How to Get your Vacation Rental to Wow your Guests!

How to Get your Vacation Rental to Wow your Guests!

Getting your vacation rental ready for the high season can be a very daunting and time consuming part of your vacation rental business. I’ve found that my low season is the best time to tackle larger projects such as painting, revamping and moving around furniture and updating bathrooms and kitchens.

In my off season I’ve also invited an interior designer to choose both wall colours and fabrics and bedding to give my vacation rental a more “boutique hotel” look.

On top of these renovations and updates done on the inside of your vacation rental there is a most often overlooked and forgotten part of most updates which is updating both your front and back yards. Remember to landscape and create “curb appeal”

Myself I’ve preferred perennial plants over annual plants when redoing my garden. Annuals will give you consistent flowers all summer long but in the fall and winter they’ll will die off and you’ll have to purchase more plants the following year.

On the other hand if you have perennials, your garden will ebb and flow with the season. Perennials will give your garden an ever changing collage of colours and plants. I find that my perennial garden requires less care and watering than the annual garden. Also the nice thing is that your perennials will flower and bloom year after year with very little care.
