Planning for 2014

Yes, this was our biggest check in weekend…so it makes sense to starting planning ahead for our 2014 rental season!

The expectations of a beach rental have obviously changed over the years.  A basic property is likely to be passed over in favor of the updated “Coastal Living” décor home.

RentSighSo what do tenants need/want?

Large HD televisions with full cable package (one main set, with additional sets in bedrooms)

Wireless Internet – has become a necessity

Newer mattresses/ attractive bed coverings (some owners are providing linen service to gain a competitive edge)

Newer furniture and flooring

Newer appliances- including kitchen counter top items

Air conditioning (with a service contract for prompt repairs)

Well stocked kitchen, extra light bulbs, some paper products, cleaning products, and bug spray (for the common summer ants)

Comfortable deck/porch furniture

Grill with a wire brush to keep it clean

Extra trash/recycle cans (the average home needs 3 cans for regular trash, and 2 for recycling items)

Welcome Book with information & instructions (especially regarding the electronics)
