What to Bring on your OBX Vacation

If you’ve never stayed in a rental house before, it’s important to know they are not like hotels. No matter how luxurious, rental homes don’t provide toiletries or the types of things hotels provide. Though some homes do provide linens, most only offer lines at additional charge. Also, no rental home offers complementary bed making.

So how do you know what to bring to a rental home? Here are some tips.
