How to Make Your Beach Rental Feel Like Home
For Rent: 14 Aquidneck Avenue in Watch Hill
With domestic travel projected to be on the rise again this summer, both short term and long term beach rentals are in high demand. Not only does upgrading your property increase the amount you can charge for rent, it also improves guest satisfaction and retention. Attention to detail is everything- especially in the luxury real estate market, and beach rentals are certainly no exception. Here are a few tips to consider while prepping your home for this summer season.
Skip the basic WiFi and upgrade to a plan with faster speeds. The incremental increase in monthly expense will pay off big time when it comes to impressing your guests, especially with the continuation of WFH. It’s also worth considering adding a streaming service or two to the TVs in your beach home- guests will appreciate the convenience of this extra offering.
The ability to enjoy a home-cooked meal while on vacation is one of the big selling points of renting a beach home, so make sure to optimize your kitchen. Make sure to stock ample supplies- from cookware to cleaning products. Including thoughtful amenities such as a built-in wine cooler or a Nespresso machine offers an extra touch of luxury and comfortability.
INVEST IN LINENS
Luxurious bedding has become a hotel staple. Bring the resort experience to your beach rental by investing in quality linens. Providing plush robes, towels, cozy blankets and lush bedding will instantly make guests feel at home.
AESTHETIC IS EVERYTHING
Focus on creating a bright + airy home away from home- think seaside hues, light wood tones, and tasteful nautical touches. While not every piece of furniture needs to be perfectly new, curate a luxurious and cohesive space with fun pillows, gauzy curtains, and more.
DOWN TO THE DETAILS
Home is where the heart is- and while personal touches like family photos are a void concept for a beach rental, consider including guides to your favorite local spots, framing photos of adjacent landmarks, and decorating the walls with the work of local artists for an extra special touch.
