There are those who prefer to go to the countryside and those who go to the beach. During the holidays, many opt for hotels, but there are also those who resort to a vacation home. Do you know what care is needed to rent this type of property? Be careful, as there can be many surprises. Negotiating a remote accommodation makes us ignore important issues and can lead to certain pitfalls.

Check very well in advance where this furniture is located. If possible, find out what the incidence of sunlight is like and if there is natural ventilation. Ask for details about all the existing water, electricity and internet points and how security is performed on site. Discover the most important reference addresses nearby – especially banks, police stations and health posts. This whole “support network” should make you feel more secure wherever you are.
As for the chosen house itself, it is important to evaluate all its facilities beforehand. As it is a holiday accommodation, it must have several open leisure areas and very well integrated with the external environment, such as garden areas.
Prefer structures with cross ventilation, which make the environments more refreshing.
Coatings should also help to keep interior temperatures low and be easy to clean, not posing a risk to user safety. And the decoration of the rooms needs to present all the necessary items for the usability of the property.
Don’t forget to find out what private facilities are like. It is important that there is space for the rest of the whole family.
And a number of bathrooms compatible with the total number of guests is essential. Also assess the dimensions of these environments – especially if someone in your family has special needs. These are details that can improve or hinder your summer experience.
After you and your whole family are already installed in the vacation home, it is already possible to think about how to customize the environments of this property so that everyone can feel comfortable.
The first step you can take is to change the position of certain strategic pieces of interior decoration. For example, rotating sofas and beds towards an external landscape; placing extra seats near the dining table, such as benches and stools; and bring lounge chairs close to the pool, in the garden.
In a second step, you can remove all those accessories that only make the environments look more cluttered and warm, like blankets and heavy carpets.
Leave in the rooms only those items that are pleasant to look at, made of light materials or coverings that do not heat up with the touch of the body; pieces that make the decoration look clear, but at the same time cheerful; and objects that encourage family fun.
Vacation homes have certain particular characteristics. When renting or buying a property already decorated, you can evaluate these issues.
Usually the interiors of these residences are decorated with elements that refer to nature, such as beaches and fields. In these spaces, we see the use of many elements made by hand – such as those made in molds, wefts and manual paintings – such as straw baskets and clay vases. This mixed with pieces of glass, metal and porcelain. The scenery as a whole looks simple, but comfortable too.
If you are staying for a long time, you can think about customizing the decor of your vacation home.
It is interesting to spread many vases of foliage and natural flower arrangements around the rooms, which will make the rooms more fresh and fresh.
Transform bathrooms into small SPAs, with new bath towels, trays with samples of bath salts and aromatic candles.
Always have fresh fruit in the kitchen.
In the living room, portraits of special moments with the family.
In circulation, objects that refer to the hobbies that you most like to practice in the summer, such as surfing.
In the bedroom, display beauty items such as colorful sarongs, bags and straw hats
Maintenance of environments
Even if you are on vacation, you do not need to be careless with the organization and cleanliness of the environments you are living in. Even if the vacation home is not yours, it is necessary that you do all the necessary basic maintenance during the period you are using the property.
Amid so much fun and games, it is easy to get out and spread dirt on the floors of the house. Don’t let everything pile up.
Daily, sweep and vacuum up to the corners of the environments – mainly to remove any sand particles that may scratch these surfaces. Also quickly wipe with a cloth moistened with water and mild soap in the areas that received some splash of drinks and food, so that they do not stain.
If you really want to guarantee your family’s comfort in this vacation home, worry about washing the bed linen at least every week, and every two days, the face and bath towels.
Frequently wipe the mosquito nets with a cloth moistened with water and vinegar to remove dust particles and allow air to pass. And spray the rooms with a home smell – like bamboo – to make the rooms look more pleasant.
Remember that, more important than personalizing the decoration of a house, it is seeking to clean and organize your environments well. This alone will help to make the corners of this property healthier and more inviting for rest and relaxation. And that is what we want at this time of vacation, isn’t it? So, choose your travel destination and enjoy.
