Yes, we’re pet-friendly
Don’t you hate it when you book accommodation that says it’s ‘pet-friendly’ only to find that your furkids aren’t allowed inside the house? Well you can relax this time because Yondah Beach House is genuinely pet-friendly. We understand that your dog is an important member of the family (our rottie is a total princess) so yes, of course your dog is allowed inside… we’ll even leave out a small doggy gift to say ‘welcome’! With over 300 acres and 2km of coastline to explore, Yondah really is a dogs’ paradise!
In the house
Two stainless steel dog dishes are supplied but you’ll need to bring your dog’s food and bedding etc. Although dogs are allowed inside, we ask that you never leave them alone in the house. We also ask that they not be allowed on the furniture, and that you don’t allow them to chase wildlife. And of course all dog poo should be properly disposed of in the rubbish.
What about other pets?
We’ve welcomed many different pets at Yondah including dogs, cats, horses, birds and a turtle. Of course common sense should prevail at all times to prevent damage to the house, garden or the fragile coastal environment.
The property is fenced on three sides with standard wire ‘farm’ fencing, however there’s no fencing on the ‘coast’ end where the house is located. So if your dog is a potterer and happy to stay with you, then no problem, especially as the house is 1km from the road. But if your dog is a wanderer or kangaroo chaser, he/she will need to be leashed. Please also note that we have no fenced area that’s suitable for ‘leaving’ your dog as this practice increases the risk of snake bite.
Because Yondah is located in a remote and natural coastal environment, snakes may be encountered in the warmer weather between October and March. For this reason, we suggest that dogs are kept on-leash when out walking at this time.
”This is by far the best getaway home we have ever stayed. Bringing our dogs has made our holiday that much more meaningful.”
