What Coffeemaker Do You Have?

As a property manager, your job is to supply the information they need before they arrive so they're relaxed and ready to go when they open the front door. A great way to do this is to answer frequently asked guest questions in your welcome email. Alternatively, you can send an arrival guide including answers to FAQs or a dedicated email addressing basic questions.

Giving your guests the right information before they ask eases their anxiety and saves you time — enough that you can reduce pre-arrival calls and emails by over 50%.

Here's a checklist of 20 questions property managers say guests ask most frequently.

  1. How do I get into the property?
  2. Will my GPS link to the property?
  3. How many parking spaces are available?

  5. Is the kitchen fully equipped?
  6. What kind of coffeemaker do you have?
  7. Is there a grill or BBQ?
  8. Are there special clothes or amenities I need to bring (rain gear, boots, bug repellant, etc.)?

About the Area:

  1. Are grocery stores, pharmacies and beer and wine stores nearby?
  2. Which stores deliver groceries and prepared foods?
  3. Are good restaurants, fine dining options, bakeries, sports bars and breweries nearby?
