For Sue Just and her partner Warren Atkinson being able to take their two dogs away on holidays was a must.
But the reality was there was little accommodation on offer at the time that enabled them to do so.
Rather than fight the problem, the two fixed it, buying up property in the picturesque spot of Lemon Tree passage and opening up dog friendly accommodation aptly named 2 Dogs Cottages.
With two units on offer, both welcoming dogs inside and out, holiday makers can enjoy all the comforts of home without having to leave pets behind or taking on the added cost of booking a kennel.
Fully fenced, both properties are clean, homely and well equipped. Nestled close by to parks, beautiful walks and the dog beach, there's plenty to see and to do with your four legged friend in tow.
The two bedroom units offer kitchen, bathroom laundry, BBQ, dog kennel and provide linen and all dog feed bowls, meaning less packing to take care of.
There's a TV, DVD player, stereo and reverse cycle air conditioning for complete comfort and a swathe of eating options if cooking doesn't appeal.
This home away from home provides tea, coffee and a complimentary breakfast basket and prides itself of offering a clean and welcoming space.
Bookings are available for a minimum of two night and can be made online.
