Rentals that feel like home are more likely to be booked!

Living Room

This is one of the most important rooms in the house. It’s not only because that’s where your guests will spend most of their time. First impressions matter. The living room is the first space your guests sees when they open the door. You will need to keep in mind the size of your space when purchasing furniture. You need the essentials, but less furniture also creates a roomier feel.

Living Room Items:

  • Couch: Choose one that will fit in your space without taking up the entire room. Slipcovers are a great investment. Understand that rental units have more wear and tear than if you were to live there yourself. If you want an extra sleeping space, a pull out sofa bed is often a great idea as it will allow you to bump up your nightly rate. Choose neutral colors. Beige, tan, or gray will not age as quickly. Accent it with pillows to add colors that are more replaceable.

  • Armchairs can be a great addition.

  • Add end tables, coffee tables, consoles.

The bedrooms in your property are what keep people coming back. Comfortable beds can make all the difference, especially after long travel days.


One of the big reasons people choose a vacation rental property over a hotel is that you get a full kitchen. Make sure your appliances work well! We have many great packages to choose from.

There are a couple of ways to go with this. If you have space, purchase a good quality dining room table that seats at least four and is easy to wipe down. See our Riverside Dining sets.

LIberty Furniture

If you have a breakfast bar or kitchen island, stools are great for pictures and a nice addition to the description. It is always enjoyable at the bar.

If your property has a patio or yard, it is well worth the investment to get a grill. We carry Coyote Outdoor.
