Vacation Rental Survival Guide: Getting the Best Guest Experience For Your Rental Property

Florida, the home of Walt Disney World Resort. Families come from all over the world to experience the magic of Disney. Eager families stand in line as soon as the parks open and stay until the parks close. They endure the crowds, withstand the heat & park hop until they drop. After a long day, they expect to relax quietly in their own private vacation rental home.

Florida is known as one of the ultimate vacation destinations. Visitors both young and young at heart party it up on the gorgeous beaches, dance at the celebrity famous clubs and eat amazing food. However, the spread of the Coronavirus has led all bars and clubs to shut down during this time. Guests who still crave this night life atmosphere will create one anywhere, including in a vacation rental. 

You will receive a variety of guests staying at your rental property. Of course the more the merrier when it comes to bookings. It is important to note that whether it’s families who are renting your house or folks looking for a good time, your home remains a stable and secure safe place. 

Ways to Ensure Safety for Your Guests as Well as Your House. 

Minimum Stay of 3 Nights & Higher Rates

When guests stay longer in a home or pay more money, guaranteed they will respect and appreciate that home more.

Non-Negotiable House Rules & Enforced Consequences 

Make house rules set in a written contract which will require the guests signature. Take action regarding consequences when necessary.

For example, let’s say one requirement for guests is to wash and put away dishes. However you find out that upon departure the guest has left the counter filled with dirty dishes. This led to more time spent cleaning the home. Solution: take proper action when a guest doesn’t uphold their end of the contract.

Clear Communication Concerning Parties or Loud Music

  In order to prevent any calls from neighbors about noisy guests, make it known that you do not allow parties or events in the home. If the neighborhood or county has a strictly enforced noise ordinance in place, inform your guests so there are no misunderstandings. 

Following these simple steps will ensure better experiences between you and any future guests. Whether you have one rental property or several, these guidelines will prepare you to stop any risky situation before it turns into a major problem.
