Are there pets at your facility? Can we bring our pets with us?
There are three gentle, kind dogs that live at the Mermaid Retreat. They are Kayu, Ursula and Oliver and all are good with people of all ages and sizes. Please know that they are real, live animals and will run away to protect themselves. For those who do not wish to interact with our K-9 friends, we will keep them away from the guest area. Our dogs are usually in the securely fenced yard that surrounds our private residence.
We do not allow guests to bring pets of any kind to the Mermaid Retreat. There are several reasons for this. The most important is that we are in the wild and there is no place to secure your pets. We have Javali that roam our land at night. They are wild boars and will attack animals. There are also fox and birds of prey – specifically hawks and owls. We also have wild hares that, if your pet gets the scent, will be on a chase up into the hills.
Pets are not allowed on the beaches at any time nor are they allowed in shops or restaurants. In short, your pet would have a really lousy vacation so please, keep them home.
We can support you by recommending a local place to board your cat or dog in a neighboring town. We use this same facility when we vacation and bringing our furry friends is not possible.
