Find out why Rowena’s summer season has been her best yet for bookings.
The summer season is in full swing and I’m pleased to say it’s been our best yet! We’ve been pretty much fully booked for the whole of summer 2013 at Anarita Chorio with just a two-week gap left to fill in September. Fingers crossed they’ll get booked soon too.
We’ve already had some great feedback from our guests, including some useful, constructive comments. Some guests who stayed with us in May advised that while they absolutely loved the house, they felt it would benefit from having fly screens fitted. This is something we’d considered before but we were concerned about the costs involved. As mentioned in a previous blog, pretty much all our home improvement budget for this year was used to fix a leaking roof issue. So we didn’t think we’d be able to afford fly screens until next year at the earliest.
Well, that’s what we thought anyway! Then we received a last-minute enquiry for some dates in July. We replied promptly, sending a quote using the Holiday Lettings online booking tool, and to our delight we got a notification that the booking had been paid in full. Suddenly we had some extra funds to reinvest into our property, so we got on the case and the much-needed fly screens are now fitted and ready for our next guests!
So overall we’re celebrating a great summer season. How have your summer bookings been going this year? Any tips on how I can fill those September dates?
All the best!
