Built as the Mornington Hotel in 1876, the ‘KOONYA’ site has had a mixed history. The original building survives today as the corner piece of the Koonya Apartments accommodation and entertainment precinct at 3374 Point Nepean Rd. It began as a humble, solid limestone building on the foreshore to accommodate visitors.
The Mornington Hotel (later the Koonya Hotel) was constructed for John Boswell Clarke and remained in the family until 1952 with the Clark family having ran the hotel and lived next door. It gained a verandah and balcony in 1913. The site was redeveloped through the decades.
Nestled in the hillside between the foreshore and shops Koonya is in the perfect location for your Sorrento getaway! A boutique selection of the 35 apartments are offered for holiday rental most directly through an owners co-operative established after the first residents moved into their luxury apartments. Guests take comfort in knowing they can deal directly with an owner.
A choice of 2 or 3 bedroom apartments, all individually furnished with the highest quality of fixtures, fully self contained kitchens all pristinely maintained to ensure the guests experience is supreme.
Whilst in residence guests staying have access to the indoor heated pool and spa making Koonya unique and also explains why guests flock to Koonya in the cooler months.
Bridal couples getting married nearby, family holidays as well as girls weekend getaways often call Koonya home. The myriad of shops, restaurants, wedding venues and day spas in the Sorrento Village are all a stones throw from Koonya. Golfing groups from interstate and overseas enjoy the relaxed atmosphere amongst the limestone buildings.
The history of Koonya and the Sorrento Village can be enjoyed with photographs displayed in various apartments. Accommodation enquiries can be made via the bookings page
