Hop into Spring: 5 Tips for Prepping Your Airbnb for Easter
Spring has sprung, and Easter is just around the corner. As an Airbnb or vacation rental host, this is a great time to get your property ready for the holiday and attract more guests. With a little bit of creativity and effort, you can make your Airbnb stand out and provide a memorable Easter experience for your guests. In this post, we'll share some tips on prepping your Airbnb for Easter and making it more attractive to potential guests.
1. Add Some Easter Decorations
Easter decorations can make your Airbnb more festive and welcoming to your guests. You don't have to go overboard with the decorations, but a few well-placed items can go a long way. For example, you could add some colorful Easter-themed throw pillows or a wreath on the front door. You could also put some Easter eggs in a vase on the kitchen table or add a spring plant to the living room.
When adding decorations, it's important to keep in mind that not all guests celebrate Easter or may have different traditions. Be sensitive to this and keep your decorations tasteful and respectful of all guests.
2. Offer Easter-themed Amenities
Offering Easter-themed amenities is another way to make your Airbnb stand out during the holiday. For example, you could provide some Easter candy or chocolates in the kitchen or leave a basket of Easter eggs in the living room.

If you're feeling more ambitious, you could even provide an Easter-themed breakfast or brunch for your guests.
Another option is to offer some Easter-related activities or games for your guests. For example, you could provide an Easter egg hunt in the backyard or leave some Easter-themed board games or puzzles for guests to enjoy.
3. Update Your Listing Description
Updating your Airbnb listing description is crucial for attracting more guests during the holiday. Make sure you highlight any Easter-related amenities or decorations you're offering in your listing description. Use keywords related to Easter, such as Easter-themed, spring, or "holiday to make your listing more visible to potential guests.
You could also add some Easter-themed photos to your listing to showcase your decorations and create a more festive atmosphere. This will help potential guests get a sense of what to expect during their stay and may encourage them to book your property over others.
4. Provide Information on Local Easter Events
As a local, you probably know of some Easter-related events happening in your area. Providing information on these events in your Airbnb can be helpful for guests who are looking for things to do during the holiday. You could create a guidebook with information on local Easter egg hunts, festivals, and other events happening in your area. This will help guests make the most of their stay and may encourage them to come back for future holidays.
5. Make Sure Your Property is Clean and Comfortable
Finally, it's important to make sure your property is clean and comfortable for your guests. This may seem obvious, but it's especially important during holidays when guests may have higher expectations. Make sure you deep clean your property before guests arrive and provide fresh linens and towels. Ensure that all appliances and amenities are in working order and that there are no maintenance issues that need to be addressed.
In addition, consider adding some extra touches to make your guests feel more comfortable. For example, you could leave some Easter-themed bathrobes or DIY bunny slippers in the bedrooms. Be sure to provide extra blankets and pillows for the colder nights.
Prepping your Airbnb or VRBO for Easter is a great way to attract more guests and provide a memorable experience for them. Adding some Easter decorations, offering Easter-themed amenities, updating your listing description, providing information on local events, and ensuring your property is clean and comfortable are all great ways to make your Airbnb stand out during the holiday.
Wishing you and your guests a very Hoppy Easter from our Gnomes to all of your homes.
