Finding a dog-friendly vacation rental: Add FlipKey to the list

About a year and a half ago I wrote a quick post on how to navigate around HomeAway and VRBO to find pet-friendly vacation homes. It turns out that I should also have included FlipKey, their competitor (owned by TripAdvisor). Because I have Burgundy on my mind (and why not? gorgeousness and great food plus wine equals happy, in my book), I searched for properties there, and while I’m tempted by the 30-room pet-friendly château (call for price) just south of Beaune (call for location), my husband is more likely to go for something in an apartment, say, in Bordeaux instead.

When you arrive at the home page, type in your destination. On the page of results, there will be a sidebar on the left — check the box next to “Pet friendly.”

    Two more that you should DEFINITELY add to the list when traveling in Europe are Homelidays (the European version of Homeaway and very popular in France and Italy) and Airbnb for eastern Europe. Both are excellent and well worth looking into. We’ve found great pet-friendly rentals through both.

    I was just followed on Twitter by Vacation Home Rentals, so of course I looked to see whether you can identify pet-friendly properties on their site — and the answer, is yes. Type in the location you’re interested in on the home page. Once you have that list in front of you, click on “More Filters” in the left side-bar, and click on “Pets Allowed.”
