I recently had the pleasure of spending a week at the Marcoola House and in my opinion, this is the best pet friendly accommodation on the coast … and I have tried quite a few!

I applaud the owners for the thought and effort that has gone into making this house an absolute pleasure to stay in for us and our dogs. Fantastic outdoor areas, beautiful bathrooms, comfy beds and heaps of added extras – add a one minute walk to a dog friendly, patrolled beach and you have a destination you will not want to leave. I came home (reluctantly) and immediately booked my next holiday at Marcoola House. Absolute 10 out of 10.
Regards, Jan Singleton and family

We stayed 4 days at Beautiful Coolum House and had a great time everything that you need is supplied we love to hoilday with our dogs. We fed the ducks every morning and every afternoon and watched the kangaroos come up to the fence every afternoon and when booking our hoilday with Alison she makes everything so easy Thanks very much for great house to hoilday with our Furkids Anthony and Debbie

We could not have wished for a more relaxed week away. From driving in the driveway, to walking past the inviting pool and entering the Surf Club House for the first time, we knew we had made the right choice for our week away. Everyone felt welcome and right at home. From my elderly parents’ stay in the beautiful Studio Flat to our two teenage boys and Fred the Maltese – we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Some of the highlights were being able to leave the cars in the garage and walk to the beach with Fred, the peace and quiet of the area, being able to hear the ocean while relaxing by the pool, the ease in being able to book such a wonderful holiday over the internet (thank you Alison). The only sad thing about our week away was it went too fast and was definitely not long enough. Once again a big thank you from Allan, Linda and Family (and of course Fred the Maltese).”

Thank you for supplying us with superb accommodation in Coolum House, which we stayed in for our holiday from the 6th to the 12th of July 2014. All members of our family (including four children aged 8 – 18 + 2 Jack Russells/Foxies) had a very relaxed and enjoyable stay. The house was well appointed and was so functional that making meals, doing washing and keeping floors clean was no fuss. My hubby and the kids even had a few swims in the pool! We loved seeing the wallaby at dusk and the ducks were a regular treat for the kids to feed. The location met all our needs. We had the choice of Woolies or Coles, and the best Fish and Chips shop just a short drive away. Our family made good use of the local bike paths. (Thank you for having some bikes available…it was nice to ride with the kids rather than just chase them!) The highlight of each morning was bundling the dogs and family into the car and driving a few short minutes to the dog friendly beach. We truly had fun every day, either relaxing in the house, or enjoying the sights the Sunshine coast has to offer. It was so pleasant to be able to return to Coolum House at the end of each day and enjoy the creature comforts of a luxurious and yet welcoming home. We highly recommend Coolum House to anyone wanting a great, family and pet friendly holiday! We look forward to our next holiday there. Many thanks, The Atherton Family. Mansfield, Brisbane.

Deborah Crompton says, 20 August, 2020 ~ Surf Club House
Gary and I just spent the most wonderful 10 days in the Surf Club House with our standard poodle and up to 3 other some visitors at one time and there was plenty of room for us all. The house and studio were very clean and had everything we needed for our stay plus some things that make self catering really easy but are often not on hand like plenty of dish washing liquid, cling wrap, alfoil, salt and pepper, etc. Also some games and books in the cupboard (I traded a book I brought with me and finished for one I found in the cupboard) and plenty of indoor and outdoor areas to relax together or in your own little corner. We even had a dip in the heated pool. Although pet friendly THERE ARE NO PET SMELLS OR HAIR TO BE SEEN! The beach is only a block away and the dog beach is a great 20 minute walk away so easy to keep the dog exercised and happy. The local coffee shops and general store are handy and serve good food plus the twilight markets on Friday night were only a block away – perfect for grabbing some great food to take home and eat in comfort. We had an absolutely great time and will go back whenever we can.

What an awesome location! We wanted very close to the beach and we got it! Could even hear the waves at night. Awesome location and gorgeous house, nice and modern and super clean!
Lots of activities to do at the house and nice area of Marcoola

Vanessa says: Awesome house…very kiddy friendly as well as pet friendly…was a home away from home.Ticked all the boxes and more. I will definitely be recommending this house…we hope to try all your houses 🙂 very hard to find a holiday home that you can truly relax knowing our kids and molly dog were soooo welcome…thank you Alison.


Julie says: Hi Alison, I have told so many friends and they were amazed that we got this beautiful little cottage with a pool right near the beach and on top of it all the best part was our dog could stay. We were delighted with all the little thoughts for welcoming not only guests but dogs, like the dog bowls and dog bed we even found a toy.Thanks for a great stay.


Pavla smith says: Our stay at the Surf Club House at Marcoola was truly great. Everything was perfect, location to the beach, using the house bicycles on the nearby trail leading to Coolum Beach, the ping-pong was a hit with the four teenagers we had with us. The house is great and highly private. Our mature age Labrador Sheeba was so happy with the short walk to the beach and resting in the secure yard at other times. All in all, fantastic!
