What to Bring

COURTESY CONVENIENCE PACKAGE: Travelers have a lot to pack for their beach vacation and prefer to purchase the basic necessities after they get here. For your convenience, Litchfield Real Estate supplies your vacation rental with a complimentary “starter package” consisting of a few essentials like toilet paper, soap and paper towels. They won’t last the week, but they will help get your vacation started on the right foot!

FURNISHINGS AND EQUIPMENT: Furnishings and equipment in all Litchfield Real Estate vacation rentals are provided by the owner. All vacation rentals are equipped for normal daily living, including kitchenware for cooking and eating, pillows, and bed coverings. All rentals have central heating and air, cable TV, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker and washer/dryer. Litchfield Retreat condo rentals have access to shared laundry facilities on site.

Guests are asked to leave all furnishings in the same arrangement as found upon arrival. Should it be necessary to schedule a service call to move heavy or awkward furniture back in place, the cost will be billed to the Guest in addition to any repair costs for related damages.

LINENS: All beds are made and fresh towels are provided in all of our rental homes, except for stays of 5 nights or less. Our linen package includes all beds made, 2 bath towels and 1 wash cloth per number of people the home sleeps, 1 bath mat and 2 hand towels per bathroom, and 2 kitchen towels. Should you require additional linens during your stay, rentals are available at our office for an extra fee. Beach towels are not provided.

To make packing and travel easier, rental linens may be ordered for partial week stays. Please place your order well ahead of your arrival to insure availability and timely delivery. Bed making service for $6 plus tax per bed is also available upon arrival for requests made at least one week in advance.

WHAT TO BRING: If you’re staying for a week, then your “Things to Bring” list just got shorter! Our full linen package is provided to all guests staying 6 nights or longer in our vacation rentals. Find more details under LINENS above.

If you don’t have time or the space to pack everything you need during your vacation, you may be relieved to know that many items are available for rent through local vendors – and delivery is often free of charge. Rental items include such things as

1rollaway beds, cribs, highchairs, beach chairs, umbrellas, beach tents, kayaks, golf carts, grills and so much more.

GOLF CARTS: Our vacation rentals do not come with golf carts, but you may want to rent one to use during your stay. First, be sure you know the rules.

Vacation rental guests are not permitted to keep a golf cart at any of the Inlet Point Condominiums, Litchfield Retreat Condominiums or high-rise oceanfront Condominiums at Litchfield by the Sea.

Only insured and licensed drivers are permitted to operate golf carts in our area. Your golf cart must display the SC Dept. of Transportation permit. Operators must have a valid driver’s license and proof of insurance. Golf carts may not travel farther than 2 miles from the rental home address and are not allowed on the streets after dark. Violations of county ordinances can incur fines up to $525.

Some homeowners provide grills at their rental home. Check your rental description to see if one is provided. Grills are available to rent through local rental vendors. See WHAT TO BRING above for rental information. Grilling is not allowed on decks, porches or balconies, under any portion of a raised home, or near siding or vegetation. PLEASE BE COURTEOUS AND LEAVE THE GRILL CLEAN FOR THE NEXT GUEST. Call us if you do not have grill cleaning tools at your rental.
