If you run a vacation rental, you should do it in a fun and exciting way. This means you should offer all the basic as well as a few additional amenities products to the dwellers. This will not only show how careful and attentive you are to the minute details and the necessities of your guests but will also keep them coming back. Remember, providing the highest level of customer experience is the best mode of word of mouth advertising. Therefore, follow this guide and make sure that you improve your offering as a vacation rental owner or as a manager. This will easily help you to add more value to your listings as well apart from the fact that the guests get the highest possible value for their money.
The absolute basic amenities
Most of the time, vacation rental owners or managers focus on the absolute basic amenities only. They will provide the best looking and clean pillow covers and blanket but may forget to offer pill cases! Though not an absolute necessity but it still adds to the value and your offering. If you want to do well in your business, then you should decide what specific amenities that you should include in the base price before you start renting out your property. Make a checklist so that you do not forget to include anything that is necessary for your guests. Making a list is the easiest thing to do that will keep you aware of the amenities that you should provide to your guests, both the absolute basics and otherwise.
The list of must-haves
Your list should have the ‘must-haves’ at the top. This should include essential amenities such as linen, sheets, and pillow cover with additional sheets as well. Soap and toilet paper should find a secured place in it without fail. Apart from that, you should also make sure that there is at least one towel provided for each guest booked just like the pillows. You may even add sewing kits on your list to make it more exciting. When done, you should now shift your focus on the cleaning stuff, such as a mop, broom, and cleaning liquids. This will enable the guests to clean any spills or anything that may happen that needs immediate cleaning. Of course, you should have a cleaning service hired for cleaning the rooms daily and charge an extra fee for additional cleaning costs from your guests.
Internet access is one essential thing these days. Therefore, even if you do not add a hot cold pack in your list, make sure that you do not forget to provide free Wi-Fi or internet access to your guests so that they can get online in their leisure, whether they are business or leisure travelers. Add this service to your default price because if you do not, it will only harm your reputation, and your guests will choose another host.
Heating and cooling
Next, focus on the curtains and shutters mot only to keep the daylight away but also to maintain the heating and cooling effect in the room. This will ensure that your guests get proper rest and sleep well to feel fresh and energized the next day. You may even include reusable cold packs as well for providing a pleasant surprise to your guests.
Other things to include
Your list of amenities to provide to your guests will be incomplete without a few essential kitchen equipment, and items such as liquid hand wash and cleaning supplies like dish washing liquid, kitchen towels, cookery, and cutlery. Last but not least, include shoe accessories to your list to draw the finishing line. All these amenities provided will make your rental stand out from the competition, and for this, you do not have to spend a fortune.
