When it comes to deciding between a vacation rental and a hotel, one amenity that hotels tend to offer more than vacation rentals is a gym. There is a rising trend among vacationers in booking wellness experiences. In fact, according to an Airbnb wellness report, the wellness travel movement is a $639 billion global movement, and wellness bookings increased 500 percent from 2017 to 2018. If you own short-term rentals, offering fitness equipment and opportunities for exercise could be a golden strategic move. We found some affordable fitness equipment from Amazon that doesn’t take up too much room. You can put these items in a closet yet advertise that you have them.
This is a very basic item you can offer that guests will greatly appreciate. The Sivan Health and Fitness Exercise Mat is durable, easy-to-clean, and comes with a removable carry strap. Roll it up for easy storage.
