Summer is prime time to rent out your vacation home. Families gather for reunions, old friends meet up, and couples find some one on one time during June, July, and August. You can make your vacation rental appeal to all of these groups so that your rental stays booked all summer long.
The Great Outdoors
Unlike winter in Breckenridge, guests flock to the mountains in summer for the variety of activities that can partake in outside and in nature. Hiking, cycling, water sports, and simply sitting in the woods and having a picnic are all reasons guests love to come to Breckenridge in the summer. No matter if the trail or stream is out your back door or way down the road, highlighting how a guest can easily access the great outdoors from your property will catch their interest and give them a reason to book your property. Supply directions, maps, and details to make their decision easy, and their vacation wonderful.
Outdoor spaces are key for summer rentals. Vacationers love to use outdoor seating, grills, hot tubs, hammocks, and more. It doesn’t take much to set up an inviting outdoor space. Hang a swing on your front porch. Provide a fire pit and some Adirondack chairs. Put a propane grill on your patio along with a table and chairs. If you don’t have any outdoor spaces available, point out your proximity to local parks, trails, or other activities. Remember to consider fire danger and take appropriate precautions. If there is a fire ban and you have a fire pit or charcoal grill remind your guests that they are not allowed to use them. Do not provide firewood or charcoal during a fire ban. Make sure you have any burn permits easily accessible so that your guests know all of the rules and regulations.
Highlight Family Spaces
Many people use vacation rentals instead of hotels because they are traveling with a group of people. Show off any bunk spaces or rooms with multiple beds. Families prefer homes that have spaces for older children to stay together, or rooms large enough for families with young children to sleep together. Be sure to point out any amenities like pool tables, ping-pong tables, or even yard games and fishing equipment.
Many summertime vacationers look forward to taking their favorite furry friends with them on their adventures. Hiking with dogs is an especially loved pastime. Consider making your property pet friendly. Many visitors would gladly pay a fee instead of having to pay for a kennel to board their pet.
These simple steps will help your property stand out as the ideal summer vacation home. Know the best things to do in your area during the summer and highlight them for your guests. Think about what a summer renter wants in a vacation home and do your best to provide as many of those amenities as possible. When you rent your home in the summer, you can get premium rates and enjoy the fruits of a high traffic season.
