- OK. Your guests are arriving today.…Did you remember to fold a point on the toilet paper?…Are the sinks and tubs dry and spot-free?…Is the chrome polished?…Did you put a chocolate on the pillow?…Make sure that everything looks amazing.…Stunning guests from the beginning means…you've made an emotional connection,…which leads to smiles and glowing reviews.…While I use digital door locks and I cherish them,…if you've agreed to meet to exchange keys,…why not offer to meet in the accommodation…and offer to show your new guests how everything works.…
It's a pleasant touch.…If you're nowhere near the property…and you're using a lockbox, a neighbor…or if you've mailed the keys in advance of the stay,…text, phone or e-mail to say hello…and ask your new guest to reach out…after a successful arrival and entry.…If you're sharing a bedroom or a sofa…arrange a time to meet with your guests.…Lock up valuables if it makes you feel more comfortable.…In a shared situation, things like beverages and food…are not labeled or restricted…
