How to Keep Your Vacation Rental Property Booked This Year!

Are you looking for ways to keep your Hilton Head vacation rental property booked regularly?

There are many things that go into making sure your vacation home is occupied. You need to make sure it’s clean, well-maintained, and always up-to-date with new amenities. At The Vacation Company, we help our homeowners with top-of-the-line cleaning services, including our signature “Above & Beyond” cleaning and maintenance program. With this program, our owners’ homes are treated twice a year in the fall and spring to make sure their home stands out from other island properties.

Additionally, another thing you need to do to improve reservation rates is to keep your home updated and with state-of-the-art features. For example, owners of private homes in our vacation management program can opt-in to our Electric Vehicle Charger initiative. We already have Charging Stations at several private Hilton Head Island homes and at our new offices, and we will continue to equip more vacation homes with EV chargers on Hilton Head Island!

But there’s one thing that can help you get more bookings than anything else: great reviews! People want to stay at vacation homes that have been reviewed by other guests who had an outstanding experience. This means staying on top of cleaning and maintenance schedules so everything runs smoothly when guests arrive, as well as being proactive about asking for feedback after they leave. It may be time-consuming and difficult to manage, but it will pay off when people see how much others love staying at your Hilton Head vacation home! For homeowners in our program, we deploy automated surveys and testimonial requests after guest departure. We have actually utilized these reviews and testimonials as marketing materials, which has helped guests book the same home year over year, as well as generated reservations from new prospective guests!

If you follow these tips, your vacation rental property will be ready to be booked for 2022! If you prefer to maximize your vacation rental income by having 24/7 hands-on property care, robust marketing practices, resort-style amenities, and attention to every guest’s needs, contact us today
