Akers Ellis has recently partnered with VayK Gear, a beach gear delivery service provider. As we strive to provide the best experience possible, we are excited to announce we are now able to offer a credit toward beach gear through this amazing company. Currently effective, as of January 1st, 2019, any Akers Ellis guest with a reservation between 3 and 21 nights in a participating rental property will receive a credit toward items such as bicycles, beach chairs, umbrellas, beach carts and more! How great is this? So, pack light because there’s no need to bring along these large items!  

Other Beach Essentials 

Although bathroom linens are provided, beach towels are not. So, roll up your beach towels and be ready to get them sandy! We also recommend bringing along beach toys for the young ones. In addition, SPF is a must if you are looking to enjoy some fun in the sun. Throw a few tubes of sunscreen in your bag and hit the road!

Sports Equipment

Planning on golfing while on the island? Or maybe playing a few sets of tennis? You will definitely want to pack up your sports gear for the trip! Equipment will not be provided but the beautiful, renowned courses and pristine courts are available for your use.


kiawah island grocery delivery

Don’t forget to stock your rental with your favorite food items! If you have a short travel time, bring the essentials with you. If you have a longer trek, no worries, we have a few options for you! You may either make your grocery purchases upon your arrival at the Village Market in Freshfields or use a recommended grocery delivery service and have your fridge stocked before even stepping foot into your rental. Heads up — condiments and spices typically are not provided, nor are food storage bags, foil, and plastic wrap. We recommend bringing or purchasing these items.

Kitchen and Bathroom Items

How stocked will the property be with necessities? This is a question we often get. Here’s your answer. We do provide a starter kit for each of our properties. This includes items such as toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent, dish soap, dishwasher fluid, and miniature shampoo, conditioner and body wash. Keep in mind, these items are not typically restocked.

Baby Gear
