Top 10 Vacation Home Amenities

Aug 24, 2021

When you are considering a vacation home, what are your must-have amenities? Kong Vacation Homes, a vacation home rental agency with properties in Tampa Bay and Hallandale Beach, Florida, has the amenities you need to feel at home! Here’s our top ten list of must-have amenities for vacation rental homes:

1. Impeccably clean

The number one amenity that any vacation home can offer is a safe, clean space! Kong Vacation Homes follows an enhanced cleaning protocol at our properties to create a healthy living environment for your family. When you enter your rental, you’ll find a cleaning checklist from our staff, letting you know that the home is safe and sanitized. Each vacation home is thoroughly cleaned before and after occupancy, with extra focus on high-touch areas like kitchens and bathrooms. All linens, dishware, and other service items are washed between each booking. We also make additional soap and surface sanitation supplies available to you to use at your discretion during your stay. Even when it’s not a time of pandemic, the upkeep of our properties is a priority, and impeccably clean homes are always our goal!

2. Free premium Wi-Fi

With cell phone use ever-increasing and many people working remotely, a strong Wi-Fi connection is a must! That’s why Kong Vacation Homes makes sure that free high-speed Wi-Fi is available to all of our guests. When you check-in to your Tampa Bay or Hallandale Beach vacation home, you’ll receive the Wi-Fi password unique to the property. Kong Vacation Homes staff is always available to help you connect.

3. Extra amenities

Kong Vacation Homes are fully furnished and professionally designed with your comfort in mind. In addition to the beautiful and comfy furnishings, you’ll find lots of extras to make your stay special, like fully stocked kitchens including Keurig coffee machines, in-home washers and dryers, ceiling fans, and more. We provide high chairs and pack n’ plays for babies, as well as gaming consoles for older kids (and adults)! We think it’s the little things that mean the most to our guests, and these extra amenities make a big difference in choosing a vacation rental over a hotel!

4. Custom-curated welcome box

In anticipation of your needs and to create the experience of a “home away from home” during your stay, Kong Vacation Homes provides you with a custom-curated welcome box by GuestBox upon arrival at your rental! Your GuestBox is a handpicked package of luxury goods, including high-quality essentials and extras like toiletries, skincare products, snacks, and more. You will find travel-sized samples of high-end brands that are eco-friendly, innovative, and many are founded and led by female and minority entrepreneurs.

5. Enhanced security

If you are worried about the safety and security of your rental home, then you will not be able to fully enjoy your vacation! When you stay with Kong Vacation Homes, we want you to have total peace of mind! All of our homes feature Vivint Smart Home Security Systems, consisting of a control panel with a state-of-the-art color touchscreen, wireless security sensors that provide home security protection, and wireless smoke and carbon monoxide detectors that provide fire protection.

For additional security, Kong Vacation Homes also offers contactless check-in and check-out, providing your family with a personal access code to use as a virtual key.

6. Smart home technology

Along with security, your comfort and convenience are important to us. It’s our goal to provide your family with a home away from home, where everyone can stay worry-free. That’s why we have invested in automation technology at our properties – all Kong Vacation Homes are smart homes, featuring automatic systems to control lighting, climate, and entertainment!

All of our properties have air conditioning and a smart thermostat to ensure your comfort. (As a bonus to guests, Kong Vacation Homes management team also can troubleshoot any problems with climate control through remote access.) Smart lights are activated by a motion sensor, also saving energy and ensuring that you don’t have to worry about switching off the lights. Smart TVs are located in almost every room of the house, and we even include logins for your favorite streaming services!

7. Resort-like outdoor spaces

With inviting lounge areas and luxurious accents, such as outdoor Smart TVs, Kong Vacation Homes offer the best amenities under the sun! All of our single-family homes are beautifully landscaped, and many have heated pools/hot tubs, fenced yards, and furnished outdoor living spaces. Whether you’re relaxing on the screened lanai, sipping a sweet tea on the pool deck, or firing up the BBQ grill, we hope you will enjoy the amenities inside and out!

8. Flexible pet policies

Your pet is part of your family, and their experience is important, too! Our pet-friendly rentals provide lots of space for your four-legged friend to relax. Kong Vacation Homes requires a pet deposit when you book your rental. We also make reasonable accommodation to allow pets who serve as assistance animals, which includes animals who provide emotional support.

9. Dedicated property management staff

Through personal touches, attention to detail, and exemplary customer service, our team is personally committed to making sure your stay with us exceeds your expectations. We are a family-owned and operated business, and we care about your family! Our property managers are accessible 24/7, and we are here for you throughout your stay! We also hope that you will keep in touch as part of our social media community – and follow us on Facebook and Instagram @kongvacationhomes!

If there’s ever a maintenance emergency, you can rely on prompt and professional service from our partners at Homee On Demand!

10. Desired locations

Where your rental is located is another important amenity! Kong Vacation Homes are centrally located from major attractions in the popular vacation spots of Tampa Bay and Hallandale Beach.
