Hi,

I think your pack is great, very generous.
I would cut back the laundry detergent and leave a bit less, maybe 3/4 of the little pouches you add.
I think you could swap the Capri sun for water, I would definitely prefer that.
I think 2 bottles of wine is very generous. If you wanted to keep this I would leave a bottle of white in the fridge.
I think the tea, sugar and cream is a good idea from others and maybe a small loaf and butter in case folks get in very late and want to make toast.
But other than that it’s great.

Hi great pack. From personal experience, to save a quick trip to the supermarket on the way to the villa which isint always easy after a long day, I would love the pack to include enough to get by for the evening and breakfast the next morning then we could call in to supermarket on way home from parks on our first day which is usually an early finish due to time difference. I would be happy to pay the cost for this.

Some ideas:- beer/wine/soft drinks/large pizza/orange juice/bananas/yoghurts/croissants/bread for toast/butter/jam/cereal/tea/coffee/milk/
sugar/bottled water to take to park in morning plus a small supply of cleaning products and your COVID sanitising products are a great idea too.

hope this helps.

I currently have the following items in the pack I leave for guest's

1 x bottle of washing up liquid
4x dishwasher tablets
1x dish sponge
2 x dish cloths
2x bin / trash bags
3x small bottles of hand sanitizer
1x tub of anti bac wipes
1x 500ml bottle of liquid hand soap
2 x pocket packs of tissues
1x bottle of liquid Laundry detergent (approx. 20 loads)
1 x pack of ground coffee
4x Capri sun pouch drinks
1x bottle of white wine
1x bottle of red wine

The above is in addition to what the MC leaves out for guests which is 2 dishwasher tabs, 1x kitchen roll and 1 toilet roll in each bathroom along with a small bar of hand soap in each bathroom.

Looking forward to reading the replies.

Steve
Why dont you do a tick list on an email and see what the guests would use?

I absolutely love the washing detergent and use it all (don't listen to the people who say make it smaller )

We usually take the bottle of white to the beach with us. I think Peter had the red

I can't remember if we drank the juice but I agree with others about small bottles of water instead (just in case you're too tired to get the the shop).

Tea bags would be great but we always take our own anyway. We have to go out for milk so maybe a little bottle would be useful or some long life, enough for a cup or two?

I can understand the crisps too. If you had a small child who is hungry when they arrive then its a small snack for them without having to go out straight away. Mini pack of cookies too?

You'll never please everyone as we all have such different tastes. I would just go along with people arriving and too tired to go to the shop.

Perfect, thanks and I'll see ya in September

I too would probably miss the wine off. We are quite fussy with wine and would probably prefer a few beers and bottled water in the fridge. Definitely include some creamer and sugar, first thing I do is make a brew !
In a villa in Westridge 5 years ago the owner left a welcome pack and included a really cute little Disney Christmas decoration. We still put it on the tree every year and remember the villa.

Why not sufficient Dishwasher tablets to last the stay? It would annoy me to have to buy a pack if I only needed a few

I would ditch the alcohol and put in a pack of water too

Best welcome pack we received was everything we’d need for the first evening/morning so that we wouldn’t need to go to the shop when arriving late at night. We had a loaf of bread, butter, jams, milk, coffee, variety pack of cereals, oj, milk, water, and I think there may have been some fizzy pop too. Wine would be wasted on us.

The cleaning bits are very useful

Just found a not very good photo from my trippy

Most villas we have stayed in have not had a welcome pack, yours sounds very generous. I would definitely like the laundry detergent. I would also prefer enough dishwasher tablets for my stay. I wouldn’t need the dish soap and probably just one dish cloth would be enough. Some coffee, teabags and milk and sugar to make a hot drink in the morning and some bottled water would be useful. Some cookies and snacks would also be good. I also don’t think the tissues and sanitisers are necessary. The villa we usually stay at has a very well stocked pantry, with kitchen foil, spare loo rolls, paper towels, light bulbs etc in it. They also have a printer in the bedroom with a small cupboard underneath with stationary items in. We have never used the printer, but I have often wondered if any of the other guests abuse the kindness of the owners and take the things home with them. I hope not.

We wouldn't use the wine or Capri sun, but after a long flight a few bottles of water would be much appreciated.
