What To Bring

Please be sure to look at your cottage's list of amenities, as each varies. 

While homes will be cleaned before your arrival as well as after your departure, make sure to bring some cleaning supplies for spills, dishes as well as laundry. You will be able to pick up a weekly supply of paper products at the nearby grocery store.

You need to supply the following:

  • Food, Condiments and Spices
  • Cleaning Supplies (such as laundry & dish detergents)
  • Paper Products (toilet paper, paper towels, etc.)
  • Trash Bags
  • Alarm clock, if you need one
  • Personal Toiletries
  • Suntan Lotions, Sun Screen
  • Medications
  • Bathing Suits
  • Beach Towels
  • Beach Chairs
  • Beach Umbrella
  • Beach Toys
  • Beach and Fishing Equipment
  • Flashlights, Radios and Batteries
  • Specialty Cooking Items
  • Baby Equipment (if not specified in house description)
  • Cash or traveler's checks and credit cards (personal checks may not be accepted at all locations)

We provide all linens (sheets and pillow cases) for your vacation home and ensure that all beds are made prior to your arrival; pillows are included. We also include bath towels and face cloths (one for each person the home accommodates), but suggest you bring additional towels for your stay. Beach towels are NOT included.

Each home will have a starter set of paper products for your first day, our gift to you. This set will include one roll of paper towels and one roll of toilet paper for the each bathroom as well as a small bar of hand soap. 

Many items can be rented from local vendors and delivered to your home on check-in day, including beach chairs, umbrellas, baby equipment, grills and even bikes and kayaks. Give us a call for local recommendations.

All kitchens are adequately stocked for everyday meal preparation.  Extra kitchen items are provided according to the individual homeowner's preference, not according to the size, location, or price of the cottage. If you are planning special meal preparations you should bring with you such items as: a food processor, extra large or specialty pots or pans, chef's knives, specialty cooking utensils, etc.
