When it comes to booking accommodation for holidays, there are a few things that really help to get it over the line in our book.

We've rounded up some absolute gems of accommodation picks on the Central Coast, all of which have a fireplace or fire pit, and many of which are pet friendly to boot ('cause we know you love your fur babies as well as your human ones!). Here are our picks for the best pet-friendly accommodation on the Central Coast.
