Four Star Guest Room
Thoughts for successful home or condo rental.
Make your guests feel comfortable: Provide a reading chair if there’s room, a small writing desk, a reading lamp within reach of the bed; books about the area, current magazines, some local postcards, good pens; a TV is a must so they can catch the news and have entertainment while staying inside. Think of providing room fans along with air conditioning or course. Provide some bottled water in the refrigerator for your guests initial arrival.
Anticipate your guests’ needs: Have information about your rental place so your guests know what all you are providing and what is around the area such as restaurants, mini-marts, shopping, etc. Remember some of the people coming to rent your place are on vacation and maybe never have been to the area before so make sure that they feel comfortable and know what to do in the area so they will be happy with their stay and want to come back. Ample electrical outlets are a must these days, so guests have a place to recharge their cell phone, digital camera, or laptop. Make space by keep the closet empty or at least tidy with a few feet available for hanging clothes. Include hangers with clips for skirts or pants. If you are not providing maid service then you should provide your renters with some cleaning supplies such as broom, mop, and basic cleaning supplies to make it easy for them to keep your place clean and neat. This would be important for long term rentals.
Treat your guests to luxury: Provide them with the same quality of mattress, bed linens and towels that you have for yourself. Sheets with 250 thread counts or higher feel better and last longer after repeated washings. Buy 100 percent cotton for more comfort. White linens are easy to care for and always look right. Launder linens and towels just before guests arrive. Have a basket stocked full of good quality toiletries. Don’t forget extra blankets for chilly nights. A comfortable bed will keep them refreshed and happy. Freshen the room with scented candles placed for decoration.
Plan your rental room like you would like for yourself:
Your guest will feel special with this thoughtful gesture and will want to return and or recommend your place to friends.
