You own a property on
and would like to set up a set of rules to help you manage your vacation rental? It’s a good idea! A set of rules and regulations is a document that sets out the rules and conditions of your rental, so that everything runs smoothly for you and your travelers.

Here are a few steps to follow to create house rules for your Airbnb rental.

1. Define your expectations and ground rules

Before you start drafting your rules and regulations, it’s important to define what you want your travelers to do, and what you don’t want them to do. For example, you may decide not to allow parties or pets in your home. You can also specify arrival and departure times, as well as how the keys are to be handed over.

2. Specify the rules for respecting the environment

As a vacation rental owner, you have a role to play in preserving the environment. You can, for example, ask your travelers to sort their waste, not to wastewater or to respectelectricity consumption.

3. Indicate safety rules

It is important to specify
safety rules
to avoid accidents and problems during your travelers’ stay. For example, you can ask your travelers not to smoke in your home, to turn off electrical appliances after use, or not to open windows in case of fire.

4. Draw up your internal regulations

Once you’ve defined all your rules and expectations, it’s time to draw up your internal regulations. Pay attention to the wording of your sentences and the clarity of your document. You can also add concrete examples to make things even clearer.

5. Add your house rules to your welcome booklet
