Making Your Reservation
A: If you are submitting a booking request within 30 days of your vacation, the full reservation amount is due at the time of booking in order to secure your rental dates. If you are booking ahead of time, 40% of the reservation is due at the time of booking, 30% is due 60 days before your arrival date, and the remaining 30% is due 30 days before your arrival date. We will send you reminders about payment due dates.
A: Yes! Many travelers aren’t aware that most online travel websites (such as
Airbnb and VRBO) charge a significant service fee on top of the reservation total when booking on their website. Reserving your vacation rental directly with us will save you a considerable amount of money, not to mention time.
Our Reservationists are here to help during the booking process and throughout your stay, plus our easy-to-use website features over 100 of the top Beach House Vacation Rentals in our area!

A: No, beach equipment is not included with your BeachBox home. Check out Rent BeachBox for all of your beach rental equipment needs! The delivery service offers exclusive deals for BeachBox guests at a fraction of the cost.
A: Unfortunately mosquitoes are simply part of the gulf coast living. The county maintains a regular spraying schedule, but we always recommend bringing bug spray with DEET to ensure your comfort while outdoors. There have also been rattlesnake sightings in the dunes by the beach. Please use caution when using dune walkovers or walking in the grass near the beach. Always keep an eye on your children and pets.

There are also several grocery delivery services available on the Island to have your groceries delivered to your BeachBox vacation rental. Contact us for our recommendations!
