5 Ways to Take Your Airbnb the Extra Mile

5 Ways to Take Your Airbnb the Extra Mile

Renting out a holiday home is a fantastic way to make money from your second property when you’re not using it.

And while holiday lets are far from a new concept, Airbnb has seen them sky rocket in popularity, often the favourite choice with holiday makers from all over the world.

If you’re looking to give your Airbnb that luxury get away feel, then here are our five solutions for standing out and offering up that dream vacation experience.

  • Offer Free WiFi

This might seem obvious, but not providing free WiFi to your guests is one of the quickest ways to put them off your Airbnb.

It has come to be expected, and not providing it will make you seem behind the times.

Free WiFi is particularly important if your location receives a bad phone signal, however, it should still be supplied even if your Airbnb is located in the city.

  • Provide Amenities

Providing amenities in the bathroom is a simple way to make a good impression. Go all out on those luxury brands and give your guests a nice surprise.

Unlike hotels, Airbnbs are self-catered, so it’s also important to provide your guests with cooking utensils and crockery.

Sleek matching sets can be found in stores such as Ikea, here not only do they look great, but they’re cheap too!

  • Breakfast Should be Included

In a hotel, chances are, breakfast is included. This is a little harder to accomplish in an Airbnb, but not altogether impossible. Before your guests arrive, make sure that there is milk in the fridge, bread on the counter, and jam and cereal in the cupboards.

Your guests may not choose to eat breakfast there, or they may even buy food of their own, but providing the option of free breakfast leaves a good impression and may particularly be appreciated on their first morning.

  • Be Instagram Ready

Having an Instagram-worthy Airbnb is a great way to get noticed, and luxury and unique furniture can make all the difference.

It can be hard to find interesting pieces that will look great on the Gram, however, stores like Rockett St George offer a wide range of luxury furniture that is full of quirky vibes.

If your guests are regular Instagram users, they won’t be able to resist using your location for their photos, and more importantly, recommending you to their friends!

  • Provide a Local Guide

Providing a local guide of things to do and places to eat in the area is a great addition to help tourists, particularly ones who have never been before.

Level up your printing game and have professional looking leaflets printed from services such as VistaPrint. Not only will this add a greater sense of luxury to your Airbnb, but it will really demonstrate to your guests that you care.
