Beach Gear Program 

Guests with reservations of 3 to 21 nights at participating Akers Ellis properties will receive a credit towards beach gear rentals during your stay! Guest's love the VayKGear program, but don't just take our word for it:

"Our experience with VayKGear was amazing! We reserved necessary items online weeks before our trip and arrived at our home for the week with our gear waiting on us! The bike cart made transporting items to the beach a breeze. Leaving the borrowed items when we checked out was so convenient! This made our rental experience so much better!!"

"Wow! So impressed with the service leading up to our booking and arrival. Everyone we worked with at Akers Ellis was fantastic -- quick to respond, knowledgable, helpful, and VERY patient (we were traveling with multiple families...and had lots of questions...). We arrived yesterday and the house is beautiful -- far exceeds the photos, even. Everything is pristine and the house has everything we need for the week. We're so excited to be here and will definitely be back! We've recommend Akers Ellis to everyone we know, and are already looking forward to our next trip. Thank you, Akers Ellis team! We really appreciate everything!" - J. Hollander
