Property of the Week

 

The US has some truly spectacular mountain ranges; one of my favorites is the Grand Tetons.  There is so much natural beauty and wildlife in the mountains; the perfect place to get in touch with nature.  I found a lovely little cabin on the Idaho side of the Grand Teton National Park to share with you this week.  Take a look at property 788677vb!

 

 

What attracted me to this property:


This property is unique! I love the design features of the house including all the windows for natural light and the open concept floor plan.  The location of this property is fantastic as it is near Grand Teton National Park, but it is not in the major tourist destinations.

 

 

 

 

What I love about this listing:


The photos are great! They are well staged and well it, and the one of the sunset from inside the cabin is beautiful.

 

The description is brief but quite a fun read and does a good job describing the property. 

 

The reviews are honest and fun to read and talk about the awesome virtues of this cabin including the cleanliness.

 

 

What could be improved:


There are not enough photos! I would love to see more photos of the kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and exterior. Is there a back yard? Is there space on the vanity for my toiletries? Are there supplies in the kitchen? Is there a closet or dresser in the bedroom?  More photos would answer these questions for me!

 

The owner should seriously consider adding more to the description. I learned from the reviews that there is a steep ladder into the loft, which might not be ideal for people with small children or older people. There is a photo of the ladder and I thought it was shelving in the kitchen.

 

Finally, the owner should consider responding to his wonderful reviews. A response to a review shows the owner is engaged and cares, an important quality of a great owner.

Property of the Week

 

Every year my best girlfriends and I plan a getaway weekend to a fun destination.  This year we’re going to Las Vegas and this home is on my list of places to stay! There are some things we cannot live without on our girl’s trip including a pool and hot tub. I found us the perfect getaway in property #790483vb.

 

 

What attracted me to this property:

 

This house has an extravagant number of amenities that any group would have a fantastic time using. There’s a beautiful pool and hot tub.

 

There are loads of comfy outdoor seating areas to spend time chatting with your friends.

 

My favorite amenity is the game room with the full wet bar.

 

 

 

What I love about this listing:


I love the photos, as illustrated by the sheer number of photos in this post. The photos are well lit, perfectly staged and really do a great job selling the property to perspective travelers.

 

 

The description on this listing is fantastic highlights all the great upgrades that this home has.

Finally, the reviews are terrific and fun to read.

 

What could be improved:


This listing is well rounded, my kudos to the owner!  The only thing that could be improved would be for the owner to respond to all the reviews. Responding is a great of showing future travelers that you’re a caring engaged owner.

 

This home is truly an oasis in the desert!

Property of the Week

 

Winter is almost here and ski season has begun! While I am terrible at skiing, I love the idea of a snowy vacation. The thought of snuggling up with my husband in front of a blazing fire with a mug of hot chocolate is quite appealing.  With that in mind, I chose a property in beautiful Stowe, Vermont – take a look at this rustic log cabin: #269485.

 

What attracted me to this property:


This listing had me at the thumbnail photo and the headline.  I want to go and play in that snow and then warm up in front of the fire! The headline reassures me this place has everything that matters to me in a winter rental with a hot tub, fireplace and wi-fi!

 

What I love about this listing:


The pictures are terrific! They are well lit and staged appropriately.  I really love that the home is shown in both Winter and Summer. It is outstanding that the owner has a 100% response rate within a few hours - you really can’t get much better than that!

 

 

 

What could be improved:


It was very difficult to find anything this owner could do better!  The only suggestions I would make is to respond to every review and to pick a different featured review, the one the owner has selected is now nearly 7 years old.

 

Bring on the snow and ski season!
