LAS (5)

As leaders in the vacation rental market, Open Air Homes understands what truly resonates with guests. While trends may come and go, some amenities consistently rank as top priorities for travelers. Here are the five essential features every vacation rental should offer, with an honorable mention that shouldn’t be overlooked.

1. Swimming Pools: A Splash of Luxury

Pools are synonymous with leisure and luxury, and they remain a highly desired feature in vacation rentals. Whether it’s for a refreshing morning swim or a relaxing evening dip, pools significantly enhance the allure of a property.

2. Welcoming Pets: A Home for Every Member of the Family

In the modern travel era, pets are often considered part of the family. Accommodations that welcome furry friends not only cater to a broader audience but also tend to enjoy higher booking rates. Simple additions like pet beds, bowls, and toys can make a big difference.

3. Relaxation Redefined: The Appeal of Hot Tubs

A hot tub is a powerful magnet for guests seeking relaxation and comfort. They provide an exclusive spa-like experience, adding significant value to your property without the space and maintenance requirements of a pool.

4. High-Speed Internet: Stay Connected

In our digital age, a reliable and speedy internet connection is non-negotiable. Whether guests are remote workers, streaming enthusiasts, or simply need to stay connected, WiFi is a fundamental necessity in any vacation rental.

5. Climate Control: The Comfort of Central Air Conditioning

Guest comfort is paramount, and central air conditioning plays a crucial role in ensuring a pleasant stay, especially in warmer climates. It’s an investment that speaks volumes about your commitment to guest comfort.


Honorable Mention: Laundry Facilities

While not as glamorous as other amenities, the convenience of in-house laundry facilities is a significant draw for guests, particularly for longer stays or those traveling with children. This practical addition is a thoughtful gesture that guests greatly appreciate.


Incorporating these top amenities can transform a simple vacation rental into an inviting and sought-after retreat. At Open Air Homes, we prioritize these features to ensure our properties meet and exceed guest expectations. By focusing on what guests value most, we create memorable stays that keep them returning year after year. Ready to make your rental stand out? Let Open Air Homes be your guide.
