Some of our clients here at A-Z Home Watch Solutions also dabble in Airbnb hosting, and most of them are constantly looking for ways to get good reviews and create repeat customers. Here are the top five things guests are looking for in their Airbnb rental that will keep them coming back for more.
After a long road trip or a full day of vacation fun, travelers want to rest and relax. Your Airbnb space should feel like a second home to them! Make sure there are plenty of sheets, blankets, and pillows. Keep the space at a comfortable temperature, and do your best to have plenty of places where your guests can sit or lie down.
Your guests are likely coming in from out of town, which means they’re unfamiliar with the area. Nothing ruins a vacation more than being scared of your surroundings. Give your guests peace of mind with a top-of-the-line security system. Your guests will be able to enjoy the trip worry-free with our Bluetooth-enabled locks and world-class monitoring software. Of course, this will also help you feel comfortable knowing your property and possessions are safe. That’s why a sound security system is a worthy investment for every Airbnb host.
One of the first things your guests will notice is how clean your Airbnb location is. It’s easier to relax and feel at home when the space in tidy and organized. Do a thorough cleaning in between each guest, and be sure fresh sheets and towels are available. Store unnecessary clutter out of sight in a closet (and don’t forget to keep it secure).
The reason more and more travelers are turning to Airbnb instead of traditional hotels is the convenience factor. Making things easy and stress-free on your guests is one way to ensure repeat business and good reviews. Avoid cancellations at all costs, and make the check-in and check-out processes as easy as possible.
5. Little touches
The things that are most memorable about a trip are those little surprises you discover along the way. You can create a wonderful experience for your guests by thinking outside the box and going the extra mile in a few small ways. How about having chilled water bottles waiting in the fridge and a basket of snacks on the counter? All guests will enjoy using the latest cool gadgets, like an alarm clock charging station or a useful Bluetooth-enabled lock.
