Point Look Out

Really enjoyed the stay, great place to take a break. We will see you again Maureen and Richard. Take Care.

I’m not used to places so well equipped

Loved the views and was so amazed at everything you provided. I’m not used to places being so well equipped. Adults and dogs alike really enjoyed the break. thank you for providing such a lovely holiday option.

Our dogs loved it too

Lovely house. Great views – our dogs enjoyed it too. Thank you

Perfect Holiday with Dogs

I recently stayed at Maureen’s property at Scrub Road, Coolum with my dogs and I have to say it is beautiful. The property is in a wonderful location and has great views of the ocean. The property caters very well for dogs and people alike.

Maureen was fantastic, very prompt in returning my inquiry call and flexible with check out times.

Thank you Maureen, we had a great holiday and will most definitely be back!



I stumbled across your website after a very lengthy and fruitless search for pet-friendly accommodation WITHOUT restrictions on the size of dog you can bring. Just when you think you’d found something suitable the fine print says “suitable for small and medium sized dogs – larger dogs subject to approval”. Too many times I came across this problem until I discovered your very comprehensive and user-friendly website which listed no such restrictions and seemed inviting enough for me to make a call and verify the details.
Maureen had no hesitation in telling us our Saint Bernard (and our 19 year old cat) were more than welcome to stay (we chose Santa Monica because of the pool and yard).
The house was well-equipped and many items brought from home were left unpacked because they simply weren’t needed.
This was out first ever stay in Coolum but I can assure you it won’t be the last. Thanks, Maureen!

Point Lookout What a lovely stay

We had a lovely stay.
Our holiday was amazing unfortunately for us a week wasnt long enough.
It was absolutely fantastic to be able to bring our little puppy along he had just as much fun as we did.
Thanks again Maureen and Richard :)

Fantastic can’t wait to go back!

imageMissing the pool already! Had a fantastic week at Santa Monica – it has everything we needed and felt like home from home – but with lots of added extras! The doggies were comfy there too and the beaches are amazing, and only a few mins walk away, as well as great restaurants and shops. Having the back courtyard is a bonus and the security is great. So many great things to say – we will definately book again.

Point Lookout House

Dear Maureen,

We had a very enjoyable, relaxing holiday at your Point Lookout House. It is very convenient to the beach with a delightful seaside view from the kitchen, lounge room and balcony. The home provided everything one needs for an enjoyable holiday.

Kind regards,

From the time I read about Pethols and saw the TV clip on 23 Scrub Road, I knew that was the spot for my Staffie “Barney” and I to escape from the Victorian cold and travel north.   We were not disappointed.   The house was all and more than had been depicted in the film.   There was nothing we required that was not available both inside and outside the house….it was delightful.   Our very early morning walk down the hill to the beach was the most anticipated part of the day both to meet the  local surfers and have a run , whilst the “dog friendly” area down past the Caravan Park provided hours of playing with numbers of new “best friends” and gave his entourage a lot of amusement.   After all, it was primarily a holiday for me and my dog and, as you can see by the photo, he certainly was not disappointed.   Added to which he ‘discovered’ pelicans!  My three companions voted the house was great, the views from the balcony first class and, whilst we did not see any whales during our stay – August 17-31st, we had plenty of porpoise to admire.   We were all certainly much fitter when we left Scrub Road than on our arrival!   And Barney?   Well he hasn’t settled down yet and wants to return.   I think he’s become a ‘professional tourist’!    We would all love to return at any time of the year.
