Wairoro Park - Russell
The closest thing you can get to dog heaven on earth.
Thanks to the private beach, dogs are free to swim at anytime. We were based in one of the beachfront chalets, and in the morning would often open the gate on the deck, sit and enjoy breakfast while watching the dogs play on the lawn in front or take themselves down to the water for a swim.
Its the perfect spot for a relaxing getaway with like minded people. While its not restricted to people with dogs, you're heading somewhere where people expect dogs so you're not likely to experience any animosity towards them being there and enjoying the space like everyone else.
The accommodation is comfortable, although a little dated. The properties aren't fenced, but the gate on the deck does mean you can keep your dog contained within the property when needed. Just enjoy the freedom here!
