Summer is almost here. First Bay sits serenely at the bottom of our road. A dip in the water, fun and relaxation with the family, a glass of wine, a picnic, an engaging novel? It’s all medicine for the soul. Enjoy a holiday to be remembered. See you at Coolum Ocean Views pet friendly holiday house where you can enjoy our dog friendly beaches. All the best, Maureen West
It’s whale watching season. Humpback whales begin their southern migration in September and October. Check them out from our Coolum Beach Pet Friendly Holiday houses. Or perhaps stroll to Point Perry two hundred metres down the street or walk to the new whale watching platform at Second Bay. Lookout for tell-tale spouts – tail slapping – and full body breaches. We supply binoculars in both houses. Good luck and enjoy.
Beach Access Points 69 -8. Family friendly open beach with parks and a boardwalk, it is the home of Coolum Surf Life Saving Club. Dogs are permitted off-leash at all times from the northern end of Coolum Beach caravan park (67) extending 1km north of Stumers Creek (72) carpark accessed via Stumers Creek Road. The beach and adjacent parks are popular for wedding ceremonies and events and can be booked.
Coolum Beach’s new whale watching platform is the place to breathe in the sunrise with a coffee or a moonrise with a glass of wine. The walking trail to Point Cartwright has similar, but smaller, lookouts. Lookout for turtles and dolphins. Try Point Perry. Just a few hundred metres from your holiday house. Your dog will enjoy the walk too. And your dog will appreciate those special moments with you. Maybe just sit on your deck and enjoy the ocean views. It’s your time to relax. You choose. Enjoy.
Come visit us on the glorious Sunshine Coast. Check out this video. You won’t be disappointed. All the best, Maureen
Mount Coolum – glorious views, great trail, awesome exercise. Holidays are about family and your dog. Relax and get fit. Walk with your family and dog on the beach, run with your dog at sunrise, run with your dog at sunset. Chill with your family and dog over a glass of champagne. Coffee too. Enjoy.
Wow! What a trip. A seaplane ride from the Maroochy River over the Sunshine Coast was an awesome adventure to view our beautiful beaches from around 450 metres. A magical experience. Take-off and landing are from the Maroochy River. We did this trip with the doors off to add spice to the adventure. A big thank you to Shawn our pilot from Paradise Seaplanes.
Sunset in Paradise
Maureen and I often stroll with our dog Tess from Coolum Beach to Peregian Beach. It’s a stunning walk with few people. We break the walk with coffee at Peregian and then return. Allow two hours for this walk. I always take my camera and Sunday evening presented a stunning sunset. Coolum Beach is our slice of paradise. Come and enjoy it with your family AND your dog.
Wildlife at Point Perry
Point Perry is just at the bottom of the road. a two minute stroll from Point Lookout Pet Friendly Holiday House Coolum Beach. I often walk our dog Tess there and always go armed with my camera. You never know what you might see. This afternoon I was delighted to find an Osprey perched high over the water and an added bonus …. it was dinner time. Make sure you bring your camera when you visit and ask Richard for the best spots to catch Ospreys, Turtles, Whales and on occasion the odd lost seal …
A beautiful sunrise at Second Bay. A walk along the beach and then back to Point Lookout Coolum Beach holiday house to have breakfast on the deck and enjoy the beautiful ocean vistas. We live in paradise ..
