If you have a vacation rental or thinking of buying one, you know that guests love amenities. Some comforts are now considered essential, such as fluffy towels, kitchen essentials, and fast Wi-Fi. But what impresses folks well before their arrival? Let’s talk about the key things they desire when searching for their 30A dream rental.
1. PRIVATE POOL
Ok, we know this one can be a pricey project. But for those shopping around for a rental property to invest in, a pool should be on your wish list! Yes, guests love the refreshing waters after a hot day sunbathing or shopping. But a pool also improves the overall vibe at the home, and presents an open invitation for family fun, any time of the day. Don’t underestimate the soothing power of a clean, shimmering pool.
Beach chairs and an umbrella generally can’t squeeze into the overhead bin of an airplane, or the trunk of a car. Having the right gear like chairs, an umbrella, and a small cooler, can make an impact on your guest’s experience. Plus, nobody wants to stop at a beach shop, just to buy more stuff! For a bustling family that’s ready to hit the sand ASAP, invest in your guest’s well-being. Positive experiences equal positive reviews!
We love our dogs! They’re family after all. Which is why pet-friendly vacation rentals are so popular. Offering pooch-friendly stays will attract more guests looking for specific accommodations. Want to make an impression on a guest, and their stay more memorable? Simply provide a doggie welcome bag with treats and doggie bags! A little goes a long way.
4. AN OUTDOOR OASIS
Who can resist a cozy backyard setting with a firepit? Not I! A vacation home with nice patio furniture, outdoor games, and Adirondack chairs can completely change the look and feel of any house. An inviting chaise can instantly become a haven for reading and sunbathing. Patio tables invite dining al fresco, and a game of corn hole or putting green, creates positive vibes for your amenity-hungry guests.
True story. A complimentary golf cart recently sealed-the-deal for a guest who recently booked an Oversee home. Part of the charm of 30A living is the quick and easy trips to the beach and back. Zooming around the neighborhood, and back and forth from the beach and restaurants makes for fun family memories. Your guests won’t forget the convenience and fun that comes with a gulf cart! Gulf cart. Ha.
