WHAT TO BRING
- Clothes and toiletries
- But make sure you go to the grocery store after you check-in, not before. Sticky, melted ice cream is a bad way to begin a vacation.
- Paper supplies. We will give you a starter supply of toilet tissue, paper towels, soap, laundry soap and dish detergent. It’s not enough for a full week, though, so plan to bring extra.
- Cell phone. Not every property has a land line.
- Beach towels. Linens & towels are supplied in the property; beach towels are not
