Having appliances in your vacation rental like a refrigerator, dishwasher, and washer/dryer are massive conveniences we often take for granted. These days, guests expect to find a fully equipped kitchen and a washer/dryer in the property. These appliances need to be checked routinely for top performance and to ensure nothing needs to be replaced anytime soon. For example, refrigerators require little maintenance and tend to last a long time, but check to make sure your refrigerator is free from condensation or frost and that the motor is silent.
Meanwhile, an uncomfortable mattress is likely to be the first thing a guest takes note of, so it’s something you’ll want to pay attention to. If the mattresses are lumpy, springy, or worst case scenario – stained or soiled, you’ll want to replace them ASAP! Rotate the mattresses every three months to provide a consistent level of support and comfort for your guests. Double-sided mattresses should be flipped twice a year to reduce the risk of sagging.
Everyone’s pillow preference is different – some like a firm pillow, and some like a soft pillow. Cater to different preferences by providing a mixture of both, but be sure to monitor the quality over time. Down and feather pillows have a longer life than synthetic, but no matter what type of pillow you provide it’s important to maintain cleanliness and good hygiene for your pillows! Use pillow protectors underneath pillowcases as an extra barrier. Pillowcases need to be washed at every turn, but pillow protectors can be washed every few weeks, which cuts down on the number of washes for your pillows themselves.
Guest turnover, occupancy, and climate are all contributing factors to wear and tear on your property. Updating your vacation rental frequently means happy (and repeat!) guests, and who doesn’t want that? An up-to-date property helps you stay competitive and relevant in the industry.
