What to Bring to Galveston Island

We've all had that stressful moment when packing for vacation when you ask, "what do I need to bring?"


Let us assist you with your packing woes! First, our vacation rental properties are privately owned and decorated to each owners taste. Secondly, each property is fully furnished, so from linens to cookware the property is ready when you arrive! Soar will provide a basic starter kit in the home but cannot guarantee full stock of household items in each property.


Here are recommended items to bring with you that are not provided or guaranteed in the rental property:


  • Toiletry Items:  toothbrush, toothpaste, hair products, prescription medications, first aid kit, paper products (we get you started with toilet paper), shampoo/conditioner/soaps (we provide bulk options in the property but understand some guests may prefer to bring their own).
  • Kitchen Items: food, beverages, spices, condiments, coffee, filters,  paper products, trash bags (we will get you started with paper towels, trash bags and single use coffee with filters).
  • Beach Items: bathing suit, sunscreen, sunglasses, beach towels, hats, sandals, umbrellas, beach wagons, ice chests, shade canopies, sand/beach toys, surf/boogie boards, children floaties/safety vests.
  • Miscellaneous Items: cell phone charger, bicycles, fishing gear, kayaks, binoculars, a good book, playing cards, comfortable walking shoes, bug spray.
  • BBQ Items: charcoal, lighter fluid, matches/long lighter, grill utensils.
