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.

Point Lookout Coolum

It was perrfect holiday for everyone . The house was beautiful with amazing views of the sea where we watched the whales passing by from the deck,ever day. The secluded out door spa was wonderful for relaxing for the adults and fun for the kids.

could not fault anything, and recommend to anyone


Santa Monica

Thank you for our stay at Santa Monica. Everything we needed easy available in this lovely comfortable home. The pool was to die for. Lots of fun was had by all. Gucci, the family dog was safe and secure in these surroundings and had a wonderful time exploring. So private and close to all amenities. Lucky for us, the weather was divine and we had beach and pool perfect conditions. Thanks again Maureen, we w/o qld have no hesitation in returning or recommending your home to family and friends.

Beautiful “Point Lookout”

Polly-ShelleyMags,Nev, and Polly Shelley had a wonderful two weeks at Point Lookout Coolum. Views are fantastic. House was very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed to make our holiday complete. Short walk to the beach and shops for us and the pooch. It was a treat to be able to take little Polly with us on holidays. We’ll be back again.

Pt Lookout House – Coolum

picture011What an absolutely gorgeous home! So rare to find a holiday home with such beautiful furnishings that allows your dog inside. Thank you so much for allowing us to experience this place. We had the most wonderful week there, it was so peaceful and relaxing we didn’t want to leave. The location was fabulous as well, close to the shops and beach and the beautiful landscaped gardens gave terrific privacy. Breakfast on the balcony overlooking the ocean was a highlight. What a view! We will be back.

Great Place

TESS Taking off

What a top holiday we have had at Point Lookout. Such a clean beautiful house. Coolum is our favourite spot and Tess our darling Cavoodle agrees.

Fantastic holiday at Point Lookout!

We had 8 people staying at Point Lookout including 4 from the UK! We (locals) thoroughly enjoyed the break away from Brisbane. Waking up to that view every morning was devine. Our international visitors thought it was amazing. Took every opportunity to head down to the beach which was a short run, walk or drive away!
The house was immaculate with everything you needed. The spa was fantastic also!
Thanks for your hospitality Maureen! 16/02/2013 Janice Brisbane, QLD
