We rented a small 2 bedroom apartment. You will need to bring everything you need except towels and kitchen utensils. I also think the owners should invest in some new twin beds soon, but they were comfortable enough for my child to sleep in. I also had a cart to haul stuff to the beach. That was a plus!
