Feel The Pride Beyond money there is a joy associated with sharing your beloved vacation home with others. Many owners find watching guests fall in love with their property extremely rewarding. In fact, many renters insist on the same properties time after time.
Atithi Devo Bhavah The famous Hindu scripture "atithidevah" literally means "Our Guest Is God". It signifies an age old tradition associated with the Host-Guest relationship. The premise of Guests is that you treat them as your family. They trust you, and you trust them. That's the reason it works.
Atithi Devo Bhavah This relates to you since as Hosts you welcome Guests to your homes everyday. And that puts you in the business of Hospitality. It's about welcoming people with an open heart. To make someone feel special, that is immense, the joy cannot be explained.
Atithi Devo Bhavah Being a host is a responsibility. So please keep these tips in mind as you prepare for your guest.
Atithi Devo Bhavah Ensure that you can commit before accepting a reservation. Consider your guest's feelings (and plans) before you cancel their accommodations. Timing is everything. If you must cancel, inform us about it as soon as possible. Tell guests what to expect when under your roof, let them know if they're required to remove their shoes before they step in, take out the trash, or jump on your trampoline. Guests may want to invite visitors over. If you have regulations about who enters your home and how long they can stay, share them in your House Rules. Commitment
Atithi Devo Bhavah Little amenities are a big deal when traveling. They offer guests comfort in unfamiliar places and save the day when someone has forgotten something. Guests expect the basics. Have clean towels and bed sheets, soap, toilet paper, and all of the amenities you outlined in your listing's description on hand. Consider keeping maybe a hand-wash, hairdryer, and an iron on hand. Leave an umbrella by the door in case the skies are grey. Guests love helpful maps, an adapter that's available to borrow, a sunscreen or bug spray if the elements call for it. Amenities
Atithi Devo Bhavah Give guests a reason to swoon from the moment they arrive. Ensure your property and common areas are cleaned pre-arrival. This includes changing linens and cleaning surfaces in the bathroom and kitchen. Pay attention to the nitty-gritty. Clean surfaces, wipe mirrors, empty wastebaskets, sanitize toilets, and keep your space dust- free. Showcase your space at its best. Charge a cleaning fee or hire a professional cleaning service to help keep your space spotless. Organize your space so guests can store their things. Cleanliness
Atithi Devo Bhavah Make sure that the property is available to guests at the predetermined check-in time. Share your list of favorite places or activities in the neighborhood. During reservations, assign someone to remedy any issues that may arise. It’s helpful to have a list of emergency phone numbers handy. Give them the digits for your local doctor. Problem solvers are super heroes! Guests who stayed with hosts who gracefully resolved an issue reported great experiences more frequently than those who never had an issue at all. Support
