What to Bring

We're excited you're considering or have already chosen to book one of our Gulf Shores vacation rentals. We offer a variety of resources to help you plan the perfect vacation. Check out our Gulf Shores Vacation Guide, and please reference the list below so you know what to bring on your vacation.

Beach Towels

You will need to bring beach towels. We provide bed linens, bath towels (one set per person, you have a laundry for your use during your stay), dishwashing soaps, laundry detergent, trash bags and a start up supply of paper products and bath soap.

Shampoo & Toiletries

You need to bring shampoo and other personal toiletries, and hair dryers (although we highly recommend "beach hair" while on vacation!).

Coffee Filters

Kitchens are well stocked with silverware, kitchen utensils, dishes, pots & pans, small appliances including toasters, blenders and coffee makers. Most of our coffee makers do require filters-don't forget those.

Beach Umbrella

Bring a beach umbrella if you want one. Some properties have a selection of beach chairs, beach carts, pool/beach toys. Usually the description will tell you. Expect a basic supply of these at our Gulfview houses and duplexes with pools.

Baby Equipment

We do not have baby equipment at any of our houses. Houses are not baby-proofed before your arrival.
We sometimes do have children's movies, games or toys.

You can rent a range of beach and baby gear that will be waiting for you when you arrive.

Beach Gear

Don't forget the Leave Only Footsteps ordinance requiring everything be removed from the beach each evening!

For Summer Only, there is one local company that offers daily set-up/take down service for Beachfront homes in Gulf Shores. iBeachservice provides canopy service, beach chairs, and more. For Lagoon-front properties you'll enjoy kayaks and paddle boards. Off the beach? They have hammocks, beach umbrellas and folding beach chaises but you will be responsible for transporting those each day.
