If you’d like to go an alternate route than DIY projects around the house, providing amenities such as boogie boards, sand castle tools, Frisbees, volleyballs, noodles, beach umbrellas and a cooler can greaten your chance of attracting out-of-towners. One of the biggest annoyance for travelers is having to rent or buy these items, which are hard to fly back to and from with or are immediately donated or discarded after use. Let your renters feel welcomed and want to rent from you, by making their vacation hassle free!
