5 Things to Make your Vacation Rental Stand out from the Crowd

There are so many options for choosing a vacation rental. Between hotels, hostels and the myriad of AirBnBs – all that compete for loyal vacationers – how do you stand out in a crowd? Luckily in our years of experience, we have learned a few things that will help your vacation rental shine and be noticed. Here five things that can set you apart from other rental properties.

1) Unique Amenities

Hot tubs are always desirable, but many vacation rentals have them. There are other amenities that renters enjoy that can be even easier than hot tubs. Think about local activities and equipment that might help your renters enjoy their destination. Kayaks, bikes, snowshoes, sleds, and fishing gear are a few examples of things that might be fun for a renter to use.

2) Kid Friendly

Many families prefer vacation rentals to hotels because they can put young children to sleep and still stay awake, or they can have separate spaces for kids and adults. Lower-level game rooms are a big draw for families with teens. Bunk rooms for multiple kids to sleep together are also an amenity that families value. If you really want to appeal to families, you may also want to consider some outdoor play equipment, or toys and games to play with indoors.

3) Outdoor Spaces

An inviting outdoor space can attract nature lovers. Hammocks, cozy fire pits with chairs, grills, Adirondack chairs, and porch swings can create an ideal place to relax and enjoy the outdoors.

4) Easy, Flexible Check-in/out

Make check-in and check-out as smooth and easy as possible. If your renter has special requests, such as an early arrival or late departure, do your best to accommodate them. Many vacation rentals have strict rules about this due to cleaning needs and quick turnover. When you are able to be more flexible, it will help you stand out as unique. People with special check-in and check-out requirements will be more likely to book your property.

5) Local Connections

People love to experience the local Breckenridge scene when they are on vacation. They like to feel that they have the inside scoop on their beloved vacation spot. Make a book with your “best of Breck” tips that include restaurants, bars, boutiques, and other off the beaten path places. If you know of any local parties or events that may not be widely advertised, be sure to invite your guests. These kinds of connections are what encourage renters to return year after year.

Stand Out

A cozy, inviting home is always the goal for a vacation rental in Breckenridge. What will make you stand out above the crowd is helping your renter have a distinct experience. Consider your location and the amenities that will help your renters connect with their destination. Whether it is a local party, sporting equipment, a warm fire pit with all the makings for s’mores, or a headache free check out, giving your renter the ideal experience will make them want to return and tell their friends about what a great time they had.
