Vaal Marina, Gauteng

This trip was a little different as the whole pack joined so the rating system was put to it's ultimate test.

This AirBnB did not disappoint. There were 8 humans and 8 dogs on this adventure and it never felt like that many legs were in one house.

There was PLENTY space for us all, which included a room and en suite bathroom for each person or couple, the pups were happy to share the garden as their en suite.



The Dog Stuff

We spent almost all of the time on the patio and outside. 

If the view of the Vaal isn't enough then the entertainment area with a foosball table is enough to keep you there. 

There are loungers for you to laze around and sleep on and before I get carried away with why this place was so great for humans I need to get back to the pups. 

The home is massive but the plot of land it is on is on another level. There is no limit for how far the pups can run and play but the most important part is that the house itself and the area around the pool is fenced off so unless you go for a walk, the pups will not disappear




Having said that, our little Arthur did manage to sneak through the fence a few times BUT the land is so big that he never was lost or gone for too long.

We still suggest you keep an eye on the little ones ;)

Harvey and Hugo were big enough to not fit through but they also were recovering from the heat on the tiles so they were too distracted to even try run away. 

Another aspect to take into account is that the rooms are all upstairs, quite a tall staircase, so we tried to restrict Harvey, Hugo and Gabby from coming upstairs too often as they did struggle with the up and down. 





If we weren't laying by the pool and playing with the dogs, we headed down to the dam, which was about a 300m walk.

The next house is so far away that running into another dog or a human was just not even on our minds. We had the whole water's edge to ourselves and the dogs took full advantage on the multiple occassions that we did head down to the dam.

We even managed to get Lily, Brie and Arthur into the water with Moby and Mia.




You are getting 15 beds, 5 bedrooms and 5,5 bathrooms.

A beautifully, modern kitchen with everything you need. We cooked some delicious meals and ate family style at the stunning dining room table. 

There is no wifi but we weren't there for that so we didn't really notice it. 

The home is tiled downstairs so wet and muddy puppies from the pool and dam were not a problem. The couches were also made for pet friendly accomodation and the dogs LOVED it.

We will be going back as soon as we can because WHAT A TREAT for the humans and the pups.
