As our children have grown older, now ten and seven years old, our packing list has changed. There is no need to remember a pack-n-play or diapers, instead, we are sure to grab flashlights and nets to go crabbin’ at dusk.
We also switched from a beach cottage to a beach condo. When renting a cottage we were responsible for bringing our own sheets or renting some. Also, no household needs such as trash bags and toilet paper were provided. These were minor inconveniences but required forethought and shopping as soon as we arrived from our ten-hour trip.
Renting a condo is similar to staying in a hotel. Sheets are included and a starter package of all toiletry needs welcome you upon arrival.
