Pet-friendly rentals so your best friend can come to the beach too!

Choosing a pet-friendly vacation rental is a great way to include everyone in the family. Coastal North Carolina happens to be one of the best pet-friendly beach destinations on the East Coast. Choose from these popular destinations–Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, Ocean Isle Beach, and Topsail Island—they are all happy to welcome you and your furry travel companions.

Pet-friendly rentals in Carolina Beach

Carolina Beach (or Pleasure Island) is a place for both you and your pet to find enjoyment this vacation. Carolina Beach sits on the northern shore with a charming pet-friendly coastal town atmosphere. It’s the ideal destination for enjoying outdoor adventures with your pet—from relaxing on the beach to treks in nature.

Wake up early to catch the beautiful sunrise on the beach with your dog and even enjoy off-leash fun year-round at Freeman Park. Escape the sun on the shady trails winding 8.5 miles through the Carolina Beach State Park. Let your dog stretch their legs running around the dog park at Mike Chappell Park.

Every October (this year on October 7), it hosts the Pets in the Park event at Carolina Beach Lake Park with fun activities like dog yoga, pet portraits, and a puppy kissing booth.
