4 North Island Pet Friendly Stays!

Trying to organise a holiday that includes your furry family member can be hard! Good news is pet-friendly accommodation options are growing. And with a focus on domestic tourism for the foreseeable future, hopefully more accommodation providers will begin to offer pet-friendly accommodation.

Here at Paws Passport we love to travel and we want to encourage and support people taking holidays with their pet. To do this we’ve reached out to Pets Can Come Too, a Kiwi organisation listing pet-friendly holiday accommodation across the country. There are some great rates available so if you’ve been thinking about taking a holiday in our own backyard, now’s the time! Here are some of our favourite listings for the North Island.

This modern escape has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and can accommodate up to 8 people. Whether you’re interested in the national park, the mountain or just relaxing; this is a great place to base yourself.

Prices range from $186-$648. However, the most expensive rate currently listed for this year is $516. Nights for Winter are around the $400 mark and this drops to about $200 from November. You do need to pay an extra $23 to bring your pets with you.
