Hello everyone, I hope this information is helpful to you, for Holiday and respite accommodation…
Accessible Accommodation is an information portal showcasing places to stay that offer varying degrees of accessibility. Holiday houses and apartments, hotels and motels, houseboats and glamping, resorts and caravan parks and more. Most are in Australia, however there are also options for Bali and New Zealand. There are also travel services section such as assisted travel groups and travel agents etc.
Your mobility challenges are uniquely you. Perhaps you use a walking frame, and can manage a few steps, or you require a carer to assist in movements and a hoist is on your list of ‘must-haves’. Accessible Accommodation helps you find a place to stay that is just right for YOU.
You can choose from a variety of accessible holiday accommodation from basic to complex disabled needs. You’ll be informed of what exactly is provided in terms of accessibility with over 50 answers to your most pressing questions and helpful photos. Also included are unedited videos of each property for you to see for yourself how accessible it is.
There are three categories of accommodation, as everyone’s mobility needs differ.
1/ Assisted Walking
Walking Frame or Cane Users. Some accessible amenities would come in handy.
2/ Independent Wheelchair User

3/ Assisted Wheelchair User
