Overview

About the property

ABSOLUTE BEACHFRONT family home on 20 miles of old fashioned unspoilt perfect beach. All guests receive a complimentary bottle of chilled champagne on arrival. The home is a highset large three bedroom home with spare shower and toilet downstairs in the large utility area and a great holiday and beach atmosphere. It has internal stairs and a tandem garage. A HUGE deck faces a short forest walk through the dune protection area to the beach with no road to cross! Beach fishing directly behind the home is excellent. Some guests have complained of crab poisoning from eating so many of their catch! Bring your boat and launch it at the double all-tide Toogoom boat ramp. The outdoor furniture includes 2 banana lounges. Half of the 52 square metre deck is covered by a stratco all-weather roof the other half by a stylish professional shade sail. The balustrade is stainless steel horizontal yacht wire. Crabbing and fishing are popular, or just beach-combing for a huge variety of shells. Keep an eye out for dugongs, turtles, and whales from July through October. Cleaning is included in the tarriff. Beach Hound offers total relaxation! Well behaved canine companions are welcome at Beach Hound. We go to Beach Hound regularly ourselves, so we know it is the best!

Toogoom is the last "forgotten" beach frontier, with all mod cons

Toogoom is a sleepy fishing village 15 minutes drive north of the City of Hervey Bay. It has 20 miles of rare unspoilt perfect northerly beach protected by Fraser Island. The sun both rises and sets over the beach, and never blasts you across the water creating a beach that is perfect all day long. The beach never has shadows on it. Swimming is idyllic and SAFE. The beach is shallow for hundreds of metres, with small waves to massage a tired body while you enjoy the black cockatoos and bird life in the she-oaks along the foreshore. The beach has a long off-leash area for dog lovers. When the tide is out, dogs can runs for MILES! There is a 15 m wide dune protection area all the way along Toogoom Beach creating an unbelievably private and quiet beach. All modern conveniences are a 15 minute drive away including the airport, 6 cinemas, restaurants, chain stores, banks etc. There are 5 golf courses and a driving range nearby. Toogoom itself has a general store, service station and "Goodys", a waterfront licensed seafood restaurant beside the boat ramp. Let me recommend the seafood platter!

The back yard is fully fenced, there is a kennel, dog bed, and dog bowls.

"A delightful corner of the world. The dogs want to live here..."

The McLean's:"Again, we enjoyed an idyllic stay at Beach Hound. It is just so relaxing up there - somehow timeless and Casper loves the beach. He is really missing it this week since returning home. He's not the only one! We were so pleased to be able to extend for the extra 3 days at the beginning. It is a lovely corner of the world."

The Morris family: "Lovely! A wonderful getaway. Loved the quiet beach. I'll be coming back!"

The Vohland family:"THANK YOU! Wonderful place, loved the extra touches, felt like home and the puppies just had a ball!!

Roby, Pat, Rick, Cass & Rex:"Appreciated the little touches-we had everything we needed right here. Thank you for sharing your home with us; can we come again?"

The Cameron family Gladstone:"Wonderful retreat. Enjoyed our stay so much. Thanks. PS Champers was much appreciated."

McLean family Redcliffe:"A delightful corner of the world. A very comfortable home and much enjoyed by all of us. Thanks!"

Mattock family Chermside:"Dogs loved the beach and Sam loved the kennel. Soo relaxing, we all enjoyed it!"

Miller family "I didn't know such haven's still existed!"

Great house great position

  • 4 of 5

My son and I wanted to get away to a quiet little place to do a bit of fishing and just chill out. This place was perfect. The house is comfortable and has a really good beachie feel about it. The location is amazing, down the back stairs, 50m walk through the reserve onto the beach with amazing views.If you want all that Hervey Bay has to offer ,it is only a 15min. drive away. I thought it was great value and will be going back.

Great Beach House

  • 4 of 5

In pouring rain the Beach Hound welcomed our return with the familiar large garage door opening for direct unloading of our 4x4. We (inc dogs) settled in quickly n headed out the back gate barefooted onto the beach. Such a great spot. Deep sleep. We visited Toogoom cafes n bars (all dog friendly), saw beautiful sunsets and sunrises, chilled out at the house and ducked over to Hervey Bay. Kitchen has basics but good. Take Pods for Nespresso machine. House has lots of stairs.

Relaxing Holiday

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful stay at the Beach Hound. The house is simple, beachie and easy to settle into. The position is awesome and so very relaxing. Great for the dog who also had a great time at the beach and relaxing on the deck. Would have liked to have stayed longer. Would definitely recommend to anyone who want's to just get away from it all....
