Dog Friendly Rentals in Santa Cruz County

Our Top Dog Friendly Monthly Rentals in Santa Cruz County


Have you considered taking an extended vacation with your pet in the Santa Cruz area? Or are you thinking of moving to this beautiful spot and living the seaside lifestyle with your four-legged buddy for awhile? Either way, you may be surprised to find that even though Santa Cruz and the surrounding cities of Capitola and Aptos are ideal for pet owners because of their relaxed policies towards dogs and their miles of pristine beaches, many long-term apartment and home rentals are still limited in the pet-friendly accommodations they can provide.

We stand out from our local competition because we’re not only able to provide pet-friendly long-term rentals, but also high-quality properties that are situated near the area’s best pet-friendly attractions and activities, from Santa Maria Beach to downtown Santa Cruz.
