Come stay with me in my Coogee Beach Home. It is convenient to Buses, Beach, Shops, cafes, UNSW, POW Hospital, Randwick. Very chilled atmosphere and I love meeting new people.

The space

Bright and sunny room within a typical retro 80's style unit block. Your room is furnished with a hanger, tall boy, bedside drawers and double bed (max 2 guests).

Guests have a private room and shared bathroom with host. Kitchen, laundry and free WiFi are also available for use. You can also use the pool within the complex.

I am actively employed within the production side of film and television. When home, I'm relatively social and will happily share a wine and conversation if desired. I love sharing local knowledge with guests when required.

Love the beach? Love fine food? Love convenience? You'll love Funky Munky's Beach House. Quiet neighbourhood walking distance to all local attractions.

Three city bus routes accessible within a 3 minute walk, approximately 30 mins travel time by bus to city. Only 15 to 20 minutes to the airport by Taxi/car. Easy access to coastal walks where you can discover Gordon's Bay (great snorkelling), Clovelly (family friendly), Bronte (celebrity hangout), Tamarama (aka Glamourama) and Bondi (Surfing).

So why Funky Munky Beach House? Friends call me Munky, and over the years I've been given lots of funky little munky's as gifts. Don't worry, they're subtle and you'll be lucky to see them.

Guest access

Guests will have access to all area of the apartment except for my bedroom.

Interaction with guests

My schedule is very unpredictable but I can be as available as you like me to be. I generally leave guests to get on with their day but if you are home and I happen to be cooking dinner you may get lucky with a home cooked meal and a bottle of wine to share. I do love a chat!

Had a great time staying at Serena's, the place is exactly as described and Serena is very helpful and knowledgeable about the Sydney area. The house was easy to stay in and everything about the house is explained in the manual that she leaves for guests. Close to beach and 20 minute walk from University. Lost of places to eat and shop within walking distance.

Serena was amazing, super welcoming and her place is in a great spot to explore Coogee, Randwick and Clovelly on foot. The room is big and clean, and her apartment is really homely. I was left alone to get on with my own work and out-of-work adventures when I wanted, but Serena was always there for an evening drink and chat on the balcony if I fancied it. I even got dinner made for me on a couple occasions, and was invited to a Australian film premiere on day three (plus after party)! Best AirBnb experience I've had by far :) Couldn't have got a better experience of Sydney to begin my stay here.

Response from Serena:
To be fair Joe made dinner for me too and what goes around comes around. I do like cooking when I have time but don't expect it. And he lucked out on the film premiere and party.

Serena has been an absolutely amazing host. Already when I arrived I had a little welcome pack providing me with all information I could need. The room is nice and bright with cute little touches. The area is quiet but in walking distance to the beach and Coogee seafront as well as bus stops into Sydney. I really enjoyed my little chats with Serena and generally felt more like a flatmate than just a guest which made my stay even more enjoyable. I have absolutely no hesitations recommending her place.

Serena's apartment was ideally situated for me during my stay in Coogee. Serena, had loads of information, maps etc available and was very helpful re buses and local information The house handbook is very comprehensive. The pool was also fabulous to use during the hotter days.

Serena was a brilliant host, making me feel very welcome in her home. She is very knowledgeable about the area, local transport etc. The room is light, the bed comfy with a good mattress. Linen and towels (including for going to the beach) are included, which was very handy. Kitchen is well equipped, including a brillian toaster/grill. I had a great time staying at the Funky Munky Beach House!

I love movies, the beach, great food, good wine and conversation. I've grown up in a hospitality family and want my guests to make themselves at home. if you want to hang out and chat, you're more than welcome; or if you just want to hang on your own, that's fine by me. I've opened my home to AirBnB guests as I would have loved this service and hospitality on my journey around the world!
