Going Dutch has a few things we wish all our vacation rental owners knew!
1 – Please provide enough dishes to match the dining seating! If we are renting a big house, we brought a lot of people, and they all like to eat.
2 – We love to hear from people who know the area…leave us lists of local things to do and places of interest.
3 – PLEASE provide a garbage can or dumpster that is adequate for the size of the rental – overflowing garbage is gross!
4 – If you have wildlife in the area of your rental, make the trash cans wildlife resistant. Picking up trash strewn all over the yard of the rental after a raccoon chewed through the plastic lid is not what we had in mind for our vacation!
5 – A well-stocked kitchen is a MUST…a blender, crockpot, corkscrew, and coffee maker are all necessities.
6 – Set it up like YOU would like to vacation there! Little things go a long way to making it nice.
7 – Please provide toilet paper! Add a few bucks to the rental price if you have to…but kids need to go after a long car ride.
8 – Don’t forget the hand soap near all faucets…all of your renters will need this!
9 – We’re on vacation… make it easy for us! If you’re a great rental owner, we’ll happily provide you with a great review when we leave.
10 – Thank you for sharing your great home with us! We love having great places available for our vacations together!
