Melbourne is lauded for being a great pet-friendly city in Australia with good reason. Many of the parks and beaches allow entry of dogs, as long as they’re leashed. Some of these places include You Yangs Regional Park, Macedon Regional Park, Hepburn Regional Park, Maroondah Reservoir Park, Cape Conran Coastal Park, Marengo Beach, Johanna Beach, and Royal Beach. More commercial establishments in the city are also welcoming pets, with Southbank featuring many of these shops and restaurants. Do note that not all places welcome pets. Stickers are put on an establishment’s door to indicate that it’s pet-friendly so do be sure to keep an eye out for these markers. Similarly, not all accommodations are keen on accepting guests who are bringing their four-footed friends. Here’s a list of pet-friendly Airbnb rentals in Melbourne, Australia, to help you find a place to stay for you and your fluffy companion.
This two-bedroom apartment is spacious enough to fit not just five people but also two pets. While the host requires an additional fee per pet, she also provides pet beds, bowls, and even welcome snacks for them so they, too, will feel right at home. It’s not just the furry, four-legged family members who will feel that this rental is their home-away-from-home, though. The property has been furnished with all the amenities guests may need during their stay, including a kitchen, laundry facilities, and WiFi. The host even provides a complimentary breakfast upon arrival. Public transport, parks, and shops are just a few steps from here.
