Pet owners have it tough when trying to find decent, pet-friendly vacation rentals that can not only provide us with a great vacation, but can also accommodate our pet dog or cat. Granted, there are many people who don’t understand where we are coming from, perhaps even think our vacation wish is a little over the top. For us however, it is very simple; we love our pets and if we want our vacation to be all that we dream it to be, we need to have our pet by our side!
The desire of course is all well and good, but finding pet friendly vacation cabins that will suit your needs, can be more of a struggle than you may have first anticipated!
Fancy a few tips and tricks to finding a great cabin for the two-legged and four-legged loved ones in your life to enjoy? No problem, here they come!
Avoid The Disappointment By Knowing Where To LookThere’s nothing worse that finding a gorgeous vacation cabin online, only to discover that pets are strictly forbidden. Just after you’d fallen in love with the location, pictured yourself relaxing on the veranda and pretty much taken imaginary photos from the stunning balcony, you find out that your fluffy companion is not welcome!
To avoid the disappointment, limit your search to websites that specialize in ‘pet lets’. Once you start searching, you’ll be surprised to find that there are many websites offering an abundance of pet friendly vacation cabins. That being said, not all of the choices on offer are going to match your needs, which leads us on to tip number two!
Don’t Book It Just Because Its Pet Friendly
Remember, just because a vacation cabin is pet friendly, it doesn’t mean it’s the best thing on the planet! Just like any other cabin, it may be in a bad location, be poorly cared for, or simply not match your vacation needs.
Even if you’re excited that the property is listed as pet-friendly, don’t let your joy run away with you; do your homework, check the reviews and don’t book unless you’re sure it matches all of your needs!
Choose A Vacation Cabin That Has Strict Pet Rules
This may sound like a bit of a contradiction, but trust me, there is method in my madness! Vacation cabins that allow a free-for-all for pets and owners are understandably harder to clean, often less maintained, and can harbor that strong pet smell that even animal-lovers can struggle with.
By choosing a cabin that has a good set of ground rules for keeping pets, you can rest assured that the property will be well maintained and aims to be a pleasure for human guests to stay in too, not just the four-legged kind!
Certainly for many pet-lovers, a vacation simply isn’t a vacation without your loved fluffy sidekick by your side. Finding a pet-friendly vacation cabin doesn’t need to be too difficult a feat. Check out the correct websites, don’t book the first property you see, and choose a cabin with ground rules. Now all you need to do is pack your suitcase, pack your pet, and have an amazing trip!
