Young families

If you own a short-term rental business and want to attract young families, you may face unique challenges compared to other guest categories. Young families typically want a safe, cozy environment that provides comfort and convenience for them and their children. However, as a rental owner, you may struggle to balance providing amenities that are desirable for adults, yet meet the needs of smaller children as well. In this article, we’ll explore strategies for how you can make your rental more attractive to young families and set yourself up for success in this growing market.

1. Location

Short term rentals for families need to be close to key attractions such as tourist activities, family-friendly restaurants and shopping areas to attract families looking for the ultimate holiday experience.

2. Size

The short term rental property should be spacious enough to accommodate a large family and ideally should have more than one bedroom so that parents can have some privacy.

3. Comfort

The short term rental property should be outfitted with comfortable furniture and beds as well as providing all the necessary amenities that one would need while on vacation, such as air-conditioning, washing machine and dryer facilities, kitchen appliances and other home comforts like extra blankets and cleaning supplies.

4. Cleanliness

Hygiene is essential for any rental property and the property should be regularly cleaned, inspected and maintained to a high standard to ensure the health and wellbeing of all guests.

5. Kid friendly amenities

Many kids love having access to a swimming pool and other recreational activities such as table tennis, mini golf, etc. It is also nice for kids to have amenities such as a kids play room, fully equipped kitchen, and comfortable living space. The addition of streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu can also be very attractive to kids and provide entertainment options.
