149 Dog Friendly Apartments for rent in Hobe Sound, FL
A lot of celebrities live on the coast in Hobe Sound. You should see some of the houses out there. Talk about luxury. Here's a fun historical fact: a ship called the Reformation sunk here on it's way north from Jamaica, carrying with it many, many cases of rum, which is still a favorite beverage additive in this neck of the woods.
First of all, you pronounce Hobe with a long "o," as in Hooooobe Sound. And the "e" is silent. It's not Hobey Sound. Got it? Good! Second, the actual city limits of Hobe Sound are not on the Atlantic Ocean, and most of the coastline here is private access only, except for the small parking lot at the end of Bridge Road where stairs lead you down to the sand. So, when you live in Hobe Sound you'll most likely hit the beach south in Jupiter or north in Port Salerno, each of which is about 15 minutes away on US Highway 1. You'll get to know both of those areas pretty well after you move in your rental home here. Hobe Sound, with a population of about 11,500, is located on the south end of what's known as Florida's Treasure Coast, so-named for all of the ships that sank there, leaving all kinds of goodies underwater that people still, to this day, seek out. Like much of South Florida, Hobe Sound doesn't have neighborhoods with distinct names, but each side of town definitely has its own personality. See more
Finding an apartment in Hobe Sound that accepts your pet may not be easy, but it’s very possible. Keep in mind, most of the time you’ll have to pay a premium for bringing your dog along in your new apartment. Some apartments require you to pay monthly pet rent, others will ask for a non-refundable pet fee or a refundable pet deposit.
While landlords and property management companies have varying pet policies, most of them limit the number of dogs you can bring to your apartment and include breed and weight restrictions.
If your pet falls under some of the restrictions outlined in the pet policy, it’s still worth asking the landlord if they can make an exception for your dog. Preparing a pet resume ahead of time could help you build the case for your furry friend. Make sure to include information on behavioral training your dog went through over the years and proof of vaccinations. If you can, include references from your former landlord and/or neighbors.
