I often wake up on summer mornings with the grand idea to head to the beach for the day. It’s the beauty of living two hours away, right? What could be better than a lazy day at the beach? But as any parent can attest, a day at the beach is anything but lazy. Parking, scoping the perfect spot, the endless reapplication of sunscreen, prepping a cooler designed to handle any food or drink request, and the most burdensome part of all–schlepping the beach gear to and fro. Suddenly another day at the pool doesn’t seem so bad.
Well, no longer.
Cape Fear Beach Rentals is a beach equipment company servicing Wrightsville Beach and Figure Eight Island. They provide everything from beach chairs and umbrellas, 10×10 tents, to beach games and sand toys. I simply went online, selected what I needed for the day, gave the address of the public beach access (listed conveniently on their web site), and voila– everything was set-up and awaiting our arrival. After our fun-filled day, I sent a text and they came to break everything down. It was my easiest day trip to the beach on record.
My grand total was $45 to rent an umbrella, two comfortable beach chairs, and a bag of sand toys. Money well spent.
I ordered my equipment two days before our scheduled day trip, but I know Cape Fear Beach Rentals can often accommodate any day of requests. You can check out their Facebook page to see their rental options in action.
Cape Fear Rentals also provides equipment for those renting houses at Wrightsville Beach. Something I will consider the next time we vacation at the beach.
Bottom Line: I will never day trip to the beach again without using Cape Fear Beach Rentals.
