It’s time to take some time off work and pack those bags for yourself and your furry friends. Leaving your pet with a close friend or a pet hotel is a possible solution when you need to get away for a bit, but wouldn’t it be even better if you can bring your cat or dog along for the holidays? No more separation anxiety or checking in on your friend to see if your check is alright. Well, now you can do so with more and more pet-friendly places to stay provided by Airbnb hosts. Wondering where to stay? Check out these pet-friendly Airbnbs in Oak Island for your accommodation needs when you visit this destination.

1. Cute cottage in a residential neighborhood (from USD 99)

This is the perfect little cottage for a family getaway to the beach. The location makes it easy to access the beach while at the same time allowing visitors to enjoy the quiet. The host allows a maximum of two pets to accompany guests for a 100 USD fee. It is recommended that a separate bed be carried since pets are not allowed on the bed or the furniture. Renters also need to make sure that they clean up after their pets.

The spacious front porch runs the entire length of the house and is a great spot to relax with a chilled glass of iced tea after a day at the beach. And the best part is that Oak Island allows leashed dogs on the beach year-round. The backyard is all sand and gives a beach feel all day long.

With this spectacular location, it would be a crime to leave your four-legged friends behind. A 300 USD fee is applicable for the first pet and 100 USD for the second one. If your pets love to get on the couch and beds make sure to put a towel or blanket before they get on the furniture.
