Get your vacation rental all ready for music festival season by following these eight simple tips.

With music festival season about to begin, things are about to get extra busy for homeowners who own properties within close proximity to festival grounds, be it Indio, California for Coachella and Stage Coach, San Francisco for Outside Lands, or somewhere else. If you have a multi-bedroom home, chances are your renters will be a larger group—which can mean bigger bucks but more work. Here are eight ways to prep your home rental for festival season to ensure that your rental experience will be a success.


Get Your Vacation Rental Ready For Festival Season With These 8 Tips

1. Extra Bedding

Make sure to stock all of the bedrooms with quality, ample bedding. Don’t forget to include at least two sets of pillows per bed, mattress pads and high-quality sheets. Keep extra blankets in the linen closets and under the beds so that your renters won’t have to forage for bedding—especially if you get a couple of extra people crashing on the couch (which always happens during music festivals).

2. Deep Clean

Whenever you have new renters coming in, always hire a cleaning crew to give the house a completely detailed cleaning, which includes making the bathrooms spotless, washing all the linens, wiping down the fridge, and so forth. It’s important to clean your home every time renters leave, in order to make it super clean and ready for the next renters that are about to come in.


3. Offer Extras

Whenever renters stay at your home, chances are someone forgot to bring something—be it a toothbrush, shaving cream, or other everyday items. Make their stay comfortable and memorable by outfitting all of the bathrooms with toiletries so they don’t have to go to the store to buy them. These can range from extra razors and body lotion to shampoo and tampons. By taking care of your renters beforehand, they will be more likely to leave you a stellar review afterwards.


4. Pool/Jacuzzi Prep

If your house has a pool or Jacuzzi, make sure that it isn’t broken while renters are staying at your property. Pools and Jacuzzis are some of the main amenities that attract renters to home, especially during festival season, and nothing will damper their spirits during their stay than a broken Jacuzzi or a pool without heating. Ensure that the heaters are working, and add some pool toys to the backyard to make things more fun for your renters.


5. Include Entertainment

Despite the fact that your renters will most likely be spending most of their stay offsite at the festival, there will be periods of downtime where they are relaxing at the house and may look for some ways to entertain themselves. Leave some board games and a deck of cards around the living room which they can help themselves to when staying in your house.


6. Working Internet and Cable

Not having working Internet and cable can severely impact one’s stay at a property, whether it be using their phones to connect to Uber, checking emails, or looking up information about the surrounding area. You’ll want to make sure that both are up and running so that your renters won’t run into any issues while staying at your house.


7. Functional Lighting

Make sure all the lights inside and outside the home are working. Replace broken bulbs and aim for softer lighting. For yards, add inviting outdoor lighting so that guests feel safe and comfortable spending time outdoors.


8. Safety First

Even though it’s not your responsibility to monitor your guests’ every move while they are staying at your house, there are certain steps you can take to make them feel safe while they are on your property. Have a first-aid kit and earthquake kit available, leave a list of emergency numbers on the kitchen counter, and make sure a fire extinguisher is on-hand in case of a disaster.
