Pet-friendly long term rentals

My husband and I are looking to relocate to St. Croix next year. We have been in contact with a few realtors already and are having a hard time finding pet-friendly condos for rent. Does anyone know of any pet friendly condos near Christiansted or on the East end? We have a dog(Alaskan malamute) and a cat who will be making the relocation with us.

Just in general there are very, very few condo complexes which accept pets - and the size of your dog will be additionally prohibitive. You'd be better off looking for a free standing private home to rent.

If you're not committed to east end, the condos at Carambola golf allow pets: Saman and Sweetlime.

You'll be hard pressed to find any condo association on STX that allows renters to have pets. Owners yes. But renters no. If you deal with a rental agent who tells you otherwise ask to see a copy of the current HOA rules before signing a lease. HOA rules will supersede anything written in a lease.

An Alaskan Malamute will be miserable in the St Croix climate.

It's doable but they need very special care.

She survives in the Arizona heat and has been for 8 years. Will it be that bad for her? She is basically an inside dog anyway.

She'll be fine if she's been surviving Arizona heat and humidity.
Good luck within finding a rental.

There's actually a Malamute we've seen at the beach a few times on STX, and he seems no worse for wear. I think if the dog can handle Glendale AZ summer temps, it'll do fine here with the same precautions. The undercoat acts as insulation to cool, as well as to keep heat in. But it may blow that coat more frequently here, at least until it's acclimated.

Again...an Alaskan Malamute will be miserable. Arizona heat much drier, not to mention the cost of a/c much more affordable. I guess if you can afford to leave your a/c running, the dog may be comfortable. Keep in mind the cost of power in stx much more expensive.

My Alaskan Huskie/Shepherd cross was born here and lived with us on STT for 12 years - lived outside, slept on the porch and was rarely indoors - unless it was thundering or very stormy. He seemed to be well adapted, not panting with the heat, and we always had his coat cut shorter in the late summer but he had no problems with daytime temps and cool mountain nights. Hung out in the shade in the day just like most of us. We have never had an inside dog here.
I have not had A/C in 36 yrs in this house - I am sure some homes need it for their location.

I think you will have more problems finding a condo complex that allows bigger dogs, than the dog will have being in the VI.
