Manjimup Cherry Fest 2009Save your holiday rental guests time and preempt the activities they are seeking. Make the information readily available for them before and during their stay.

Don't limit yourself. Partner with local businesses that can add value. Find out if there is a day spa close by who will offer an in house or discount service for example. A local restaurant might offer a free bottle of wine for your guests or you could offer restaurant clientele 10% off accommodation. It works both ways.

Connect with your local community, chamber of commerce, Local Government Association, Regional Tourism Organisation, Visitor Centre. Add them to your database, subscribe to their communications. Keep informed and share information.

Think outside the box with your marketing and build up content on your holiday rental website to share with your guests.
