Savannah's historic district is famous for its stunning cobblestone streets, well-maintained gardens, and tree-filled parks with delicate Spanish moss. The city hosts diverse events, including festivals, concerts, live theater, and art exhibits, alongside charming outdoor cafes, gourmet restaurants, and fascinating historic sites.
For pet lovers, exploring Georgia's ultimate vacation spot is even more enjoyable when sharing the experience with beloved four-legged companions. To ensure a hassle-free stay, we offer a selection of pet-friendly vacation rentals, recommended places to visit, and useful tips for embracing all that Savannah has to offer with your pet.
Traveling with pets can be a rewarding experience, but it requires careful planning to ensure everyone's comfort and enjoyment. Opting for one of our pet-friendly vacation rentals in Savannah comes with several advantages, some of which are:
Inclusive Family Experience
Pets are an integral part of the family. Bringing your pets along ensures that no one is left behind, creating lasting memories together.
Pet Comfort and Familiarity
Pets feel more comfortable in familiar surroundings. Staying in our pet-friendly vacation rental properties will allow your furry friends to experience a home-like environment while away from home.
Space and Freedom
Our rentals provide more space than traditional hotel rooms, allowing your pets to move around freely and feel less confined.
Convenient Locations nearby
We are strategically located in Troup Square, near parks, trails, and pet-friendly establishments, making it easy to explore Savannah with your pets (some are even within walking distance).
Taking your pet with you will allow you to rest easy, say goodbye to separation anxiety, and make your trip more enjoyable without worrying about your pet's well-being.
Save on Pet Sitting and Boarding Costs
Leaving your pet at home or in a boarding facility can be expensive, especially if you're planning an extended trip. By bringing your pet along, you eliminate the need to pay for pet sitting or boarding services, which can add up quickly and take away from your vacation budget.
To ensure a successful and enjoyable pet-friendly vacation in Savannah, follow these essential tips:
Visit the Vet
Schedule a visit to the veterinarian before your trip to ensure your pets are in good health, up-to-date on vaccinations, and equipped with identification tags.
Research pet-friendly attractions, parks, and restaurants in Savannah to plan pet-inclusive outings during your stay. (Take a look at our recommendations below).
Bring your pets' essentials, including their food, water and food bowls, bedding, toys, waste bags, and any medications they may need. Familiar items from home can help them feel more at ease in the new environment. However, if for some reason you forget your pet’s food bowl, there is no need to worry as we have them at your disposal in our properties.
Be Mindful of Your Pet
Respect the rules of our rental property and make sure to clean up after your pet to be a responsible pet parent. Be mindful of your pets' behavior to ensure a harmonious stay for all guests and neighbors.
Plan for Weather
Consider the weather conditions during your stay and ensure your pets are comfortable and safe, especially during the hot summer months.
When exploring Savannah with your pets, keep them on a leash and under control at all times to ensure their safety and the safety of others.
