Speaking of linens: How many towels should you leave for your guests?

The unique thing about rentals booked through Airbnb, VRBO, and Homeaway is that, well, they're usually a home. More often than not, they're your home. So as you're prepping for your guest there are a few things to keep in mind. While your home certainly isn't a hotel, and likely costs less than a hotel, guests still expect certain hotel-level standards. Part of this includes leaving enough towels, and while we're at it - making sure they're still in good, fluffy shape. Whether you have a laundry machine in your home, or down the street, the best number of towels to provide is two body towels and 1 hand towel per guest with an additional 1-2 kitchen towels for the home. This number remains constant regardless of the length of stay. The reason? Some guests may prefer 1 body towel and 1 hair towel, or perhaps the towel doesn't dry quickly enough. Whatever the reason, don't be stingy. Something as small as a well thought out quantity of towels could be the line between a 4 and a 5 star review. Taking care of your guest will always make the experience more pleasant for all parties, and your reviews will reflect this.
