The Sunshine Coast is a fantastic holiday destination for the whole family, where nobody gets left behind.
Here you’ll find a plethora of dog-friendly accommodation to choose from with so many off-leash dog parks, dog-friendly beaches and loads of walking trails to keep your itinerary full.
Your four-legged friend deserves a holiday too, so we’ve put together a list of some of the best pet-friendly accommodation spots on the Sunshine Coast.
Lake Weyba Noosa Lodge & Kangaroos
Guests love Lake Weyba Noosa Lodge & Kangaroos holiday accommodation as a pet-friendly lodge in Peregian Beach. Did we mention it’s within walking distance of the ocean?
There is free Wi-Fi, but you’ll probably be more interested in the two-person canoe free to use on Lake Weyba. Just make sure your pup doesn’t get motion sickness.
The lodge has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, with a fully equipped kitchen and dining area. Enjoy meals or sundowners out on the terrace with vast views of the gardens. Alternatively, light up the BBQ facilities in the onsite gardens before heading out for a relaxed day on the greens or bike ride with available equipment included.
Marcoola House offers excellent pet-friendly accommodation Sunshine Coast tourists continue to choose. Plus it’s only a short walk from Marcoola Beach and the popular Surf Life Saving Club. But the 7-sleeper has everything you could possibly need, with a solar-heated swimming pool and outdoor shower, table tennis and PlayStation — so you never need to leave the holiday home!
The resort oozes luxury, with air conditioning in all three rooms, complete with chiropractic beds for maximum comfort. Even Fido can sleep comfortably on the large trampoline dog beds, and you’ll sleep easy knowing there’s a fully fenced yard.
As a nice finishing touch, the modern granite kitchen comes fully equipped with a dishwasher and espresso coffee machine. There’s absolutely nothing missing from this location, making it a winner for all pet-friendly holidays.
Saltwater Villas, located in Mooloolaba, has three Waterfront Villas, a Waterfront House, a Garden View Villa, as well as studio rooms upstairs that have private balconies. The Villas have a full kitchen and laundry, while the studio rooms only have tea and coffee facilities.
The Waterfront House has a private pool, and the other villas have a pool to share and the doggies can socialise together. There is also a spa on the location, so treat yourself to a massage or facial while you enjoy your stay at the Saltwater Villas.
Blackwattle Farm B&B
Book a quaint farm stay at Blackwattle Farm just five minutes from Beerwah and Australia Zoo.
This tiny house is on wheels and has two lofts with one queen bed and two singles, which are reachable by climbing up the stairs and ladder. There’s a small kitchenette, and the bathroom has a shower, vanity and a modern no-smell compost toilet off the deck.
The huge outdoor entertainment area has a barbecue and fire pit to enjoy under the stars. Embrace a free breakfast, and you can help feed the farm animals theirs, too. Your doggos will blend right in with the alpacas, pigs, cows, goats and chickens.
The Blackwattle Farm B&B has very special features that will make your holiday a memorable one.
This exquisite guest house retreat has five self-contained rooms, each with their own spa tub, private pool, fireplace and deck with views out over the pool. Order room service or grab some of the free breakfast on offer. This lifestyle retreat boasts beautiful tropical gardens with fish ponds, and an oasis pool with a lounge bar and Bali huts.
Book in for a pamper day of deep-tissue or Swedish massages, enjoy the Turkish bath/hammam, opt for the red cedar hot rocks sauna or try sensory deprivation in the floatation tank.
The pet-friendly accommodation at Ayla Escape allows you to take a step back, slow down, and reconnect.
Avalon Noosa Farm Cottages
These self-contained farm cottages include two dating back to the 1920s, and you can choose between four to six sleepers. Each has a fully-functioning kitchen with fridge, microwave and stove top.
Out of all the pet-friendly hotels on offer, this one is the most perfect for nature lovers, as the pet-friendly accommodation is situated close to Mount Pinbarren, the hidden paradise of the local hinterland. Explore the scenic Noosa Trail via bushwalking, horse riding or bike riding, and your furry friend will love letting off steam in the vast grasslands.
Experience stunning views of the countryside and nine mountains, and look up at the calm and clear night skies to see the stars and the moon like you’ve never seen them before. Avalon Cottages are a great way to enjoy the Sunshine Coast Hinterlands.
Pacific Escape offers two villas with panoramic ocean views and the salty sea breeze. Visitors can watch the sunrise over the ocean with a coffee out on the large balcony.
Situated in Buddina, the villas are conveniently directly across from the designated dog-friendly beach where they can explore and splash happily off their leashes.
Both villas have four bedrooms on split levels, with a fully fenced off yard and lockable garage for you to store your boat or surfboards. The villas are fully equipped with everything a holiday home could possibly need and more, including a barbecue, washing machine and dryer and outdoor shower.
Beach Stone House
The Beach Stone House is perfect for a pet-friendly, family holiday. The house can cater for numerous families thanks to the four full bedrooms, as well as another room that has sofa beds. There are four bathrooms, a grand entertaining deck, swimming pool, half basketball court, tennis court, and even resident kangaroos.
All bedrooms have air conditioning to make the hot summer nights manageable, and the main living room has a cosy fireplace. Although the house is lovely, you’ll likely spend most of your time in the great outdoors, next to the pool, or on the terrace and barbecue until late.
Spend some quality time with the family at Beach Stone House on Noosa’s North Shore for a pet-friendly experience no one will forget.
