First impression when I walked into the house was Wow. It is spacious and very clean, there is a large deck out back with BBQ and behind the fence is a reserve. Great if the dogs need to let off a bit more steam but they hardly need it as the beach is the terrific for that. One of the best dog beaches I have been to. Me and my family and my dogs would highly recommend staying here. Did I mention the pool, great for relaxing after a day on the beach.
My wife and I looked to find a beach property to relax with our two dogs for the week leading into the busy festive season. From the first initial contact with Alison, with the easy process and friendly nature, we new that " Coolum Waves" was the place.
The large flowing house is perfect, in location, and also amenities and cleanliness.
Only a 2 minute drive or casual 15 minute walk to the main Coolum Beach shops and beach, gave us the quiet and relaxing time away from the crowds over the school holiday period.
The house is very well set out, with the bonus of the double garage set up as a large rumpus/games room. Four large bedrooms, two well fitted bathrooms(one a large ensuite with sensational shower and spa bath), and kitchen made for a restful stay. The rear patio, with outdoor lounge, large dining seating and BBQ, gave us the privacy to enjoy the outdoor living after a long walk on the off-lead dog beach each morning. With the property fully fenced, our dogs loved the freedom and space to lie and contemplate their next play in the surf. The well designed saltwater pool allowed for time to cool off and catch some sun, without having to contend with the sand at the beach if needed.
A wonderful pet friendly property at Coolum Beach, that we will certainly be booking again for future holidays with the family. Highly recommended.
A group of 5 adult cyclists, this was a great place to base ourselves for our cycling holiday. Just a 15 minute stroll to the main street (restaurants, cafes, surf club, retail, hotel and bottle shops) and a 10 minute stroll to the supermarket complex it was an ideal place for us. Coolum Waves presented just as its photos. All bedrooms were a good size and the kitchen/dining/lounge area is very spacious. The garage, transformed into a pool room, made for some enjoyable evenings - as did the outdoor dining, lounge and Weber BBQ where we ate most of our meals. The heated pool was lovely and provided us with a well-deserved soak at the end of our morning rides. No comment about our stay would be complete without mentioning our host Alison. She was fabulous. Nothing was too much trouble - small items brought to her attention were dealt with quickly - and she even went out of her way to transport us to Coolum House (another of her properties) when it was time for us to relocate, as we didn’t have a vehicle.

What a wonderful house with all the extras to enjoy a relaxing holiday with all the family. There was plenty of room for people to go into separate living areas. Excellent games for the kids and little luxuries re coffee machine for the adults . Alison couldn't have been more helpful.
We will definitely stay here again and next time bring our furry boy.
Thank you Alison for the perfect house in the best location. Our whole family loved your house. It had beautiful clean rooms. We loved the games room， the spa, the pool, the 2 bikes, great restaurants etc etc. Many more things to mention. Most of all we got to relax with our beautiful dogs and enjoyed our frequent walks to the dog friendly beach. We will definitely be back again next year and stay even longer. Highly recommended to anyone.
