The Door County Vacation Rental Market: How to Stand Out and Thrive

The vacation rental market in Door County is experiencing a leveling off of demand due to the cooling economy and travelers catching up on their delayed pandemic travel plans. With a drastic increase in supply, it’s more important than ever for owners to differentiate their properties and attract guests who appreciate unique features. In this blog post, we’ll explore strategies to make your vacation rental stand out and how partnering with DoCo Vacations can help you maximize your revenue and profitability.

Embrace Unique Design

Creating a memorable and visually appealing space is crucial to standing out in the crowded vacation rental market. Here are some basic tips to enhance the unique design of your property:

  • Mix styles and textures: Combine different design styles and materials to create an interesting and eclectic look that will leave a lasting impression on your guests.
  • Add statement pieces: Incorporate big pieces of art or bold furniture to create focal points in your rental that will captivate your guests.
  • Repurpose vintage finds: Blend new and vintage items, such as repurposed antique furniture or decor, to add charm and character to your space.

By embracing unique design elements, guests are more likely to choose your property and recommend it to others.

Highlight Prime Location

The location of your vacation rental can be a significant selling point. Be sure to highlight any nearby attractions, activities, or natural wonders that make your property an ideal choice for guests. This could include proximity to beaches, parks, hiking trails, or local events and festivals.

Offer Top-Notch Amenities

Amenities can play a huge role in setting your vacation rental apart. While luxurious features like hot tubs and game rooms are always a hit, don’t underestimate the value of simpler, budget-friendly amenities that can make a significant difference for guests:

  • High-quality Bluetooth speaker: Provide a Bluetooth speaker so guests can enjoy their favorite tunes throughout their stay. Better yet, add this Marshall Bluetooth Speaker to add a vintage design touch to this amenity.
  • Cozy workspace: Create a designated workspace with a comfortable chair and good lighting for guests who need to catch up on work or simply want a quiet place to browse the internet.
  • Reading nook: Set up a cozy nook with comfortable seating, soft lighting, and a selection of books or magazines, where guests can unwind with a good read and a cup of coffee.
  • Premium toiletries and kitchen items: Stock your rental with good quality soaps, shampoos, and conditioners for the bathrooms. Additionally, provide local coffee and other kitchen essentials to make guests feel at home and add a touch of luxury to their stay.

By offering these thoughtful amenities, you’ll enhance your guests’ experience and encourage them to choose your property over others in the Door County vacation rental market.
