When you start a holiday rental there are numerous ways to communicate your offer. In my job as a creative director I can write down quite a few options. It’s not rocket science, it’s merely straight forward thinking about the who, when and why’s?
Who would be interested in your rental and how much do you want to adjust to their needs?
When would these people most likely rent your home and when do you want to be there yourself?
Why would somebody rent your home and how do you give them reason?
The Who should be the easiest to make it your home. The more you adjust the house to others than your own needs, the less it will feel natural. You’ll make it a #fail from the beginning. With the water mill our needs are leading. It should be nice, comfortable, clean and breathe the right atmosphere to invite friends. For us the main idea of the water mill is to be there with friends for a short get-away. Long walks, prepare a good dinner with local ingredients, maybe even some from our own garden. Eating, drinking, fireplace.
