This is one of the greatest places we have stayed while in Australia.Arlene DiGiacomo - 2nd March 2023
This is one of the greatest places we have stayed while in Australia. Absolutely outstanding, whoever did the decorating is without a doubt great!"
Fabulous locationDanielle Weston - 20th January 2023
The location is awesome! This is our second stay at Koonya Sur Mer and we've rebooked again for next summer. The apartment is surprising spacious and well appointed. The downside is the morning noise from the garbage trucks and street sweepers and the QB bed is a little small if you are used to a KB. Fly wire screens on the windows and a bigger television would be a welcome addition. But it's so well positioned and the view is spectacular from the large balconies.
Great place and awesome location!Paul Mawdsley - 17th December 2022
Bigger than it looks in the pictures which does not normally happen. On this particular weekend was also offered an early check in and late check out.
ExcellentErich Sinkis - 30th November 2022
Spotless, well equipped and spacious. Along with the view and location, while pricey, presents fair value. Flexibility to have a double bed in second bedroom would be good. Check in time should be no later than 2.00 pm and checkout 12.00 especially on a Sunday morning. The booking agent was very good and not officious as some can be.
We would highly recommend this apartment.Suzanne Walker - 7th November 2022
We had a wonderful weekend, and loved staying at this lovely generous, comfortable place in an amazing location. We would highly recommend this apartment.
Just Fantastic!Tony Greenaway - 10th October 2022

This was my second stay at Koonya Sur Mer!Caroline Prosser - 22nd April 2022
Once again the apartment and especially the view from the gorgeous wraparound veranda didn’t disappoint. We were fortunate to have beautiful weather most of the time and spent lots of time taking in the ambiance of the apartment and watching the passing parade from the wonderful balcony. Communication was excellent in fact more than excellent. The location is wonderful.
The perfect spot in Sorrento.Jennifer Watt - 11th April 2022
This is a fabulous apartment in a great spot. All the comforts of home. Stunning views. Heaps of space. The perfect spot in Sorrento.
Wonderful stay in SorrentoChristine Heath - 17th March 2022
Koonya Sur Mer is a great property in the perfect location. We loved our four day stay and would definitely stay again. Every amenity was provided and while a few things need upgrading we understand how difficult maintenance is so close to the sea.
Very happy!Christine Heath - 17th March 2022
Very happy with the professionalism of the staff member I spoke to. All of the communications were clear and helpful.
Lovely holiday residence!John Nesbitt - 28th February 2022

Fantastic locationDanielle Weston - 31st January 2022
Loved our stay at Koonya Sur Mer21. Fabulous location with awesome views of the foreshore & ferry. Walking distance to everything. Apartment was very spacious and bigger than we imagined. Lots of breakout areas and huge wrap around deck to enjoy. Verve team were excellent with quick communication. We have rebooked for next summer. Can’t wait!
Wow what a beautiful apartment! Very spacious and light, easy access and perfect location and Kathryn was a wonderful host! Would definitely recommend.
A must stay accommodation in beautiful Sorrento. The apartment was spacious with loads of comfy furniture, wonderful beds and linen and all the amenities you would want whilst staying in the apartment. Super clean and inviting. The spectacular view of the waterfront from the balcony and every room in the apartment is enviable. It was a magical three days and we would definitely stay again. Book now, you won’t be disappointed !!
Amazing in so many ways !Caroline Prosser - 19th May 2021
We enjoyed a wonderful 3 days at Koonya Sur Mer Unit 21. The view from the balcony and every room looks out onto the waterfront, and what a spectacular view it is ! The apartment is large and spacious with every amenity you might require. The beds and furniture are super comfy and the linen is amazing. It has a lovely ambience especially from the beautiful Veranda and so close to the wonderful enticing shopping strip which is a stone‘s throw from the apartment. You won’t be disappointed 👌
Great apartment in a perfect location.
Great holiday location!Phillip Moraitis - 28th April 2021

Very enjoyableJustine - 8th April 2021
Negative: Positive: The apartment was well located just a 10 minute stroll the the local shopping strip and very close to restaurants.

Thanks for proving a wonderful apartment!David Blair - 24th March 2021
Had the "wow" factor from the minute we saw the property online. And we were still blown away from the minute we entered the property. Thanks for proving a wonderful apartment!
superb location /amazing sunrise / spectacular views
Views and spaceMegan Mitchell - 8th March 2021
Loved it here. Perfect for our family. Great set-up, views were amazing and the location is fantastic. Really good communication from the Verve team throughout as well. We will return.
It’s a beautiful, spacious apartment with wonderful views and so close to cafes and restaurants
Location! Communication! Value for moneyNasser Hojok - 9th February 2021
What a great location, the balcony wrap around is one of a kind. Located across the road from the beach, walk to the main strip, walk to the ferry, a massive kids park just a five min walk away. Great restaurant (Italico) just below. Communication from the host was instantaneous. TV is too small for the apartment but didn’t spend much time in front of it. Netflix, WiFi coffee pods all bonus. No elevator made it very hard with the pram, three kids and luggage But still worthwhile.4.5/5 overall
Suburb location. Get your food from Italico downstairs, walk to the shops, cross over to take the ferry. Literally across the road is the beach, great comms from the host and a great view. Balcony wrap around is spectacular. Great for kids too. Just missing an elevator so was hard to get the pram/luggage up and down. Lots of breakout areas and a weird one but water pressure is next level.
Great place in a great location - easy to walk everywhere (shops, yacht club, front beach) to avoid the traffic. Views are lovely and apartment is very spacious. It’s a little worn but perfect for a family beach break. Can be very noisy at times with restaurants underneath and traffic but all-in-all a great holiday spot.
Pleasant to deal with.Irena Hyde - 30th December 2020
Customer service is fabulous! Pleasant to deal with. Made up sofa bed quickly. Fast turn around re queries.
This is a brilliant property. We’ve stayed a couple of times now and wouldn’t stay anywhere else. Spectacular views, huge apartment, everything you could possible need. Close to beach, shops, walks, parks. Our kids beg us to stay at this place whenever we can.

The views were breath taking!Fiona - 12th May 2020
We had an absolutely wonderful stay at your stunning property and Verve went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. Every single little detail was thought of and the house was immaculate. We just loved it!
Location and views are superb!Repa - 15th March 2020
The location of this apartment and views from the balcony are superb. Everything is on your doorstep. Despite being on top of a restaurant it was very quiet at night.
5 Stars!Rosemary - 9th February 2020
Koonya Sur Mer was a 5 star property. We would stay in this beach house again!
Would stay there again.Vincent - 31st January 2020
A five stay property. We would stay at Koonya Sur Mer again.
Highly RecommendedHarryGill - 13th December 2019
Once booked, I was always looking forward to the excellent location. Set above some nice, low-key cafes some 200 meters downhill from Sorrento town centre and the hotel and at the location of the former iconic Koonya hotel, with views across the bay. Entry into the apartment was the crowning glory. The place is replete with several spacious balconies and plenty of space inside which was, if anything, too big for the 3 of us. The only thing you could have done better with was the weather! I recommend this place highly
Great location!Duncan - 15th October 2019
