4 Essentials to Bring for Your Stay at The Black Hammock

You may have learned the hard way how important it is to be prepared on vacation. Reaching your destination only to figure out you’ve left something essential at home can be more than frustrating. 

Vacations may be a time for rest, relaxation, and zero responsibilities, but that doesn’t mean they don’t take a little prior planning to ensure that you can enjoy all three of those things during your trip. 

Before you set foot in one of our Orlando vacation rental at The Black Hammock, consider four essentials to pack away for your next stay:

1. Sunscreen

If you’re vacationing in the Sunshine State, sunscreen should be one of the items at the top of your packing list. 

A single unprotected day in the sun can derail the rest of your trip. Pack plenty of sunscreen so you can enjoy activities such as an airboat tour without the fear of painful burns.

2. Camera

While cameras are a feature on virtually every smartphone these days, even the best smartphone camera can’t compare to a traditional DSLR camera.

If you do have one of these cameras, make sure to bring it along. You’ll want to capture the moment you run into a gator on your airboat tour, and you don’t want to miss the many amazing species of birds that can be found on Bird Island, either. 

Even if you’re not planning on an airboat tour, you’ll want to get some shots of our gators: Chewie, Chloe, Grumy, Ziggie, Spikey, and Peaches. 

Keep an eye out for Baby and Morgan, our blue and gold macaws, too, for more memorable photo opportunities.

3. Toothpaste and Toothbrush

Our Orlando vacation rentals have everything you need for a luxurious stay: big comfy beds, WiFi smart TVs, and fully-equipped kitchens. Some of our vacation rentals even qualify you for discounted rates on airboat rides and restaurant dining. 

However, you’re going to want to bring a few of your own things from home, such as your toothbrush and toothpaste. To ensure that your oral hygiene routine is picture perfect on this trip, pack away your travel kit before you head over.

4. Your ID

For many, one of the finer parts of any vacation is lounging in the sun with a cocktail in hand. You can do exactly that at The Lazy Gator Bar, provided you are at least 21 years of age. 

Don’t forget to pack away that ID to make sure you can kick back along the shore of Lake Jesup with a cold drink whenever the moment calls for it. 

A Stress-Free Stay at Orlando Vacation Rentals

At The Black Hammock, we do our best to have all the essentials available to you just in case you forget something. Leaving home without certain items can make a vacation more stressful than relaxing. By packing the right essentials, you can ensure your vacation experience is as peaceful and free of frustration as possible.
