This blog is to give you a few ideas to help the new local guests enjoy your Whistler property, who travel differently from our past destination guests.
We're used to having visitors arrive by coach and rent skis. They travel lighter due to luggage constraints. This winter, most visitors arrive in their own vehicle now and come heavily loaded with coolers, suitcases and gear. Expect this trend to pick up through the summer of 2021! You'll likely need to beef up your instructions for parking and gear storage. Please make sure you have room in your closet for the coolers and extra boxes etc., they have. Signage clearly on the back of your suite door showing where ski and bike storage areas are, with access instructions.
People are eating in and cooking more in their rental. This is a great time to add to your kitchen supplies, Instant pot, rice cooker, waffle iron, and be sure these items are in your descriptor for your unit. Have some tips on restaurants that deliver with great takeout to help support the local businesses.
Neutrals in your colour scheme appeal to the broadest range of tastes. Put the punch of colour in your accessories, art and accents. Choose art related to the area, whether it be photography, prints, or historic pieces from the museum. The Whistler area has lots of talented and affordable artists to support, whose work will bring joy to your guests.
In the bedroom, nothing beats crisp white sheets. This detail conveys cleanliness and a hotel-like feel.
Add some puzzles, various books, and information on easy walks and sights to see to appeal to the coming getaway guests this spring. It's been a tough winter, but a deep clean and a few new editions will boost your coming bookings!
