Top tips to easily improve your Airbnb property
Fire up the BBQ and get some outdoor games
A little goes a long way. Leave the BBQ out with charcoal to let guests enjoy the warm weather and you will reap the rewards on your reviews. Summer is a chance to relax, unwind and spend time with friends and by providing the tools for your guests to have fun, you’re adding more value to their trip. You can pick up BBQ’s from most DIY shops and supermarkets. Here’s one of our favourites…
Upgrade your heating system
Save money and energy. Before you know it, summer will be over so it’s the perfect time to upgrade your heating system avoiding any complaints during the upcoming colder months. Upgrading to a smart heating control like Wiser will enable you to have remote access to your heating via the Wiser Heat app. With Wiser, guests can change the temperature by boosting it for a set time-period in your property. Never again, will you arrive back to an empty property to find out the heating has been on for the last five days. Easy to install from app to thermostat Wiser is an altogether better, smarter, easier way to control the heating in your Airbnb property from anywhere in the world. You can buy Wiser directly on Amazon.
Refresh and clean
At the beginning of the season give your property a deep clean to rid of dust and set expectations for cleanliness high. Remember, as an Airbnb host you’re competing with luxury and boutique hotels. Placing reed diffusers in rooms where you will be hosting guests creates a pleasant welcome. First impressions count.
Update your arrival pack
Having a guest welcome pack which includes some home essentials and outlines the rules of the property. Inside this pack you can add as little or as much information as you like. We think the more information you add the better. It’s a good idea to double check your pack every time you add something new such as new smart heating controls, TV or washing machine.
Peace of mind with smart plugs
Smart plugs are a clever way to prevent theft and give you peace of mind when leaving your property for long periods of time. Wiser Plugs allow you to schedule your lights to come on and off when nobody is in, giving the illusion that somebody is home. You can also use the Wiser Plug to switch off electrical appliances such as Irons and TV’s. In larger properties the Wiser Plug also acts as a range extender for the Wiser heating system.
