Pet Policy

If OWNER’S property is designated as a “pet-friendly” property, GUEST is responsible for the cleaning up and/or removal of all pet excrement. Homes allowing pets are limited to one mature house-trained dog, cats are not permitted. There is an individual weight/size/breed limitation, it is different for each home. It is at the owners' discretion. An additional fee of $95 for a single pet, and $65 for multiple pets is required. Tybee Island is very pet-friendly but, unfortunately PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE BEACH. We have two great dog parks!
