Top Vacation Rental Amenities in 2022


Vacation rental competition is fierce, especially in Fort Lauderdale. With people flocking to S.E Florida, the sunshine state, and opting to stay away from hotels, it’s so important that your rental property has those small but very important touches. A positive overall guest experience is your bread and butter and can generate incredible repeat business. A bad review, on the other hand, can be extremely damaging, so ensuring your home is well-equipped is essential to the success of rental.

When setting up the holiday home, it’s important that you focus on the conveniences and comforts of home that guests search for when booking a property.  Tourists prefer to travel light, bringing only the essentials, so it's up to the landlord to anticipate their requests.
