In our blog post “Vacation Rental Property Essentials,” we offer you a complete checklist of vacation rental items for your home broken down by must-haves and nice-to-have items. But what if your vacation rental is on the beach? Our recommendation is that you include beach essentials—towels, sand toys, boogie boards—etc. Want to provide these items affordably? We scoured Amazon and found great, inexpensive options for you:
Guests do not want to travel with their own towels, and you don’t want your guest taking your nice bath towels to the beach. This Softerry Extra Soft Large Beach Towel 4 Pack is only $36.99, are machine washable, and have a fun cabana stripe décor.
Families with young children will love it if you provide beach toys (and they don’t have to lug them from out of town). The Pretex Beach Toy Set comes in a reusable, easy-to-clean storage bag with a pail, shovel, fun animal molds, sand sifter, watering can, and more all for $16.93.
Boogie Board:Catch Surf Wave Bandit comes in a variety of fun colors, is highly rated, and is durable, yet affordable at just under $40.
Provide a nice bag for guests to carry all of their beach essentials to the beach in. The DALIX Striped Boat Bag comes in lots of colors, is a good size, and is only $15.
Other items to think about- beach chairs and umbrellas. For more vacation rental items and tips, see our "Vacation Rental" section of our blog. For additional resources to help you grow your rental portfolio, see our Resources Page.
