Searching for a vacation rental where four-legged friends are as welcome as you are? These coastal getaways are spoiled with options.
For many people, there’s no better traveling companion than man’s (or woman’s) best friend. But, unfortunately, when the BFF in question comes with four paws, fur, and a tendency to drool, not all vacation rental hosts are accommodating.
Fortunately for pet lovers, however, there are beach destinations that seem to attract a surplus of equally dog-loving homeowners—many of whom are willing to open their homes to their pets and yours. Vacation rental marketplace Vacasa recently pored through their offerings to determine which destinations in the U.S. have the highest percentage of pet-friendly short-term listings. Of those places, they narrowed the list down further to include only cities where pet-friendly rentals seem to garner more bookings and more positive reviews than non-pet-centric ones. Unsurprisingly, most pup-friendly destinations seem to cater to water dogs. Here are the top five beachside towns that made the list.
