The birds are chirping, flowers are blooming, and your dog is itching for an adventure. You guessed it—spring is just on the horizon. But why wait for your next excursion? We’ll pick our favorite dog friendly Airbnb vacation rental in a city we’d love to visit—so you can pack your suitcase, grab the leash, and get out of town.
Where You’ll Stay
An intimate Seattle Airbnb that offers a dog-loving getaway in a small package for the minimalist with an affinity for coffee. The cozy studio accommodates you and your dog with room for one more person (if you so desire), complete with private entrance, parking spot, the essentials, and lots of charm. Your host, Mona, and her husband live upstairs, and will point you and your four-legged travel companion in the right direction for delicious eats, the OG Starbucks, and dog parks galore. Enjoy the private entrance and be welcomed by a large bed, a desk flanked with books, and a leather chair for a read while the pup snoozes.
Why We Love It
Inside, you’re set. Hungry? Cook a stellar meal for you and the pooch (while Ghandi and JFK watch from above). Want to kick back? There’s a porch to relax on, and an upper deck with amazing views, perfect for morning tea or sunset cocktails. While remaining clean and minimalist, the place is spruced with just enough little touches to make it feel like home—blooming orchids, an Apple TV, wifi, and Mona might even have some extra wine on hand for those deck lounges.
Outside isn’t too shabby, either. Feeling adventurous? Take the leash and walk to Lake Union, see the houseboats, or find a restaurant patio. You and Fido can easily access Downtown, Capitol Hill and the University District via a brisk walk or short drive. And yes, Fido can come in to the original Starbucks for a puppuccino.
What You Need to Know
Stay for around $92 per night, plus a cleaning fee of $30. Make sure you mark the four-legged one as an extra guest when booking.
Editor’s Note: As always, we recommend that you check with the dog friendly Airbnb homeowner for specific restrictions on breed, size, or number of dogs allowed in the residence.
