What to Bring to The Dayton House

When the time comes to pack for your well-deserved vacation, many questions may arise as to what to bring to the Dayton House Resort. It’s easy to give all the familiar answers like swimsuits, flip-flops, sunscreen, golf clubs, beach towels and sunglasses. But what about the “must haves” for enhancing your Myrtle Beach experience? Here are a few of our top recommendations.

A good book: Imagine listening to the tranquil and peaceful sounds of the ocean waves as you lose yourself in a worthy novel. At the Dayton House, many of our comfortable lounge chairs offer perfect spots for reading — as well as views of the beautiful Atlantic Ocean and the stunning coastal Carolina horizon.

Headphones: Would you love to jam to your unique playlist as you sit poolside under the warm Carolina sun? “Just be you” is an unofficial motto at the Dayton House, and enjoying the rhythms of your favorite tunes is a great way to relax your days away at the resort.

Binoculars: Many may consider them a relic of the past, but binoculars can bring you closer to the scenes of nature that surround the Dayton House. Fixate on a school of dolphins as they swim by your oceanfront balcony. Gaze at the stars as you enjoy a romantic walk on the beach with your significant other. Or get close-up views of the many species of birds that frequent the Carolina coast.

A camera: Whether your camera of choice is full-function digital, an app on your smartphone or your granddad’s old Polaroid, bring it with you to capture the memories you make on vacation. Post, tweet or frame your pictures for a refreshing reminder of special times spent with family and friends.

Beach toys: One of the best things about the Dayton House is its beautiful oceanfront setting. Make the most of it by bringing your buckets and shovels to make a colossal family sand castle. Or pack in a football, Frisbee or soccer ball to enjoy some fun game time on the beach with the kids. You might even want to bring a fishing rod so you can try your luck casting in the rolling edge of the surf. 

At the Dayton House, guests can personalize their stays to get the most out of their vacations. In the end, you are the expert on what you should bring to make your stay with us one of the best experiences of your life.
