Hi Islanders,

Does anyone know of long term rentals/condos that are known for allowing pets?

A PMV would be the smart thing to do, but wouldn't want to leave our pets behind with friends or something...

There are only a few that allow pets: Watergate, SeaCliff(with permission from the Board), Magen's Point, Shibui, Pineapple Villas. That is all I can think of right now.

I thought Watergate and Sea Cliff allowed pets for owners only. Am I wrong? (Again?)

the poster didn't specify which island. If STX is an option, there are a few condo complexes here that allow pets for tenants (if the landlord also allows them in his unit). These would include: Caribbean View, Saman, Sweet Lime, Gentle Winds, Southgate Plantation, and possibly Coakley Bay. I'm not sure if Coakley has limited pets to owners only. They did allow tenants to have them in the past but these things change sometimes and I am not positive about their current policy.

I know of one house that allows pets in Southgate, which is approx. 1/2 way between Christiansted and Cotton Valley. There are multiple houses on an estate that are rented seperately. There is also a house in La Grande Princess that accepts pets, and one in Cotton Valley that will, with specific permission, allow one small pet.

If any of these might interest you, please just let me know,

Best wishes,

Dan

Watergate does not allow pets.
Seacliff does allow pets, only for owners with Board approval.
Pets are not allowed for renters.

oh, one other point on pet policies with condos. Even the ones that allow owners to have pets usually limit the size and quantity of pets. Most say no more than 2 pets and often have a maximum weight, either per pet or combined pet weight.

What would make renters pet any different than an owners? Just curious.

Ronnie - the theory on that is that an owner will be more responsible with the property since they will be charged directly for any damages or for not complying with the pet policy. The HOA can put a lien on the condo deed if the owner doesn't pay. They don't have as much recourse with a tenant and a landlord would be screwed if the tenant ran up pet charges and left island and the landlord was on the hook with the HOA to pay them.

It's not the pets that are different... it's the people... and a question of liability and responsibility and sense of ownership and who can be held accountable legally.

I see. At my place it's usually the tenants that make the most mess, the pets are the clean ones!

We are looking into allowing pets at the condo where we own. It will be for owners only for the reasons that Alexandra stated.
Renters don't always abide by the condo rules. But in their defense, some bad Realtors tell the renters whatever they want to hear just to rent a place.
We currently have a no pet policy with the exception of one dog and one cat that were there before the policy went into effect. One bad Realtor rented a unit to a couple with children and a dog, telling them to just tell anyone who asked that the dog was "grandfathered in". Lucky for everyone concerned, the older girl didn't like it on the island and went back to the states to live with the grandparents, taking the dog with her.
I don't group Alexandra in with the "bad Realtors".8-)

Thanks for all the info, it looks like our best option, (because we will forever have pets) would be to buy... Guess we'll cross that bridge in the next couple years as plans move forward.

My dad used to own cottages and he allowed pets, because we always had pets, one couple's pets wrecked the cottage beyond belief, it was nasty, so I can understand owners fears of allowing pets, but then on the other side, people like ourselves and others that are responsible pet owners have to suffer because of negligent idiots...
