How to Prepare Your Short-Term Rental for New Year’s Eve

Leer en español

The shimmering lights, joyous gatherings, and the countdown to midnight - New Year’s Eve is not just another evening, it’s a global celebration of hope and joy. 

As a short-term rental owner, you have a unique opportunity to be a part of your guests' festive experiences. Preparing your property for this special night can make all the difference in ensuring your guests have a memorable stay and start their new year off right.

Safety First

Before the glitter and champagne, safety comes first. Check that all smoke detectors are working, the first-aid kit is stocked, and emergency exits are clearly marked and unobstructed. This attention to detail not only ensures guest safety but also demonstrates your care as a host.

Also, clear house rules are essential, especially on a night known for celebrations. Set expectations about noise levels, the number of guests allowed, and any specific guidelines for partying. Communicate these rules clearly in your listing and within your property to avoid any misunderstandings.

Create a Festive Atmosphere

A few tasteful decorations can set the right mood. Think twinkling lights, elegant table settings, and some subtle festive touches that add to the celebratory feel without overwhelming the space.

The right lighting can transform your rental into a cozy haven. Soft, warm lights create an inviting ambiance, perfect for guests to relax and celebrate the coming year.

Comfort is Key

Comfortable bedding, extra blankets for chilly evenings, and amenities like high-speed Wi-Fi and a selection of movies or games can make your guests' stay enjoyable and convenient.

A well-stocked kitchen is a welcome sight for guests. Basic essentials, some festive snacks, and a small welcome gift like a bottle of champagne or gourmet chocolates can add a personal touch that guests will remember.

Local Insights for a Memorable Evening

A custom guidebook with information on local New Year’s Eve events, best spots for fireworks, and recommended restaurants adds significant value to your guests' experience.

Also, provide information on local transportation options, including taxi services and public transport schedules for New Year's Eve, ensuring your guests can navigate the celebrations safely and conveniently.

Post-Celebration Cleanliness and Care 

Have a plan in place for cleaning up post-celebration. Stock extra trash bags and cleaning supplies to manage any additional mess.

A thoughtful “recovery kit” with bottled water, light snacks, and headache relievers can be a considerate gesture for your guests the morning after.

Smooth Experience from Start to Finish With a Good Communication

Ensure a hassle-free check-in and check-out processes. A digital guide with all necessary information sent in advance can help guests feel prepared and welcomed.

Being available to promptly answer any queries during your guests' stay shows your commitment to their experience and can help quickly resolve any unforeseen issues.
