Experience the Tiptree difference…

Welcome to Tiptree Kennels – A hotel so exclusive we don’t accept people!

Tiptree is the premium accommodation choice in Adelaide for your beloved family member. Here at Tiptree we pride ourselves on providing the best care and attention for our guests, with experienced staff, high quality diet, exercise and playtime, to good old fashioned cuddles.


Located in the Adelaide Hills (only 25 minutes from the CBD), on 7 acres of securely fenced landscaped gardens with sweeping lawns, shady grass exercise yards and a dam for swimming. It really is the ultimate holiday for four legged guests.


Our architecturally designed double brick kennel house ensures excellent ventilation and temperature control, with ceiling fans, blinds, awnings and some with heating. Extensive measures have been taken to ensure the comfort of our guests during their stay.


All the safety extras you would expect of accommodation of this calibre are also here. Such as snake retardants, bushfire sprinklers, on call vet, hydrobath and dryer, veterinary grade infection control, bore and rainwater. Julie the owner also resides on the property.


At Tiptree, we follow best practice hygiene and safety measures to maintain the health and safety of our staff and guests.


Our Facilities and Accommodation

Your beloved family member will enjoy fully insulated accommodation with a variety of accommodation packages available to suit their individual needs. With a choice of accommodation in our Deluxe cabins to packages in our main architecturally designed double brick kennel house.


Our Deluxe accommodation are fully insulated individual luxury cabins with windows, ceiling fans with their own veranda and grassed exercise yard.


Our main kennel house is double brick with private individual inside sleeping quarters which has an adjoining room looking out over a grassed exercise area.  In summer, dual doors are opened to provide fresh air ventilation to flow through the boarding kennel house. This, along with the lower Adelaide Hills temperatures, keeps our guests comfortably cool.


We recommend you bring along your dog’s clean and well-maintained bed/bedding (excluding bean bags which are not permitted) to go on top of our trampoline beds so they have the comfort smells from home, ensuring they snuggle down for a cosy night’s sleep. During winter, why not bring along their PJs?  We are happy to pop them on as we tuck them in with their night time treat.



At Tiptree we are continually reviewing and refining our offering to ensure the best possible stay for our guests. To that end we wish to advise that from 1st May 2022 we have limited bookings and scaled back aspects of our accommodation offering.

This will allow us to continue to provide a boutique, luxury experience to our canine clientele who need and deserve a well-earned holiday from their owners. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Hi Julie

As we won’t be there tomorrow to see you on pick up, we just wanted to say thank you for taking such good care of our fur babies. Seeing them having fun in the dam and tug of war has been so comforting while we are away. We know the girls only play like that when they feel comfortable so we know how well they are being treated.

Thank you for taking care of our girls! We will be sure to use your services again if we ever need.

Chelsea and Liam
