Hidden away among lorikeet filled trees, is Salty Dog Cottage, a new, beachside, pet friendly offering. Salty Dog combines a laid-back ambiance within luxury accommodation and is a five-minutes’ walk away from two beautiful beaches – the world renowned Kings Beach with its patrolled swimming areas and the dog-friendly Shelly Beach. The cottage has a casual seaside vibe which embraces its natural surroundings and aims to give our guests an exceptionally relaxed experience.
The cottage has been set up to sleep 4 adults and 2 children. The adults are accommodated in a Queen bed in the main and 2 King Singles in bedroom 2, while 2 children are accommodated in a bunk bed in bedroom 2.
The cottage is fully equipped for a self-catering stay, however guests are required to bring their own linen and towels. We supply pillows, mattress protectors and blankets.
We welcome couples, families, and their pets, to stay and soak up the sunny salt air, the parrots and birdlife, and be lulled to sleep by the sound of the sea. Ideally suited to those looking for a peaceful get away, Salty Dog will exceed your holiday expectations.
Situated 100 metres from the full time patrolled Kings Beach and 200 metres from beautiful dog friendly Shelly Beach, Salty Dog gives our guests easy access to beaches, an oceanfront pool, and a wonderful walking track along the headland.
The cottage is around the corner from the Kings Beach Tavern and the recently renovated Mets Surf Club; stumbling distance from pubs, beachside restaurants, funky coffee shops and the local Shelly Beach Corner Shop.
Beachside walking tracks connect our guests one way to Moffat Beach, Tooway Creek and Dicky Beach and the other way to Happy Valley, Bulcock Beach and further along to the quiet Pumicestone Passage waters of Golden Beach.
