What to Bring

Beach Equipment

We have a partnership with VayKGear and most (but not all) of our rentals come with a credit for beach gear like chairs, umbrellas, coolers, etc. 

Look for the VayKGear logo to the right on individual property descriptions to see if your rental provides a gear credit. Participating homes offer gear for stays between 4-14 days.

If your rental does not participate, please plan to bring, purchase, or rent these items upon arrival. Often, guests will leave a few chairs at departure, so occasionally a few are available, but not guaranteed. Our THINGS TO DO page offers great vendors for these items if rental is preferred.

Linens & Towels

Bed linens and bath towels are provided for all vacation rentals. Beach towels should be purchased or brought. Some local companies may rent beach towels, but the bathroom towels provide in your rental should not be used on the beach. Kitchen towels and pot holders are in most rentals, but are not guaranteed. 

Groceries, Kitchen, and Bath Supplies

Please plan to bring or purchase any depletable groceries and vacation supplies. A good rule of thumb is if it is available at the grocery store, please plan to bring or purchase it. Examples... soap & shampoo, dish & laundry detergents, trash bags, toilet tissue, paper towels, toothpaste, kitchen cleaning solutions, etc.

Specialty Kitchen Cooking & Entertaining Items

All kitchens include standard cookware, flatware, and stemware. For specialty cooking, like crock pots, pressure cookers, very large pots, etc please plan to bring or purchase. Although many rentals may include them, we do not guarantee specialty cooking & entertaining items

Wireless Internet Card or Hot Spot

Internet service can be intermittent on our barrier islands, so please bring a wireless internet card or hot spot if internet access is an absolute must.

Hair Dryer and Iron

Many properties may include items such as irons and hair dryers, but we cannot guarantee this. If these are important to you, please plan to bring or purchase them.
