Finding a pet friendly holiday house to stay in can be difficult and no-one knows this better than Heather McChesney and Chris Simpson.
Parents to Mysha, an eleven year old Border Collie cross, Heather and Chris prefer to take vacations that they can all enjoy, and they know they are not alone.
"Since launching 'Pets Can Come Too', we have been overwhelmed by the number of people that have expressed gratitude in finding holiday homes that take pets."
Pets Can Come Too is based on the Kapiti Coast, but our pet friendly advertisers are truly New Zealand wide. We book our own holidays using the listings in this website, and are pleased to say that Mysha has received a warm welcome wherever we have stayed.
We welcome all feedback, and if you have any homes that you think should be listed on this site, we'd love to hear from you.
Meanwhile consider this letter from a pet owner seeking pet friendly holiday accommodation:
I would very much like to bring my dog with me. He is well-groomed and very well behaved. Would you be willing to permit me to keep him in my room with me at night?
An immediate reply came from the pet friendly holiday accommodation owner, who wrote:
SIR: I've been operating this pet friendly holiday accommodation for many years.
In all that time, I've never had a dog steal towels, bedclothes, silverware, or pictures off the walls.
I've never had to evict a dog in the middle of the night for being drunk and
disorderly. And I've never had a dog run out on a hotel bill.
Yes, indeed,your dog is welcome in my pet friendly holiday accommodation.
And, if your dog will vouch for you, you're welcome to stay here, too.
We hope you will enjoy many happy pet friendly holidays!
Heather & Chris
