Guest Reading Materials 101

Reading materials are a must in any income property.

Many guests enjoy reading during their down time, so having something readily available that they can pick up and read while they have their morning coffee, settle down for the evening, or if they’re stuck inside on a rainy day will be appreciated. They can also be a great accent piece on a coffee table or provide information for your property’s community.

Below are a few of our reading material recommendations for short-term rentals:





Select a few recent editions of relevant content to your property’s area. If your area has their own tourism magazines, be sure to subscribe and keep those on hand. Whether it’s fishing, general travel, or cooking with wine, you can’t go wrong if it makes your guests envision themselves doing an activity nearby. ⠀⠀⠀



Pick up a couple of Heathers Picks from your local Indigo that your guests can crack open when they’ve put their feet up to relax for the evening. If they’ve forgot to pack their favourite novel or they finished theirs too quickly, having a back-up book goes a long way.


local literature

For example, a book on the local history or brochures on places or activities to check out nearby. Guests love to learn about the community they are staying in and if you can teach them a thing or two about the area with a coffee table book, you’re on your way to creating a repeat guest.


kids books

Whether it’s bedtime or a rainy day, having a couple of fan favourite children’s books are great to have on hand for your family travellers. Some kids love travelling and some can get homesick quite easily. So if you can make a little kiddo happy with a book to make them feel the comforts of home, then that’s a win.
