Pet Friendly

It is a wonderful time to be had by all including the family dog.   We wouldn’t be without them.  We have lots of homes that allow pets (cats as well if they are used to travelling).  Not all homes are securely fenced so you do need to be mindful of this when booking. We do ask, naturally, that you be a responsible dog owner and clean up after your dog outside and inside.  If it’s a fluffy one please vacuum up excessive hair.  We ask that your dog is not aggressive, not a furniture scratcher or doesn’t dig the garden up.   Otherwise we are very happy to include them in your holiday.  There is no charge for bringing your pets, unless of course there is damage or excessive cleaning and we reserve the right to charge extra.

Walks

  • The Pines to the Kowhai river: Just opposite Ocean Ridge there is a pine forest. This is very popular for dog walks as it provides a shady walk on a hot day and also backs onto the beach.  (45 minutes -1 hour return). It’s also right next to the Kowhai river mouth so your dog can have a paddle in the river as well.

 

  • South Bay car park to the Pines: Alternatively, you can park at the first car park on the right as you enter South bay (directly opposite the racecourse) and walk along the track to the Pines. Just remember to bring a cap on the sunny days!  (40 minutes return)

 

  • Town beach walking track: There is a track that runs from the town center across the bridge from the car park all the way up past whale watch and new world. This is a great walk to take the dog in the early mornings as you can watch the sun rise.

 

  • Town to the Pier: Lots of locals like to walk their dogs along the beach from town to the Pier restaurant. The views are beautiful and you can have a beverage and some food at the local pub with some amazing views. Simply park in the main town car park and walk past the i-site till you reach the Pier (1 hour return or longer with lunch)

Remember to Leash the beast. It is important to keep your dog on a leash at all times on Kaikoura beaches due to the nesting dotterels which lay their eggs on the shore, especially in South bay. Often the locals will surround a nest with driftwood and sticks to mark them out but always keep an eye out just in case. Not only that but seals do tend to land occasionally!

Unfortunately dogs are not permitted on the peninsula walk due to the seals and protected birds in the area.

Dogs are only permitted up Mt Fyffe with a DOC permit.
