Bring the pooch, bring the kids Pack the golf clubs and the fishing gearGreat three bedroom beach house on the Bellarine Peninsula close to golf, beach, fishing, all amenities. Five minutes' walk to the beachfront, shops and St Leonard's Hotel.

Coolum Cottage Beach House is situated at St Leonards - one and a half hours' drive from Melbourne via Geelong. We welcome well-behaved dogs and kids who have a very large, secure garden to play in - including swings and a sandpit with buckets and spades supplied.

The Cottage is fully self-contained for short and longer getaways and has that distinct holiday feel from the moment you arrive. There is ducted heating to all rooms and air conditioning in the lounge/ dining and kitchen, a modern bathroom including bathtub, comfortable beds and fully equipped kitchen for cooking and dining.

So you don't have to pack too much gear for the little ones kids that is, we have melamine bowls, plates and mugs plus some groovy plastic cutlery designed just for kids. And dog bowls are supplied for the family pooch.

If you're bringing older relatives, we have safety grab rails installed in the bathroom and toilet plus a bathboard to enable easier access to the bath/ shower. We want them to take a break, not break a leg.

Enjoy drinks on the back porch while the kids and dog play cricket or footy, have a BBQ dinner and watch the pelicans fly overhead - Coolum Cottage is right on their flight path.

And if the weather is a bit nippy outside, we have a TV, DVD, stereo, plenty of books, magazines and games to pass the time away in the warmth inside.

If you're an avid golfer, the St Leonards Golf Club is five minutes walk away and is one of the numerous courses easily accessible by car on the Bellarine. If you're a wine buff, there are plenty of excellent wineries throughout the Peninsula to spend your time exploring.

St Leonards offers a great range of eateries from traditional fish n chips to pizza and pasta. Or wander down to the St Leonards Hotel for a meal in the beer garden or dinner in Tides Restaurant.

Coolum Cottage offers the same beach holiday you had as a kid - spending time with family and only thinking of Melbourne when you see the city on the far, far shores across Swan Bay.

Facilities: Air conditioning, Bath, BBQ, Boat Ramp Nearby, Books/Magazines Supplied, CD Player, Children's Playground, DVD, Kitchen, Laundry facilities, Pets Welcome Indoors, Stereo, Television, off street parking.

This property sleeps up to 5 adults in 3 bedrooms - double, twin and single.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous cottage for dogs and their owners We stayed for 3 nights in Oct with our dog and absolutely loved the cottage and area. Communication and helpfulness of owners was terrific. Location is perfect , just a short walk to the beach and shops. Really dog friendly and spotlessly clean and comfy. We'll be back ASAP! Great kitchen shop in the town that caters for dogs as we'll all really friendly and the beaches are perfect for pooches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful We loved our stay at Coolum Cottage.It was spotless and cheerful and everything had been thought of. Quiet location but walking distance to shops and foreshore.So relaxing sitting on the deck while our son played in the sandpit and being able to bring our dog was a bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was refreshing to be able to take our dog with us to stay in someone else's house. The dog was very well catered for with treats, dog bowls,couches,blankets and dog bed. The backyard is big and enclosed and good for dogs or children. Humans are also well catered for with extra little touches which were very much appreciated. We all enjoyed the beach which was a short walk away from the accommodation and being able to take our dog to a local cafe (Cafe Ink) for breakfast with us. A great weekend had by all.
