Sea Horse Diamond Beach Wins 5 Paws Award

It was wagging tails, happy dog tongues and champagne corks popping last night, when Dianne and Chris Denton’s dog-friendly holiday vacation rental Sea Horse Diamond Beach was awarded the Five Paws Award for Dog Friendly Accommodation NSW in the highly competitive Holidaying With Dogs awards.

The Five Paws Awards have been running for over 30 years and are based upon a number of criteria including:

1. Pet friendliness
2. People friendliness
3. Location
4. Value

With the most important qualification being that dogs and their owners are made to feel like valued and welcome guests.

With over 1,000 votes received Australia-wide for dog friendly properties and 6 NSW finalists selected, Sea Horse Diamond Beach was a standout for its dog loving accommodation offering.

‘We love dogs – particularly big ones, we have a Doberman and a Boxer ourselves – so we know what dogs and their owners need and like as well as what makes a holiday property truly dog friendly and welcoming’ said Dianne Denton. 

‘Everything about Sea Horse Diamond Beach has been designed around being truly dog-friendly - from our doggy guests being welcome inside the whole house with their owners, to the huge dog safe yard and unique Doggy Day Pen, through to the dog bean bags, bedding and bowls provided for them here. And then there are the many dog-friendly beaches and dog-friendly community that surround us here. It all adds up to a wonderful holiday location for dogs and their families’.

‘We’ve travelled with our dogs and know how it can be a real challenge finding reasonable, let alone great, dog friendly accommodation. Add a big dog like a Doberman or a Boxer into the mix and it can become extremely difficult!

Many vacation rentals say they’re dog-friendly – but they aren’t really... At Sea Horse Diamond Beach our four-pawed guests have as much of a great holiday as their two-legged owners do’.

Sea Horse Diamond Beach is located just 3 hours north of Sydney, on the NSW mid North Coast and accommodates up to 10 people and 3 dogs in relaxed luxury.
