From beach houses to condos, a vacation rental allows you to immerse yourself in the community you're visiting while also providing an enhanced level of privacy and comfort. However, many are unsure of what items they’ll need and what will be made available. The professionals at Southern Rentals & Real Estate, with locations in Destin, FL, and all along the Gulf Coast, understand the stress that the unexpected can have on vacationers, so they've outlined everything you need to know about what's included in your vacation rental, below.
Vacation rentals come ready-to-go with many of the furnishings common in your home. This includes beds, sheets, and living room furniture. Full and half kitchen units are usually stocked with necessities like coffee makers, while some units also have washers and dryers.
If you have younger children, you may need access to specialty items like high chairs and cribs. Since they're not a common need, they're typically not included with the home. You can bring them with you if you're traveling by vehicle, or if you're planning on flying, there are also rental options in the area.
Most rentals include standard supplies like toilet paper and trash bags, but they're typically only stocked to cover your first day or two of vacation. For longer rentals lasting at least three days, you should consider purchasing toiletries and kitchen supplies. Also, remember to pick up laundry detergent and dishwashing supplies to ensure you're properly prepared for the end of vacation cleanup.
