About this listing
Just across the road from Coogee Beach, this sunlit apartment overlooks the ocean. Just a short stroll to shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. Enjoy Sydney’s healthy urban-beach lifestyle by the ocean and by the city.
The ocean is the constant backdrop to your stay as you are across the road from the beach!
Coogee offers a fabulous urbane coastal lifestyle with the beach and ocean pools so close and the city just a short drive, bike ride or bus trip away. The apartment is moments from restaurants, pubs, cafes, and convenience stores or just a short easy stroll to a grocery store/deli, supermarket (Woolworths), pharmacies, banks, post office, gym, gelato or clothing shops.
For academics or medical staff it is a short 2.9km, 8 minute bus ride or 15 minute walk to the University of NSW, Prince of Wales Hospital, or the Royal Women's Hospital.

Guests have the entire apartment to themselves and I interact as needed.
The coastal culture, cafes, restaurants and so close to the city.
This is truly the urban beach lifestyle! Coogee is an ideal beachside community with perfect Sydney living. Beach, ocean pools, parks, playgrounds, tennis courts, grocery store, supermarket, banks, post office, shopping arcade, pubs, bars restaurants and cafes are all a short walk away.
Located just 15 minutes from the airport there is a bus stop 50m from your door that will take you to the other beaches, the trains at Central Station, the ferry's at Circular Quay. Buses leave every 10-15 minutes and the city is a short 30 minute ride away so you have access to the small bars and restaurants of the CBD or ferrys at Circular Quay if you want to explore the Harbour.
Parking is on-street out front but with so much on offer within walking distance I would recommend leaving the car right where it is. There are also 3 GoGet cars parked in Coogee so car share/hire is an easy option.

The home was stunningly presented and Phil was extremely helpful. When we contacted him he responded straight away and was also great at the start of the rental process. A stunning home that we will no doubt be back to stay out!
I had a wonderful and pleasant stay at City and Coogee Beach living: Phil's listing gives a good impression of how nice his place is and everything worked perfectly (from coordinating the check in to answering questions during my stay).
I found it to be the perfect location for my stay and work visit and will love to come back some time. For anybody staying there I can really recommend the coastal walk from Coogee to Bondi (it is gorgeous).
We loved staying at Phil's, would definitely recommend if you're looking for a place to stay in Sydney. The apartment was clean, spacious and neat. The location was also peaceful and convenient, with many food and shops located within walking distance.
This was my 2nd stay @ Phil's. I love the location... Doesn't get much better than this. The coastal walkway is one of the most stunning beautiful walks you could ever take... Plz if you stay here... Do the walk. There's many great cafes just steps outside your door. Highly recommend this place!
The room was spacious and very well equipped, convenient for people who are staying longer term. The windows are facing directly to the beach. Some street noise since it is facing the road, but never bothered us.
The location was perfect with two bus stopes within 50 second walk. Very easy to find.
Phil was reachable and responsive for all our questions via text messages.
Phil’s room made our one-week in Sydney extra comfortable and special. We’ll definitely come back again.
Great apartment, very neat. Phil was easily contactable making for a very comfortable stay. Highly recommend!
This is a fantastic location and a beautiful apartment of a very generous size. Although I didn't meet Phil, he is very helpful and communicative. I would stay here again for sure. I loved it.

About the Host, Phil
I feel very lucky to live where I do so I am more than happy to let others enjoy such a great place to live. The lifestyle here is just so good with the ocean so close for swimming and the beach or coastal path for fitness. My seven-year old loves it too and we spend hours in our 'front yard'!
