    In Bath, the standard of short-let properties is high and there are plenty to choose from, so how can you ensure that your property stands out from the rest and has a healthy occupancy rate? ... By hiring Pass the Keys of course!

    The most important thing to remember is that first impressions really do count


    Our professional photographers will take great interior shots that will show off your property in its best light before we advertise your property on the UK's leading market booking platforms. You can help to achieve great photographs by taking some time to think about what home improvements you can make.  A few affordable tweaks such as replacing tired and outdated decor and furnishings, a new lick of paint and effective staging and decluttering can make all the difference. Bear in mind that it is vital that your property is immaculate before check-in. If you choose to partner with Bath's leading Airbnb management company, we will provide Airbnb cleaners who will leave your property spotless, time after time!

    In order to appeal to as many potential guests as possible, opt for neutral colour tones.  Whites, and light greys are the most effective way to make rooms feel bright, bigger and modern, incorporating pops of colour throughout to draw attention.  If you have a modern property, "Scandi style" with its light, functional and minimalist design would work well. If it is a period property go for heritage colours and add some unique vintage pieces of furniture. iI you are marketing one of Baths beautiful Georgian properties, due to their great room proportions, you could get away with choosing darker colours to give your interior the wow factor.

    Room by room, take the following recommendations into consideration and give your short let property a revamp to attract more guests. 

    1. Bedrooms

    Perhaps the most important room to your guest. The key to success in this room is to ensure your guests don't feel that their relaxation has been compromised because they have chosen your property over a hotel. Where space/budget allows it, upgrade double beds to King Size. It is also beneficial to have an option for the room to go from a king size to a twin, so it will appeal to friends travelling or families with older children, so if buying a new bed make it a zip and link. Pass the Keys provide hotel quality white bed linen and towels, but it's also advisable dress the bed with a neutral plain bedspread and cushions to compliment the white. Make sure bedrooms have bedside tables, lamps, a wall mirror and plenty of wardrobe space. Go for non-patterned curtains; a charcoal grey thick weave that is fully lined would be a safe choice.

    2. Bathrooms

    If the bathroom is looking a little tired, with outdated fixtures, fittings and tiles or suffering from traces of lime scale, damp or mould it is really important that it gets modernised. This is because bathrooms typically attracts the most guest complaints and are judged most harshly on their cleanliness. It is true that this can be an expensive project, but look at it as a long-term investment for your property.

    3. Living Space

    The lounge seating and dining seating should be spacious enough for all guests to sit together comfortably. It is important to generate a welcoming home away from home feel in the living room, so providing a good-sized smart TV and low-level lighting will help to create a cosy atmosphere. A sofa can be modernised effectively with new cushions, so make sure the cushion covers are removable and are suitable for the washing machine. If the living space is exposed, invest in some sheer blinds for privacy. A large wall mirror can make the space feel bigger and a framed print of Bath or map of Bath would be a lovely local touch.

    4. The Kitchen

    The advantage of staying in a short-let property is that you have the option of self-catering, so ensure that the kitchen is well equipped with stylish gadgets, modern cooking equipment, utensils and appliances. Canisters are advised so that Pass the Keys cleaners can leave complimentary tea, coffee and sugar somewhere obvious for guests. If the kitchen units are outdated but the budget doesn't allow for a whole new re-fit, then getting them professionally painted will make all the difference. Kitchen walls should always be painted using hard wearing durable paint and look freshest when painted a brilliant white.

    5. Outside Space

    If you have a garden make sure it is well maintained, as well as child and pet safe, this will increase your properties attraction to a broad range of guests. Have a usable table and chairs for alfresco dining.
