About Polly
Our special CAT rates are $30 per night and $15 for each additional cat. We will adjust the rates when you book. OUR NUMBER ONE FOCUS WHEN MINDING YOUR FURRY AND HAIRY FAMILY MEMBERS IS TO HAVE THEM FEELING CONTENTED, SECURE, HAPPY AND LOVED. WE ALWAYS ACHIEVE THIS BY BEING WITH THEM FOR EXTENDED PERIODS EACH DAY, ESPECIALLY IN THE DAYS AFTER THEY FIRST ARRIVE. WE BOTH LOVE AND HAVE A REAL AFFINITY WITH ANIMALS. WE WERE THE KIDS WHO TOOK HOME STRAY ANIMALS AND BEGGED OUR PARENTS TO ALLOW US TO KEEP THEM. NOTHING MUCH HAS CHANGED.
WE ARE RETIRED AND HAVE MUCH TIME TO DEVOTE TO YOUR PETS. . REALLY ITS WHAT WE LOVE TO DO AS WEVE BEEN ANIMAL LOVERS FOR OVER 60 YEARS NOW.
WE WILL EXPLAIN HOW WE LOOK AFTER DOGS ,CATS AND YOUR ELDERLY CANINE OR FELINE FAMILY MEMBERS. Please check out our ratings and reviews and photos.
OUR CANINE FRIENDS:-
Our doggie visitors just LOVE being here. Included in the daily charge most days they have a walk tailored to their needs and your wishes, plus bone broth and/or a meaty bone. Their walk is usually around an hour and is sometimes it's a very slow walk cause they have so many smells to smell and they receive so much important information for themselves through the scent left by other dogs. This includes how big the dog is and how long ago he left the scent. They in turn have their scents to leave as their way of communicating with all of the other dogs. We are in no hurry and understand how important this is to them.
Their walk usually includes off leash times at a quiet area where they play fetch and generally have a great run around. This with owners permission of course. We need to know that they won't bolt.
We have heaps of fun together exploring bush tracks, large parks, with walking tracks to walk etc. We provide water on our walks.
They also are given a meaty raw bone and/or a serving of home made delicious broth each day. This is so healthy for them, especially good for their joints and general health. ( we do sell it if interested ). google the benefits and watch your pets health improve - and yes ours is made with cert organic apple cider, orange vegetables and special herbs to enhance health.
At home we have a salt water pool where some dogs just love to frolic and play catch. always supervised. Also some big hard plastic pools filled with water to play in. Fresh water every day in many different areas.
There are two verandahs to snooze on, one covered and with a couch and comfy rug. We have downstairs especially set up for doggies at night where they are inside and safe, but we are very flexible with sleeping arrangements as well. Lots of times they are following us around and we are having big chats and they are always welcome inside on a woollen rug that's just for them, maybe watching Tv at night with us. We have a two level yard with all high fences that are escape proof. We are happy and able to fit in with any special needs or requests. We are happy to give medication. We always brush our doggy visitors. Our special certified organic warm shampoo and then conditioner baths are lovely. Your doggy will return to you looking beautiful and feeling comfortable and freshly brushed. $27.00.
Bring their beds, rugs, special toys and balls and of course food. Anything that will help us help your dog to feel happy. We require your vets name and number.
Your phone and email.
All food that they will need. We have freezer space for raw food.
If your little one is anxious it may help for you to wear an old tshirt around for a few days and bring it with you for them at night.
Let us know their likes and dislikes - storms, fireworks etc.
We love questions so feel free to ask. We want you to be happy and secure with all aspects of your pets holiday with us.

OUR FELINE FRIENDS:-
We are very excited to offer our holiday resort for cats to you. We think it's an excellent space for your kitties. Maybe the best in Brisbane according to some our little visitors owners.
Your little feline will fully approve of having full access to both large indoor and professionally netted outdoor areas, both of which are totally secure.
Indoors, the rumpus room is airy and spacious with lots to do - or maybe do nothing at all!! With a comfy couch to rest on, a double decker bed, a cat tree, a soft shaggy rug, many hidey holes and cat toys and cardboard boxes will have him/her spoilt for choice and feeling that it's just like home. .. there is even a new big secure fishtank with many interesting fish for he or she to practice catching ( and a comfy cushion to sit on while watching the fish)
While after stepping outside their whiskers will twitch with excitement to see scratching and climbing logs, many perches at different heights to jump on, highish walks, catnip, cat grass and catmint, lemongrass as well as 2 shallow fish ponds.
All plants planted are non toxic to animals. There are perches overlooking the street so your furry little sticky beak can check out all of the local happenings around him. This most cats love to do! Or they may rather just yawn, stretch and chill out in a quiet area and just have a sunbake...... and why not?
All walks and perches are made of untreated wood.
We will spend lotsa time each day with your little pet as this is what we love to do. We are both retired.
No cramped spaces here, our valued pet guests will have room to run, jump and stretch their legs and feel the sun on their backs. To be inside or outside whatever they prefer.
We will treat them as we treat our own pets. Our friends call our place the pet nirvana.
We ask that your cat is healthy, trained to use kitty litter or toilet outside.
Bring their favourite kitty litter and food.
That you inform us of your pets likes and dislikes and preferences so we can better provide a happy place.
Bring special toys, rugs or baskets that would help them feel secure.
We will pick up and deliver your cat home to you for an extra charge depending on distance. We have 2 regular and one large travel box here.
SPECIAL NEEDS ANIMALS
Special needs animals and older animals, and very large older dogs especially welcomed and will be looked after with great care and sensitivity. We will spend time just sitting with your elderly pet talking quietly and stroking them if that's what they need. We will be advised by you of course. We will take an elderly dog for a short walk to the park close by where he or she can have some sun or lie in the shade and watch the birds and children playing. If your cat is very old we will take her outside to get some sun and air and maybe a little play in our outdoor space. We are happy to give oral medications but not injections.
We are happy for you to check out our spaces and meet us both, or phone us to ask questions.
If you have many different animals to be looked after we would welcome them. Better rates may apply.
