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 Wrightsville Beach

Wrightsville Beach is a four-mile stretch of scenic coastline crawling with pets (off-season between October 1-March 31). The dog-friendly beach is always a fun way to spend the day, but you’ll sniff out plenty of other ways to hang out with your pet during your stay.

Go for a walk on the 2.45 mile John Nesbitt Loop (or just The Loop), play with them in the grassy fields of Wrightsville Beach Park, or cool off in the shady 1-acre Harbor Way Gardens, which also has a dog water fountain. If you’re visiting between May and October, you can also bring your pet down to the Wrightsville Beach Farmers’ Market to meet other pets and friendly local vendors.
