During your Stay

  • Take pictures on your arrival. Record the overall condition of the rental property immediately upon arrival. Get in touch with the rental manager right away to report your observations. This may protect against disagreements during check out.
  • Ask questions. You could need guidance for a fireplace, Television set or spa. Get in touch with your home manager. They are there to help. A brief phone call eliminates many complications.
  • Don't forget to be a good next-door neighbor. Residents will likely be as friendly to you as you are considerate of them. Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking regulations can make a visit a little more enjoyable.
  • Ask a local. Local people can often point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to order the best pizza, have a great date night, or the best areas for wildlife?
  • Enjoy your stay! Make sure you protect the property owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the property locked up when you are away, just like you would in your own home.

When its Time to Leave

  • Tidy up a lttle bit. Despite the fact that you're spending money on a house cleaning fee, The rental home should really be in good shape. Kitchen sinks filled with pots and pans, surplus beach sand on the floor and sticky messes ought to be remedied before you leave.
  • Be sure to walk through the rental one last time and check for property damage. We advise walking through with the rental manager whenever possible (often this isn't possible).. If the property owner is not available, ensure that you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you have a blast? Many vacation rental management companies and vacation rental websites make it easy for travellers to provide reviews. If your vacation rental and/or property manager was top notch, they will likely appreciate your recommendations. If something was wrong and they failed to fix it in a practical manner, or when the rental wasn't as described, you should note that in your critique.

Iterate

Hold a meeting with the members of your group. Does everyone want to return next year? Maybe everything was wonderful and you are all set to re-book the same rental for your next vacation. Maybe the property wasn't perfect, and you will better recognize how to improve your search for the next trip.
