You look forward to your Outer Banks vacation all year long and seemingly nothing can put a damper on the excitement you feel when it is time to hit the road. Nothing except, perhaps, the thought of leaving the family pet behind and worrying if they will be ok while you are away having fun. Put those worries aside and consider bringing them with you on vacation this year! Outer Beaches Realty offers many outstanding Outer Banks rental homes that are pet-friendly.
Imagine the excitement of your four-legged family member as their head hangs out the car window, sniffing the fresh ocean air. When you pull up to your Outer Banks pet friendly rental, they'll be as anxious to enjoy the sand and surf as much as you are. Before you take your furry friend out to the beach, please keep in mind some helpful tips and safety measures, as well as the local leash laws and pet policies.
Dogs are allowed on the beach year-round if they are restrained with a leash 6' feet or less at all times.
Many of our cottages allow pets. If you wish to bring your pet, be sure to select a cottage with the pet amenity. A $125 Pet Fee is charged for each pet. This fee is used for additional cleaning required and pest extermination. If you are renting a pet cottage, your lease will automatically reflect a charge for one pet. If you are not bringing a pet, you may deduct this amount. If you have been given permission to bring more than one pet, your lease will show a charge of $125 per pet. There is a "leash law" on the beach, so be sure to keep your pet on a leash no longer than 6'. Also, be sure to clean up any mess your pet may leave around your cottage.
If you own a pet, you must select a pet cottage, make arrangements with a kennel, or leave your pet at home. ANY PET FOUND IN OR AROUND A NON-PET COTTAGE IS GROUNDS FOR EXPEDITED EVICTION, FORFEITURE OF ALL MONIES PAID AND/OR A NON-DECLARED PET FEE OF $150 AT THE SOLE DISCRETION OF OBR. Under no circumstances are pets allowed in pools or hot tubs. Breach of this rule is considered a serious violation of your lease and may result in expedited eviction. The Accidental Damage Program included in your rent does not cover damage by pets. Tenants will be liable for any damages caused by pets. Please don't jeopardize your vacation; be honest and upfront with us when you make your reservation.
