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

Surf or Sound Realty offers guests staying in any of our other homes the option of renting beach gear at 45% off (for reservations up to 14 days).

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.

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?

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?
