It is nearing the end of the guests holiday so it’s time to serve up a dessert in the way of a reminder or two.

As an owner it is a real pain if guests forget things when they leave the property at the end of their holiday.

Not only do they expect you to hunt around for a pair of lost reading glasses, an odd sandal or  iPod headphones they also expect you to wrap them up and send them in the post.

The day before they leave, send them an email reminding them to check the following areas when packing, the washing line, the washing machine, the tumble drier, under the beds, all wardrobes, cupboards and drawers, the bathroom, bathroom cabinet and the car if it’s a rental.
If you provide a Playstation, Xbox or similar get them to check that the children have not left a game in the drive. The same applies to an iPod docking station.

At the same time give them a gentle reminder about filling in the guest book and leaving an online review.
