Selecting the right clothing for your trip is always the hardest part. Think about why you are going on vacation - Is it for a casual family reunion? A romantic getaway? A girls trip? This will dictate what you need to bring, and take some time and plan out your outfits. Keep in mind most all of our rentals come equipped with washers and dryers so you have the option to do laundry. With warm pleasant weather year round, you packing list won't dramatically change from season to season. In the winter months, it's always a good idea to throw in an extra light jacket and a pair of long pants just in case the nights get chilly. A good place to start is with this list: 

  • Bathing Suits
  • 3 Short Sleeve Shirt
  • 1 Long Sleeve Shirt 
  • 2 Pairs of Shorts/Skirts
  • 1 Dress
  • 1 Sweater/light weight jacket
  • Walking Shoes
  • Sandals 


When you're traveling on vacation, you likely won't need full size toiletries. Large shampoo bottles are bulky and if you're flying you must comply with their rule of 3.4 fluid oz or less. Travel sized toiletry items help save space and are much easier to travel with than full size ones. You can always buy TSA approved empty bottles and fill them with your own shampoo, conditioner, facial soap etc which makes for an easy solution. Our Newport Beach vacation rentals are fully equipped with the necessities such as paper towels, toilet paper, tissue boxes, liquid hand soap, body wash for the showers, dishwasher soap, laundry detergent and sponges. If you forget anything, rest assured there are pharmacies and grocery stores within walking and biking distance or just a short car ride away. Direction to Pavilions Grocery Store


Beach Items

The three most important beach accessories that you'll want to bring are a baseball/beach hat, sunglasses, and travel sized sunscreen, so pack those before anything else. You'll likely be spending lots of your time at the beach, so think of what you'll want during your day. Bringing a good beach book is key and you can check out some fun beach read recommendations here. A light beach bag is also super helpful while you're on vacation and you can even use this as your personal item when flying. Keep your bag as light as possible because that leaves you room to bring gifts home with you. Fashion Island is a state of the art shopping mall in Newport Beach and there are plenty of cute local shops on Balboa Peninsula, Balboa Island, and Corona Del Mar.
