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 kitchen dining 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 all the 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.

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.

Salamander Cottage is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely home in quiet area, close to everything. We loved staying at Salamander Cottage for a long weekend as a couple travelling with our dog and boat. Our dog loved the property and it was great to be able to have her with us. The house was clean, tidy and spacious. The back area was fully fenced and more than sufficient for our dog. It was great to have the double lock up garage available to us to lock away our car and boat. The area was quiet and peaceful. There is a small grocery shop as well as eateries nearby. The Cottage was also nearby to the Soliders Point boat ramp. We found a nice dog friendly cafe (the Village Grind) at the nearby shops, however with full kitchen facilities at the Cottage there is no need to eat out. We would stay here again without hesitation and cannot wait to stay here again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Salamander Cottage is in a lovely location, only a short walk to the beach. The cottage is well maintained, clean and very comfortable. The courtyard was gorgeous and here we enjoyed a few lovely meals with our kids and dog. So close to everything yet so quiet. It was a pleasure to stay here and highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well what a pleasant surprise. The house was all it claimed to be. Very spacious, well appointed, clean, with near new appliances. More privacy than a unit and the best thing as we are both in our late 70's, NO STAIRS! Straight from the garage into the house!Would definately stay there again. Highly recommended.
