sample vacation rental deposit refund letter (asking for review)When you're making contact with a guest to refund a security deposit, it's perfectly acceptable to ask them to submit a review. These guests likely treated your property well and enjoyed their stay, so it doesn't hurt to remind them about your online guestbook. It helps to provide the link to make it as easy as possible for your renters.

Here's a sample letter to give you an idea of how you might word your request.

Your name
Your address
Your City, State, Zip
Your Phone Number
Your email address
Your webpage address
