Top 10 Things Every Vacation Rental Should Offer
Are you a vacation rental owner who wants to have successful bookings and repeat renters? There's plenty you can do to make that happen. You already know that your vacation rental has to offer a high standard of cleanliness and comfort—those are a given. But what else should you offer your guests to give them the best vacation experience possible and help your beach house stand out in a competitive vacation rental market? Here's a must-have list of items that matter.
VACATION RENTAL MUST-HAVES
1. PROPERTY MANAGEMENT
As a vacation rental owner, managing your rental well is a top priority. If the task is bigger than what you have the time and energy for, then choosing a professional and experienced property management company is worth its weight in gold. Let Century 21 Action Topsail work for you! Contact us today to get started.
If guests don't know about your vacation rental, how will they ever be interested in renting it? Professionally marketing your rental is key to bringing attention (and guests) to your beach home. From online listings to top marketing strategies, let us help give your rental the attention it deserves.
Amenities matter! Whatever your beach house has to offer your guests, be sure to highlight and draw attention to those things. This is a vacation rental after all, so whatever extras you have to offer your guests (pool access, a boat dock, pet-friendly options, etc.), you want to make sure they are part of your rental property description.
4. FAMILY-FRIENDLY FEEL
Families are your primary vacation rental audience, so your beach house should be welcoming and attractive to those potential guests. Vacation rentals are inherently family-friendly offering more bedrooms, bathrooms, privacy and amenities than a hotel or motel stay, so you're already off to a great start here.
5. LOCAL INFORMATION
Be sure to offer a good selection of local information available to your guests. Our Topsail Rentals Online blog is a wonderful resource that highlights the best of Topsail Island, NC and what it has to offer its visitors and vacationers. Local recommendations and information are always helpful to your guests.
All of Century 21 Action Topsail's vacation rentals offer guests the comforts of home combined with the luxury of a vacation. Though each property is individually furnished and appointed by the owner, all of our vacation rentals offer standard items including TVs, small appliances, kitchenware, bedding, towels and more.
7. LINENS & TOWELS
Asking guests to provide their own linens and towels for their vacation is just an extra burden on them. Here at Century 21 Action Topsail, our rental properties provide premium linen service which includes both bed and bath linens for your guests' stay and for their convenience.
8. WHAT TO BRING
Our Century 21 Action Topsail rental policy asks that our guests bring the paper products (toilet paper, napkins, garbage bags, dish towels, paper towels, etc.), soaps and detergents, beach supplies, minimal cleaning supplies, and any specialty items desired during their stay.
9. THE EXTRAS
Give your guests the extras they may need while vacationing (without having to bring it all with them) by offering local resources and where to find what they're looking for. We can help our guests reserve almost anything else they need for their vacation (beach gear, baby equipment, grills, etc.) by referring them to our preferred partners at www.sweetdreamslinen.com.
10. A MEMORABLE STAY
Your end goal is to give your guests a memorable stay filled with happy vacation memories and an unforgettable vacation rental experience. Not only do you want them to want to return to your beach vacation rental, but you also want them to spread the word to others. By incorporating all of the above-mentioned strategies, you are sure to have successful bookings and repeat renters.
