While browsing through our available pet-friendly rentals, look for specific details that both cater to your pet and also save space while packing the family car. A number of rental properties offer pet-friendly amenities to accommodate such a vacation. Look for items such as dog pens in the shade, kennels for you to use while you’re away from the house, leads, outside showers, provided food and water bowls, as well as fenced-in yards. You'll save space when packing, and have peace of mind that you are choosing the right property that both you and your dog can relax at.

The Outer Banks offers many multi-use paths, perfect for morning walks or evening strolls. Explore residential neighborhoods tucked away in maritime forests and alongside the beaches or go from shop to shop in areas like Duck and Roanoke Island. Find a public sound access where your pup can swim and fetch in shallow waters without ocean waves and strong currents. There are also dog parks located throughout the islands so make sure to locate one closest to you while on vacation. 

With so much to see and explore on the Outer Banks, a vacation with your pet is so much more than sand. Regardless of the area in which you are staying, bringing your pet along with you while vacationing with Sun Realty is rewarding and memorable.
