Holiday let guests are expecting more and more from their home away from home. Here are 8 amenities your holiday let property shouldn’t be without!
Flexible self check-in is a great selling point for your property as this means guests don’t have to arrange their travel around your check-in process. It can also be a lot easier for you.
We understand that many property owners enjoy the process of personally welcoming guests, however having a flexible self check-in option allows you to offer this as an option. This also means that guests who have a busy travel schedule can be in and out quicker.
WiFi connection is a must have for city or apartment breaks where guests may be travelling with work. This differs with more relaxed holiday lets such as glampsites, however we still recommend offering WiFi somewhere on site.
Plenty of kitchenware! If your guests want to cook for themselves, it will be important to them that they have all of the kitchenware essentials in order to prepare a home cooked meal. From the absolute basics such as a toaster to other items like a toaster, chopping boards, good quality knifes and more.
Games, books and entertainment will be appreciated on those rainy days, especially for family friendly holiday properties. Keep a book shelf full of novels guests can borrow for their day at the beach, board games and cards for after dinner entertainment and a TV for cosy mornings by the fire. All of these extras are what make a family holiday even more memorable!
Extra bedding and blankets ensure your guests never get too cold even on the rainy days. Keep a basket of blankets next to the sofas so they are easy to grab in the evenings. Don’t forget the picnic blanket for warmer weather too!
Dishwasher, washing machine and dryer are often missed home comforts whilst travelling. Especially for families with muddy clothes! This will also allow guests to pack light, knowing they will be able to wash and reuse clothes during their stay.
A secure garden can serve as piece of mind for parents and pet owners!
Provide a BBQ for the ideal summer evenings. This is always a popular amenity for families and couples alike. Just ask that guests clean the BBQ after use, leaving it how they found it. You don’t want it to become an extra job for you!
