The friendly folk behind Mountolive Studio have thought of just about everything. Just 40 minutes from the CBD, this secluded cottage boasts ‘state-of-the-art’ dog-friendly facilities including enclosed dog areas, a raised dog bed, multiple toys to choose from, old sheets to cover the couches, a pet-friendly pool, food bowls, doggy doors to the outdoor areas and 20 acres of bushland for walkies.

There’s refreshments on arrival for both hounds (treats) and humans (beers and wine), and they’ll even make arrangements to pat, walk and feed your dog while you’re out wetting your whistle at the local pub or visiting a nearby National Park. 


The Getaway


For a pet that appreciates a great view, there’s the Getaway—Roleystone’s cute-as-hell cabin in the woods with 180 degree valley views. Built in the 1930s with beautiful bushland on all sides, every nook of the Getaway is filled with character. The ultimate relaxation destination, let sleeping dogs lie in front of the roaring fire, take in the views from the patio, get stuck into a book on the balcony, or take a dip in the pool surrounded by nature. 


Sam The Tiny Cabin


Cabin Sam proves it’s true what they say: size doesn’t matter. A tiny home on an expansive property, what Cabin Sam lacks in space it makes for in comfort and character. Sleeping four plus pets, there’s a generous sized bathroom, queen bed and two singles, a fully stocked kitchenette and outdoor BBQ. Expect visits from friendly horses, curious kangaroos and grazing sheep but don’t worry, there’s a fenced off area for dogs who aren’t so sure about farm animals and wildlife. 


Toodyay Art Shack


Set amongst the hills on the banks of the Avon River, Toodyay’s Art Shack is an award-winning contemporary take on a classic Aussie shed. The artwork and architecture of this funky place make it a steal at around $175 a night, packed with images and sculptures from Western Australia’s finest artists and esteemed Paul Wakelam Architects behind the design. Rustic yet modern, raw yet refined, the Art Shack sleeps up to eight people and dogs are free to explore the property both inside and out. 


Infinity Chalet

Margaret River

Let your dog be the third wheel and indulge in a little bit of luxury at Margaret River’s Infinity Chalet. Inside, this uber-romantic cabin is fitted out with a king bed, steam shower, spa bath, comfy couch (with covers for grubby paws), fully equipped kitchen and fireplace. Through the doogy door there’s private views of the river, ocean glimpses, towering gum trees and lush green grass for endless games of fetch. Though there’s no main roads nearby, the rural property is not fully fenced, so if you have a dog with a tendency to go walk-about it’s best to keep them on a lead. 


Sola Gratia Country Stay


If you’re a fan of all creatures great and small, Sola Gratia Country Stay is for you. Here at this homely farm stay in the Swan Valley, you’ll find roaming kangaroos, ducks on the dam, sheep, alpacas, a donkey and a miniature horse—all friendly and approachable. Animals aside, the pièce de résistance of Sola Gratia is the private lake in the centre of the space, complete with an adjacent enclosed yard for pets and a rowboat for your very own Notebook moment.  


The Studio


Just a couple of minutes from the centre of town, this clean, cosy, character-filled studio is the perfect weekend destination when you’re in need of a little zen. Surrounded by tranquil (and fully-fenced) gardens with views of the rolling hills in the background, you’ll feel instantly at home in The Studio. The hosts of this quaint stay are genuine dog lovers and will go above and beyond to ensure you and your fur baby have an enjoyable stay.


Seaside Apartment


Secure, spotless and stocked to the nines, save Gnarabup Beach’s chic Seaside Apartment for your next venture ‘douth’. As well as boasting high-end fittings, luxe furnishings, quality bedding and beautiful decor, there’s food and water bowls provided, a doggy door, a welcome treat in the form of a pigs ear and local dog beach a short five minute walk away. The ideal seaside escape for pets and their owners, it’s well worth the three hour drive.  


Rustic And Romantic Cabin


Two outdoor baths for synchronized soaking, a roaring fire for cosy cuddles, idyllic bushland and… a stripper pole? Whatever you get up to at this Rustic And Romantic Cabin just over an hour from the CBD, your pet will have a fine time sniffing, running and roaming around the fully enclosed property, with dedicated pet blankets for when the temperature drops. 


River Road Estate

Solitaire Homestead Strawbale


Leave the hustle and bustle of city life behind and spend a weekend at Solitaire. Located in the heart of the south west wine region, you wouldn’t know this peaceful, private home is just five minutes from both Dunsborough and Yallinyup. Take your pooch on a walk around the working farm to see the sheep, cattle and miniature ponies and then settle in for a drink on the deck under the stars.

The Notorious Meadows


If your four-legged friend weighs 800 kilograms, wears shoes and neighs, this one’s for you. Not only is your dog invited to stay at the Notorious Meadows, your horse will be welcomed, too, with fenced paddocks, a floodlit sand arena and barn for storage. Ten minutes south of Bindoon, this modern mansion sleeps up to 10 guests and includes a huge entertaining area, an outdoor fire pit, hot tub and external sauna. BYO horse.
