The number of vacation rental and property owners planning to rent their house out continues to rise. 32 percent of investment property owners planned to rent their home as short-term rentals, up from 25 percent the following year. As this is certainly a viable source of income, and not to mention a place to retreat with family and friends when needed, there are a handful of duties VR property owners must consider to make their place a comfortable retreat. To continue to attract quality guests, it’s imperative to provide a welcoming environment, beyond the good ol’ making sure everything is clean.
According to a consumer survey commissioned by Airbnb, an overwhelming 97 percent of US travelers surveyed say amenities impact their travel experience. This means everything from labeled things to providing full length mirrors and personalized notes. To help you receive rave reviews and keep the rental requests flowing, we’re providing some vacation rental printables, courtesy of The Zebra, to ensure you have the customized, amenity-filled rental that vacationers dream of.
