5 Tips To Make A Vacation Bedroom Comfortable
Renting out your property short-term has become an increasingly popular way to get some extra cash. According to
US News, the number of vacationers opting to rent a property or room (instead of staying in a hotel) is steadily increasing. This means it's important to stay on top of your game to help ensure your renters keep coming back and/or refer friends. Here are 5 ways to make your vacation bedroom ultra-comfortable for guests.
Provide ample storage. Guests will feel more at home if they have a place to store their belongings for the duration of their stay. Make sure the closets are empty of everything except hangers, and completely clear out dresser drawers. Also, be sure to let them know if there are other spots that can be used for storage. This way when they're unpacking, it'll be easier for them to organize everything from their child's baby creeper to pool toys.
Make sure the room has decent furniture. You don't want visitors to complain about stained chairs or a hole-filled couch. Provide the same comforts they would have in their own home. If your furniture has been around for a while, slipcovers can disguise the wear and tear from years of use. If you want to get a little fancier, find coordinating furniture that fits the theme of your property's location or make it a little more upscale than what most people have at home.
Home Away From Home
Make sure it feels as welcoming as possible. People rent rooms because they enjoy the homey feel of where they'll be staying (even if they spend more time at the beach or wandering downtown). Leave them a guide featuring important phone numbers, attractions and activities, restaurants and more. Hang pictures on the walls that remind guests to kick back and relax, and put commonly used appliances in the kitchen for convenience. If you're renting during the holiday season, set Christmas crafts around the room for festive flair.
Hire an efficient cleaning service. The more renters you get, the harder it is to keep up with housekeeping between guests. Ask around or search online for a well-regarded cleaning crew that will make sure linens are fresh, the floors are vacuumed and any surface is wiped down and/or dusted. Your renters will be more than pleased with the level of cleanliness in their room.
Rainy Day Refuge
Stack up on activities for gloomy days. It never fails that at least one day of a renter's vacation is going to be wet and dreary. Place board games, books, magazines, cards and more in their room to help pass the time. They'll be appreciative that even when they couldn't go outside, there were still things to do indoors.
Making sure your guests' comfort is top priority when renting out a property or room. LTD will help you make sure everything is in order and your guests feel right at home.
