Guest Welcome Book & Local Travel Guide

My Kauai Vacation Rental introduces our very own Digital Guest Welcome Book & Island Travel Guide

Everything our guests will ever need to know before and during their stay. And all just a click away! Our Guest Welcome Book & Travel Guide will help our guests get comfortable and make our home their home. We used to use the same old binder ideas every other vacation owner tried, packed with the information we though they would need  and hoped they would be able to find and use. I always wondered, would it be left so our next guest could even find it? Would they even read it?

Now I’ve found and built a resource, I know everyone will be able to actually use. It’s our Digital Guest Welcome Book and a Travel Guide. It’s something that I send them link to, they download it and it provides them what they need to know about our home, the local area with guiding information like where’s the beach, the grocery store, and all the sights they should not miss right at their finger tips. Save a copy on your phone and even if you loose cell signal it’ll still function providing a guiding hand to our island of Kauai.
