For the uninitiated, Outer Banks is a popular place in North Carolina that attracts tons of tourists. Here, people will find a vast beachfront and Cape Hatteras National Seashore. It is also noteworthy that Outer Banks were the first places where early settlers dwelled. Now, they still stand as significant economic and cultural sites with a deep and rich history. Aside from these, the barrier islands of Outer Banks are home to lush greenery and wildlife. It can be heart-wrenching to leave your pets behind when you go for a vacation, so why not just bring them along? More often than not, most hotel chains do not allow pets on their premises. However, you will be pleased to know that there are accommodations that will gladly welcome them. Scroll down for a list of the top pet-friendly Airbnbs in Outer Banks, North Carolina.

This loft allows you and your pet to have the entire space to yourself. The loft comprises one bedroom, a bed, and a bathroom, and it is as spacious as a big motel room. The hosts allow pets to be left alone but guests must be prepared to get them if they start to create a disturbance due to separation anxiety. This is a great spot for couples who just need some time away from everywhere else.
