Self Catering Expectations
When searching for a holiday rental most potential guests start with a wish list that includes ‘must have’, ‘nice to have’ and ‘in your dreams’ criteria. The more you are able to offer, the higher your property will rank on their short list, so check out these most-searched facilities and services.
Water Based Activities
Water based activities top the list of most holidaymakers ‘must have’ lists. If you are fortunate enough to be on the water, or near a beach, this may be sufficient to attract visitors to your listing. For winter lets where cold temperatures are in the picture, hot tubs are in high demand.
Having an internet connection ranks highly on holiday home wish lists and for many families it’s becoming a must have. A good mobile signal is no longer sufficient for the tech-tethered family who want to do more than check email and a little light surfing.
The ability to take the dog on holiday is one reason self catering homes have increased so much in popularity. Accepting pets can create a real advantage in areas where there is a lot of competition.
Attractive patios, decks and balconies set up for al fresco eating appeal to most people. Having facilities for the whole family to eat outside is important. This means supplying sufficient outdoor seating and eating space for the whole group.
Improvements in technology have changed the value prospective guests place on a potential rental choice. LCD HD TVs, blu-ray dvd player; iPod docking stations and gaming systems are growing in demand.
Good Quality Beds
Guests want a good night’s sleep and demand quality mattresses and bedding.
