Pet Friendly Accommodation Lorne
When searching for your accommodation, always keep in mind what kind of vacation you want and your own necessities as well as your pets. Keep in mind location, facilities and the driving or walking distance from the beach, restaurants and sights you want to see. If you are travelling by car, you will want somewhere with good parking options or a secure garage.
Always search online and compare prices and opinions. It is incredibly important to read reviews and see what people say about a place before booking it. People are honest and will tell you their experiences, good or bad.
Check out all the photos available of the accommodation carefully before reserving in order to make sure it has everything it claims and looks comfy for both you and your pet. You will want to book somewhere with a terrace or other outside area where your animal can freely go outside and go to the toilet during the night or when you are not there to take them out.
