Hi...I am in the medical field and am going to relocate to the Southport/Oak Island/Wilmington area. I have a sibling who lives in Carolina Beach. Since I'm going to be working in the Southport area, I'd rather live there or reasonably close by. So here's my problem. I used to show dogs and even though I haven't done that in several years now I still have 3 ancient Basset Hounds and 2 Golden Retrievers. They are all very well behaved and quiet. The Bassets are old and sleep 22 out of 24 hours. The Goldens are just happy campers. My mother is retired and lives with me so they are not left home alone all day. I have to make this move because of my job, and want to know if there is any hope of finding a rental that will accept my four-legged family as well. Obviously we need a fenced yard or one that I would be allowed to fence. Everyone is completely housebroken and there isn't an adolescent "chewer" in the bunch. The Goldens are both 4 and the youngest Basset is 8. These dogs are part of my family. Can anyone help me? Pet fees/deposits are no problem. Thank you!

Default good luck

We moved to carolina beach last year and had a VERY difficult time finding a place that would allow us keep one dog and one cat. We were turned away many, many times. We had also checked out the oak island and southport areas, but ultimately decided we liked carolina beach, best. I found that the rent in southport was rather expensive and some of the area were very seedy, so we never really looked into whether or not they were pet friendly. We did seem to have more luck finding pet friendly rentals on oak island, but one of the things you'll have to consider in these areas is that many of the homes are "piling" houses, which means lots of steps. Not a good thing when you have senior dogs Sorry I can't be of more help. I wish you the best of luck.

Actually you might want to try Boiling Spring Lakes, rural, outside of SPT, and about a 15 m commute to OI and about 30 m to ILM.

You have responded to a 4-year old message. There are many rental properties which allow dogs, as long as they are not one of the restricted breeds. Check the usual sources: Craigslist for Eastern North Carolina and Realtor.com . There did not happen to be any current listings for Boiling Spring Lakes. That is a cheap and safe but somewhat run-down area.

You would get better help if you specified some details. Budget? How many and what kind of pets? Do you need to live in an area where you can find a job? Etc?
