Owning and running an Airbnb rental – or any other vacation home advertised on one of the many vacation property websites – requires a lot more than just slapping up a few photos online and calling it a day.

In addition to pricing the place right and securing your own belongings (if you’re also using the place for your own purposes), you’ll want to set the stage for your guests so they leave you rave reviews and come back for more.

Investing a little effort and time into improving or updating your vacation rental space can help your guests feel more at home and more satisfied with their stay. Here are some improvements you might want to make to your vacation home to boost bookings and reviews.

Luxurious Master Bedroom

While you don’t necessarily have to spend the big bucks in renovations, simple touches can really help create a more luxurious feel to your master bedroom. The idea behind staging a vacation home is to make it feel as though your guests have simply taken their home along with them on their travels.

Make sure your master bedroom suite is equipped with high-quality bedding and linens, fluffy pillows, lovely window treatments, cozy table lamps and end tables, and friendly artwork on the walls. And don’t forget to include appropriate lighting – preferably with dimmer switches.

Spa-Like Bathroom

If the bathroom in your vacation rental could use a little updating, consider making affordable improvements, such as replacing the vanity or the counter, adding a new mirror over the vanity, or changing the shower curtain.

If necessary, consider replacing the tub or toilet with new ones to make the bathroom cleaner and more modern.

And don’t forget to equip this space with all the items they need, including fresh towels, soaps and shampoos, candles, bubble bath and bath bombs, and even complimentary robes.

Functional Kitchen

The kitchen is arguably the most important space in a home, so you’ll want to make sure that yours is impressive. Stock your kitchen with all the dinnerware, cutlery, and cookware possible. Make sure all cabinets and drawers are clean and leave out a fresh plant or bouquet of flowers on the dining table.

If your kitchen could use an overhaul, spend your money wisely by taking on projects like replacing the counters, refacing the cabinet doors, or simply replacing the knobs and handles.
