We have hundreds of pet-friendly vacation rentals and condos available in Virginia Beach, VA. Why would you want to leave your furry friend at home, when Virginia Beach has so much to offer? The pet-friendly house rentals in the area fill up quickly, so don’t wait to book! Properties on the ocean as well as off the ocean are available.

Beach houses of all sizes are ready for your arrival - everything from oceanfront villas with a jacuzzi and pool table to smaller, cozier and more affordable options inland. It doesn't matter whether you plan to stay in Virginia Beach or nearby Norfolk or Chesapeake, there are more pet friendly locations in the area.
There are plenty of activities to keep your pets busy during your stay. Take a stroll on the boardwalk where your pet will be excited by all the sights, sounds, smells, and new friends. Pets aren’t allowed on the beach during high season, but outside of that it is a wonderful place for a jog together. The King Neptune statue has become iconic to Virginia Beach, so you have to snap a pic with your pet on your trip. Run around Mt. Trashmore, the first state park that was made entirely of landfill. Virginia Beach boasts three dog parks featuring approximately one acre of fenced area where your pet can run free off leash and socialize with other dogs, too. If you're visiting for the first time, you'll need to bring a city dog license and a dated proof of rabies vaccination, and you'll need to register at the park office.
Take your dog dining at the Beatles-themed Abbey Road Restaurant which has a sidewalk cafe for pets to rest. Book a spa treatment for your dog at the Preppie Pooch, or drop him off at Cosmo’s Corner so the family can have a short pet-free break. Froggie's Cantina by the Bay, a locally owned bar and eatery specializing in steaks, burgers and seafood, has a dog-friendly outdoor patio. For dessert, The Skinny Dip frozen yogurt shop has a special "doggie dip" treat, or drop by Bruster's Real Ice Cream for a free "doggie sundae" topped with crumbled dog bones.
