Sandy Bay Chalet is a unique boutique accommodation and a haven for all pampered, loved, spoilt dogs and their loving owners. The Chalet is based in Sandy Bay, close to dog friendly beaches (off leash and on leash). Sandy Bay Chalet is nestled in our beautiful grounds of 70 Waimea Avenue, Sandy Bay, Hobart. The Chalet has its own beautiful, fully enclosed yard. We live on the premises and are here to welcome our guests and make your stay more enjoyable. If you need anything, then feel free to ask us.  To enjoy a 360 degree panorama view of our beautiful Chalet, use your mouse to scroll around the image below, but for an even larger view simply click on “view larger image” below the map, and take a guided tour.
