Pet Friendly Homes

Your pets are welcome at Bald Head Island!

Bring your pet with you for a vacation with Bald Head Island Limited.

Some of our vacation homes allow pets. Please select "pet friendly" in your online search or tell our Rental Relations Coordinator about your pet so we can select a home for you that will suit your needs.

With fourteen miles of beaches, hiking trails and the added benefit of a carless island, your pet will have plenty of room to get their exercise. There is also an added bonus of a dog park available to your four-legged family member.

Travel tips for pets

Bring your dog food from home. It is easier on your dog if you don't suddenly switch to a new brand. Remember that the hot weather can also affect your dog a little bit. Don't forget to bring his bowl, leash and favorite toy!

Remember to bring the vaccination record. Bring your records with you. If you should have and emergency it will help you greatly if you need to contact the local vet.

Don't leave your dog unattended. It may be tempting to leave your dog in the golf cart or home unattended. However, until you know he/she is comfortable being left it is best to keep their anxiety level at a minimum by not leaving them. Instead - bring a kennel or crate if you leave your dog behind for a few hours in the rental home. Dogs can hurt themselves trying to jump out of a golf cart they are leashed to. Use care when securing your pet. That way you will be able to enjoy yourself knowing that your dog is safe.

Use your dog leash! There are many nice hiking trails that you may want to take your dog off the leash to enjoy. However there is abundant wildlife on the island so keeping your pet leashed will help insure he/she will not lose track of you. Remember that if he/she gets lost he/she won't be able to find his way home. So keep a close eye on your dog.

Please pick up after your dog and don't let the next guest find your doggy's surprises on the beach, along the roadside on in the yard of your rental home.

Separation Anxiety. You know your dog best: If you think he might have anxieties without you in a strange place, don't leave him alone to bark, destroy somebody else's property, chew or urinate. Bring a kennel with you just in case. If you have to leave him alone for a bit at least you will have a safe place to put him.

Our pet fee of $200 covers extra cleaning necessary after a dog has departed. This fee is automatically added to our pet-friendly homes.
