Attracting More Guests to Your Vacation Rental

Attracting More Guests to Your Vacation RentalSummer is the most popular time of year for your cabin or vacation home to be occupied. However, if your rental isn’t at max capacity and you’re still looking to earn a few extra bucks this summer, it’s not too late. With a little finesse on presentation and advertising, your vacation rental can be booked in no time. In addition to heeding the following advice, protect your dwelling with a Pigeon Forge Overnight Rental Insurance policy.

Present it professionally.

A rental might not be your permanent dwelling, but that doesn’t mean the decor and amenities should reflect that. People want to stay in a home that is well-furnished and has high-quality necessities and a welcoming atmosphere. Put some effort into decorating, offer relevant amenities such as cable and internet, and install the necessary safety features to the home before renting it out.

Play up the home’s best features.

Don’t neglect to sell the home on its best features. For example, if the home has a terrace, add a dining set. If the home overlooks a panoramic view, add misters or a firepit for your guests to enjoy year-round. Small features can make all the difference when selling the home to potential guests.

Exceed expectations.

According to Bric Vacation Rentals, an owner is not required to spend a fortune to create a memorable and appealing ambience within his/her vacation home. Guests’ satisfaction lies within the small details. If you have a barbecue, be sure the propane tank is full and the grill is clean and ready for use. Check all batteries in the remotes and confirm that all appliances are in good working order. Consider providing toiletries, beach chairs and toys, tennis racquets, bikes, books, or board games. New visitors will appreciate an information binder which includes emergency contact numbers, appliance and garbage disposal instructions, popular attractions and restaurants in the area.

Next, be sure to mind the small things – stock the fridge and pantry with essentials, offer laundry detergent and soap, and set out plenty of blankets and towels.
