Did You Know You Can Rent That?
Packing for a trip can be the most stressful part! There is so much to consider, especially when you are going away for a week or more. A beach vacation is no exception. You need to think about meals, clothing, medications, toiletries, baby items, sports equipment, games and so much more. Then there is the matter of fitting it all into the car or luggage!
We wanted to let you know that there are ways to make this a little easier on yourself, especially when you travel to Sunset Beach, North Carolina.
Sunset Vacations can put you in touch with several local businesses that offer rental services, especially for larger items that you can’t feasibly bring from home (like a kayak). Read on to learn exactly how to rent bikes, kayaks, paddleboards, and more.
6 Beach House Essentials You Can Rent:
Most vacation rental companies require you to provide your own sheets and towels, and Sunset Vacations is no exception (read more about what to bring). If you don't want to worry about bringing all those linens, try renting them.
Sunset Vacations will work with the linen rental company by giving them access to your rental, and you can arrive to a vacation home already set up with fresh sheets and towels. Or, you can simply have them delivered and make the beds yourself.
2. Baby Items
Why do the tiniest humans require the most stuff? Before you know it, your SUV or minivan will be at capacity with a highchair, pack & play, baby gates for the stairs, not to mention the stroller.
Save room in the car and rent these items for the week. If you are flying into Sunset Beach, you definitely need to take advantage of this! It's also great to know that you can rent this important kid gear in case you forget anything. Call Patricia Reed at
Baby Quip 910-880-5327
3. Beach Gear
Several local companies allow you to rent large items like beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, beach wagons, utility carts, and life vests. You can even rent a beach wheelchair with huge wheels to help make the beach accessible to everyone in your group!
For the ultimate splurge, consider a "Beach Setup" from a company like Vacation Equipment Rentals. They will deliver your beach gear, set it up, and take it down each day. Yes, it's pricey but will make your beach vacation so much more indulgent.
4. Golf Carts
A golf cart is such a fun way to explore a town like Sunset Beach! Several companies provide golf cart rentals. Rentals are available to those 21 years and older with a valid driver's license. According to the Sunset Beach town website, "Golf carts may only operate on roads with speed limits designated under 35 mph, but may cross over a roadway that is of a higher speed." It's nice to leave the car in the driveway of your vacation rental and just use the golf cart to get around.
Renting a bike is another great way to explore the area! Go grab an ice cream, zip between the rows of pretty vacation rentals, and leave the car behind.
There are a lot of bicycle options that you might not have thought about, like an adult bike with a trailer for the kids or a trailing "tag along" bike for an older kid... mine have always wanted to try a "bicycle built for two".
6. Kayaks, Paddleboards Jetskis & more...
Ok, this is where it gets really fun! There are so many exciting options for gear rentals on Sunset Beach. Kayaks (double or single), Stand Up Paddleboards, Boogie Boards, Surfboards, Jet Skis, as well as any safety equipment you might require. You can also charter a fishing boat or just rent a fishing pole for the day.
