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.
