It’s no secret that more and more people are choosing to travel with their furry friends nowadays, instead of leaving them in the care of neighbours or dropping them off at a boarding kennel. And East Gippsland, with its sandy stretches of beaches, lakes and rivers – is a dog’s idea of heaven!

We’ve compiled a gallery with a few of our favourite pet friendly holiday homes that are securely fenced and welcoming to animals – making your holiday that much easier.

‘Nautilus’, a beautiful pet-friendly holiday home that is only metres from the water and has a delightful back yard set up ready for your furry friend.
‘Aqua Vista’ – with stunning water views and only a stroll to town making it appealing to you, your pet will love the big backyard and kennel!
Who wouldn’t want the private stretch of stunning lake at ‘Eagle Point Getaway’ all to themselves? We know your pets will!
Rustic, country-style living makes ‘Windsong’ a perfect, relaxing holiday home. Your dog will love the backyard and the ‘doggy doors’ that allow easy access in and out of the home!
Your pets will feel right at home at ‘Manchurian Place’, a stunning oriental inspired getaway on Raymond Island.
We know you’ll love ‘Tanjil’ – water views, breezy seaside decor and a grassy back yard and fenced upper-deck that your dog will love relaxing in!
