How to get Sedona short term rentals ready for guests.Sedona short term rentals are a booming business. For many Sedona residents, renting out a room or guest house is a great way to generate passive income. Arizona has very friendly laws toward short-term rentals. The key to making money as an AirBnB host is to make sure that your space caters to out of town guests and makes them feel welcome and comfortable. Here are a few tips so you can turn Sedona real estate into a five-star short term rental.

Start with giving your space a thorough deep cleaning. Hiring a professional cleaner is a good investment. Once it’s spotless, make sure it’s comfortable. The beds should be cozy, with quality mattresses, pillows, and sheets. Make sure you have extra blankets and quilts for guests to use, especially in winter.

In the bathroom, plush towels, brand-new travel size shampoo, conditioner, and soap are great touches. You can also consider leaving bubble bath, bath salts, or bath bombs for extra pampering.

If your space has a kitchen, make sure it’s equipped with enough dishes and flatware for your guests. Give the knives a quick honing. A couple of sturdy pots and pans will give guests the option for cooking a meal. It’s also a nice touch to have a few basic items. Water bottles, a bag of local coffee, tea, hot cocoa, fresh fruit, a bottle of Sedona wine or a six-pack of Sedona-brewed beer are all welcome.
