12 Unique Isle of Palms Pet-Friendly Airbnbs

-

Isle of Palms has remained a popular vacation destination since the late 19th century. Bordered by sandy beaches and an ecosystem of marsh creeks, the South Carolina city is a beautiful place to visit with your pet. From exploring the natural habitats to participating in excursions, you and Fido will encounter endless fun and adventure during your stay.

When traveling with a pet, finding accommodations can sometimes be tough. Many upscale hotels and resorts do not allow pets and those that do may not have the amenities you’re looking for in a vacation rental. Fortunately, there are many excellent Airbnbs in Isle of Palms that welcome pets and their owners.
