Folly Beach & Isle of Palms Packing Information

Here are some tips for what's included and what to pack!

Download or print our suggested packing list below.

Many of our rentals do come with VAYK Gear Credit but not all! If your unit comes with a credit you can use it to rent, chairs, umbrellas, bikes, coolers etc. (must reserve gear at least 48 hrs in advance of arrival date)

***If your rental does not participate in VAYK Gear, please plan to bring or rent those items for your stay. We do not stock beach chairs, towels, umbrellas or coolers. Occasionally these items are left behind by guests, making them available for other guests to use but not guaranteed. Please see our vendor lists below. 

Linens & Bath Towels

Carolina One provides all linens and bath towels. 

Each bed will be made prior to your arrival with bath towels, hand towels and wash clothes provided in each bathroom. 

We ask that the bath towels are not taken the beach or to the pool. Please see the preferred vendors list for beach towel rentals or plan to bring.


Occasionally spices, olive oil, and condiments are left in the unit. You are more than welcome to use what is in the unit! 

We do not stock zip lock bags, tin foil, saran wrap, Tupperware, coffee filters etc. 

Plan to bring whatever groceries you, your family & friends may need. There are grocery stores on, or in close proximity to each island. 

Please plan your grocery runs accordingly with your check-in time, or schedule with a delivery service, such as Groceries Ahead (info below).

Kitchen & Bathroom Supplies

Carolina One Vacation Rentals stocks each home with starter kits for every bathroom and kitchen. 

The kitchen is stocked with a roll of paper towels, dishwasher detergent, dish soap, a few trash bags, dish towels and a sponge.  

Each bathroom comes stocked with a starter kit of travel size shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and bar soap. Please note some properties stock hair dryers, but it is not guaranteed.

If you happen to run out of what is provided, you will need to bring or purchase anything additional.   

Specialty Kitchen Items & Holiday Prep

All of our kitchens come stocked with standard cookware, small appliances, flatware, cooking utensils and stemware. Each unit contains a coffee pot (Keurig or standard), baking sheets, a hand mixer, mixing bowls and microwave. 

If you need a crock-pot, large stock pot (low country boil) or toaster oven please plan to make alternative arrangements.

WIFI & Cable

Each home comes equipped with complimentary WIFI (standard speed) and standard cable. We do not guarantee specific channels or speed of service. WIFI can be intermittent at times on the barrier islands due to the islands infrastructure. 

If WIFI is absolutely necessary we suggest bringing a hot spot. While not common outages can happen and can take time to fix. 

Baby & Beach Gear

While some of our properties may happen to have a pack n play, high chair, or beach gear shown, we do not guarantee or provide these items. Carolina One Vacation Rentals works closely with local vendors to supply children needs such as cribs, baby gates, high chairs, pack n plays, swings, toys, beach chairs, umbrellas, bikes, paddle boards, etc. Please see below for further details.
