This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from Jenn.
I have a very practical question I hope you’ll help me with. I recently had the pleasure of listening to your Luxury Workations training, and I’m now in the process of planning my own workation.
Here’s my question. I’m researching locations and am considering renting a luxury home on the beach where my registrants will work and stay. I noticed this wasn’t something you suggested. Is there any reason why this wouldn’t’ be a good idea?
Hi Jenn and thanks so much for your question!
I’m so glad that you have decided to host your own luxury workation.
I personally don’t prefer to rent luxury homes for my workations for a number of reasons.
I really enjoy using resorts because there are fewer things my team needs to plan and prep.
1) For example, if you rent a home, you’ll need to bring in outside catering for meals, and outside maid/cleaning service, as most homes do not include daily service in their rentals.
2) You’ll need to think of things that need to be stocked for your guests’ convenience like coffee, beverages, and toiletries.
3) I also love the concierge service a resort provides. They are always a huge help in planning travel and outside excursions and meeting guest requests.
All this being said, depending on the theme of your workation, and the rental properties you find, renting a house may be a very practical idea.
Just make sure you think through all the details a resort normally provides before signing your rental agreement.
All the best to you and your first luxury workation!
