When you own a vacation home, you will always have a place to stay when you need to give yourself a much-needed break. However, without anyone living in your vacation home for a long time, it may be prone to natural wear and tear. For this reason, it is a smart choice to consider renting out your property. In this way, you can even earn a decent sum from your property while you are not using it.

Just keep in mind that renters now tend to be more selective of the property that will serve as their accommodation while they are vacationing. In this case, offering a luxurious stay will give you a competitive edge and even target a different market demographic.

This article delves into some of the ways on how you will be able to turn your vacation property into a luxury stay.

Implement Robust Security and Maintenance System

One of the primary ways on how you will be able to transform your rental property into a luxury stay is by implementing robust security and maintenance systems. For instance, you can install home security cameras to provide a sense of security to your guests.

In the same manner, you can also use a vacation home monitoring system to ensure that you are on top of what is happening to your vacation rental property in case there are no current renters. Some of the best ones integrate both smart home sensors, as well as traditional ones for optimum efficiency.

There is also the option for you to integrate some smarts into your vacation home such as leveraging smart speakers and displays that can instantly automate your vacation rental property. You can also implement a smart heating and cooling system to provide the ultimate comfort for your guests.

Leveraging smart lighting is another way of bringing an instant feel of luxury into your rental property. Smart home hubs are also a nice addition to any home and smart plugs will take things to another level as well. All these smart home integration ideas will not only make your guests feel comfortable, but they will surely be in awe too.

Focus on the Amenities You Can Provide

Another way to transform your vacation rental property into a luxury stay is by being keen on the amenities that you can provide. Remember that for luxury stays, you are focusing on a different caliber of travelers, which means that they expect more such as high-end amenities. This means that apart from providing the best furnishings, you need to be able to delight your guests by exceeding their expectations.

One of the ways for you to do this is by considering adding a hot tub or a fire pit in your property, in case there is none yet. Another luxurious amenity that you can add is a built-in bar or a sun deck. There is also the option for you to consider renovating the yard of your property to make space for a heated pool.

Hire the Right People

Luxury stays in a vacation rental property will not be complete without the help of people who will provide the best care for your guests. More often than not, a luxury stay means that your guests should no longer worry about anything else other than what they want to do for the day.

Thus, think about offering services such as laundry, housekeeping, a concierge, as well as maintenance. For this, the people that you hire should be well-trained and seasoned professionals in the services that they provide.

You can even level up your services with another notch by offering more such as a personal trainer in case your vacation home comes with a gym or a massage therapist in case your guests are interested.

If your vacation property comes with a bar, offering the services of a professional mixologist will surely lead to a luxury stay. On the other hand, if your property is near the beach, then offering the services of a personal surf instructor is also a good idea. Just make sure that in all the services you offer, you hire the right people for the job.

Having a vacation home that you can rent out when you don’t need to use it is one of the ways that can delay the wear and tear of your property, and even earn from it. However, with all the other landlords out in the market, you need to have a competitive edge and one way of doing so is by offering a luxury stay.

In this case, take inspiration from the ideas listed above and for sure, you will have your vacation home rented by highly qualified vacation tenants in no time.
