Bring your best friend to Blue Johanna Cottages

Dogs on HolidayIt’s definitely a dog’s life! I don’t just get to come on holidays with my family, I have my own private courtyard complete with a cosy kennel. Inside a comfy bed is waiting for me beside the wood fire with my own towels, shiny bowls and yummy treats.

Once we’re all settled, in we only have a short drive to Johanna Beach where I can run along the sand and play in the waves. Back at the cottages, there's a big dam I can swim  in and horses to say hello to. At night, if my people are feeling adventurous, we can go for a walk up the hill and look for our own special glow worm patch!

My family have their own comfy queensize bed, a really big spa bath (I hope they don’t put me in it!) and they can sit on the couch and watch me snooze in front of the wood fire. They also get some treats like I do. Waiting for them when they arrive is a yummy continental breakfast basket.

The resident pooches, Bodi and Penny, may even come up and say hello and show me around their playground. The property backs onto a large pine forest with lots of tracks just waiting to be explored. I am not allowed into any of the national park areas of the Great Ocean Road but I am allowed to spend the day in my own private courtyard while my people go exploring.

You really must ask your family to bring you on a holiday to Blue Johanna Cottages.
