Hurley can be translated into “Sea-Tide” and beautifully situated overlooking the Knysna Estuary with its moving tides we thought the name fitting.
After many travels with our two four-legged children, Basset Hounds Max and Mia we quickly learned about the difficulties of travelling with pets. Never mind forgetting the occasional food bowl or trying to stuff their bed in the back seat of the car we found that many places that claimed to be pet-friendly were “un-furr-tunately not”.
We tried the pet/house sitting option and didn’t find this viable, besides letting someone else stay in your private home it also usually costly. I am sure a lot of pet-owners can relate to this. Never mind the overwhelming feeling of worry leaving your loved ones at a kennel. (Yes, we mean your pets, it is apparently illegal to do so with 2 legged children.)
We decided enough was enough and living in one of the most beautiful coastal towns in the Garden Route of South Africa, KNYNSA. We decided that we will help other pet owners experience Knysna with the worry of leaving your pawed friends at home.
We introduce Hurley House. We cater for your furry/feathered companions as well as you. Luxury accommodations for humans and pets alike. A house with a gated fence, we also provide your pets with their own beds and “eating facilities” aka bowls. Also Cat Scratch Box. The property also has a safe enclosure we like to call the Pet Play Rooms, so that you can still enjoy some pet free gallivanting without the pet worries.
Conveniently based in the Central of Knysna walking distance from all the shops and amenities of town center. Hurley House is located in a recently renovated and historical part of Knysna. Surrounded by trees Hurley House has its own private driveway leading up a hill that provides the house with exceptional views.
We accommodate small to medium dogs *Please feel free to contact us if you are unsure, we like to accommodate guests as much as possible and we will consider other applications. We also cater for cats, two at most. As well as parrots, (we have one toxic free powder coated cage on the property, if you have two parrots that do not mind sharing, that’s also okay. *Please feel free to contact us.
