I brought my own chef's knife, cutting board and spices, and was glad I did. They had no spices other than salt/pepper, and the cutting board was a piece of thin plastic the size of a small plate.

If you have anyone in your life who may be "departing this orb" soon and whose funeral you would be expected to attend, depending on how long you are planning on being at the vacation rental, you may want to have funeral-appropriate attire with you. (FWIW, I've read that members of the Royal Family always travel with a funeral outfit.)

I now take my passport with me whenever I am traveling domestically for more than a few days, as who knows if I might need to fly to Canada or overseas, unexpectedly, on short notice. (Of course, this means I am prepared to take advantage of a cheap cruise or airfare, while I am vacationing, too.)

Here's what we bring: favorite seasonings that we probably won't find. At least 2 good knives, and 2 good steak knives (hate the serrated edge kind). Our coffee mugs. Roku player (don't want to put my account info on their smart tv). Our favorite brand of coffee, etc. Our favorite pillows. Anything else we might expect the rental to not have.
Don't forget that you can pick up nice jackets, or other clothing items at Goodwill or other types of thrift stores if needed.
You do not have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body.
