I just went to the website. www.vacationvault.com. These are great. I am definitely getting one. Last year we rented a car so we had the truck to put things in.....next summer we will go for the jeep with thise great gadget! Now all I need to decide.......what color???
We suggest that everyone consider the vault or anything that you can Lock to the palapa. During our vacay 2 weeks ago while I was in the water (2 hours), a person walked over and grabbed my chair; untied my beach bag from the palapa; took out my only water container; took 3 of our towels (my wife had just taken our grandson back to the rest room) and left the bag in the sand behind the palapa.
When she came back, she saw him sitting next to her chair in my chair (I had my hat velcroed to the chair); he said it was "his" chair, his palapa and that the bag belonged to one of his "friends".
My wife came to the surf and called me back to the palapa... this person insisted it was his chair, his towels, his palapa, etc.
He came up with 3 diff versions of why it was "his"palapa, etc. ...
Later, the security guards spoke to him and he moved-on to the next palapa and sat there; took 2 towels... ad nauseum...
Later, he confronted a family member and went through the circle j.. story lines & made a mindless threat that he would look for us the next day and make sure he took our towels.
The La Cabana folks were good people and settled the towel issues for the us.
