Are you setting up your holiday home for letting?

Preparing a holiday home for holiday letting can be a very time-consuming experience. It's especially difficult if you don't live locally.

From coordinating deliveries to choosing items that might go out of stock. Something that initially sounded fun can become an overwhelming, frustrating and time-consuming task. 

You'll also need to consider what your guests need and how to make it the best holiday experience possible. We’ve moved on from the days of people cramming bunk beds into every room to achieve maximum occupancy in their holiday let. 

The expectations of modern guests are much higher than they used to be.
