Make Repairs A Priority

Since you aren’t at your vacation home all year, it’s easy to forget about repair projects and needed maintenance that you may have put off. Before it gets into vacation season, take a close look around your vacation home and make a list of all the repairs that must be fixed. Simple repairs include anything from straightening crooked cabinets to repairing plumbing issues. Next, prioritize the repairs that have to be completed before your guests arrive.

Deep Clean Your Property

Even if you gave your property a once-over before closing up for the season. It is important to make sure that your home is as clean as possible to start out the season well and to wow your guests. Clean the carpets, dust, vacuum the furniture, and consider scrubbing in those nooks and crannies where dust and other debris accumulates.

Restock Staples and Sundries

As you look into into the possible repairs that you may need, also take stock of your vacation home’s staples such as toilet paper, paper towels, hand soap, dish soap, and other amenity items. Also think about the sundries that you would like to leave your guests. Sundries include all those little miniature items that hotels leave for their guests such as shampoo and conditioner bottles. It may also be a nice thought to leave your guests some snacks when they first arrive. Consider what would make your guests in particular feel at home in their temporary home away from home.

Check on Security

It’s also incredibly important to check the security of your vacation home not only for your own security and peace of mind, but also for your guests. Check the doors, windows, and other points of possible entry to make sure the locks are working, and not just working, but will be the most effective means for security. As you’re examining your locks, think about if it is time for an upgrade. There are many efficient means to not only keep your vacation home safe, but to add convenience and peace of mind to your life. Switching to a keyless entry and possibly a smart system makes it easy for patrons to check in and check out, and gives you the opportunity to go above and beyond, by turning on lights and the HVAC system before your guests are expected.
