How to Make Your Home More Accommodating for Airbnb Guests 

The key to being an Airbnb host is to have a comfortable home away from home for your guests. San Diego and its surrounding cities are hot spots for tourism because they have a lot to offer guests. If you have a home around La Jolla, you can end up with a lot of guests because this area has something to offer in terms of fun and entertainment. You want good reviews from your guests, and to get good reviews, you need to pay attention to all the details, even the very minor ones, when it comes to getting your space ready to rent out.

Comfortable Furniture and Ample Storage 

Your guests should have a comfortable bed to sleep on. Chances are, if they have a bad night’s sleep due to an uncomfortable bed, they’ll be writing about that in their review. Memory foam mattresses are the way to go because of how inexpensive and comfortable they are. The space you have available to rent out should have a range of furniture available for your guests to use to make their stay more accommodating. They should have dresser space available, and closets with extra hangers for their belongings. The furnishings all depend on what type of space you have to offer, whether it’s a full house or just a bedroom.

Plenty of Art and Accents 

Your space needs to have some personality to it to make your guests feel comfortable. Without any type of color, accents, or art displayed, your space will appear lifeless and cold. It can be fun to try and keep your space current with the style trends, but you can also utilize your own style preferences and get creative. You can absolutely play it safe with more neutral tones, but you can use splashes of color throughout the rooms to give them more personality and make things more interesting. Use plants, rugs, curtains, throw pillows, and art to really spruce up any room. 

Properly Working Appliances 

Just like having comfortable furniture to use, your guests also will need to have appliances that work correctly and don’t feel cheap. If their warm shower is interrupted by a faulty water heater, they’re likely going to be unhappy during their stay and probably complain or leave a bad review. The best way to earn high marks and encourage future guests is to provide high-quality items, especially when it comes to high touch items like light switches, faucets, and most things in your kitchen. Using Made In Cookware, a Viking Range, and a Samsung fridge will give your kitchen that luxury rental feel, a must when booking your home to strangers who can leave pubic commentary on your home.

 

Forms of Entertainment 

Not only to do you want the living spaces to feel extra high-quality while in them, you want to encourage people to spend time there. If your renting at a bottom price point then you may no need to provide more than basics like a bed, but most home-owners renting online would prefer higher paying tenants who will care for the space. Being able to entertain them with yard games, a jacuzzi, or a huge TV will make their rental feel like an oasis when they aren’t out exploring. Stocking the kitchen with lots of seating, light, and usable cookware from MadeIn will go a long way. Families that rent the home will cook instead of eating out which saves them money and encourages them to leave a 5-star review. 

Basic Living Essentials 

You’ll need to think about what you’d need when staying in a place outside of your home. Certain things such as towels, cookware, extra linens, toilet paper, toothpaste, hairdryer, coffee maker, disposable razors, and utensils are all must-haves for your rental. If you choose not to offer certain things, such as towels or bed sheets, you need to make this clear in your listing so guests will know to plan ahead. 

 

If you think you have everything your guests could possibly need, it doesn’t hurt to ask your guests if there’s anything you can do to improve their stay. Also, make sure to comb through reviews that your past guests leave to make sure you address any concerns. Being responsive, thorough, and open to suggestions is a great way to bring more guests to your rental.
