Are you school holiday ready?

Can you believe the winter school holidays are already approaching?

It’s time to get out the winter woollies and hot chocolate, and get your hotel, motel, luxury home or Airbnb ready for families to have some fun!

So how do you make your accommodation service holiday ready?

Treat the kids

It’s time to stock up on all the kids favourites, Milo, Coco Pops, Weetbix and Nutri-Grain for breakfast, and good ol’ spreads like Nutella, Vegemite and of course, Peanut Butter!


If you know you have a family coming to stay over the holidays, why not go that extra mile and leave a welcome gift, a selection of treats and snacks that will leave the whole family satisfied!

Make it cosy

The winter chill has already hit most of Australia, so get prepared and make sure your guests have all the creature comforts during the colder days and nights.

Fluffy bathrobes and slippers are a nice touch, and your guests will love having a few sachets of hot chocolate on hand during those frosty mornings.

We have a range of blankets, including the beautiful, fluffy and cosy ultimate fleece blankets in stock, a game-changer over the cooler nights. They are anti-pill, luxurious and come in ultra cool denim, perfectly paired with this year’s pantone colour, Ultra Violet, and perfect for snuggling up on the couch or in front of the fire.

Fun and games

If it’s cooler outside your guests will probably want to spend more time indoors, so you need to make sure there are plenty of things to do. Of course Wifi is important, and online movie streaming services like Netflix or Stan will keep the whole family entertained throughout those chilly nights.

Don’t forget board games and books, which are also good when it’s too cold to play and explore outside.

A local directory

There’s no doubt your guests will want to get out and about during their stay, especially if they have kids! To ensure they have plenty to do, have a directory of local attractions on hand. This could include a list of all the local restaurants and cafes, attractions or weekend markets. If your accommodation is pet friendly, why not include a list of places that welcome furry friends.

These are just a few ways to prepare for the upcoming school holidays, but we’re sure you can come up with more ideas that will wow your guests over the winter break and make this holiday one they will remember!
