The weather is getting warmer, and the sun is shining brighter. Vacation season is just around the corner, so if you own a rental property at the lake, the beach, or otherwise, it’s time to think about getting things ready.

Summer houses, B&Bs, or multi-unit buildings with common areas can be more than just an opportunity for extra income. These spaces offer you the chance to craft a different aesthetic than you have at home, leaving your unique sense of style in a new context.

In this blog, we’ll offer advice for adding outdoor furniture to your rental space, as well as, a few ideas for accessories and decorations. This will ensure all your Airbnb or Vrbo guests across the board have the best summer experience possible!

 

Initial Considerations

Before you add in furniture and decorations to your vacation property, be sure to take stock and consider who will use the space. While you do have the freedom to express your own style, keep in mind that unlike your home, the primary audience for your rental space will be short-term vacationers.

This may mean adding in more versatile arrangements with more seating. Consider conversation sets to accommodate larger family groups, such as our Cape Fireside set.

If you’re planning on opening your space to college students or non-family groups, you’ll want to ensure that your furniture is built to last. At Bahia Verde, our high-density polyethylene (HDPE) material provides a long-term durability that resists staining, and makes each piece easy to maintain (more on that later).

 

Short or Long Term?

Another important consideration is whether your rental will be for short term getaways, or longer-term leases that last a month or longer. People looking to rent long-term are likely to be more particular about form and function. They want to be sure the outdoor furniture on the property will feel welcoming to themselves, their family, and any guests that may visit.

As a rental owner, your job is to make sure they see the versatility, appeal, and comfort they desire. Bahia Verde furniture offers all three of these qualities, and lends a sense of permanence to your space.

When you post listing photos to attract tenants, the bright colors will catch their eyes, and you’ll have your summer home fully booked in no time!

 

Visual Appeal

Extra visual appeal can be created with the strategic use of property enhancing pieces, such as our Riverside benches along walls, walkways, and next to beautiful gardens. If your property doesn’t have a garden, potted plants add in some natural aesthetics.

If you’re renting out a house with a porch, the Riverside porch swings can help prospective tenants envision relaxed afternoons chatting with the neighbors. Rugs or porch mats are great ways to decorate, along with plants (whether real or fake) suited to a porch covering. For convenience, add in a side or conversation table so renters have a space for coffee, books, or snacks within easy reach.

Consider Your Location

Depending on where your property is located, appropriate furniture types may vary. Colors almost certainly will, so make sure to do your research. Bahia Verde’s colors are inspired by vacation destinations, so we’re sure you’ll find something you like. Coconut White, Seaglass Blue, Mangrove Brown, and Boathouse Red are just a few a examples of our summer-inspired colors!

Best of all, our product swatch boxes let you view the colors and material in person before you make your final decision! If you sign up for our newsletter, you can receive a kit for free!

Whether you’re on the lakeside or the beach, you can’t go wrong with Adirondack Chairs. Plus, matching Adirondack ottomans allow guests to stretch out and enjoy the view.

For additional seating options, a Riverside rocking chair can be just as relaxing when placed at the right viewpoint.

 

Upkeep and Maintenance

Upkeep is something we know can be hard, especially if your rental is far away from you. Time is money, so you’ll appreciate the benefits of Bahia Verde’s HDPE material. Maintenance is very easy: wash your furniture once a year before the vacation season, and it will look good as new.

Each piece is crafted to be weather-resistant, so your tenants won’t need to worry about pulling chairs indoors before an impending storm. Our outdoor furniture holds up to ocean air, sand, salt water, and sun, with a durability that ensures they last for years.

Besides durability, the vibrant colors are protected by UV inhibitors, so even if they’re left outside all summer, our products won’t fade easily. When you prep your space for the new year, a quick wash is all it takes to make the colors pop like they’re brand new! For additional care and maintenance tips, check out our care guide!
