Overall Pet-Safe Rating: 5*
Aloe Cottage rates a very high 5 pet-safe rating from us. Fully enclosed, no place to escape. The neighbouring cottage does have a very cute and social dog, but there is not way for them to get through to each other.
Grounds: Own, private space. The garden is in an elongated U-shape around the cottage. It is a fair size, and just enough to stretch the legs.
Enclosed: Yes, with chicken wire fencing.
Other dogs: The neighbouring cottage has the most adorable little Corgi who is very social and waits by the fence to greet all holidaying dogs. Your dogs will be able to see him and nose-touch through the fence, so if they become a little obsessive and 'barky' without settling down, this might not be a relaxing stay for you. Our dogs quickly settled with the neighbour - possibly as he is so docile.
Walking dogs on property: The property itself is in a residential estate. It is possible to walk your dogs around the neighbourhood, but there may be other loose dogs around. The best would be to visit Yzerfontein beaches if you want more activity for your dogs.
Would we leave our dogs alone and go to the shop? No pets may be left unattended at the cottages at any time while the owner goes out on excursions in the area.
