5 Gifts to Give to Your Vacation Rental

Gifts for your vacation rental

In a world full of many options, it can be difficult and time consuming trying to select the perfect gift. Treat yourself, your business, and loved ones this season with gifts that are actually helpful (and cool)! CBIZ Vacation Rental Insurance has you covered.

1. Virtual Assistant

An excellent gift for your vacation rental home is a virtual assistant. Not only is it functional, it will be a wow factor to your guests. With devices like Alexa or Google Home, your guests have their own personal concierge. Not to mention, it doubles as a speaker to enhance the experience at your property. It could even be used as an additional resource for your welcome booklet.

Virtual assistants also have smart lightbulbs, smart thermostats, and smart plugs that you can purchase to go with it. These accessories make it extremely easy to control the settings of your short-term rental property while it is vacant.

2. A Membership

Learn more about your business and treat yourself to a new membership. Learn more and connect with others in your profession, town, or listing website. Interact with people who have similar interests. Sharing your passion will help you grow your business and connect you to resources you may not have known about. Benefit from webinars, training courses, and exclusive discounts. 

We love VRMA and the VRU memberships to continue learning about the industry. However, signing up for a store-warehouse membership like Costco or Sam’s Club is just as great. These can be extremely helpful when stocking your vacation rental for guests.

3. Robot Vacuum

Cleaning is never a small task. Spend less time vacuuming and more time focusing on sanitizing other areas in your property. Robot vacuums can clean hard-to reach spaces and do not get stuck on rugs or cables. Most “robo” vacuums come with an app that allows you to schedule its cleaning times and review its cleaning pattern.

4. Smart Locks

A great way to save time, money, and the worry of your guests losing a key or even making a duplicate of one, is using a smart lock. When you make the switch to a keyless entryway or fob, you are able to create temporary access codes for your guests. These access codes can be sent through text or found in your entry email, making it so you don’t have to drop off a key or leave it in a lockbox. During these times, a touch-free and contactless interaction is recommended, and smart locks can help enable that. This is a wonderful gift for any vacation rental property owner.

5. Insurance

Give the gift of insurance this season to offer peace of mind for your vacation rental business. As safe as your practices are and despite how prepared you may be, it’s always best to have the correct policy on your side just in case something does happen. Insurance is a gift that keeps giving long past the holidays.
