Coogee is a friendly place that travels to its own time affected more by the weather (it's a tide thing) than the executive pitch in the City twenty minutes away. The human tide varies greatly as well depending on football encampments or other such events. But all that aside people are friendly and the staff at the Medina are too. My wife and I have stayed a few times over the years, and as we tend to book late we have been dissapointed a couple of times and stayed in a couple of other places around the little Bay. We continue to come back.
We have been coming mostly as a family, booking two room suites. Each has varied and each has had its better and so-so points. The good being the well appointed kitchen and the two bathrooms and good space for four (and even five). The good being that there is every convenience within a minute of the front door. And we use the car park - its great.
The beach is also a great meeting place - there are BBQs so we have on two occassions bought sufficient for a simple repast at the shop across from the front door and cooked on the beach BBQs. The last time we catered a party of 20 family and friends, and it was easy.
We have undertaken the walk to Bondi as well a couple of times - It's a must do.
The units are not readily little child friendly but we make do - we remove the caustic from under the sink and laundry to a higher cupboard - we supply a few toys - we turn the TVs off at the wall (turns off the blue light) - a bit of "first impression" cleaning damage to the paintwork which we hope is fixed next time - we hit the beach quickly.
And then there is the Coogee Cheer. This will affect everyone differently. On Friday and Saturday nights the younger ones hit the Coogee Bay Hotel - at closing (around 3) they sing and ply their way home up Coogee Bay Road. They are back packers and others having a good time. We have done it too. It always wakes us - we smile and roll over back to sleep.
We'll be back again soon.
