Here are some reviews, all of them awarding the maximum 5 stars, that have been left for this home on a well known Australian website.
Wow.. This house is Amazing!
I was lucky enough to stay at this house a week ago with a group of friends... & all I can say is WOW!. The Views are Amazing, The House is Beautiful & the owner is a pleasure to deal with. The house is in a great location.. a short 5 min stroll to Coogee Beach, a 40 minute picturesque walk to Bondi Beach or a short cab ride to Sydney Harbour. If you're looking for beautiful house in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs then this is the one! Thankyou for letting us stay in your beautiful home Michael, we will be back!
The house was a good size & in a great location for the beach and transport. The views are lovely and it has a very well equipped kitchen. Michael was very helpful with our booking process.
This place is a must. I wouldn't think twice. We didn't want to leave. The view is amazing, the house was spotless and it had everything you could think of. Even the location was amazing! Close to everything. The owner was also so sweet, he even left us a bottle of champaign and chocolates. It was a holiday to remember!!
Brilliant property, fantastic position
We thought the property was everything that was written about it and more. There was more than enough room for 8 adults, and 4 children and the position of the property overlooking Gordon's Bay and within a few minutes walk of Coogee was great for us all. Michael, the owner was most helpful. Thank you Michael.
Could not have asked for better!!
Wow, thank you Michael for a truly memorable stay. Ample space for 10 adults for our get together and those views...spectacular! The home was well equipped to cater all our needs and the kitchen offered every implement necessary for a large group. We WILL be back.
Great family holiday
Immaculate presentation. Great for family gathering - even toys, cot etc for children. Pool and beach used a lot in heat. Owner friendly and considerate of guests.
Everything was absolutely perfect!
We had a wonderful time here, no complaints whatsoever.
An enjoyable house for everyone
5 Generations from 3 months to 93 years decamped themselves in this spacious home for a week. Enough space for everyone [11 adults and 2 children], with direct access to the coast path and within minutes of Coogee Centre. Michael, the owner was extremely helpful. We could possibly return again. Many thanks Michael for making our stay very enjoyable.
Amazing, unmatchable location, perched on the cliff overlooking Gordons Bay, yet still maintaining easy access to the water through the back gate. This was the perfect place for us to spend a week with our family - kayaking, snorkelling, swimming or just taking in the view. Great orientation by the owner, and easily contactable whenever we needed to clarify anything. We would happily recommend this place for anyone wanting a bit of Sydney beachside luxury living.
Our most recent visit was the second time we have used the "Pumpkin" and it will not be our last. Michael is an excellent host and the home is a perfect venue for our Sydney based Board meeting.
Our stay in this beautiful, spacious and meticulously maintained property was a perfect way to enjoy Sydney's spectacular coastline in and around Coogee. A superbly comfortable residence, located in a quiet cul de sac, it was an ideal location to relax and unwind with all creature comforts on hand. With Sydney's picturesque coastal walk on it's doorstep and Coogee and Clovelly Beaches within easy walking distance, it was easy to access a myriad of cafes, restaurants and shops.
We rented this beautiful house for the weekend of my daughters wedding. Grandparents, parents, siblings, cousins all stayed. There was so much room, we were never under each others feet! On arrival we met Michael who showed us around and made us feel very welcome. The night before the wedding, we had a lovely BBQ on the balcony, played pool, had a few 'quiet' drinks. The downstairs self contained area was absolutely perfect for the bridal party to get ready - hairdresser, makeup etc.- yet away from prying eyes! The professional photos taken of the bride in the house are unbelievable! To top the weekend off, we were able to unwind the day after the wedding - lazing about the pool and generally relaxing! Highly recommend this house - the pictures don't do it justice!
Exactly what we were looking for!
This holiday house was everything we wanted and more and was exactly as advertised. It was the perfect place to get the family together to celebrate my father in laws 60th birthday. We enjoyed family dinners overlooking Gordon's Bay, everyone enjoyed our own private access to the beach and famous Bondi to Coogee walk. The house was neat and tidy and full of entertainment options. The fridge & pantry came stocked with the basics to get us started on our holiday, which was very thoughtful. Michael was a pleasure to deal with and I will be happily recommending his property to anyone wanting a large holiday home on the water to spend quality time with family or friends in the Sydney area. We all had an amazing time and the stay is something we'll all remember for years to come.
House with spectacular view
We're a family with 4 children from Malaysia. We stayed at Michael's house for 5 nights. Our children liked it because of the ample space, they could play hide and seek or just laze around after a tiring day of sightseeing. Me and my husband enjoyed especially the walk in the park, which was just at the doorstep from the backdoor! Most of the nights, we and the kids would take a slow walk through the park to the restaurants nearby. Which was a nice 20 minutes walk, with beautiful seaview, it's quiet and safe. Oh I must mention this - we saw from the master bedroom, whales from a distance jumping out of the water! We didn't mind paying for the view, not at all. I mentioned this to Michael too - his is a house with a million dollar view! All in all, thumbs up, in every way. Last comment - very well maintained house.
If you are looking and considering staying here and your dates are available - book now or you might miss out. You wouldn't know what you missed but if you did you would be sad. For a group stay it just doesn't get any better. Awesome is the word that was bantered around constantly over the week we were there.
5 out of 5
The location of the house was superb, next to walks along the coast, beaches and near CBD. Facilities of house was great with something to suit all ages, eg swimming pool, trampoline and pool table. House was very clean and well looked after. Owner was very prompt with responding to queries and any issues. Will certainly rent this house again should we holiday in Sydney again.
We had an amazing week stay at this beautiful home for mum's 60th birthday. The views over Gordon's Bay were superb. It was so nice to wake up to see the sun rising over the bay. The location was great. A short stroll into town, and public transport. The house had enough space for the 12 of us to be comfortable. Thanks Michael for opening up your home to us.
We had a wonderful time at this prestige property. Thanks to the owner!
The house was excellent. We were a group of 9 adults. The house was in very good conditions and every time I talked to Michael (the owner) regarding small issues about the house, he promply fixed the problem. The location is great, the views from the house are marvellous and the surroundings fantastic. The 6 nights we spent there were very good.
Superb I position
Eight senior males enjoyed a week away from home in this magnficent property.Well maintained ,superb location,beats a hotel room any day.Recommended.
We had a great time in this beautiful house. The views are overwhelming - much better than the photos. Inside, the house is very roomy and comfortable and there was nothing left wanting. Its a very peaceful location, so partying on through the night is not a good idea. But if you like chilling out with a bunch of family or friends, then this place is perfect. we loved it.
Large Family Friendly
We had a need to get a large house to get a large family in. Our host Michael's house ticked all the boxes. The kids could retreat down stairs for music and peace, the adults could share the middle floor for relaxation and peace and bed rooms were on the top floor. The house has every thing. Kitchen to feed a large family, pool table, piano, pool, 2 minutes to the beach, a paved walkway around spectacular Sydney coast line,views, views ,views. from every floor. Ample beds, 5 minutes walk to the Coggee shops and buses. 30 minute bus to Sydney CBD and hosts who are only 5 minutes away if you need anything. When a family shares the costs it becomes very reasonable.
Absolutely Stunning House in Coogee
As the title says, it's an amazing home with million $ views. The pictures don't do it justice, it's 10times better in real life. HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend staying there. Michael and Misha are a pleasure to deal with. I want to move in permanently.
Lovely bay house for family stay with kids. Mins walk to shop and beach. 5 star everything.
This house and location is so much better than the photos suggest. Everything about it and our stay exceeded expectations and the owner, Michael, was very helpful and kind without being intrusive. Best holiday ever.
A small group of school friends had a short stay in October 2013 and the house was just perfect. Apart from the house being absolutely immaculate, the location was great and the view spectacular.The owner of the House was extremely helpful and informative. We will definitely book this house again. Great Times, Perfect and Affordable.
I rented this beautiful property for a team of UK suppliers who were visiting Sydney for a trade show for a week and I wanted something nicer than a hotel so they could really appreciate the beauty of Sydney's beaches. The house is stunning; amazing location and in a great condition and fully equipped with everything you could need (apart from maybe a hairdrier!) All bedroom are of a decent size and the kitchen/sitting room area has plenty of space. Would book again. Thank you Michael
I booked this beautiful property for a international, highly regarded speaker who was holding events in Sydney, and his crew.
The house absolutely lived up to every expectation - it was immaculate and had the most outstanding view, it was breath-taking! The house is even better than it looks on the website, and every detail has been attended to - even down to the welcome gift hamper that Michael generously and thoughtfully provides.
The house is well set-out and spacious enough for a group to stay in comfort without being in each other's space. The amenities are first rate, and is in a quiet area which was a bonus as the crew were working hard and needed to relax at the end of the day.
The proximity to the city was excellent and anything we needed was just a minute away in town.
I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a five-star, luxury home that has everything you need, excellent attention to detail, and warm and thorough customer service from Michael.
We had a great weekend at this house. The rooms were great with lovely views to the bay also nice (URL HIDDEN) layout is good for a large group,there is plenty of room at the snooker table which ajoins the large TV lounge . The kitchen dinning area has a great view and a warm sunny position good for slow Sunday morning breakfasts. Easy to walk down to Coogee( 20mins) we also walked to Bondi via the coast (1 1/2 hours) . There a one way streets around the area so check out directions clearly before you arrive.
Thanks Michael for letting us rent your house we had an amazing week, what a beautiful house with breath taking views they are actually more amazing in real life then the photos. It was such a relaxing family holiday. Most highly recommend!!!
Great spot close to airport and city. Plenty of room for 12 people...didn't even notice the mother-in-law for the 7 days we stayed. The price was very reasonable considering the quality of the place and its prime location.
Accommodation in town for our group would have been much dearer.
Beautiful views, cliff top walks or runs and plenty of food and grocery stores nearby. Easy parking
Exquisite property. Private secluded and with Million $ coastal views. You couldn't find anything superior. Highly recommended.
A fabulous house in a fantastic location perfectly suited for the family occasion. We, 5 adults & 4 teenagers, arrived to a warm and courteous reception from the owner and left after two glorious weeks to very much of the same. In between that time we enjoyed what can only be described as the most wonderful holiday in a picture perfect residence and beautiful area of Sydney. The house met and bettered expectations from the luxury of the home itself to the amenities and fittings which were described in the brochure. The owner Michael was on hand at all times and was kind enough to pop in occasionally to make sure all was well. The downside was that 2 weeks just wasn't enough...
Wow what a house,perfect for families the house and views were amazing pictures don't do it justice absolute luxury my family were amazed. Michael was helpful with everything with out interrupting our privacy would recommend this house to anyone wanting an outstanding holiday.
We were 3 families with kids staying at the property for a 3 week holiday in Sydney. The house worked out perfectly for us! Plenty of space and gorgeous views. It was a great place to bring kids too since it was plenty of stuff to keep them entertained in and outside the house. Everything you need is walking distance from the house. Last but not least great location for those fresh morning walks/runs along the coastal walk!
Thanks to Michael for being so accommodating.
What a great place to end our holiday with our guests/family from Sweden!
The house is as good (if not better) than the pictures shows. We only had to call on the host once (to get the wireless broadband going) but he was more than happy to help, thanks Michael.
Plenty of room for 6adult+5kids, perfect with the "flat" downstairs for my parents.
Not sure if the kids or the adults enjoyed the pool/spa most.
I truly recommend a BBQ on the deck after the swim - the views are stunning!
We had a magical week long stay here in November leading up to our wedding. It was the perfect venue for a group and to wow our international wedding guests. Gordon's bay is our favorite spot in Sydney and this house is positioned to see it in all's it's glory with a path to the beach right at the back of the property. We loved the enteraining and pool areas. The house had everything we could ask for and more...Hollywood.
."Michael, just a note to thank you for allowing us to use your magnificent house for our recent board meeting. The venue was perfect and all facilities are first class. We look forward to our next visit to Sydney and hope you will again allow us the privilege of using the propoerty. Peter Frewin"
Peter, January 2013
"Our family (6 adults/4 children) stayed @ Waterfront to celebrate 3 generations of birthdays. It was the ideal location for all. Stunning views, one minute to beach, close to cafes and shops, and perfect for walks/jogs. The accommodation was extremely spacious and comfortable, and the kids loved the pool. We had a wonderful, truly memorable long weekend."
Carolyn, December 2012
"Everything that was claimed on the web about Waterfront was surpassed ,from piano, pool, the view over Gordon's Bay to general facilities and ambience. We were a group of 11 adults staying here for my daughter's wedding in Coogee and the owner was more than helpful! All of us were overwhelmed by the beauty and comfort of Waterfront and the relaxing spacious rooms allowed us all to be together without being on top of each other. The only problem at the end of a week was that we all wanted to stay longer."
James, November 2012
"Our family, 8 adults and 3 children, stayed here for 6 days on a recent visit to Sydney...and this place is first class!! It is everything and more that was stated on the website. It is palatial, well located and very well equipped...we couldn't have asked for more. The owner/host was most accommodating and left us alone to enjoy our stay. It worked so well for all age groups as there are very separate sleeping arrangements if required, games area, pool, spa, BBQ area, all within close distance to shops, swimming, walking trails etc. The cost is fair and represents good value too...you can't go wrong if you need a large house which suits quite a large group of people!!"
Geoff, October 2012
"The house is excellent. The whole experience was just amazing. Highly recommended. The service is unreal! "
Fouad, October 2012
"What can I say except absolutely fantastic stay. This was made possible by the home being exactly as shown on website and by the host being so accommodating and helpful. We have stayed at various holiday homes around Australia and NZ and this would have to have been the best one yet. Thanks very much "

"This is a beautiful rental house in a great area. There were 6 of us staying, including three children, 16, 11, and 9. The view is awesome, the beds comfortable, and the house is well equipped. It is a short ten minute walk from Coogee beach (with restaurant, groceries, and bus connections to the CBD). It is just above Gordon Bay, which has an underwater nature trail for scuba or snorkelling). It is a 75 minute walk along the shore to Bondi Beach. Michael is helpful and accomodating. We have rented beautiful homes in a number of countries and this was right up there."

"We had a great stay at the property which had everything we needed, and more, for a family visit to Sydney to attend a wedding. The kids loved the trampoline and we all really enjoyed jacuzzi and pool sessions. We could not have found better and it was a pleasure dealing with the owner. The location was superb for views and for access to local facilities and transport to Sydney. We are left now with fond memories of a great holiday. "
Barry, August 2012
"The property was very comfortable and well maintained. Beautiful view and excellent jogging grounds and connectivity to beaches. Michael predicted our needs as we arrived late into the night, which was very thoughtful of him. We were worried that it was a scam at first, but we are glad Michael put to rest our doubts."
Caroline, July 2012
"This was a holiday we won't forget! 12 girlfriends visited from Qld for a winter long weekend and this home was everything we wanted and more. Perfect for a wine in the sun on the balcony, preparing a big feast in the kitchen, chatting on the couch while we watched storms roll in over the ocean or sneaking off for an afternoon nap. This home is right on top of one of Sydney's most stunning walks and so close to the airport. The owner was fantastic to deal with and made us feel perfectly welcome in his multi-million dollar home. We can't wait to come back!"

Accommodated our adult children and partners and friends for a special get together extremely well. Appreciated that it is a home not a venue."
Juliet, November 2009
•"I can not give the house enough praise. It was one of the best holidays, if not the best holiday, ever, that I have had and I would really like to make it a yearly if not twice a year holiday staying there! The location and view has to be one of the very best in the world, without exaggeration, and the house is itself is brilliant in design and impeccable in every little detail. Just nothing wanting. We were able to totally relax and enjoy great days and nights with our friends and family. That's what a great holiday is about for me and the house really made it for us."

***** FIVE STAR ***** THE PERFECT RENTAL HOUSE IN THE BEST LOCATION WITH BREATH TAKING VIEWS !!!
My husband & i had our wedding in January 2012 in Sydney. We had many family & friends who were coming from abroad & It was also the first time our families were meeting.
So we wanted a large house in a great area in Sydney that both of our families could share & also get to know each other.
The stunning 6 bed house looking over Gorden's Bay, Coogee was everything that we wanted plus more. The website was great & the owner was so helpful & very easy to communicate with.
We had the best 10 days celebrating New Years & our Wedding celebrations. Our families absolutely LOVED IT & said it was THE PERFECT HOUSE !
My husband & I highly recommend this property ? It made the week of our WEDDING so special !!

"It would be difficult for anyone to find a more exceptional rental home while staying in the Sydney area. This home was very clean and well equipped. The property owner was very concerned for our well being while we were there. This house has it all....great beaches, shopping, public transportation nearby. It is not missing a thing. You won't be disappointed. The Mendenhall's Michigan, USA "

"The house is well located to the local beaches and shops. There is a good bus service too.
The house was ideal for our family group of 6 adults and 3 children. There was plenty of space throughout and beautiful views out the back. The proerty manager was incredibly helpful and professional.The house provided all the essentials we needed and even a selection of games for the kids.
It was a week of pure luxury!!

"This is great house in an excellent location. A group of us traveled to Sydney on business and had the privilege of staying at the Coogee house for about a month. Everyone regularly ran/walked the scenic path between Coogee and Bondi. Bars and food were in walking distance and driving to downtown Sydney and Bondi Junction was not a problem. I hope to have the opportunity to stay there again in the future."
