Enjoy the best in pet friendly accommodation!
Pet Let offers fantastic pet friendly accommodation in Port Elliot, Goolwa, Encounter Bay (near Victor Harbor), and near Sorell (close to Hobart in Tasmania).
Do you want a house that allows pets inside but doesn’t compromise on quality, fit out, views or cleanliness? Have you been frustrated that cat and dog friendly accommodation is often 30 years old with furniture from the Salvos? So were we! In 2009, we wanted to rent a nice house where we could take our two dogs (who were used to coming inside), with sea or lake views, lovely outdoor spaces with contemporary facilities, nice furniture, and a great ambience.
We had trouble finding anything that suited. So we decided to buy our own holiday house, set it up the way we wanted it, and then rent it out to other people with pets to enjoy when we could not. This worked well so we were able to add more properties. We were then approached to manage a holiday house for other owners so now we do that too!
See below for more information on our cat and dog friendly accommodation in Goolwa, Port Elliot, Victor Harbor and beyond.

29 Midden Road, Primrose Sands, Tasmania
2 bedroom, 1 bath. Absolute river front – not even a road between you and the river to spoil the view. A 30-second walk to a secluded little river beach. It truly is beautiful. House was refurbished in 2011.
Rear deck overlooks the river. Combustion stove for cosy winter snuggles. This house is relatively secluded and a little bit off the beaten track (45 minutes to Hobart CBD and 25 minutes to the airport).
As well as our pet friendly accommodation, we also have a short-term apartment at Norwood, just 5 minutes from the Adelaide CBD. Because of the strata corporation rules, this property is, unfortunately, NOT pet friendly. We have a lot of people who come to Adelaide for work or holidays (usually to visit family) stay there. If you have colleagues, family or friends coming to Adelaide that are looking for an affordable, comfortable place to stay near the city, this could be the spot! It has 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and a car park. The kitchen was new in 2012 – funky gloss red with stainless steel appliances.

Tips for Travelling with Pets
- Pack their bedding and favourite toys (this will help them to relax in the new space).
- Pack their usual pet food.
- Pack old towels/sheets or blankets to protect the furniture if your animals like to jump on sofas/beds.
- Check that the place you are staying allows pets (cats and/or dogs), and allows them inside.
- Check that the fences will be suitable for your dog.
- Check that your pet is up to date with vaccinations, flea and worm control and is healthy.
- Make sure they are wearing a collar with an ID tag before you leave.
- Once you arrive, keep your cat inside for a few days (so you will need a kitty litter tray). When walking, keep your dog on a lead for a few days until they are used to the area.
- Find the contact details and address of the nearest vet (just in case!).
- If your dog is a barker when you are absent, take your dog with you when you go out. It will be distressing for your dog and the neighbours if your dog is barking/howling for hours on end.
Tips for Car Travel with Pets
Give your cat or dog a small amount of food before you leave and some more when they arrive.
Exercise your dog before you leave.
If your dog gets anxious, rub a bit of lavender oil on your hands, then give them a massage.
Have a portable water bowl for them in the car (this can also be used when you take them to the beach/river or park).
Keep cats and small dogs in a cage and large dogs in a pet harness - otherwise they could be seriously injured in an accident.
Have an old towel for them to sleep on in case of car sickness.
Have regular breaks for your dog - at least every 3 hours.
In hot weather, do not leave your pets in the car for more than a few minutes. Make sure they have ventilation.
Talk to your pet in a reassuring, calming voice during the trip - particularly if they cannot see you.
