Vacation rental tips for owners 6/29
Tip #6: Let your guests arrive as Kings and leave as Emperors.
This might sound like a cliché but imagine if it was actually applied.
Vacation rental owners or property managers should definitely strive to achieve this goal.
Greeting guests on arrival
Guests arrive at the vacation rental and is personally greeted by owner or top management. A brief 5 minute introduction, all guests are greeted including children, the guests' names are noted in a little book and the owner or top management learn all the names off by heart.
At the end of the preliminary introduction guests should be requested "consult" the owner or property manager.
Talking to guests during their stay
When guests cross paths with owner or top management, however brief, they are all greeted by first name, for children, and surnames for adults. More attention should be given to the children to build a bond with them, owner or top management will create an important "ally" on guests' departure.
Look after the children
If guests have children, free baby sitting service for a 2 hour break should be provided. The parents will welcome that break however short it is. If they want additional baby sitting services then this could be provided against payment. See our Addon module below.
Commercial gesture - So many ideas
Provide children toy pack free of charge.
Offer guests a bottle of wine.
Offer a bouquet of flowers picked from owners or property manager's "garden".
Offer guests something from the village, town or city or better still a towel with your vacation rental logo.
