Each property should be thoroughly cleaned and all linen changed between every booking. It is always a nice touch, (though not a requirement), that essential supplies such as toilet rolls, soap and kitchen rolls are available when guests arrive. Similarly, guests will appreciate a kitchen store cupboard that contains basics like salt & pepper.
Some Owners also go the extra mile and arrange an Arrival Pack with their Property Managers; which may contain some fresh foods like fruit, local produce, bread, tea, coffee and milk. You could also add various little touches like fresh flowers or a bottle of local wine - anything to make your Visitors feel welcome!
If the rental is for more than a week, it is a good idea to insist that the property is cleaned and the linen changed every week (Your Property Manager should liaise with the Visitor to arrange a mutually convenient time).
Property Managers serve as the key relationship between the Visitor and the Owner during their stay and so it is highly recommended that you are upfront and clear with them as to your expectations and any associated charges.
