Save yourself the heartache and expense of leaving your pets behind, and reserve one of our pet friendly rentals. Did you know over 39% of people say they have skipped vacation to stay home with their fur babies? While that’s one way to simplify plans and cut costs, Sand `N Sea offers you rental options that allow you to invite your pets along for the adventure. As a special welcome for our VIP (Very Important Pup) guests, we greet them with a special gift at check-in.
Galveston Island is home to several fenced dog parks that will allow your puppy to roam freely. You can find these pet friendly play areas at Lindale, Menard and Kempner Parks. The Island also has many air conditioned, indoor areas that welcome pets. Additionally, BayWatch Dolphin Tours invites pets to come along for the ride.
Galveston is the perfect place to take Fido on vacation. All of the Island’s beaches are open to leashed dogs. Business owners and other visitors love seeing your four-legged friends, too. Many businesses along the most popular areas gladly welcome your pets — some even serve them meals and treats!
The Strand is an excellent place to bring your leashed dogs. This 70-block historic district is an ideal area to take in scenery, shopping, and refreshments with your favorite people and pets. As an added bonus, the Strand features covered sidewalks throughout. These shaded walkways keep your pets cool while giving them a break from the abundant Texas sunshine.
Dogs are welcome to frolic on all beaches in Galveston. East Beach, located on the Island’s far eastern tip, is a lively place to bring your pooch along for some beach fun. In 2016, Town & Country voted East Beach “One of the Best Dog Friendly Beaches.” It has everything you will need to keep your pets hydrated and safe from the sun’s rays: showers, restrooms, food, drinks, and chair and umbrella rentals. Another great option is Stewart Beach, which Family Vacation Critic voted one of the “10 Best Beaches for Families” in 2013. It gives you access to concessions, fresh water, shade, and fun play areas for family as well.
Before visiting the beaches, take note of the local leash laws. To ensure you and your pets have safe fun, local ordinances require your pets to stay on a leash (6 feet or less in length) while roaming the beaches. These rules keep your pup safe from dangerous surf and allow other visitors to enjoy the beaches too.
Pet Friendly Properties
Our rental policy allows up to two small dogs (each under 20 lbs.) or one medium sized dog (40-60 lbs.) per property. A $150 non-refundable pet fee is included on each pet friendly property reservation. That beats paying boarding fees to the kennel while your pal misses out on the family fun. Should your pet damage or soil the property, repair and/or cleaning charges will be billed to your final invoice.
Your pups are with you every day and are a part of some of your family’s most precious moments. Vacation should be no different! Book your next getaway with Sand `N Sea and bring the whole family along.
