What if I don't stay in a home offering $250 of gear for free?

Surf or Sound Realty offers guests staying in any of our other homes the option of renting beach gear at 45% off. For example, if you rent $250 worth of beach gear, you only pay $140. That is a $110 savings! This offer is available for 2021 vacations arriving between March 27, 2021 and October 31, 2021. 

What if I want more than $250 of Beach Gear?

You can order all the gear you want. Just select the items you want, and if the total comes to more than $250 you simply pay the difference.

What if I’m just staying a few days (less than a full week)?

At this time the $250 credit only applies to full week stays.

How do I order my gear?

Once you confirm your reservation, click the link at the top of this page, enter your reservation number and you can select your beach gear items! We will also send an email to the person who booked the reservation to inform them of the offer.

Do I have to select my gear right after I book my house?

You can select your beach gear items up to 48 hours prior to your arrival date. Please make sure you make your selections by then, otherwise VayK Gear cannot guarantee it will be available or that it will be there when you arrive.

So you deliver it right to my rental home?

Yes! VayK Gear will deliver it on your arrival day. When you pack up to go back home, just leave the gear where you found it and they will pick it up, too!

Can I pick up my beach gear?

Sorry, no pickups. VayK Gear delivers everything.

What if I need to change my beach gear selections?

No Problem! You can make changes up to 24 hours after your arrival. Please note: Selection changes can be made up to 48 hours prior to arrival free of charge. Selection changes made after 48 hours prior to arrival are subject to availability, a $25 Delivery charge, and delivery will be made on the next scheduled delivery which won't necessarily be on your arrival date.

What happens if I don’t use all of the $250 credit?

This credit is only good for this vacation. Credit expires 24 hours after you arrive, so make sure you use all of your credit!

Do I need to put down a deposit for the beach gear?

No, but VayK Gear keeps a credit card on file for any damaged or lost gear.

Do I need to do anything with the gear when we depart?

Just leave the gear clean and where you found it. VayK Gear will pick it up!

What if something goes wrong, who do I call?
