377 Dog Friendly Apartments for rent in Carolina Beach, NC
Britt's Donuts is a local institution that began in 1939 and still brings people out in droves to the boardwalk every summer (the shop isn't open the rest of the year). The locally-owned favorite serves only glazed, so don't bother asking for any other variety unless you want to be pegged as a newcomer.
Located on Pleasure Island just south of Wilmington, North Carolina, the cozy community of Carolina Beach isn't nearly as scandalous as the name of the island might suggest. The theory is that the name originated as the island was the summer spot for wealthy Wilmingtonians at the turn of the century and early 1900s. Today, it continues to be a popular vacation spot for locals and people from across the country. While the 2010 census put the population at 5,706 (an increase of more than 10% over the 2000 census), the area sees almost a million visitors every year, particularly in the summer. The first community after you cross Snow's Cut Bridge from Wilmington, Carolina Beach has always been the island's commercial hub with shopping centers, restaurants and a marina. See more
Finding an apartment in Carolina Beach 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.
