so much space and was fully equipped and spotlessly clean. There are shops, bars and cafes 2 minutes walk away and the amazing Coogee Beach is literally a 5 minute stroll to the bottom of the road. We also had use of the lovely outdoor spaces for BBQ, relaxing and eating, There is also outdoor space for drying washing, not to mention the 'hot' outdoor shower which was perfect to wash off the sand from the beach!
The accommodation is perfectly placed to explore Sydney as the bus stops at the bottom of the road and there are regular buses to Sydney harbour or to Bondi (if you don't fancy the coastal walk to Bondi). You just need to buy an Opal Card from the local newsagent and top it up with AUS $ to travel by bus, train or ferry.
Our hosts Dejan and Tracey, live at the property and are there if you need them but not intrusive at all. Nothing is too much trouble, I don't think they could ever use the word, "No".
We only met them a few times but we felt we left as friends. They are very special and make you feel very welcome in their fabulous property., Such a perfect place to stay.
We had a wonderful week at kookaburra guesthouse. The apartment is very well presented and was very clean. We were able to use both the front and back gardens and Tracy and her family were very welcoming and helpful. The garden is a great setting for a BBQ and there is plenty of outside space (there is also lots of outside cutlery etc that Tracy was happy for us to use).
We travelled from the UK with 2 young children and there was a good highchair which was easy to clean! We used our own travel cot (but they can provide one). There are quite a few stairs up to the apartment which makes bringing the pushchair up hard work but we left ours out on the front terrace which worked well. In terms of layout one bedroom has a door opening to the garden and the other is by the kitchen/living rooms. We put the kids in the latter so they were not by a door, they slept very well there so I think the rooms are pretty soundproof!
It's in walking to distance to playparks, beach, supermarket and good bus links to the centre of Sydney. The kitchen is well equipped with childrens cups/bowls etc.
We had a fantastic stay and will definitely stay there again if we are in Australia again!
