Making your vacation rental stand out among the crowds makes a huge difference in generating bookings! We have some simple tips to point you in the right direction and on your way to being a listing master.
1. HEADLINE: SHORT, SWEET, AND INFORMATIVE
Creating a descriptive and to the point headline will engage travelers. The failure to include enough detail can steer people away. Choose a title that paints a picture. For example, "Lavish, 4BR getaway among the palms." For anyone seeking a retreat from the hustle and bustle, a title with imagery will lure them in. You also want those traveling with larger groups(or smaller) to know how many people your property accommodates. What not to do: "Large house near the beach, perfect for a getaway, and great amenities. Centrally located, etc." This is more for the description of your property. Short, sweet, and to the point is ideal.
1. PUT YOUR GUEST'S NEEDS FIRSTS
Offer amenities to guests that will make them feel right at home. A house guide is always a great resource to let guests know where everything in the house is located. Convenience is key! Make sure to have new age, modern necessities : Wifi, Cable, Flat Screen TVs, Bluetooth Stereo, & Coffee Maker. Having extra items to enhance the guests' stay will encourage them to book your property. Travelers with children will be pleased to find Pack N Plays, board games, pool toys(if applicable), and other kid friendly items. Grills are always a plus for guests wanting to kick back and enjoy the outdoors. Going above and beyond with your kitchen and bath features is always a plus and draws attention to your property. Having a well equipped kitchen with cooking utensils, pots/pans, and baking dishes will attract those who are seeking a homey feel. Make sure your bathrooms have blow dryers, shampoos/conditioners/body wash, toothpaste, and the basic necessities needed that we often forget when packing. Little things make a BIG difference, after all, it's the little things that matter most!
