Holiday house rentals- what features do you look for?

Answered 2 years ago

Building a house for holiday rentals Just wondering if You would consider a bath a necessity. There’s no mains water so I don’t want to put one in but my partner thinks it will deter families with small children from renting it. I’d be happy with a half bath built into the shower.

sounds like my house. It's huge but it would be too big for a holiday home. Maybe half the size would be better

We are staying at a holiday home right now with the above, except it was only 4 bedrooms (sleeps 9). Secure parking (garage) for 2 vehicles, plus dishwasher, washing machine & dryer. We having family join us for a couple days, then having some family time, then we have friends joining us for a couple days.

I would be more concerned with not having mains water than whether or not to have a bath or a shower.

I imagine they will have tank water.

Do you want to run out of water while on holiday?

Presumably someone booking the place won't know there is no mains water.

Stayed at a beautiful place with a gorgeous bath, but when we got there we saw the sign saying that they can’t runs baths anymore because the rainfall just isn’t enough anymore as to when they built it(they’d removed taps and plug). I was disappointed as I guess I am someone to search for baths- but reading the sign I understood and we just had a shower. I wonder if this could be a future problem for you.

Was it advertised with the bath or were there photos of the bath in the advertising?

If so I would be putting on a Tandy about that regardless of the drought. It should be clear in the description

With little kids I always looked for a bath. Even a small one is better than none at all. Look for a small lipped one you can put a plug-in families with little kids prefer them most often.

In a holiday home a washer & dryer too are pluses

I think a half bath is ok. I probably look more for dishwasher more than anything as I hate washing dishes and if its a fishing destination somewhere to put our fish.

We have 2 DC, bath doesn't bother us. We adapt. A proper kitchen, washing machine & secure parking are deal breakers.

I look for a bath when we go stay somewhere. So much easier with my kids. I also look for more of a kitchen, not just a kettle/microwave. Full stove/oven. A nice outdoor area, hubby and I can have a drink outside when the kids go to bed etc. Must have heating/cooling. Those are just the things I look for. Hope they help!

A bath is a bonus but definitely not a necessity for me when travelling.

ANSWER

Yes he's right. Bath is so much easier with the kids.

Yep I look for a bath, travelling without the kids and travelling without them as well so I can relax in a bath myself.
