Guests ex­pect good-qual­ity mat­tresses and bed­ding, good out­door fa­cil­i­ties with an ad­e­quate bar­be­cue and plenty of crock­ery, cut­lery and kitchen es­sen­tials. If you’re equip­ping on a bud­get, make these your pri­or­i­ties. Peo­ple also ap­pre­ci­ate thought­ful fin­ish­ing touches such as flow­ers in the room and lo­cal wine in the fridge. Make sure what’s on of­fer is ap­pro­pri­ate for the needs of your mar­ket. For in­stance, cou­ples tend to like pri­vacy, while fam­i­lies need en­ter­tain­ment and a space that can be flex­i­ble to their needs. When plan­ning rooms, think ho­tel style and in­tro­duce colour and per­son­al­ity with pic­tures and fab­rics, but avoid clut­ter­ing rooms with ex­ces­sive or­na­ments and fur­ni­ture. Guests will ap­pre­ci­ate the feel of a beau­ti­ful home for their hol­i­day and they want to feel it’s their home for a week or two, so avoid too many per­sonal clues such as fam­ily pho­tos.
