Turning Rental Woes Into Vacation Wows: Consistency is Key

Sara L. still remembers her family’s reaction to first seeing the beach house she had rented for their week-long vacation in Florida. 

“We were all so excited for that holiday – we’d been planning it for months. My parents were travelling with us, and my sister and her family were meeting us there. We drove down this tree-lined laneway, expecting to see the quaint, ocean-front villa from the photos online, and instead we pulled up to a really neglected property. I remember even my youngest looking out the window and saying, ‘We must be in the wrong place.’

“The paint on the outside was peeling, and the yard overrun with weeds. Inside, the furniture was worn and outdated and the place wasn’t well stocked. There weren’t enough towels in the bathrooms, or even enough plates or glasses to get through one day. We ended up buying some of the things that were missing, at our own expense.

“It was fine I guess, but the photos and reviews were clearly misleading. And it definitely wasn’t worth the money we paid. It added a lot of stress to that holiday, always worrying that my family wasn’t comfortable or enjoying themselves as much as they could have been. The host was polite but unapologetic, and in the end, I felt really burned. It turned us off from vacation rentals for a long time.”

This kind of experience with short-term rentals is unfortunately all too common. For guests looking to book a vacation property, the lack of consistency in the market can be frustrating and disappointing. But it certainly doesn’t have to be. This spring, Luxus Vacation Properties is launching a new way to ensure you get all the vacation wows you’re expecting – and none of the woes. And it all starts with the Luxus guarantee of an excellent stay at every property, each and every visit.



Subpar accommodations and misleading descriptions can quickly turn a dream getaway into a sad trombone moment.
