What to pack? Packing tips for a successful vacation.

You’ve booked a trip to Jacksonville and are staying at one of our luxurious Welcome Home Rental Properties. The easy part is done! Now, what to pack? If packing for your upcoming Florida trip seems daunting, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered with a list of packing items to ensure you pack all the travel essentials.

Because every traveler is different, knowing exactly what to bring depends on the person. Below are a few common items that may be helpful.

A Beach Bag or Backpack: Many Welcome Home Rental Properties are on or near the beach. If you are planning to visit the beach, it is essential to bring a beach bag for towels, sunscreen, snacks, and water.

Packing Cubes for Your Suitcase to Keep all Items Organized: Packing cubes are a great way to separate your clothing and toiletries. You can have a cube for each clothing style, i.e., shorts, shirts, dresses, etc., that makes finding your daily clothing needs simple.

Reading Materials: At Welcome Home Rental Properties, relaxation for our guests is of utmost importance. Whether you are inside or outside, there is a comfortable place to cozy up with a good book.

A Sunhat or Ballcap: We all love the sun, but too much can be harmful. A nice hat can help protect you from UV rays.

Sunglasses: Sunglasses are a must when protecting your eyes from the beaming sun.

Sandals or Flip-Flops: The sand can get hot, so pack a pair of sandals or flip-flops to protect your feet while cruising the beach.

Comfortable Swimsuits and Wraps: Whether walking down to the beach or soaking up the sun in one of our deluxe backyard paradises, a swimsuit is a must. And you can throw a wrap over it to venture into town.

A Cellphone with a Good Camera to Take Beach and Sunset Pictures: We love it when you capture fond memories at one of our Welcome Home Rental Properties. Don’t forget to take pictures and tag us @welcomehomerentalproperties!

Thin Raincoat: Florida climates can change quickly. There may be bouts of rain during your vacation. Always pack a light raincoat to keep you dry.

A Cosmetic Kit with Travel-Size Reusable Containers: We love our favorite face moisturizers, serums, and lotions. Bring them! Reusable containers allow you to take your favorite creams in small quantities, so you have just enough to get you through your vacation.

Ziplock Bags: This multipurpose item is excellent for many uses. Ziplock bags encase your items such as sunscreen, chapsticks, and phones. They can also protect valuables from water damage or prevent moisture from getting out of items. They are also great for hair ties, money, or small items you may take to the beach.

Wireless Speaker: Many of our properties are near a beach or have pools. A wireless speaker is an excellent addition if jamming to your favorite tunes while lounging is a must.

And that’s it! We hope this packing list provides helpful tips and gets you excited about visiting our Welcome Home Rental Properties in Jacksonville, Florida. If you haven’t decided which property best suits you, see our reservations page to choose your perfect getaway.
