Pet friendly holidays

Pets enjoy a holiday too - and avoid those expensive kennel fees!

Salamander Cottage is pet friendly. We have a fenced courtyard off the living areas which can allow your dog to come in and out of the house. The courtyard has sun protection with a covered awning, but captures sea breezes so is a pleasant place to be! . If you prefer the windowed, light, double lock-up garage can be a secure place for bedding your pet at night.

Bring your dog's own bedding.

Enjoy long walks together in the quiet streets of Salamander Bay and Soldiers Point. Dog swimming beach a few minutes away by car.

A pet fee applies per stay of $25 per pet.

Full house - not a unit - not sharing a house!

Why stay in a noisy unit or resort? Enjoy the benefits of Port Stephens without comprising space and comfort.

Want a bay beach near-by - Georges Reserve has quiet water - great for small children, and canoes, and peaceful walks. The reserve has a modern playground equipment, toilets, bbq facilities and views!

Worried about stairs? Salamander Cottage has one step internal access.

Want easy car parking? Salamander Cottage has a lockable double garage and parking for two cars or boats side by side in the driveway, all for easy unpacking.

Nice homely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Salamander cottage, it is a homely little place with good facilities in a quiet spot that is close to all the main attractions in Nelson Bay at a short drive or walk.

Being able to bring our dog made the experience so much better, he is part of our family too and normally having to board him while we go away is not as fun.

Thoroughly recommend staying here!

Great house!

  • 4 of 5

We have just finished staying the weekend at Salamander cottage and loved it. The kids and dogs loved the space and all the activities that the house provided. The secure backyard was also comforting factor. The house was exceptionally clean and tidy and had a very welcoming homely feel when we first walked in.

Thanks Robyn and Alan!
