"I did not want to leave"
I did not want to leave. Instead of using the holiday house as a base from which to explore Coolum and the surrounding district and tourist hotspots, I made my holiday *at* the house. I felt so at home there - it had everything I needed and could want.
When I felt the urge for exercise, I hitched the dogs to leads and explored the area on foot. I even shopped for my meal needs on foot - the shops (Coles) were so close and had hitching posts/rails for your dogs' leads. Even the cafes welcomed the pooches with bowls of water. I spent a lot of time in the swimming pool doing laps just for the sheer luxury and novelty of having a pool at 'my' house.
Although holidaying on my own, I felt secure and very private while charmed by the sound of the beach waves by night and the breezes through the trees by day.
Thanks to the open plan of the house and living area, my dogs were able to be with me or see me at any time whether they were inside or outside and I know that arrangement made *them* happy and contented. I listened to the supplied radio/CD player, watched movies (brought my own) on the DVD players (one in the main bedroom suite as well as one in the living area) and even contemplated one of the jigsaw puzzles among the many board games supplied, but opted for more swimming in the pool. Besides the huge kitchen area fully stocked with every utensil and container I could ever need or want, and two dining areas as well as sun room, I also appreciated the smaller touches - the touch of class flower arrangement on the dining table, the subtle scents from the oil sticks in the bathrooms, and the beach decor throughout the house.

"place is by far the best"
This place is by far the best we have stayed at. We loved the holiday house and especially for the price as we are a large family and it is very hard to find places like this at a reasonable price.

"truly a wonderful experience"
Owning two dogs makes it difficult to get away for a short break and we decided to see if there was any suitable accommodation where we could take them with us. A google search found exactly what we were looking for where we could have our pets in a secure backyard and even inside the home. The house at Coolum Beach was first class with everything provided. Our hosts (Sandy & Colin) made us feel very welcome and we had a relaxing and stress free time. We had no worry whether our pets were being well looked after in a Kennel. We both agree if we go back to the Sunshine Coast this will be our first and only choice to stay. Truly a wonderful experience for the four of us.

"enjoyed a lovely 4 weeks at Driftwood"
We and our woofers enjoyed a lovely 4 weeks at Driftwood. The house was all that the website promised and was the best appointed property we had hired in the years we have been holidaying on the Sunshine Coast.
Lovely big Master bedroom and the outdoor living and pool space was a delight. Surprisingly the kitchen had more than ample crockery, heaps of glasses, cutlery and good utility knives. It was great that our dogs were also catered for with the outdoor bed, bowls and treats. We look forward to staying with you again and thank you, Kindest regards

"had a great time in your holiday house"
Well, that went quick and now back to work for us. Just a quick note to say we had a great time in your holiday house. We managed to get Benji to the beach each day which was nice for us as he's never seen a surf beach before. We made good use of your BBQ and pool and appreciated the attention to details you guys made to make it enjoyable for guests. The home was very clean and user-friendly and we plan to return again. All the best guys.

"had a lovely holiday"
Just a quick note to say we had a lovely holiday. The house was spotless and very comfortable and the pool was sparkling, clean and very inviting. The extra touches such as the wine, chocolates and tea/coffee etc were very much appreciated and made us feel very welcome. It was also great to be able to take our dog on holiday with us, I think she enjoyed it as much as we did. Thanks again, we had a great stay. We loved Coolum and your house.

Kind regards, Duncombe and Forrester families
