We’ve all heard the horror stories: You rent out your vacation home through a reputable site, and come home to find there was a ‘drug-induced orgy’ on the premises the night before. (Ok, that was just one horror story – but it’s pretty bad).
While those instances are clearly few and far-between, it can be disappointing to come home after renting your place and find things aren’t how you left them – beyond dishes being put away in the wrong place or furniture being moved. On the other side of the coin, it can be frustrating as a renter to get to your vacation rental for your dream holiday and find it’s missing things you need/were promised – including cleanliness, proper utensils/appliances, a bed (ok that would be VERY frustrating).
So here are some basic (and not so basic) etiquette rules for the renters and rentees of vacation rentals – try and keep them in mind, and try to keep the orgies within your own home – for everyone’s sake.
