How to Make a Vacation Rental Feel Like Home, Orange Beach, Alabama

It’s possible to make a vacation rental feel as welcoming as home. If you haven’t given much thought about how to personalize an oceanfront condo, here’s a list of articles to bring with you. 

What Should You Bring to Transform a Vacation Rental? 

1. Bedding 

Sheets, blankets, and pillows from home will smell like home. Although you may not notice their scent at home, familiar smells can be comforting while you’re on the road. Plus, a little pop of color and a touch of personal style will help you settle in. 

2. Photos 

Vacation RentalAlthough you shouldn’t hang pictures on the walls, bring a few framed photos to place on a kitchen counter, in the bathroom, or on a sunporch. If you have a photo from home that you display on a kitchen windowsill, place it in the same spot in your vacation rental.

3. Favorite Small Luxuries 

Small amenities from home—a mug, pair of slippers, or pillow—are comforting. Stow a few items in your luggage that help you de-stress when you’re at home. 

4. Diffuser 

Some vacation rentals may prohibit candles, but room sprays and diffusers are often allowed. Pack a diffuser and few scents to make your beach vacation reminiscent of home.

5. Entertainment 

Many rentals are equipped with TVs and streaming services. On vacation, you can watch whatever programs and movies are in your queue. Bringing along portable speakers, however, will help you enjoy your favorite music while you’re on the beach or unwinding in a vacation rental.
