Newport Dunes is proud to be Orange County’s most affordable and dog-friendly resort. For our guests who choose to visit with their pets, kindly observe the following guidelines:
- We welcome well-mannered, house-trained, disease-free dogs. Two pets allowed per accommodation. All pets must be licensed and vaccinations current. An affordable fee of $2 per day, $10 per week, or $30 a month will be charged per pet for all Resort Guests.
- Pets must be leashed and under their owner’s control at all times in outdoor public areas on the property.
- Pets are not permitted in pool areas, in cottages, on the beach, or indoor public areas at any time.
- Pet owners are responsible for promptly picking up after their pets and bringing the appropriate materials to do so.
- Should any pet display dangerous, aggressive, or unacceptable behavior (including but not limited to biting or excessive barking), Newport Dunes reserves the right for their immediate removal.
- While we understand that not all dog breeds are aggressive and should be treated case-by-case, we are required by the city ordinance to restrict certain breeds. Breed restrictions came about in an effort to protect people from what some consider “dangerous” breeds with uncontrollable aggression– especially pit bulls, bull terriers, rottweilers, and mastiffs. In other words, if dangerous pets aren’t allowed in, there’s a lesser chance attacks or bites will happen. Newport Dunes Security has sole discretion when any determination is made. We apologize for the inconvenience and unfairness.
- To ensure pets continue to be welcomed in our seaside city, please always pick up after them, keep them leashed, and be kind and considerate. We have waste bags for your convenience located along the promenade. We also offer an off-leash dog run located by Restroom #21.
- While Emotional Support Animals or Comfort Animals are often used as part of a medical treatment plan as therapy animals, they are not considered service animals under the ADA and remain subject to the pet agreement and non-refundable fee.
Visitor Parking: Each resort accommodation comes with one complimentary vehicle pass. Guests may purchase additional full-day parking passes at the Registration Office. Time-stamped parking passes are given out at the gatehouse. Vehicle passes are not transferable between different cars or guests unless you bring your original pass into the office to get a new one. If you lose your pass, you will need to purchase a new pass.
