vacation rental guest manifesto

Getting your guests to behave!

The success we had with the “Vacation Rental Owner Manifesto” prompted us to do something similar for guests. So we created a manifesto aimed at reminding guests to remind them to take care of our properties, our cherished homes and at times… problematic neighbours :). The “Vacation Rental Guest Manifesto” was then printed on fridge magnets, and we gave thousands away to owners and property managers at the VRMA conference in New Orleans. The feedback was unexpected: We had people running after us asking for more “I have 50 properties, can you give me.. huh… 49 more?!” “These are incredible! Do you sell them?” No, in fact we don’t sell them, they were meant as a gift. So today, we’d like to give everyone the opportunity to print the manifesto for their rentals in a big poster size (A1). Just download it from the article post and give us a thumbs up by sharing!
