Outdoor Amenities to Attract Vacationers

While our climate provides for a longer vacation rental season than most areas, remember to offer the best amenities. Here are our top 5 outdoor amenities to increase your rental season and allow the guest to rest, relax and reconnect with family and friends:

Swimming Pool

Having a pool can extend your rental season by as much as 3-4 months, depending on weather and adds value to your property long-term. Be creative with size and shape as space allows. This will make your home feel more resort like. Having a pool is an investment worth considering.

Space for Kids

Having a space such as a swing set, toys, game area, corn hole and volleyball will help when parents are searching for things for their kids to do, when they just want to relax.

Space for Pets

More and more travelers are bringing their pets on vacation, so having a small, safe fenced area for animals with a little shade can go a long way. Maybe a dog run even. This shows you care and that your home is truly pet friendly.


Having a private, spacious outdoor area for a BBQ with family and friends, these are memories that will last a lifetime. Part of the reason people choose to stay at a vacation rental verse a hotel is for the dining options.

Hot Tub

Great option for owners who do not have the space for a swimming pool. Investing in a hot tub can draw more renters especially during the cooler rental season. But don’t be surprised guests also love a hot tub during the summer months.
