From North Topsail to Wrightsville Beach to Southport and Ocean Isle, the Carolina Coast is a top vacation destination. And while some tourist destinations feature an endless selection of hotels, the Carolina coast is blooming with beautiful vacation homes and condos. If you own a vacation rental, you know how competitive it is to keep your place booked for the entire summer season. But, you don’t have to stress, with a few strategic vacation rental updates, your property will be more attractive, command higher rates, and you’ll maximize your occupancy rate in a flash.
Check out these top, cost-effective renovations to step up you Carolina Coast vacation rental game.
Update the Kitchen
Giving your vacation rental a kitchen facelift doesn’t have to be expensive. Painting cupboards, updating hardware, and new wall paint can bring a dated kitchen up to par. If it is in your budget, new granite countertops will give it the final touch of a luxurious retreat that will have your guest raving in their reviews.
Create a Comfortable Resting Place
Your guests need a comfortable bed. So spend your bedroom renovation money on good mattresses. The decor should be simple with cool neutral colors and just a few decorative items. Keep it simple and uncluttered so your guests can truly escape the worries and chaos of their daily life at home.
Build the Ultimate Outdoor Retreat
Vacation home renters are ready to have a good time. Make sure your outdoor living spaces such as decks and patio are outfitted with proper lighting so they can enjoy the space even after the sunset. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington, we offer gorgeous, cost-effective deck and patio lighting that comes with a lifetime warranty. But for vacation rentals, we also recommend overhead market lighting to create a true party space for your guests.
Make Getting in a Breeze
Update your vacation rental with a coded front lock. Rather than have your guests fumbling around in the night with an old lockbox or looking for a key hidden under a pot, provide them with a code for the integrated front door lock. This makes entering the property easy from the outset and avoids any potential issues with lost keys, locked in keys, or not enough keys for the number of guests.
Don’t forget the lighting. If your guests have traveled from afar, they may not arrive until after dark. Add custom outdoor lighting to your front yard, parking area, and entryway to create a warm and secure welcome to your guest each and every time.
