Here's what some of our previous visitors say about their stay

“Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!”

This 2 bedroom apartment really is a gem! The apartment was immaculate, well presented and had all the modern cons my family needed. Check-in was seamless as the owners provided details for access and security. The owners are lovely, hospitable and welcoming who made our stay extra special. The location is quiet and secluded yet it is only two blocks back from Darby Street, Cooks Hill. The 2 bedrooms have very comfortable queen beds and media spaces with beautiful natural light. The kitchen and living area is gorgeous with all the modern cons. Bathroom and laundry are both brand new and all bed linen, bath towels and beach towels were provided (Newcastle Beach and Bar Beach just up the road). The owners have included a great range of items in the kitchen (organic teas/ condiments etc). There is a lovely courtyard with seating as well as a balcony from the living room however the apartment still is very private. We highly recommend this apartment to families with small children and also for business/corporate customers that prefer to stay somewhere just outside the CBD/corporate hotels. Thanks once again and we will be returning soon!  (Iona, Jan 2017,

Thank you Brook and Grant for the warm hospitality you’ve shown and tips about the local area. My friends and I would highly recommend this place to each and every demographic looking for somewhere to kickback. The accommodation was everything we could have asked for inside and out as it was both modern and cosy yet surprisingly convenient in terms of location to both the city and great scenic views. Get in on this people you will not regret it. Regards, Rahul and friends  (Rahul, Jan 2017 – Sydney Australia)

Great and completely new apartment located in a very quiet street. It is newly furnish with quality appliance. You are fully independent and nothing is missing. You feel straight at home : coffee , tea , milk…were available. Brooke and Grant are living next to the apartment and are great hosts. As locals, they perfectly know the surroundings and they are constantly worrying about guests well being. The apartment is closed of many things : you can walk to Darby street for a coffee. Bar Beach and Merewether Baths are closed by. Highly recommended.  (Herve, Dec 2016 – The Hague, Netherland)

“The apartment was even better than the pictures”

We recently stayed at the Cooks HIll Parkside Apartment post-Christmas, with 2 adults and 2 kids. Location is very central, a short walk to Darby Street and beaches, with Centennial Park across the road. A sleek, modern and very comfortable apartment that has all bases covered. We thoroughly enjoyed our week and would love to come back in the future!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cooks Hill Parkside – we are a family of 4 with a 5yo and 2yo. The bedrooms and livings spaces were great and the overall finishes were modern and very welcoming. The accomodation is compact with every detail thought of. We would definitely stay again.
