Most Sought After Amenities in a Vacation Rental

Most Sought After Amenities in a Vacation Rental

Important Basics

1.) Kitchen

Having a kitchen is very important in a rental, as many guests stay in a rental opposed to a hotel so that they can cook their own meals. If you have a kitchenette and not a full kitchen, you can still do your best to provide guests with appliances that will fit their needs.

2.) Wi-Fi

Fast Wi-Fi, that is. Many guests will become frustrated with  slow wifi or one that is hard to connect to.

3.) TV

Most guests will enjoy relaxing in the rental and watching TV. Even if you do not have cable, you can provide services such as Netflix or Amazon video.

4.) Washer & Dryer

Having to leave the rental and go to a laundromat in an unfamiliar area is a huge hassle for guests. Having a washer & dryer will make for a better trip for guests so that they do not have to leave to clean their clothes.

5.) Parking

Providing a parking spot is only necessary if you are in an area with limited street parking. Otherwise street parking is acceptable.


Stand-out traits

6.) Fireplace

Having a fireplace in your rental is a cosy touch to make the guest feel more at home!

7.) Hottub

Hottubs are sure to make your guest stay become a spa like experience!

8.) Pet Friendly

Many guests love having the option of bringing their furry friend with them. Having this option will be sure to bring you more guests.

9.) Pool table

It is always fun to have different games to play in a vacation rental. A pool table is a great addition to a rental and adds character to the home.

10.) 24-hour check in

Allowing guests the flexibility to check in at anytime day or night is a very great and accommodating option. Luckily with the help of a lockbox or keyless entry door, you will not have to wait around for a guest to check in.
