Having little tecchy extras can really boost your listing on Airbnb. Generally guests are more likely to choose an Airbnb with nifty gadgets they can use as this can enhance their overall experience and are therefore more likely to write a better review/ stay again!
Here are a few examples that can be bought relatively inexpensively to improve your listing:
Having Netflix on your TV – you could leave yourself logged in so guests can access Netflix if they don’t have their own account. If you do this it’s best to leave instructions for guests not to sign out so you don’t have to give out your account details for future guests. Alternatively keep yourself logged out just so only guests with a Netflix account can access. However, whatever access you allow should be clearly stated on your listing.
1. A coffee machine or even a cafetiere (as it’s easier to clean) can really make a guest happy! Most guests expect some sort of coffee making device nowadays!
2. We are living in a smoothie and juice age! A smoothie/juice maker is a hit with guests who feel like they might need a bit of a health kick! There are now so many cheaper options out there from as little as £20.
3. It’s been a fabulous summer! While we all feel guilty for complaining about the heat, if it’s impossible to sleep it can really ruin your stay somewhere. A decent fan is definitely a worthwhile investment to avoid nergative reviews saying ‘it was too hot to sleep’.
4. Similarly, even if you have central heating in your Airbnb, a portable heater is still valuable for guests that struggle to keep warm during Winter.
5. Speakers are a great addition to an Airbnb. They don’t have to be fancy – a portable speaker or radio that has Bluetooth or an aux cable means that people can play their own music, which is obviously going to improve their stay!
6. Lastly, lighting is easily overlooked but being able to control the lighting in an Airbnb can really add to your Airbnb’s ambiance – so invest in a few lamps, they don’t have to be expensive and they can also enhance your listing’s photographs!
If more people are choosing your Airbnb over others because of you have upped your technology game then these gadgets are definitely worthwhile investments!
