Nestled scenically between the Gulf of Mexico and Choctawhatchee Bay, Destin is among the best Floridian towns to enjoy tropical goodness. While the town started out as a fishing village, which still grabs the maximum spotlight around here is the month-long Annual Fishing Rodeo festival, held in October that attracts quite a bit of footfall. This aside though, Destin’s many fantastic beaches, water sports opportunities, and a brilliant seafood scene have broadened the scope of entertainment for those of you looking for more. So, get your planning in order right away and no need to leave behind your pet buddies too! Here are some of the best pet-friendly vacation rentals in Destin, Florida, that won’t only be comfortable for you, but even your little buddies. Check them out!
A stone’s throw away from the beach, this two-bedroom beach house is an ideal accommodation for upto eight occupants. While the house is utterly comfortable and spacious for all occupants to enjoy a great time indoors, the private balcony, a shared swimming pool, and on-site tennis courts, amp up the fun factor while you’re checked in. While this rental is pet-friendly, do remember that cats are not allowed. Aside from guaranteeing that your pet will not damage anything on-site, you must also ensure that your pet does not create a nuisance for the neighbors. Do get in touch with the host(s) if you want further information, they’ll be happy to oblige.

While you’ll enjoy complete access and privacy to the entire property, there are tons of attractions within a 4-km (2.5-mile) radius from the property if you want to venture out. As for the rental’s pet-friendliness, the house has been largely left uncarpeted to ensure minimal damage and there’s an amazing sandy backyard that is a real hit with pet parents. While pets are allowed to prance around in the backyard, they must never be left unattended (host’s house rule). If you do plan to bring along your pet, the host expects that you pick up after your pet diligently, leave them crated if you’re planning to step outdoors while leaving them behind, and take full responsibility of their well-being. Do let the host know beforehand and he’ll let you know other details too.

The quaint fishing village
Destin’s fishing prowess comes from its gifted geography, located about 15 km (9.3 mi) away from a 30-m (100-ft) drop in the continental shelf. Although, the prowess does not stop there. While here, don’t forget to try seafood specialities – their fresh flavours, unique spices, and toothsome bite will simply clean-bowl you! So, head there ASAP!
