Static caravans have long offered excellent potential for those seeking a holiday home to call their own in a destination of their choosing. From beaches to countryside, remote locations, and tourist hotspots, a static caravan is the perfect versatile accommodation option which is great for weekend breaks or prolonged summer stays.
But as you browse the selection of static caravans for sale, you might be wondering whether it’s worth the investment – or, more importantly, how you can earn that investment back. Which is where rental opportunities come in.
Static caravans are an ideal solution for those seeking a holiday home which is more affordable, with caravans often more flexible and with access to better locations and more rural surroundings than properties. To help you tap into that market and create a successful rental option with a static caravan, here are three ways to enhance your caravan for the rental market.
1. Keep It Neutral
One of the easiest tips to follow is with regard to décor – with the most popular rental accommodations being those which keep it clean and simple. Especially as static caravans tend to be more contained, keeping the décor neutral will ensure that the entire space feels bright and open, making the most of any outside space you have and transforming the views beyond into the hero feature.
2. Take Good Photos!
This is true whether you are listing a property or static caravan for sale, for long-term rent or as a holiday let. For the purposes of the holiday market though, photos are crucial – especially those which highlight the surroundings and really emphasise the selling points such as location, environment, and views.
Taking photos which span the inside and outside of your static caravan will manage expectations and really make clear what you are granting access to for guests, with an extra piece of advice being to take photos throughout the year and in all seasons to highlight the benefits of staying in your caravan in winter, summer, and the seasons between.
3. Put Out A Few Local Goods For Guests To Enjoy
The beauty of a static caravan is that it allows the occupant or owner to fully immerse themselves in a community that they may otherwise only be able to access from the outskirts. Often, hotel stays, and even rental cottages are on the periphery of communities, while caravan sites are part and parcel of the local surroundings.
Emphasise and celebrate this by gifting guests a basket of local goods as and when they check in – alongside information about the area and things they can do. If nothing else, it’s details like these which lead to good reviews from guests, whose recommendations will be passed on online and by word of mouth to other potential guests who may decide to stay with you in the future.
