The Perfect Doggie Holiday

[dt_gap height=”10″]

Just 95km north of Sydney you will find our favourite holiday place, Avoca Beach. This amazing little piece of paradise on the Central Coast of NSW is just perfect for doggie holidays, and you can even take your human companions with you.

The pet friendly Avoca Beach 1940’s beach house is positioned right on Avoca Lake, it is literally at your front fence. As you walk out the front gate, you can walk 5 metres to have a dip in the lake, or for the more adventurous, you can walk along the sand over to Avoca Beach which is only about 50 metres away.

All doggies are allowed off leash to the North of Avoca Beach and every early morning and late afternoon, you will find so many friendly doggies playing and having fun in sun, sand and surf. Avoca Lake, which is perfect for doggies that would rather chill out and cool off hanging in the lagoon is perfect for doggies like me. Or if you are more of a ratbag like Bobby, you may prefer surfing the waves along the beach. There is so much for us doggies to enjoy and we just love it there, there is even a large grassed sports oval right next to the lake, less than 20 metres away.

At the end of a fun filled day you can chill out on the front lawn of the beach house under the magnificent pine trees soaking in the atmosphere. You can enjoy a huge range of water sports right on your doorstep.

This very private and original Australian beach house sleeps a family of eight comfortably. With two double and one bunk bedroom, two living areas (one with point blank water views) and huge fenced lawns making it ideal for the whole family and safe and secure for us doggies.

There is no need for the car everything is within walking distance, there is a variety of restaurants and cafes, and some are even pet friendly. We spend each morning enjoying doggie cappuccinos at our favourite cafe. There is a post office, newsagent, pharmacy, bakery and mini-mart. Avoca Beach also has a historic cinema, a hotel, bowling club, motel and Caravan Park. Everything our humans need for a relaxing holiday with us.

The sunrises and sunsets are just magnificent and we are always tuckered out at the end of each day.  It is a very special place for us and we hope you and your two legged friends can take you there one day. You will have a magical time and who knows we might even be there to hang out with you. If you are looking to stay you can book the Avoca Beach House at www.stayz.com.au “Avoca’s 1940’s Beach House”, otherwise spend the day there with plenty of park space and easy beach access. Woofas, Bindi & Bobby
