Running an Airbnb isn’t just about hosting, it’s about crafting a memorable experience that makes guests hit that “book now” button faster than you can say "5-star review." So, how can you make your property more appealing and profitable? Our Tangy Management experts have got you covered with these 10 must-have items.
1.) Smart Thermostat
Why? Comfort meets convenience. Guests can easily control the temperature, and you can manage it remotely to save energy costs when the property is vacant. It's a win-win!
2.) High-Speed WiFi
In the era of remote work and endless streaming, offering high-speed WiFi isn’t optional; it’s a necessity. And you can bet that a good WiFi connection can bump your ratings up.
Hotels offer them, so why shouldn’t you? Crisp, luxurious bedding sets can make a world of difference in a guest's experience, and they're more likely to leave positive reviews.
4.) Hot Tub or Jacuzzi
Nothing says luxury quite like a hot tub or jacuzzi. It could be the defining feature that sets your Airbnb apart and nudges potential guests to choose your property over others.
5.) Local Snack Basket
Let guests taste the local flavor. A basket filled with local snacks not only delights the taste buds but also adds a personal touch.
6.) Noise-Cancelling Headphones
Whether your property is in a bustling city or near a busy street, noise-cancelling headphones can ensure a peaceful night’s sleep, making your guests' stay more enjoyable.
The Little Things
7.) Charging Stations
In a world dependent on technology, guests will appreciate multiple charging stations for their myriad of gadgets. It's a small investment with big returns.
8.) Quality Cookware
For guests who prefer to dine in, high-quality cookware can elevate their dining experience, making them more likely to return and recommend your property.
9.) Smart Locks
Guests love the ease of self-check-in and added security, while hosts appreciate the convenience and efficiency of remote access management.
The Game Changer
10.) Personal Concierge App
By providing guests with a digital concierge via an app, you can offer personalized recommendations for local attractions, restaurants, and events. It's a small detail that can yield big profits.
Incorporate these 10 must-have items into your property, and you’re not just offering a place to stay; you’re offering an unforgettable experience that will keep guests coming back. As a pro tip: always remember that the key to a successful Airbnb is to walk a mile in your guests’ shoes, and then offer them a virtual tour to make their stay as smooth as possible.
