Pet Friendly Vacation Homes

Pet Friendly Vacation Homes

Some properties are pet-friendly, while others are not.  PSVH accepts no responsibility for any allergic reaction or other conditions arising from occupancy of the property. While some properties are currently designated “Non-Pet Friendly,” there may have been pets onsite at some point in the past.

Pet-Friendly Properties – Select properties allow up to two (2) well-trained dogs (both under 45 lbs. each). Advance notice is required, and a $200 pet fee will be applied to your stay. Cats and other pets are not allowed in any of our rental properties. Licensee assumes full responsibility for the dog(s), dog safety, the safety of others, vendors, invitees and dog itself. All evidence of pet occupation must be removed from the property and grounds at the end of the rental period. Pets are not permitted on any item of furniture, including beds, and evidence of pet hair on furniture and bedding may incur additional cleaning charges.

 Non-Pet Friendly Properties – There are to be no pets permitted on the property, except qualifying service animals or if a reasonable accommodation has been approved for an assistance animal.  

Reasonable Accommodations for Assistance Animals – An assistance animal is not a pet. It is an animal that works, provides assistance, or performs tasks for the benefit of a person with a disability, or provides emotional support that alleviates one or more identified symptoms or effects of a person's disability. In California, licenses have the right to bring their service dogs and emotional support animals to live with them in many circumstances. Housing providers that do not usually allow occupants to keep pets on the premises may be required to allow an individual with a physical or mental disability to have an animal that provides disability-related assistance.

Housing providers may deny a request to keep a service dog,  psychiatric service dog, or support animal in California as a reasonable accommodation if the specific  animal:

  • poses a direct threat to the health or safety of others, or
  • would cause substantial physical damage to the property of others.

However, if the threat or damage can be reduced or eliminated by another reasonable accommodation, the housing provider must allow the animal.  A housing provider cannot reject a service dog or assistance animal because of breed, size, or weight. When the disability or need for reasonable accommodation is not obvious, a housing provider may ask the person with a disability for documentation that he or she has a disability and a disability-related need for the service dog or support animal. The licensee must then provide the housing provider with reasonable medical documentation from a health care provider that confirms the existence of the disability and the need for reasonable accommodation.

 Violations and Fees – If a pet is brought into a home without permission, a charge of $1500 will be charged to the credit card on file or applied to the security deposit.  Licensees who bring a pet or pets without approval will be subject to immediate eviction from the property.
