Here are some quick tips that will make your guests feel at home during their stay.

Cheat sheet

Create a home cheat sheet that provides your guests with the Wi-Fi code, instructions to turn on the television, garage code, and any other amenities they may need. Be sure to include your address, landline number and emergency contact information.

Spare samples

Hotel toiletries and deluxe samples placed in a glass jar look elegant displayed in the guest bathroom. Your guests will like the availability of extra products, especially if they may have forgotten something.

Fresh flowers

Plants or well-crafted flower arrangements in the guest room add brightness and freshness that anyone will appreciate.

Cozy essentials

To create the ultimate retreat for your guests, place a basket in the corner with items that will make them comfortable. Think soft throw blankets, magazines, bottled water, snacks and a reading light.

Freshen up

Make sure to leave extra towels and washcloths in the bathroom so guests can always use dry ones. An extra toothbrush is a nice touch, too.

Sense of smell

Adding a candle or diffuser to the guest suite is always a good idea. Be careful, however, because not all guests love the smell of warm vanilla. Avoid polarizing scents and use neutral fragrances, such as fresh linen. A small bottle of room or linen spray is also a great addition to the room.
