If you’re the owner of a vacation home, or any other type of lodging aimed at serving tourists, then you’re probably always on the lookout for ways to attract more customers by upgrading your property. I travel a lot, and this is a review of the best place I ever vacationed in. Take it as inspiration to upgrade your property.
I Had Everything I Needed At The Cottage
Not only did the cottage have a backyard swimming pool, they even had a bestway saluspa that I’d use at night. It felt like I never had to leave the property for anything, because I could enjoy myself on site. My wife likes to work out (even during vacations), and she loved soaking in the hot tub at night to relieve her sore muscles.
Not only that, the kitchen was fully equipped and the backyard had a gas barbecue. We had friends over during our stay, and didn’t feel like there was much difference preparing the meal in the vacation home than it was at our own apartment.
A Spotless Vacation Home Is The Best
We wouldn’t say that we’re clean freaks, nor would we claim to have the most tidy home. However, it always feels good to walk into a clean hotel or vacation stay. We could tell that the sheets were fresh, and the whole cottage was spotless. If you’re in this industry, invest in getting a cleaning service to clean up after guests have left because they probably have better experience in making everything spotless and tidy.
Giveaways Are A Great Show Of Hospitality
Upon entering the cottage, we found a plate of fresh fruit waiting for us, and a basket of free toiletries to use during our stay. These might not have cost much to the owner, but they elevated the experience because we felt welcomed into the home. There were also a lot of extra sheets, towels, and pillows available to us (these weren’t giveaways), and they were all high quality. In fact, we didn’t use our own towels or bathrobes, because theirs were ultimately better.
The Key Takeaway Of This Review
The main thing to remember is that you should aim to make your guests feel like they are welcome. Small things make a big difference to your guests. If you have the capital, then consider investing it. Don’t change your prices for any small upgrades, but consider earning a lower profit margin because you’ll ultimately generate more revenue from your increased bookings.
Your guests are likely to be tourists, so keeping your place stocked with more than just the basic essentials will help them feel more comfortable. In the cottage we stayed at, we found salt and sugar in the kitchen, as well as dish soap and sponges. We didn’t feel the need to leave the cottage even once, which is a testament to how much we enjoyed our stay. Aim to please your guests, and anticipate their needs. You won’t regret it – and you’re likely to attract more customers.
