Dog on Beach

With plenty of dog parks and dog friendly beaches around the Sunshine Coast, there is no reason to leave your furry friend home on your family holiday to the Sunny Coast. So, if you’re convinced you need to bring your fur baby along on the trip – next you’re going to need to book some Sunshine Coast pet friendly accommodation.

I’m not going to lie to you here, when it comes to Sunshine Coast dog friendly accommodation – there isn’t a massive choice. However, you may be pleasantly surprised by just how much good quality accommodation IS available. 

The next thing you need to know is that pretty much all the pet friendly Sunshine Coast accommodation is large private homes. So they do tend to a fair bit more expensive than your average budget family accommodation on the Sunshine Coast.

The good news though is that there is pet friendly accommodation in all areas of the Sunshine Coast. So, no matter which Sunshine Coast beach you have your heart set on, you’re likely to find a great place for your trip. Plus, given they are mostly private homes; accommodation is spacious and often you’ll get your very own private swimming pool too. Winning!!!

In this guide, I’ve listed not only the best family friendly accommodation on the Sunshine Coast but also the best pet friendly accommodation. All these places are in great locations, within an easy walk to all local amenities and have great onsite amenities for the entire family.

So cancel the pet sitter and pack Fido’s things – he’s coming on your Sunny Coast family holiday!

When it comes to pet friendly accommodation options, your best bet is option Airbnb. Airbnb lists the biggest range of pet friendly holiday homes; Sunshine Coast has and at a great rate too.

When searching for Airbnb, Sunshine Coast pet friendly rentals, click filters and scroll down to the House Rules section. Click the ticket box “Pets Allowed” to ensure you only see properties that will allow you to bring your pet.

The only downside about Airbnb is that you generally have to pay for the accommodation straight up and whether or not you cancel your booking depends on the individual listing, so be sure to check this out before making your booking.

If you have never used Airbnb before, then click here and sign up and grab yourself $50 off your first booking. If you’ve used Airbnb before, but your partner hasn’t, sign them up so you can get this discount.  Otherwise click here to see what’s available in the area (remember to filter for pet friendly properties).

Booking.com

Personally I prefer to use Booking.com over Airbnb where I can. While the range maybe a little more limiting then Airbnb, I like it because in most cases you don’t need to pay anything, upfront AND you can cancel if you change your mind or find a better deal elsewhere.

I have provided links to Booking.com for the above pet friendly accommodation, or you can click here.
