What to Pack for Your Beach Vacation 

Planning your family’s trip to the beach? Make sure to read our list of items that you’ll want to take with you or purchase upon arrival! When you’re staying at a beach house rental, there are a number of items that you might not think about packing. We hope that by sharing today’s list with you, you’ll be able to fully prepare for your Florida vacation and make it the best one yet.

At Place In The Sun, we offer a wide variety of vacation home rentals in Rotonda West, Cape Haze, South Gulf Cove, Englewood, Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda to meet your needs. Whether you prefer beachfront rentals, or apartments, we can help. Most of our properties are within a few miles from the local beaches. Browse our available properties today and book your reservation.

For the Kitchen

One of the features of a beach house rental that probably appealed to you was the ability to have access to a fully functional kitchen so that you could save money by not eating out for every meal. You’re probably used to your kitchen having a number of the basic items that you use on a daily basis, which means that you might not even think about needing to purchase them for your vacation home rental. Instead of waking up to no coffee beans, coffee filters, and creamer, take a quick trip to the grocery store for these items to ensure a smooth start to your day. 

  • Condiments 
  • Spices 
  • Paper towels/napkins 
  • Sandwich/snack bags 
  • Garbage bags 
  • Aluminum foil  
  • Plastic wrap 
  • Dishwasher detergent 
  • Coffee and coffee filters 
  • Sugar and creamer S 
  • Salt and pepper 
  • Groceries for meals  

For the Bathroom

When it comes to necessities in the bathroom, you’ll probably pack all of the personal toiletries that you’ll need. There are a few items, however, that you’ll want to find out whether they will be provided or you will need to purchase them so that you’re not caught unprepared.
  • Bath soap 
  • Shampoo 
  • Conditioner 
  • Tissues 
  • Toilet paper

For the Beach

Since the primary focus of your Florida vacation is likely going to be spending time at the beach, you’ve probably already put a great deal of thought into what you’ll need to have. Whether you have a thorough list, or just need to double check, we hope our suggestions are helpful. 
  • Bathing suits 
  • Cover-ups 
  • Beach bag 
  • Books and magazines 
  • Sunscreen 
  • Sunglasses 
  • Beach/pool towels 
  • Beach equipment (toys, chairs, umbrella, cooler, and beach blanket)


Depending on the ages of your children, some of the items in this category may be helpful reminders. As with any beach house rental, be sure to double check what the owners supply so that you can be as prepared as possible. For example, if your child will need a crib or a bed with a guard rail, it’s best not to assume that these will be provided. Most of the items in this category will probably be important at some point in your trip, which is why we hope that they serve as good reminders for you.
  • Baby equipment (baby gate, high chair, portable crib, crib sheets) 
  • Laundry detergent 
  • All-purpose cleaner 
  • Camera (don’t forget batteries or charge cord) 
  • Games and toys 
  • CDs/DVDs 
  • Fishing pole and tackle 
  • Eye glasses 
  • Prescriptions 
  • Cell phone and charger 
  • Headphones 
  • Writing material 
If you discover that there is something you forgot when you arrive at your beach house rental, then a quick trip to the store will likely resolve the situation. At Place In The Sun in Rotonda West, we want to work with you to make your vacation as smooth and enjoyable as possible. As you browse our list of available vacation rental homes, make sure to keep a running list of the items you need to pack for your beach vacation, and contact us to book your reservation.
