What is Required in a Vacation Rental? ~ Join Southern
What is required in a vacation rental? In order to provide your guests with the best possible experience, you’ll want to ensure that your property is stocked with all of the essentials. This goes beyond furnishings like a couch and beds to include lamps, headboards on beds, and even corkscrews in the kitchen. These items are required in addition to regulatory items such as, but not limited to, fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, or any pool safety features. Find out what we require our owners to have in a vacation rental to provide guests with a sweet Southern experience.
As part of our vacation rental program, in order to meet guests’ expectations and maximize income, we require the property to not only be furnished and maintained with minimal signs of wear, but to also be equipped with necessary home requirements. Just think: if it’s in your own home, you’ll want to include it in your vacation rental as well. Properties that do best in terms of renting, positive reviews, and repeat business keep the guest experience in mind with extra, thoughtful touches.
For starters, we require all windows to have quality treatments and even suggest blackout curtains in living rooms with sleeper sofas. Each bed must also have a headboard and bedspread or comforter in addition to dust ruffles. We also recommend that the dining area has enough chairs and barstools to sit the number of people the property sleeps, while the minimum required table setting is equal to 1.5 times the number of people the property sleeps. Our teams are happy to provide a full list of furnishing and houseware requirements when you join our vacation rental program!
As an added feature for our homeowners, we offer the chance to opt into our Clean Cover Program. This means that we provide your property with fresh bed linens, including comforters and coverlets, that are laundered prior to every check-in. To keep up with this, we have a state of the art laundry facility that ensures your property’s linens stay fresh and clean. With an average 4.5/5 cleanliness rating, 40,000+ cleans annually and over 2,000,000lbs of linen processed annually, we work hard to ensure your property stays spotless!
