Arden House was built in the late 1800's and one of the first grand residences in Sydneys Eastern Suburbs. Its original name was Bayview, situated on the southern end of Coogee Beach escarpment.
The house still retains its beautiful old word architecture, mixed with a subtle modern additions.
Our guests range from full time workers who have been here for several years to short term stays of several months as people move between a more permanent residence or visiting Coogee on work or study assignments.
All guests have their own private room, with full access to a beautiful commercial kitchen, allowing guests the opportunity to mingle and make new friends.
We have four separated bathrooms which allow for your own privacy and these as the rest of the common areas are cleaned daily.
Arden House is centrally located providing easy transit to Bondi, Randwick, Sydney Airport,University of NSW, Prince of Wales Hospital and Sydneys CBD.

Excellent stay for 8 months - March 2020
We are two Norwegian exchange students who stayed here for 8 months. It was a wonderful place, close to UNSW, cinema, shopping center, beautiful Coogee beach and the well known Bondi Beach. There are also several bus stops that connect you with the whole city.
The Manager, David, has treated us really well. When having the inspection he even drove us to the next inspection and was always available for questions. He changed our room so we could have to separate beds and more closet space. He made it as comfortable as possible for us. He has offered to drive us to the airport several times for Christmas holidays and when leaving the house and have always been kind to us.
The Caretaker, John, has always been there to help us with anything practical related to the house. He fixed the fan when needed to, helped us with the washing machine when needed and always kept the house clean and tidy. They wash the kitchen and the bathrooms almost every day and make room for you in the fridge and closets if needed.
I want to thank the manager and the caretaker for making our experience in Australia amazing. Thanks for being so welcoming and for helping us get around in Australia.
Study Abroad Stay - March 2020
I stayed at the Arden house from January to late March to study nearby at UNSW.
This place truly became my home away from home with the help of David (landlord) and John (caretaker for the house). They were very thoughtful and made my experience a pleasant one. This was my first time living on my own and everyone in the house was easygoing and kind.
I really appreciated how clean the common spaces were, my room was spacious and comfortable.
The location was absolutely what I was looking for, just a 3 min walk to Coogee beach
