Saltaire Cottages
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Dog friendly accommodation can be hard to find, particularly if you're just after a place for two, not a huge house that sleeps 10+. Saltire Blue is a sweet little two bedroom cottage with a small, fully fenced yard ideal for a couple's getaway with their pet. There is a small lawn area and a covered verandah with BBQ. The house itself is cute, clean and comfortable with a small kitchen and laundry, bathroom with bath, and a living room with two small couches. The TV and stereo are circa 1990s but they're fine, there's also a DVD player. They provided bread, condiments, juice, milk and plunger coffee/tea breakfast, as well as towels and bathroom products which was a nice extra. The cottage is about 30 seconds walk from the beach cliffs, and a further 5 mins walk to the beach proper, and to the wonderful Star of Greece restaurant. Close drive to McLaren Vale wineries, Willunga and Maslin beach. Would definitely stay here again when travelling with our dog - although the bed was a bit hard, not sure I could have slept on it a third night!

Glad that you both (and your dog) enjoyed Saltaire Blue cottage and how close the beach and Star of Greece cafe is . We haven't had a complaint about the bed before but will test it ourselves next visit . Our adjacent Saltaire Yellow cottage has beds that we purchased when building so we can definitely recommend those . It is a native garden that doesnt have a lawn for your dog ; but has a run that is fully fenced that most dogs seem to like. Cheers, J+R

We had a function to attend in nearby McLaren Vale so decided along with a couple of friends to stay in the area, and booked this cottage mainly because it was one of the few pet-friendly places in the area, that allowed dogs to be inside. It is a lovely cottage, all rooms were very clean, the kitchen is well stocked with cutlery, crockery and implements and breakfast provisions are provided. There is also a barbeque there which we used. The lounge has a selection of DVDs, videos and board games, so we had stuff to do, as it rained on our 2nd evening there! It is very well located near the lovely beach at Port Willunga, and is also fairly close to Aldinga Beach shopping centre, which is a few minutes drive away. We all enjoyed our stay, including the dog.
