Finding a pet friendly rental for your family, including the family dog or cat has always been a nightmare. With dog and cat ownership in Australia at its highest, travelling with your furry friend is understandably at it’s most popular. After all, why leave the happiest member of your family at a strange, over-crowded kennel or with a stranger?Wynnum Manly Hideaway however we have four short term holiday houses perfectly suited for pets, allowing you to have the “purr-fect” holiday. Or was that a woofing good time?
Over the 10 years that we have been accommodating families and groups in Brisbane, we’ve seen a significant rise in the number of holiday-makers asking us to assist with their pets. So we’ve made every effort to ensure the “other” member of your family feels right at home.
We have 4 beautiful homes, setup specifically for you and your pet to enjoy!
With such high demand for the combination of pet friendly and family friendly lodgings, we’ve decided to make a number of deliberate changes to each of our houses so that you and your pet really enjoy your stay. This means less stress and more fun, whether it’s the entire family or just you and your four legged friend.
All houses are fully fenced, allowing your pet to roam free in the privacy of your back yard. This is critical for your dog’s safety as well as your peace of mind.
Carpets have been removed where possible and are only found in some bedrooms. Therefore no more nasty stains, and no chance of hair left behind by previous tenants.
Plenty of shade & shelter is another feature, so your canine or feline companion can relax, protected from Brisbane’s beautiful, yet occasionally extreme weather conditions.
A back yard doggy door is included in some houses, so your pet won’t feel lonely and can come and go as they please should you choose to let them.
Where else can you get an authentic Queensland lifestyle, with privacy guaranteed, close to the water, CBD, airport and with all other important facilities right at your doorstep?
While we have a few pet rules just like you would at home (see our terms and conditions here), all houses are setup to make sure your pet is comfortable.
It is a good idea to ensure your pet has a collar on when they leave home so you can be notified when found if lost. When travelling it is handy to have an editable tag so at each place you stay along the way you can alter the address. Travelling with your feeding bowls and drinking containers gives the pet an added sense of security and more familiarity in their new surroundings. It is good to travel with a blanket for those cosy cuddles as pets are forbidden on furniture.
What facilities are available when travelling with my pet?
The facilities on offer in this local area provide for a dog friendly environment ensuring you have an enjoyable holiday with your four legged friend. With your dog on a lead with effective control, (unless at an off-lead park ) your dog is allowed in most public places. Some National Parks do not allow dogs on leads – however in our local area the council is pet friendly.
