Vacationers want comfortable, temporary housing that's as good as their own. They want a bright, spacious haven where their family or a group of friends can be cozy and comfortable. The furniture should be clean and look quite elegant and stylish. Don't spend a lot of money on modern interior design and new furniture.

In order not to scare away subtenants with bare walls and empty rooms, you can use rentals or buy at sales, as long as these samples look presentable. However, it is better to provide your own furniture, maybe not the most beloved and expensive. Upholstered couches, chairs, sofas, armchairs, etc.. Keep it clean.

It is not bad to make covers from a fabric resistant to wear and tear, with a color that is not so noticeable against the possible contamination (not stark colors). White and neutral colors are undesirable because of their impracticality. These measures will help protect the original upholstery from damage and deterioration.

The walls should be freshly painted, or look like one. Wallpaper, of course, should not be dilapidated, damaged, darkened, wearing traces of dirt and pencil drawings and inscriptions. At the beginning and end of the season rooms need to be cleaned or washed.

It is extremely unpleasant, having rented a house, to meet there dirt and garbage. Guests should not feel obliged to wipe and clean counters, floors, bathtubs, showers, etc. Do the work yourself before the tenants arrive. However, it is acceptable to oblige your clients to clean up before they leave at the end of their stay.
