Akers Ellis has partnered with VayKGear, a beach gear delivery service provider, to offer beach gear rentals to our guests!

Introduced in 2019, guest reservations of 3 to 21 nights in eligible properties receive a valuable credit to use towards beach gear rentals during your stay!* The credit amount varies per property type and is disclosed in the property description. You may use your credit for bicycles, beach chairs and umbrellas, beach carts, and more – the choice is yours!

The process is simple: reserve a Kiawah Island vacation rental property with Akers Ellis, await your email from VayKGear to select your beach gear via the Akers Ellis customized beach gear website (email is sent 45 days prior to your arrival), and your gear will be delivered to your rental property on the day of your arrival. If your needs exceed your beach gear credit, you are welcome to add additional items at their discounted rates.

PLEASE NOTE: During peak seasons, beach gear inventory  especially bicycles  may be limited, so we recommend reserving your gear as early as possible.

*Credit is applicable to guest reservations of 3 to 21 nights only. There is no cash value if the credit is not used. Some properties are not participating in this program and will not have any reference to beach gear credit in their property descriptions.
