A select number of our homes welcome dogs and are advertised as “Pet Friendly.” This will be specifically noted on each property’s information page. Any guest found with a pet in a property that is not pet friendly will be required to vacate the premises
without refund. This is strictly enforced.
General Pet Rules:
Guests with dogs are asked to please respect the comfort and safety of other guests, both during and after your stay. For this reason, we ask that you please follow these guidelines during your time with us:
- Please clean up after your dog, both in public areas and in the yard of your rental property.
- Please do not allow your dog to bark excessively or to roam onto neighboring properties. Many of our homes are located in residential neighborhoods, and we must respect the comfort and privacy of those residents. Complaints may lead to eviction without
refund. This will be at the sole discretion of Historic Key West Vacation Rentals
For your own comfort and for the comfort and safety of our homeowners and other guests, there are certain restrictions that must apply to Pet Friendly Properties:
Size, Age, Number of Pets:
- All pets must comply with the following specifications (documentation from an accredited veterinarian must be provided by Guest upon request):
- May not exceed 20 lbs without approval from Historic Key West Vacation Rentals
- Must be at least 1 year(s) of age or older.
- Must be spayed or neutered.
- Must be up-to-date on rabies vaccinations and all other vaccinations. Heartworm preventive is highly recommended.
- No Cats Allowed unless specifically requested and approved by the property owner.
Non-Refundable Pet Fee:
A $150.00 non-refundable “Pet Fee” ($150 for two dogs) will apply to each reservation that includes a dog. (This fee does not cover damage to the property or grounds resulting from a dog, including but not limited to chewing, scratching, digging and unreported
house training accidents.
All local laws and regulations must be followed, and may vary depending on the location of your property.
All pets must be leashed at all times in common areas.
Pet must be taken off the property for all potty breaks.
Guest is responsible for cleaning up any/all pet refuse.
Pets are not allowed on furniture at any time. Any evidence of pets on furniture may incur extra cleaning fees and will be charged to your credit card.
All pets are to be treated with a topical flea and tick repellent three (3) days prior to arrival. Fleas and ticks are very rampant in this area and can cause harmful/fatal illness to humans and pets.
Please groom your dog, particularly if it is a breed prone to shedding. Pet hair can be difficult to remove, and the next renter in your property may not have a pet
Please do your best to clean and dry your dog after a walk; this will help to ensure you will leave the property in good condition without being charged an extra cleaning fee. Please do not allow dogs in swimming pools or hot tubs.
Please trim you dogs nails. As a rule of thumb, a dog’s nails should be trimmed when they just about touch the ground when he or she walks. If your pet’s nails are clicking or getting snagged on the floor, it’s time for a trim. This might mean weekly pedicures.
Pet must not cause damage to premises or furnishings. Please crate your pet if destructive. If damages are caused, the cost of the damage will be charged to your credit card on file.
Guest should prevent pets from producing excessive noise at a level that disturbs neighbors. Pet shall not be left alone if pet is a barker.
Please take your pet with you. Please don’t leave your dog unattended for long periods of time. A crate is ideal for those situations in which you must leave. You are responsible for any damages your pet causes.
Pet is not to be left unattended on balcony, patio, or porch.
Homeowner assumes no responsibility for illness or injury that may incur to pets or humans while on the premises.
You will be asked to remove your pet from the property and board your pet for the remainder of your stay if your pet becomes disruptive to other guests or neighbors and results in complaints.
It is not only you that must adjust to the temperature change! Bring lots of water with you on walks, watch for the signs of your dog overheating and never, ever, ever leave a dog in the car — even on days that don't seem that warm.
The very pavement beneath your dog's paws could be sizzling hot. And hot pavement can have painful consequences. Key West asphalt gets very hot and can burn your pet's paws. If walking your dog on hot pavement is unavoidable, there are things you can do
to be prepared, like using special dog booties or dog paw wax designed to protect your dog's sensitive paw pads from the heat.
If Pet is a bird, which will require special approval, pet must stay in its cage at all times.
The Guest shall be solely responsible for the pet while on the property.
