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.

We've got the basics covered for you

We provide bed linens, bath towels (one set per person, you have a laundry for your use during your stay), dishwashing soaps, hand soaps in bathrooms, laundry detergent, trash bags. You'll have a start up supply of paper products (2 rolls of paper towels in the kitchen and 2 rolls of toilet paper per bathroom), plus a small bar of our glycerin bath soap.


Beach Towels

You will need to bring beach/pool towels.

Shampoo & Toiletries/Hairdryers

You need to bring shampoo, other personal toiletries, things you take as part of your daily routines such as vitamins so you feel great while you are here, 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. All of our homes have Keurig and drip coffee makers. Most of our drip coffee makers do require basket filters-don't forget those.

Seasonings/Cooking Oils/Foil/Napkins

Our kitchens are well stocked with dishes and pans, but you'll need all of the ingredients and seasonings, as well as any foil, plastic wrap, sandwich bags for leftovers.

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!

Each of our homes has some sand chairs for your use at the beach. You may possibly also find additional items like pool floats and boogie boards left by previous guests but we can't guarantee that or tell you what will be at the house for your dates. You'll want to bring beach umbrellas or canopies, or rent them.

For Summer Only, there are a couple of local companies that offer daily set-up/take down service for Beachfront homes in Gulf Shores.
