Pet Friendly Accommodation Victoria
At Ocean Blue Coastal Retreats we believe holidays should be for the whole family, including your furry family members, so we specialise in great pet-friendly holiday accommodation. Most pet owners will agree, I think, that our pets truly are a huge part of our families. We wouldn’t want to leave our kids in a kennel whilst we go away and have fun and we feel the same about our pets. We want our guests to enjoy their time away knowing that everyone is having fun. What makes a great pet-friendly stay with Ocean Blue?
What makes the perfect pet-friendly accommodation?
When holiday home owners join the Ocean Blue family one of the first questions we ask them is whether they are willing to accept pets as guests. The majority of our home owners are pet owners themselves and they also understand how important it is to our guests to be able to bring their pets along with them. When we set up our holiday homes for guest arrival we have 5 criteria that we feel are essential for a holiday home to be that 5 Paw pawfectly pet-friendly holiday home.
Pet Friendly Stays with Ocean Blue
A fully fenced property is always the top of any dog owners list. They want to be able to relax knowing their buddy is safe, secure and free to wander and explore.
Lawn or garden
Every dog loves a new garden to explore, especially if they can sniff out the dogs that have stayed before!
Outdoor undercover area to shelter from rain or shine
If you are out and about you don’t want to worry that your furry family member is not in a comfortable space. Our ideal properties will have an undercover area to shelter and watch out for your return.
Pets are allowed inside
Of course your dog wants to be inside with the rest of the family and we want them to feel at home too! We provide a water bowl and even a special welcome gift for our guest of honour.
Walk to a pet-friendly park or beach
The majority of our properties are only a short walk from a dog-friendly park or beach. The Mornington Peninsula is a wonderfully pet-friendly area. You can find details HERE of dog beaches, pet-friendly walks, pet-friendly cafes & restaurants and even pet-friendly wineries and cellar doors!
Stylish Pet-Friendly Holiday Accommodation
Just because you want to take your pet on holiday, it doesn’t mean that you don’t want to stay somewhere beautiful. We have found when travelling with our pets that it is often difficult to find accommodation that is not only pet-friendly, but also stylish and well cared for. We want our holiday houses to feel like home from home for everyone, so they include all those important details that make a home feel loved. Visit our website to see all that we have to offer.
