• Is Simplicity the Key to Adding Value and Increasing Occupancy at your Vacation Rental?

    Is simplicity the key to adding value and increasing occupancy? We certainly think so! Our recently purchased condo in Kauai was renting for $125 per night in its before condition with 50% annual occupancy and after implementing a few small changes is now renting between $165 to $215 per night (depending on season) with a 89% occupancy rate. These small changes more than paid for themselves since we have seen a $25,000 increase in revenue in year one.

    We believe in keeping it simple and clean!  What did we do to transform this lovely home?  

    • Created a fresh open atmosphere by painting the entire property
    • Reupholstered the existing living room couch
    • All new bed and bathroom linens in white from The Distinguished Guest
    • Added simple pillows and throw blankets to all bedding to add an element of style
    • New ambient lighting with lamps in each bedroom
    • Replaced the plastic window coverings with flowing linen sheers
    • Power washed all of the tile in the home 
    • Professionally cleaned the carpets
    • Decluttered the space to create a more open inviting space
    • Hired a photographer to take professional photographs
