Pet Friendly Condos

pet friendly condos and townhomesPet Friendly Condos and Townhomes Pet owners who have purchased or rented a condo property know how difficult it is to find something suitable that allows pets, especially large dogs. There are a number of condos in Pinellas County that permit pets, with varying restrictions as to size, type (dog vs cat, etc), and number. Some condominiums allow pets only in certain buildings, like Silver Sands, where pets are permitted in one of three beachfront buildings. Typically, the newer construction properties allow larger animals , and the older units allow 15-20 lbs. Our area has many pet friendly parks including Sand Key Park, Honeymoon Island, and Ft Desoto. Honeymoon Island even has a “dog beach”, where Fido can enjoy the Gulf of Mexico. Some cities have even passed “Doggy Dining” laws permitting dogs at certain restaurants. Florida Pet Friendly has information on pet friendly parks, hotels etc.

Below is a partial list of condo communities that permit pets. For more information on any of these properties or to receive a personalized property list call PropCo Real Estate Toll Free 888-499-5454 or email us.
