Valentine’s Day is approaching fast and there will be women everywhere wishing their partners would whisk them away for a romantic weekend in the sun. These days people’s expectations of everything, particularly holidays, are much higher than they used to be and it’s important to keep up! When couples and families go on holiday now they want the standards of luxury to be equal to or better than what they have at home. When people decide to rent out a holiday home instead of a hotel it’s because they want all the benefits of a ‘home’ and to make it their own while they are there. Holiday homes are not just a roof over their head with a pool outside, these days it has to be the whole hog.
Social networking has changed the way we communicate and it’s also a great tool for promoting your property. When visitors rent your holiday home they are likely to post images and videos from their holiday up online for the world to see. Word of mouth is the quickest form of promotion and if your property is looking desirable it’s an excellent way to showcase it for free!
So with Valentine’s Day coming up, what can you do to make your holiday home more appealing to couples looking for a touch of luxury and a holiday they will never forget? Here are a few tips:
- Furniture – Clean, quality furniture makes the world of difference when walking into a holiday home and takes it from looking generic to very well presented and looks amazing in photos. HomeCareOnTheWeb can help you with sourcing quality furniture at good prices if needed.
- Household Items – It’s all about the detail! Things like lamps, bed covers, kitchen equipment, pictures and towels make a surprisingly big difference to the appearance and ambience of the room. They should all compliment the furniture and decoration with no mix and match. Any linen should be as new and as good quality as possible to reflect to effort that has gone into making this home beautiful just for them.
- Facilities – Ideally people want equal or better facilities than they have at home. Tasks like cleaning, preparing food and getting ready should all be just as easy as their own home especially if they will be spending a lot of time in there during their stay. For instance having a fresh coffee maker, dishwasher, smoothy maker, hairdryer, large mirrors or anything else that would make their holiday more luxurious could have them coming back year after year.
- Extras – If you want to promote your property specifically for last minute Valentine’s Day breaks, you could offer them lovely extras such as a meet and greet service when they arrive at the airport, flowers, chocolates and champagne waiting at their holiday home, luxury mini toiletries in the bathroom and much more. HomeCareOnTheWeb can arrange all of this for you even if you are not in the country and make sure the property is ready for your guests to arrive.
