Amenities are a huge selling point for potential guests looking to visit your vacation home. A property complete with top features has a unique angle for advertising and is more likely to be booked and garner positive online reviews.
An Airbnb survey discovered that 97% of U.S. travelers’ vacation experiences were directly impacted by the availability of amenities at their booking. Have you thought ahead to the needs of your guests and what might contribute most to their vacation experience? As a Champions Gate Airbnb property management company with years of experience managing vacation homes, we’re sharing insight into four of the amenities vacationers love most.
Private Pool or Hot Tub
No matter the style, layout, or location of your vacation home, a private pool or hot tub is a top-voted amenity by guests. Champions Gate is just a few short minutes from Disney World, so it’s the perfect destination for guests with children. A pool provides an option for guests looking to relax after a day in the sun and adds a kid-friendly perk to your property. If you’re not sold yet, a TripAdvisor survey discovered that 46% of guests rated a pool as their motivating factor to book.
On the other hand, if you’re hoping to market your vacation home as a romantic summer getaway, a hot tub on a private porch is the perfect draw for couples. In that same survey, it was 32% of guests’ primary motivation to book a rental. Both of these amenities can greatly raise your property’s rental value, encourage repeat bookings, and prove a worthwhile long-term investment.
Washer and Dryer
Champions Gate is positioned near a variety of beaches, so many vacationers schedule their vacation to extend a week or longer. Because of this, having the option to wash a few loads of laundry during their visit—due to sand and sun—is a massive perk. If you are marketing towards the Disney World crowd and those with kids, this is also an important addition you may want to make in your home. 67% of renters listed a washer and dryer as the determining factor in deciding to take the plunge on a vacation rental booking.
Regardless of your Champions Gate listing type, it never hurts to offer a few child and pet-friendly amenities in your vacation property. This not only benefits guests who may be looking to consolidate the items they pack on their flight or road trip, but it also shows that you have thought ahead to their needs.
These items could include:
- Baby items like a crib or high chair
- Cleaning supplies
- First aid kit
- Furniture covers for pets
- Outdoor hose for pets
- Food and water bowls
Beyond these categories, guests love a kitchen stocked with basic cooking oils and spices, as well as coffee supplies. In each bathroom, it might be helpful to include toiletries like shampoo, soap, and body lotion. If you aren’t able to do this yourself, a property management company like Roseus Vacations will provide hotel-quality amenities in your rental property before each guest stay.
In case you’re wondering whether or not internet is important in your rental, 96% of guests voted “yes” as to whether or not wireless internet was essential during their rental home stay. Your guests may need to work remotely and check email, and families with children might want to use a streaming service to watch movies and TV shows.
Tasks as simple as looking up Champions Gate dining menus and retail options, and booking daily activity tickets require the use of the internet. By offering in-home wi-fi, guests have peace of mind knowing they will be able to work, operate entertainment, and finalize travel details as needed during their stay.
