    I have really enjoyed my time at Surfside my partner and I stayed here while searching for a place to rent. The people are lovely and the community feeling is so rare in Sydney that you instantly at home. Loving my stay 😁😁

    Very accessible by public transport, Coogee is the
    smaller, friendlier, more intimate version of Bondi
    Beach. Coogee is the only beach in the Eastern suburbs
    that does not have big waves, making it an excellent

    across the beach, has one of the biggest beer gardens
    in Australia and plenty of entertainment every night
    of the week. Be on the lookout for celebrity
