Orlando Florida | What makes a great vacation rental

Rental homes are a popular option here in the Orlando Florida area.  People want to have their privacy with their own pool and not have to worry about being in a hotel and dealing with others.  So what things do people want in their vacation home?

  • Location! Location! Location!  Did we mention location?  
  • They want Television sets.  They want them not only in the living/family rooms, but every bedroom.  DVD players too!  And while we are on the subject — Videos to view!   If you don’t have videos in the unit, directions of where they can find a place to rent them!
  • Games and things to do when the weather is not cooperating with them.  Board games, cards, puzzles are great things to have in a rental property.  Even better and more desirable, Video Games!  Bonus items — pool table, ping pong table, and the like make for very popular rental properties.
  • Bikes to ride.  If you don’t want to have them, a place that they can rent them and have them dropped off and picked up.
  • Pool ~  You have to have a pool!  Hot Tub is an additional bonus item that renters want.  Homes with these feature rent more frequently than those without.
  • Fully equipped kitchen, and a grill to cook outdoors!
  • Items for a baby so you don’t have to bring them — crib, highchair, baby gates, playpen, car seat and stroller are some popular items that are nice touch.  Toys that are appropriate for a small child are a great touch.
Now that we talked about things that make a property appealing, what makes people rebook with the same owners again?
  • Great customer service – owners that do a personal touch, flowers or a bottle of wine upon arrival is a nice touch. 
  • Comfortable bedding!  There is nothing worse than sleeping on a terrible bed in sheets that are thread bare and not enough blankets!  Lots of towels!  Don’t forget beach towels! 
  • Clean home with little wear and tear
  • Great location — yes it is that important!!!!!!!!
  • Additional Services — renting a waterfront property?  Ability to rent a boat or jet ski’s for your stay.  Groceries delivered to the home before your arrival, requested videos at home when you arrive.
