Tips For Villa Owners
For you, after taking the time to purchase your own villa in Florida, you will know the area well, be comfortable there and feel like it is a second home. This may not be the same for your guests. This may be your guests first ever time in Central Florida, or even first ever trip abroad.
We have prepared a list of suggestions for you to help your guests feel more comfortable with their upcoming trip to the Sunshine State and, in particular, in booking a villa with you.
Provide recommendations early to allow guests to plan their trip.
Filling in your Guidebook on WP Rentals is a great way to compile your recommendations, and it makes it easy to grow and repurpose for future guests.
Personality is appreciated—recommend things you actually do yourself and places you like to go. A concierge might provide recommendations based on what they think an average tourist might like, but your tips can be more personalized.
Use the tips above and you’re bound to get great reviews and feedback like this:
“Our host’s tips about cheap food and other things to see nearby were right on. We’ll definitely be back again!”
“I am pretty widely traveled and fairly independent with it, meaning normally I like to figure things out myself, but there is no question: our host added great value to my experience.”
“The cheat sheet guide to the neighborhood our host sent to us in advance of our stay was great and we tried out a few of the recommendations on the list.”
As a trip approaches, anxiety increases for guests. Where do I need to go? How do I get there? How will I get a key for the space? How do I plan what to do on my trip? Put your guest at ease by giving them all of the info they’ll need up front instead of making them wait until the last minute. This establishes trust right away and will most likely garner you a great review, and great reviews lead to bookings.
