The Dog house has some of the best food on the beach. This little stand has great burgers, sandwiches and yummy fries. Try the daily specials they are fantastic. There is only out door seating. The staff is friendly and you will love it.

I have taken my boy to this beach 3 times and all 3 times, the beach was littered with dead fish and a beach not clean. The parking lot walk to the beach is always flooded so more dead fish. The beach itself is just...More

We never actually made it to the dog beach. It was high tide and we would have had to walk through a quarter mile of standing water to get to the beach. Someone coming out said that there was little sand for the dogs to...More

Stopped to look at this beach on a afternoon drive. Free parking & a short walk to the beach which didn't have much sand more a silty mud. Unfortunately between the car park & the beach was a large pool which you had to paddle...More

La Quinta, see below
We have 2 dogs and are desperately trying to find pet-friendly vacation villas in the area. We are staying in Orlando now but we will be going back to Canada in a couple of weeks and we would like to reserve for next year asap. Can you please recommend any agents or web sites which we could contact. Thank you.
