Vacation rentals offer a level of privacy, independence, and self-sufficiency that hotels do not. To ensure the comfort of your stay and access to all the necessities, several must-haves should be added to your packing checklist.
What to Bring to a Vacation Rental
Cooking meals in a vacation home makes any trip away more economical. Rental properties will stock kitchens with salt and pepper, pots and pans, and cutlery, but you should bring along a set of spices. If you plan your meals before you leave home, you can add the spices you’ll need for recipes to your list. You'll need cumin for hummus and red pepper flakes to heighten the flavor of your marinara sauce. Check that each bottle is tightly closed, and pack them together securely in a small box.
Vacation rentals usually provide bed linens, but having your own on hand will make a place feel like home. For families with small children, who may have favorite sheets, blankets, pillows, and stuffed animals, packing a few bedroom linens will help everyone sleep and nap better. Also, don't forget the towels. You may need a few backups. With all the trips to and from the pool and the beach, they’ll come in handy. No one wants to be stuck doing laundry every day when they’re on vacation.
3. Electronics Chargers
Make sure you have enough chargers for all the electronic devices in your household. Bring along a few additional ones in case any break or get mislaid. Also, take along a few extension cords. They’ll come in handy if any outlets are tucked away behind hard-to-move sofas.
