Everyone looks forward to family vacations, especially the kids. When summer rolls around, everyone is more than ready to escape to a destination that offers both fun and relaxation. But for families with pets, there is one major hitch—you have to leave your furry friends behind. Not only is finding a pet sitter or a kennel expensive and stressful, but when it comes right down to it, a “family” vacation doesn’t feel complete without the four-legged family members. This year, keep the family together by renting a pet friendly beach house.
Whether or not you have a pet, a beach house is the perfect venue for a family vacation. First, a vacation home on the beach has the space and privacy to accommodate a family’s needs—enough bedrooms and bathrooms to keep even your teenagers happy. But a beach house also has comfortable community areas for the family to gather, like a spacious eat-in kitchen, a living room with a big screen TV and theater sound system, or a game center with a selection of popular card games and board games. And with a pet friendly vacation home, your dog or cat can keep you company no matter how you choose to spend your day.
Your family will love the outdoors, too. Swimming, sunbathing, sand castle build-offs, picnics, and volleyball are all time-honored beach vacation traditions that are fun for everyone.
If you are a dog lover, but your Fido has never run across the sand, stop what you are doing right now and schedule a vacation at the shore. Dogs love the beach, and your dog hasn’t lived until he has played fetch on the sand and investigated all the unique smells of the beach. If you throw a Frisbee, tennis ball, or even just a piece of driftwood from the porch of your pet friendly beach house, you will have hours of fun and exercise for your family and your canine pal. As you plan your vacation, be sure to check the rules of the local beaches, as some may require leashes be worn.
For your next vacation, why not bring the whole family along—pets included? When you rent a pet friendly beach house, you get the best vacation spot for everyone to enjoy and establish a new tradition that is sure to be a family favorite.
