How big is the attached outdoor enclosed private courtyard? (Premier Suite Only)
3m x 2.5m.

Will it be noisy for my pet being near the airport?
No. We have state of the art sound proofing and insulation.

Can I visit my pet during their stay?
Rest assured they will be having a great time. It won’t be possible to pop in and say hello during their stay as it would be too disruptive to your pet to say hello and leave again. If you are missing your pet you can arrange a Skype call. If you want to know how they are going you are welcome to phone our staff and they will be more than happy to chat with you and send through some photos of your pet’s holiday at Beau’s.

Do you offer grooming for dogs who are not boarding?
Yes. Our Grooming Stylists can groom and pamper your dog - call us on 8115 6080.

We offer flexible check in and check out appointment times, which are between 8 - 11am and 3 - 6pm Monday to Sunday. Appointments are subject to availability and confimed at the time of booking.

I have two dogs can they share accommodation and will that be at a reduced price?
Yes. Dogs that live together can stay together and the most suitable suite/s for your dogs will depend on their size. You can jump onto our website and press the ‘Get Quote/Book Now’ button to get an estimate of your pets' stay. You can update the suite options to get different quotes.

I have two cats can they share accommodation and will that be at a reduced price?
Yes. Cats that live together and are from the same social group can stay together in a Penthouse Condo. Cats who live together often tolerate each other but are not in the same social group. You will know if your cat is in the same social group as they will sleep together and groom each other, if your cats don’t do this then you will need to book them into separate condos so they can enjoy their own space but are able to be socialised together in the amazing cat atrium. You can jump onto our website and press the ‘Get Quote/Book Now’ button to get an estimate of your cat's stay.

When the cat condo door is closed, is there sufficient airflow?
Yes absolutely. Each condo has fresh air constantly flowing though the internal vents and out through the gap around the tempered glass fronts.

Are the cats allowed to play outside their condos?
For sure!  Our cat atrium is amazing with a huge 75” t.v., water wall and pond for those cats that love playing with water. Toys galore, cat climbing wall with hidey holes, scratching pads and plenty more to keep them happy. They can either chill out in the atrium by themselves or with other family cats that are compatible. And of course they’ll get lots of smooches and cuddles during the day!
Where are you located?
