“Fantastic Stay”
Reviewed October 24, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

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!

“What an amazing time we had there...”
Reviewed April 3, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

What an amazing time we had there...
Kookaburra house is a great spot in Sydney and Coogee is by far the best beach. You've got everything you need. Shops, cafés, restaurants, pubs... Amazing beach and Rock pool for kids, playground.... If you've got kids you will be more than happy to have everything within 5 mn walks. Also you can reach downtown in half an hour with the bus...
The flat is well equipped, all you need is there. Really good Internet connection, TV, perfect kitchen. Big enough for 4 people (2 couples or 2 adults + kids).
The backyard is really nice also, where you can relax and have a drink and there is also an outdoor shower to get the sand off after the beach.....
And last but not least, the hosts. It's really nice to feel at home after a trip of 24 hours, and thanks to them this is what we felt as soon as we arrived. Always there for you, anything you need they will find a solution, and always with a smile.
To be honest, do not hesitate for one second, I know Sydney and the eastern suburbs very well, you will have a really good time there for a fair price.

“Lovely getaway”
Reviewed March 23, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Had a lovely couple of nights here while at a conference in Randwick. Perfect location for our needs. Really enjoyed the character of the apartment; cuppa in the sun room in the morning enjoying the sunrise, and a bubbly on the terrace in the evening. Tracey has made sure every detail has been attended to and made us feel very welcome. And the place was spotless! My only suggestion would be to have slightly firmed pillows. :) Thanks Tracey, see you again soon

“A beautiful gem in a prime location”
Reviewed January 12, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

My husband and I and our three children aged 5,7 and 9 stayed here for three nights so we could enjoy the beach aspect of Sydney and re visit old haunts and reminisce about our time in Coogee when travelling many years ago!. The apartment is beautifully decorated as you can see from the photos and it was a complete pleasure to stay here. We opted to spend most of our time during our stay on the beach but the communal outdoor areas are beautifully set up. Tracy and her partner were very hospitable and helpful. A great stay. Thank You.

“Fantastic, spacious apartment in central beach location.”
Reviewed December 27, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

We are a family of 5 (3 kids aged 6-12) and have had a brilliant holiday in the Kookaburra beach house. The apartment is really spacious and comfortable, with everything you could possibly want. The newly renovated communal back yard is lovely, a relaxing spot to eat or relax and read a book. The beach house is in a great location both for the beach and the restaurants/shops. I'd unreservedly recommend the beach house. Thank you Tracy.

I had a very relaxing stay at Kookaburra Beach House. The apartment is beautiful and so tastefully decorated. I felt very comfortable and at home and it was good to know Tracy and her family were there if I needed anything and they were all so friendly and helpful.
The apartment has everything you could need, I entertained on a few occasions as I have family and friends living near by. The location is so convenient to shops, beach, restaurants and the amazing Coogee to Bondi walk.
I would highly recommend Kookaburra Beach House and I hope to visit again in the future.
