Nice holiday home
If you’ve decided to rent out your Nice holiday home for the first time, there’s a lot to think about. One issue on your agenda should be the things you should leave in your property ready for guests to use. Aside from the essentials, like cutlery, bedding and crockery, here are four other items that could help make their stay memorable . You can boost their chances of recommending your property:
A basket of goodies for their arrival
When guests arrive to stay, they’ve often been travelling for hours. They’re tired, thirsty, hungry and need a rest. What better way to greet your guests in their temporary home than by leaving a special basket of goodies to welcome them?
For example, a French stick, some local speciality cheese, butter, a bottle of French wine, soft drinks if you know children are coming, pastries, chocolate or biscuits. It doesn’t have to be expensive items, but if you package it up nicely in a basket. It will make a good impression when they arrive and they’ll have something to enjoy as they settle in.
A welcome pack
It’s always a nice touch to leave your visitors some kind of guide to the property and the area. But rather than just leaving a bundle of information guides or home appliance booklets, why not go one step further and make a special welcome pack?
You could include details of the property, how things work, what to in the local area, details of restaurants nearby. Also what to do if there’s a problem and include details of how they can contact you if they need to. If you’ve got WiFi in the property, don’t forget to include the code too!
Maps of the local area
While a lot of people rely on GPS or their mobiles for maps these days, it’s still nice to leave some paper maps of the local area in your property. It gives people the chance to pore over a map in the evening as they decide what to do and is especially useful if there’s poor, or no, WiFi in the area.
Toiletries in the bathroom
Many properties don’t provide any toiletries for guests, but it can be a nice added touch to leave a few items. You can either add a small basket of essentials to a bathroom – a small bar of soap, a small bottle of shampoo or a shower cap – or add a larger bottle of bath and shower gel. The latter can be easily fixed to the wall and simply topped up when required.
