In the past, when we set out to find a place to stay for our vacations, getaways, reunions, corporate retreats or just anywhere but our same four walls, the only option we had was to find a hotel in the area that we wanted to visit. Then we had to figure out how many rooms to get, in order to accommodate our needs. Hmm, do we really want to cram everyone into one room with no privacy and one bathroom on our family vacation? That’s a hard pass for me.


Thankfully times have changed. Here on the Emerald Coast, you have choices. Now there are vacation rentals that can accommodate anywhere from one to twenty-eight or more people, in addition to the traditional hotels, except on 30A, where there aren’t any major hotels. Maybe you’ve never rented a vacation property and you don’t know what to expect or you have questions. Is it like a youth hostel where everyone can stay if a bed is vacant? Do you share any of the space with others? Do the homes come with bedding, toiletries, pots, pans, and dishes? Is this a reputable company? These are all important questions and you should know, not all vacation rental properties or companies, are the same. You absolutely should do your due diligence and ask a lot of questions.


As for the 30A Beach Girl properties, they all come with a fully equipped kitchen that includes dishes, pots, pans, silverware, glassware, coffee pot(s) and standard cooking items needed to prepare and enjoy meals, while on vacation. Our properties also come with bedding, bath linens, a starter set of amenities that includes, bathroom tissue, paper towels, garbage bags, dish soap, dishwasher pods, and laundry pods. They also have a washer and dryer in every property (some have more than one set). But if you’re still not sure, here are some things to consider when deciding where you should stay on your getaway; House or Hotel…
