Everyone loves a good vacation and a great destination, but where you stay matters. It can mean the difference between an okay vacation and a GREAT one. As more people opt into renting homes, rooms or apartments for their vacation, it’s clear that people just love that touch of home even on a vacation.
We love Rhode Island and summer just isn’t summer without being there. The beaches, the history, being on the water…and the sunsets, I love them.
I love this little cottage and the quaint, peaceful ambiance it brings me.
Whether you have your own place to get away to and you are entertaining guests there or renting it out OR just entertaining others at your home for the summer, these tips are the best at getting your home ready for summer guests.
Clean & Neat
Honestly, this is so easy when you think about it. Keep the clutter to a minimum and keep summer homes neat and clutter-free. Think about it, you’re looking to get away from it all, so less is more! If you are decorating a summer/vacation home, consider the destination and decorate to that standard (seaside = beachy vibe, mountains/lake = rustic, etc).
Welcome Book or Information
You want your guests (paying or just houseguests) to feel at home. Create a digital or printed guest book. Guests appreciate having the information they need at their fingertips (WIFI, best restaurants, where key items are located, how to use the TV, channel listing, etc.). It doesn’t need to be complicated, but it’s definitely appreciated!
The Little Things
Create a basket of possible forgotten essentials. You can stock up at the dollar store, but guests will always appreciate grabbing a toothbrush, toothpaste, razor, etc. if they’ve forgotten theirs. Place a basket in the bathroom or under the sink for guests to grab from.
Clean & Fresh Linens
From bedding to beach and bath towels, fresh linens are super important. And when they smell fresh, even better. When guests get into a fresh, crisply made bed they appreciate it!
The in-wash scent boosters help give a boost of snuggly freshness. I love how the fresh scent stays with the linens for our home that inspires and delights guests. It is that extra care that makes a BIG difference with guests.
The SuperFresh® Variants (like Original) also help to eliminate tough odors associated with pets (like our dog, Oliver!), outdoor odors and athletic ones, too! I love the snuggly freshness combined with odor eliminating technology!
You can find Snuggle® Scent Shakes™ at Target, where I stock up before the summer season. You can also buy it most retailers like Walmart, Kroger, Dollar General or Family Dollar.
How do you like to welcome guests? Do you have a summer home or place you visit regularly during the summer?
