While a welcome book is essential, not all guests will take the same time that you put into creating it to read the helpful content. As such, it’s recommended that you add Airbnb signs too to emphasize important instructions and help guests navigate their way during their stay.
Here are the most popular Airbnb signs to add to your short-term rental:
With the welcome sign, you can be a bit creative. You can, for example, use a chalkboard and personalize it each time by adding the names of your guests.
Let’s face it, one of the first questions that your guests will ask is what’s the Wi-Fi password. Now, imagine their frustration not being able to send that message because they can’t connect to your Wi-Fi.
Do everyone a favor and post Wi-Fi information in a strategic place. Free Wi-Fi is a feature that you want to advertise, not hide.
Many hosts add Wi-Fi information to their welcome sign. It’s one fewer sign to print and as it’s one of the very first things that they’ll want to know, it makes logical sense to add it here.
Like hotels and restaurants, Airbnb hosts unfortunately also need to remind guests about their smoking policy. It’s also a way to cover your back in case a guest didn’t read the rules.
Many hosts create a wall or nook that will serve as the perfect backdrop for taking Instaworthy photos. To encourage guests to take photos, be sure to add an inviting sign. It’s a great way to gather user-generated content that you can help with marketing.
Even if you don’t have such a photo corner, you can still add a sign with your social media handles. Your short-term rental might not get tagged in as many photos, but it can help to grow your number of followers.
Clogged toilets and new towels ruined by makeup stains are two of the hosts’ most common complaints. A single sign can address both of these issues.
In your bathroom, you can add a sign reminding guests not to flush only toilet paper and instructing them how to use your towels. For example, if you provide makeup towels, indicate which ones are allocated for this purpose.
While you’ll see on a marketplace like Etsy that some bathroom signs use humor, it’s better to keep it professional.
In your living area and/or kitchen, there might be appliances that guests are unfamiliar with like a state-of-the-art coffee machine. To ensure that guests experience all that your property has to offer, you can mention how to use such types of appliances.
The last thing you want to do is read in the review that the stay would’ve been much better if they knew how to switch on the TV.
If your property has a pool, you must add a sign next to your pool. Depending on your location, it could be a legal requirement.
Every year, one reads about swimming pool accidents. Use this as an opportunity to remind parents to supervise children and guests to keep safety gates closed at all times.
Are there any instructions for when it’s time to check out? A well-written sign, like the one from Etsy above, can be helpful to both your guests and the cleaning crew. You can use it to remind guests about checkout times and to turn off all lights and air-con, for example.
Then, while you’re at it, why not invest in a vacation rental software solution? It’s one of the best ways to streamline communication between guests and cleaners further.
