Pet-friendly Vacation Rentals in Florida South Central Gulf Coast
FlipKey has hundreds of pet-friendly Florida South Gulf Coast vacation rentals ready and waiting for your next trip. Our homeowners know the pain of having to leave your pet at a friend or relative’s home, or maybe even (gasp) a kennel - so they’ve opened up their homes and their hearts to your entire family. Florida is hot, so many rentals come with a pool and outdoor patio to enjoy the sunshine and cool off. Find a rental home with a fenced backyard for your dog to play in and to make those necessary trips outside so much easier.
A vacation rental makes sense for your pets not only because of the space, but also the privacy and special amenities offered that won’t be available at a hotel. Most of the time, the nightly price is less too! Pets can run around and relax like they do at home, instead of being cramped in a single room. Cat-friendly homes give you room to get the litter box a little further away than in a hotel room. Make sure you know the specific pet rules and guidelines before making a final decision on a rental house for your trip. Your vacation rental owner may have recommendations for nearby dog parks and pet-friendly beaches too. It is always best to bring along your pet's favorite toys and foods, so although physical location has changed, creature comforts have not.
There are endless things to do in Florida South Gulf Coast while on your trip. Hot spots like Sarasota and Fort Myers attract millions of tourists every year. Take your pet out swimming or visit any one of the pet-friendly restaurants in the area for a bite to eat and some much-needed shade. In Dunedin, there’s the Mutt March in the spring sponsored by Suncoast Animal League and Dogtoberfest in the fall complete with games and a fashion show. Make your way to the Everglades and explore them by fan boat where dogs are welcome. In Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge, you and your pet (on a 10-foot leash) can explore the park’s 53,000 acres of river delta, the meeting of the Suwannee River and the Gulf of Mexico. Lastly, but most importantly, beaches all along the coast are a blast for you and your pet.
