For holiday travelers, personal touches make the biggest difference. They may be far from home, but a few warm and inviting features can enhance their holiday with some spirit. Here are a few tips to make your vacation rental stand out during the holiday season, which can lead to great reviews and MORE bookings.
Tis the season…… for gifts! Treat your guests with some local treats. Baked goods and fresh produce from local vendors are both good options, and champagne is always great for celebrations. Make sure you include a bottle opener, champagne flutes, and any other kitchen necessities.
