Tip: Stock up on towels and bedding – your cleaner and property manager will thank you! Get throws for your sofas and chairs as these will help keep them in excellent condition for longer. Take care to keep the toiletries and cleaning materials well stocked. Guests often bring their own toiletries, so you will find that a small number will be enough for a relatively long period. It is always helpful for guests to have access to these things if necessary.
