So, you're headed on a vacation to Sanibel Island! It is time to prepare yourself for basking in the sun, island fishing, and just relaxing your days away. However, there is nothing less relaxing than heading to your vacation rentals in Sanibel Island and realizing you forgot something important! To cut down on stress during your vacation, we have compiled a list of things not to forget when packing for your getaway!

A cleaner Unlike hotels, vacation rentals are not cleaned every day. So it is always a good idea to have some all purpose cleaner and a few durable sponges on hand to clean up any spills and messes that pop up.

You won't be able to rely on hotel-sized shampoo and soap like you may during your hotel vacation. Pack more soap and shampoo than you think you'll need in and you'll be all set.

Taking advantage of the full kitchen facilities in our Sanibel vacation rentals is key. Not only will you be able to save money, you can even have your dinner on the beach! Aluminum foil is a perfect staple in any kitchen, and you can get creative by using it on the grill, a campfire, or in the oven for fun treats.

Paper products
It is no secret that any family goes through a ton of paper products every day. Stock up on napkins, paper towels, toilet paper and tissues before you go, or if you want to be environmentally conscious, bring extra towels along.

Sand toys
Don't let frantic packing get in the way of forgetting the essentials -- sand toys! Buckets, shovels, and even a metal detector can make for hours of enjoyment in the sun. Don't forget some bags to take your shells home in, as more than 250 species of shells have been identified on Sanibel Island and makes for a great early morning activity!

Rainy day activities
While we always hope for sun there is always the possibility that there will be a rainy day while in Sanibel Island. Just so you don't sit around bored all day, make sure to bring some books, DVDs, and board games along.

Simply keep these items in mind when you are packing, and you'll be all set for a vacation in Sanibel Island!
