“Great location”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

4 guys on a 5 day golf trip. It ticked all the boxes for us. Great location with easy walk to beach and local restaurants/pubs etc. Free parking included. Unit itself was pretty well furnished, clean, Foxtel, plenty of room and comfortable beds. Lounge furniture not very comfortable and not a lot of supplies in terms of cooking utensils, crockery etc. It served its purpose pretty well for us as we were never going to spend much time there. Would I stay there again? Yes for another golf trip with the boys.

My colleague and I stayed at Coogee View, which is partitioned between a central building at the south end of Coogee beach and a beachfront "apartment" facility at the north end. The latter is where we stayed. Our two bedroom apartment has a sitting room with LG flat-screen TV, kitchen, dining room table, desk, nice bedroom (large bed, my friend stays there), not-so-nice bedroom (two twin beds, mine) and two bathrooms. One of these is in the nice bedroom, the other across from the kitchen. There is also a laundry facility with a washer and a dryer (the latter is mounted upside-down, which is a curious sight) and a patio.

A very nice place with a spectacular view (Apartment #1, on second floor, see attached picture) of the sea, which is a great stepping-off point for a run along the beach or a swim, and maybe 200 meters from the bus stop from which you can go everywhere. It is relatively quiet here, except that weather seems to occasionally put us on the flight path for the airport.

Being scientists, internet is essential for us, and here one might find some dissatisfaction with this place. In the office, we were told that there was no internet -- which is true in the sense that the hotel does not have a wireless network -- but we were lucky enough to get a USB internet hub that connects to a cellular network. This, however, is pricey (about $100 for 4 GB of data), so this is definitely *not* the place to stay if you want to watch Netflix in the evenings and upload thousands of pictures for your friends to see.

Recently my family stayed here to celebrate a special occassion in Sydney. The size of the 3 bedroom apartment was terrific and the location excellet. The negatives were the state of the carpet and curtains. The mould on the curtains was disgraceful and I think a health risk and the stained carpet needs to be pulled up and replaced urgently.

Room Tip: Try and get a waterview and as this hasn't got a lot of floors ask for one up high.

I booked a 3 bedroom Coogee View apartment for my family so that we could attend a wedding at Coogee Beach around 4 months ago and from reading the reviews I was a little skeptical about the place. I have to say though it was fabulous! We were in room 905 and it looked like it had been done up and we had a fabulous view of both Coogee Beach as well as "downtown Coogee". The rooms were big and we had 6 adults staying and plenty of room to move around as well. The bed was comfortable and plenty of pillows. Security was very tight. Public transport right at your front door and a 3 minute walk to cafes, restaurants and the Coogee Beach Hotel and 100 meters to the beautiful Coogee Beach. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Thank you for your lovely comments and recommendation of our apartments at The Coogee View. They are very spacious and roomy and great for families that are in town for functions or just a lovely getaway on Coogee Beach. We look forward to having you return when you choose to come back to Coogee. With warmest regards, AEA Management.

We stayed in a beach front 3 bedroom apartment for a girls weekend away. After looking at the AEA website, we were really excited about the luxurious looking apartment. Unfortunately the only part of the apartment that looked like the photos we had seen was the view of beautiful Coogee Beach. Everything else about it was disappointing! Carpet was extremely stained and whilst it had obviously been vacuumed, it just looked filthy because it had so many stains. The beds were clean and comfy but the bedroom furniture (bedside tables, chest of drawers etc) were very dated and worn. The bathrooms were clean but in desperate need of a revamp. The whole apartment needed reprinting. The kitchen was basic, clean but again very worn and dated. Especially the cheap lino floor-scratched, faded, stained. The television had Foxtel channels which was good, but to watch free to air channels, or a DVD you basically required a university degree in hi-fi operation!
The balcony was huge and the view spectacular. The outdoor furniture was FILTHY! We had to wipe it down with warm soapy water and cloth before we could sit on it. Overall, not what one would expect after viewing the pictures of these apartments on AEA website. And certainly not worth the money. If you can get a really discounted rate through last minute booking then it would be ok but so not book these apartments expecting luxury. They are far from it!!

Thank you for your recent comments regarding your stay back in 2012.
Our 2 bedroom apartments are lovely and spacious and we always offer free undercover parking for every stay. Though our housekeeping staff provide items for bathrooms and laundries, these can run out and we are always to happy to assist and replenish for you.
I am unaware of your heating issue at the time, but if reported to the office, we would have maintenance or a technician repair as soon as they could.
We hope to assist you in the future and look forward to you coming back to stay with AEA at The Coogee View apartments.
With warm regards
AEA Management.

We stayed in a 2BR apt with huge balcony and gorgeous view. It was impeccably clean. Couches and beds were very comfortable and exactly as advertised. Bus to Sydney stops at doorstep. It is right on beautiful Coogie Beach. Kitchen is fully equipped. We loved everything about it and were very glad we chose it. We could enjoy the beach and the lovely town of Coogie, but could be in Sydney with an easy bus ride. It was awesome and worth the money !
