Coolum Beach Point Lookout is simply the best pet friendly holiday house to visit on the Sunshine Coast

My local furry buddies tell me that Coolum Beach Point Lookout is simply the best pet friendly holiday house to visit on the Sunshine Coast. Socialising, playing, making friends, fetching ball and just generally sniffing around – Yeah, that’s what we dogs like. So when we’re on holiday at Point Lookout where do mum and dad take us for walks? Well with my lead on you can take me almost anywhere but be sure to take my pooh bag because I never know when I might need to go.  But I heard on the dogvine that Stumer’s Creek is the place to hang out. Yes sir, I heard dogs of all kinds just have a ball here. Pardon the pun. No leash. We can just run, splash and play with friends without that annoying leash. And we can swim in the creek or the ocean. It’s great for kids here too. It takes 4 minutes by car and 25 minutes to walk. So where is Stumers Creek?  Just go down Scrub Road towards the ocean then turn left and head north for just over 2kms then turn right into Stumers Creek road. Head down toward the bottom of the road and there’s the creek and the ocean. There’s showers and washing facilities for me. And showers and toilets for mum and dad.  From there the world is my oyster. I can roam free for 1 km north between beach accesses 67 to 72. Awesome fun.

An alternate walk is to take me to Point Arkwright. You’ll need my leash for this walk but I heard it’s really beautiful. So you walk me down to the bottom of Scrub Road , cross the road and turn right. Walk south up the hill, past beautiful First Bay. As you continue up the hill you’ll pass a car park on the left. Keep walking until you come to a second car park. On the south side of the car park you’ll see a track that heads down some stairs onto a path that leads through the woods. Keep walking along the track for about 15 to 20 minutes until you come to a wide clearing and picnic facilities. You’ll know when you reached this spot because you’ll find another car park and the most beautiful views from the Point. Keep a lookout because along the way you might spot ospreys and kites, as well as turtles and in season, whales.  This walk will take you about 1 hour return trip. And there’s water for me to drink along the way.

Remember if you need to wash me down when we get home to Point Lookout there’s an outside tap and hose to the left of the front door.

So what are we waiting for? My tail is wagging. Grab my lead and let’s go!


Thank you so much for having us Maureen and Richard

Thank you so much for having us Maureen and Richard. We had the most wonderful weekend away for our baby moon and my birthday. The house was beautifully presented with spectacular views, and was nice and clean. We really appreciated your suggestions of where to go and what to do. It was really special being able to bring our fur baby with us and made our holiday complete. We will definitely be back again. thank you so much. Pula Kristen and Yaki

Beautiful holiday!

A big thanks to Maureen and Richard.
We stayed in their house at Coolum Beach and we had the most wonderful time. We really wanted to get away and take our dog with us and we were amazed at how well appointed the house was and catered to all our needs.
The views were spectacular, the beach was a 5 minute walk and we could walk into town. We thoughly enjoyed our morning and evening walks on the dog friendly beaches and we also loved some of the restaurants.
If you are looking to relax and you would like to take your dog with you, this is a place you must try. We will definitely come back again. Thank you.

Best Ocean View in Coolum

A perfect spot for our recent family holiday. Best views in Coolum of the sea, enough space for the whole family to feel comfortable, and the jacuzzi was a HIT! Very helpful hosts when it came to booking & negotiating check in and out times. We hope to return!

Seriously believe the reviews…

Looking for a getaway with the fur kid/s this IS the place. Everything you could need is there. Whether sitting on the balcony for breakfast or for beers, relaxing in the hot tub after a long ‘dog day’ on the beach or just chilling in the lounge watching TV in the evening. Views are amazing; location is perfect for local amenities including a massive and amazing dog friendly beach. Didn’t see much of Maureen or Richard – didn’t need to but the little we did see it was clear that they are lovely as well as helpful. We will be back.

Magnificent seas views from the front but you never know what you might see in the back yard sub tropical gardens

A cheeky Kangaroo and its Joey came for an early morning breakfast at Point Lookout. This holiday house is built within the trees with beautiful rear secluded sub-tropical gardens.  You maybe lucky to see and hear all manner of wild life including our shy kangaroo.

The view here is awesome from deck and through the house too! We enjoyed the beach walks with our Tavish (border collie). Everything we needed was available to us and our dog – home away from home. We look forward to our next stay.
