No matter if you are a new homeowner who is just starting to rent out or an experienced one, it is always beneficial to keep up with the latest trends in the holiday rental market.
Many homeowners seek to attract particular kinds of guests depending on the property they have. The trendy amenities are for the young traveller; the more sophisticated ones are for an elite traveller; whereas child and pet-friendly amenities are offered by those who want families to enjoy a stay in their vacation home.
In any case, it is always a good idea to keep the top searches made by guests on your holiday rental amenities checklist.
So let’s find out what are the top 5 amenities searched by guests that you should definitely have in your home!
Tourism has completely transformed ever since the pandemic’s changed the way people want to experience travelling. Now travel is not something only done in the peak season. Rather, people are keen on planning their vacations whilst keeping up with their work.
Besides, the post-pandemic traveller is increasingly looking for two very specific kinds of experiences: one where they want to go for a workcation and the other where they want to go completely off the grid. So unless your holiday home offers the latter experience, good Wi-Fi is a must! Especially for families with children, this amenity is a total hit as the younger generation is more tech-savvy.
You can also attract more families and offer a better, more gratifying guest experience by offering streaming services like Netflix or a gaming console for a truly welcoming and fulfilling stay at your property.
Travellers choose to vacation in a holiday home to either live like a local or to enjoy a totally private ambience with their loved ones. Therefore, it is essential that your home, depending on the size and type of property, has a kitchen that is well-equipped for catering.
You certainly do not want guests going through the hassle of running out last minute to the grocery store or restaurants just because the kitchen lacks basic amenities to prepare a full meal! If this happens, there is a high chance that the guests may not leave a very favourable review for your property!
So invest in good cooking ware such as pots and pans, sharp knives and modern appliances like a dishwasher and microwave to bring in ease to self-catering. We are sure that your guests would want to return to a place that was thoughtful, caring and well-equipped for an effortless stay.
