About Janice (Jan) Bell
My husband (Linley) and I moved to Ocean Grove in 2005 to set-up our holiday rental. We enjoy preparing and offering our holiday house to guests from near and far. We like to cook, garden and travel around Australia or overseas. Many of our guests have become good friends, they return time and again to our accommodation.
Janice (Jan) Bell purchased this House in 2006
Why Janice (Jan) Bell chose Ocean Grove
We love its closeness to the the beach, it's in a quiet residential area with made roads, and is close to all shopping and facilities. People love to visit the beach, and bring their dogs along, too. Everyone says this is the best place to stay - our guest book confirms how much they love Bells By The Beach.
What makes this House unique
Our place is totally pet-friendly, safe for children and dogs. It has a large garden, lockable single garage, extra parking, and peaceful garden views from all windows. We allow pets to stay and sleep indoors - most important for everyone.

Thanks jan and Lin for such a beautiful home so clean a credit to you both had a very lovely rest a beautiful beach not to far away Abby loved it we will be coming back
Thank you for your kind words about our clean, comfortable pet-friendly holiday home. We loved our first meeting with your fur-baby Abby who gave us a rowdy welcome, then made herself completely at home in our secure doggy garden.
It was a pleasure having you at Bells By The Beach, and we look forward to welcoming you on your next visit.
wonderful dog-friendly accommodation with lots of extras
Jan & Lin couldn't have done more to welcome us & ensure we had a great short break at Ocean Grove.We so enjoyed their very comfortable house & garden & all the extras they provided: dog treats, real coffee, real flowers from the garden, a munchie bowl (for humans) & more information, maps etc. of the local area than we could appreciate during our short stay. The gas log fire & throw rugs were winners in still chilly, Spring weather.
We walked to the beach the first morning & had a glorious time on the dog-friendly beach. The area is so rich in wonderful beaches & walks. Absolutely do-able, but we tended to go by car after that.
We've already raved about it to some of our doggy family & friends & would love to come back in a similarly "quiet" period.
A wonderful short break.
Cosy and relaxing stay
We recently had a very cosy and quiet stay at Bells by the Beach with our two puppies. It is a wonderful place to stay for yourselves and your pets. Everything is beautifully clean and all you need for some relaxation and gentle strolls to the beach not far away. Jan and Lin are wonderful hosts. We hope to return for another stay sometime in the future.
Dorothy and Rex, thank you for staying at our pet-friendly. The puppies (Sunny and Sandy) are absolutely gorgeous, we hope they enjoyed playing on the beach.
We were delighted that you returned for a second visit, and we hope to see you again in the future.
We do our best to ensure all our guests and fur-kids have a great time at Bells By The Beach.
Our 8th stay says it all! Truly pet-friendly home away from home for fur babies and humans. Great accommodation with all mod-cons. Clean and well presented and maintained. Would recommend Bells by the Beach to anyone.
Rhona, Hank and Jacob.... you are awesome guests who love everything we do at Bells By The Beach - after 8 stays we agree we must be doing something right!
Our wish-list - that all guests looking for the best pet-friendly will book with our property where they will see that all the accolades handed to Bells By The Beach pet-friendly Holiday House Ocean Grove, are definitely true!
Thank you so much for your support.
One of the best dog friendly properties around.
We loved our stay at Bells by the Beach and would readily recommend this property to friends and relatives. The property was one of the cleanest we had stayed in and had many little touches like treats for dogs and humans, dog beds, dog towels even dog grooming products. Our hosts greeted us when we arrived and encouraged us to ring if anything was a problem. The property wasn’t very far to the Ocean Grove shops and our dogs loved the beach and the nearby wetlands not to mention the large front garden at the house. If we ever come back this way for a holiday with our dogs we would certainly book this property again.
Thank you so much for your kind words, Barbara.
We pride ourselves on the cleanliness and maintenance of our accommodation and love to have it pristine clean, not just clean, for all guest arrivals.
We also love leaving little treats for humans and dogs, and providing a wide range of local information.... this all goes toward making a holiday a memorable experience.
We hope to see you and your friends again in the future.
