Return guests are generally considered a good sign in the holiday home business. If you are looking for ways to make sure your guests will return to your holiday home, then the below tips and suggestions will be of use to you.
Make the Rates Attractive
Thanks to the state of the economy worldwide, not many of today’s travellers are willing to pay a great deal for things like accommodations. If push comes to shove, they would rather spend the night at an overcrowded hostel, rather than at an overpriced hotel or holiday home. However, this does not stop them from expecting a great deal from you about your holiday home. Try your best to make the rates as attractive as possible for your renters. Consider having peak time (for the local holiday rush) discounts or off peak discounts.
Make the Decor and Atmosphere of the Holiday Home Interesting
Your renters are going to be spending a minimum of two days at your holiday home. This means they are going to have plenty of time to explore your home and get bored of the decorations. Make your holiday home interesting by means of colours and wall art. And while it certainly will add character to your holiday home, it is also good for you to keep in mind that not everyone has similar taste in decorating. To avoid making your visitors uncomfortable, opt for soothing colours and avoid contradicting designs.
Make Sure the Booking Isn’t Complicated
The last thing most travellers want to do is having to face a complicated booking system for your holiday home. This is especially true if they are trying to squeeze in a mini vacation while they are otherwise bogged down with work. Speak to your local Airbnb management agent and ask for tips regarding this. They might even be able to offer you tips for decorating your holiday home successfully if you’re still confused.
Make Sure the Furniture Is Comfortable
More often than not, your visitors might have to take long flights to get to your holiday home. And like we mentioned above, they might be leading busy lives, and might be trying to escape their hectic lives through their holiday. In this case, it’s obvious that all they want is to be able to relax completely in your holiday home. To make sure this happens, select the furniture of your home with care. The sofas and beds especially have to be ultra-comfortable and back supportive.
Anticipate Your Guests’ Every Need and Be Prepared For It
Think like a traveller when thinking of what your guests will need of you. Have a check like of things you will need to see to. Some of these may include water bottles for the bedroom as well as chilled water, a complimentary fruit platter for those arriving in between meals, a few blankets (even if it’s summer time), and perhaps even a first aid box with all its basic requirements. This thoughtfulness in combination to the above could very well be the reason your guests choose to return to your holiday home time and time again.
