Welcome packs and baskets
Don’t forget the welcome basket!
There is nothing quite like receiving a warm welcome when you go anywhere, the same definitely applies when you have a holiday home to rent out.
This is a really nice gesture that will get every stay in your holiday home off to the best possible start. It can also have the added bonus that it may very well increase the chances of repeat bookings and recommendations.
The added outlay for these baskets can easily be adsorbed into your letting fees.
What contents you choose to provide in your welcome basket depends on your target market. Our standard basket contains tea, coffee, sugar, milk, hot chocolate sachets and biscuits.
Some owners like to add to this by providing a pint of fresh milk, butter and orange juice in the fridge, along with a freshly baked loaf and bottle of wine.
Whatever you provide it will save your guests from going to the nearest supermarket on their arrival, or even going hungry if they arrive late, and the shops are not open to the following morning!
When it comes to luxuries think perhaps sausages, bacon and eggs, they are sure to go down well, and of course we will always try to make sure these are quality Cornish produce. Don't forget our famous Cornish cream teas, freshly baked scones, jar of finest Cornish jam and our delicious Cornish clotted cream. yummy!
Creating seasonal hampers
Another good idea is to create seasonal baskets or hampers, depending on the time of year. This could of course include Christmas cakes, mince pies or puddings, box of crackers even! How about Easter eggs or even Halloween treats, just let us know and we will do the best to fulfill your requirements.
Dogs like treats too!
If your property is canine friendly and your guests bring their dog, why not throw in some doggy biscuits. Everyone needs a treat when they go on holiday – even the dog!
There are many things you can do to make the most of a welcome basket/hamper. Add your own personal touch's too, your guests will really appreciate and remember that you went to the trouble of providing some treats for them when they arrive. So what do you want in your basket or hamper, let us know and we will put together whatever you want.
Your guests will also greatly appreciate an amenity pack being left in your property. Our standard pack contains toilet rolls, washing up liquid, liquid hand soap, refuse sacks, dishwasher tablets, sponge scourer, kitchen roll and j cloth.
Again though this can be changed to your own requirements.
