vacation houseEvery vacation is made better when you use beach vacation rentals. You have your own kitchen, plenty of bedrooms for the kids, and you don't have to suffer through shared hotel walls. While these conveniences make a vacation house nearly perfect, you will need to make sure you've packed everything you need. Consult this checklist as you prepare for your vacation and you'll know exactly what you need to bring and what will already be waiting for you.

You Should Pack:

  • Ways to wrap up leftovers: While vacation homes come with many kitchen amenities, make sure you have plastic wrap, aluminum foil, and plastic bags to wrap up leftovers and snacks.
  • Toys and games: Many rentals will have some stocked, but you may want the kids' favorites for rainy nights.
  • Chargers: For all mobile phones, laptops, tablets, and cameras, you will need a way to make sure everyone has a full battery.
  • Homey momentos: You can make any vacation house feel like home for the kids if you bring some comforting objects and pictures with you.
  • Night lights: If the kids need a light to sleep at night, pack that up with you.
  • Beach towels: The whole point of vacationing at the beach is to spend some time in the water, right?
  • Bluetooth speaker: When you want to turn the night into a party or just want to play the right tunes to put the kids the bed, a portable speaker will come in handy.

You Don't Need To Pack:

  • Kitchenware: Most vacation rentals have a kitchen stocked with plates, bowls, silverware, strainers, pots, and pans.
  • Hair dryer: Save space in your suitcase and leave the hair dryer behind.
  • Iron and ironing board: Your vacation house will likely have these cleaning necessities already stored away.
  • Hangers: Don't worry if you brought nice clothes that need to be hung up, the rental will likely have hangers waiting in the closet.
  • Paper goods: One similarity to a hotel is that vacation homes often come stocked with toilet paper and paper towels for your convenience.

Before you start packing, be sure to check the beach vacation home's website. This way you definitely know what they already have and what you may need to bring. You may also be able to book your stay at the same time, as 53% of all travel is booked using online avenues.
